Director-General's Message

KP JKT Dato Noor Ihsan

Assalamualaikum W.B.T. and Greetings

Welcome to the official portal of Local Government Department (LGD). I hope that this portal will help visitors to access information related to the main role of LGD, which is to assist Local Authorities (LA) in providing municipal services to ensure well-being of the people. As the main source of information for the public, LGD will ensure that this portal delivers only reliable and accurate information relating to the organisation. Any views and comments pertaining to the improvement of this portal are welcomed and highly appreciated.

LGD is the agency responsible for formulating relevant policies and providing advices to improve the quality of service delivery of Local Authorities (LA).

2020 has been a challenging year for us, nationally and globally. COVID-19 has taught us many lessons especially in practising new normal to break the chain and to stay tough during unprecedented event.

For 2021, I hope that all LGD team will continue to excel and enhance their productivity to provide the best service for the nation. LGD is committed to implement government policies which are in line with the aspiration of the current leardership to ensure the well-being of the people. LGD is also driven by Wawasan Kemakmuran Bersama (WKB) 2030 which aims to provide decent standard of living to all Malaysians by 2030 and will implement programs accordingly to achieve this objective.

I believe that good governance and integrity should be the main core in civil service delivery. Empowering governance through transparency and accountability is the key success and will reduce negative perception towards civil service. Therefore, the quality of integrity should be nurtured and prioritised especially in combating corruption in the civil service.

Last but not least, I hope that LGD team will continue to excel as civil servants and make LGD one of the best agencies in the civil service.

Thank you.
