Motac to empower talented PwD artists: Tiong

Minister also says has identified improvement areas in several policies under his portfolio

KUCHING – The Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry (Motac) will look into the plight of physically-challenged artists who are talented in creative drawing, said its minister Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing.

Besides that, Tiong said his ministry will also assist artists and culturists to improve their welfare and ensure they are not sidelined.

“I will ensure that Motac creates more opportunities for them to develop their talents in the future,” the Bintulu MP said in a Facebook post yesterday.

Tiong said after a week of being appointed as the tourism, arts and culture minister, he has already identified several policies which need improvements.

“In the past week, Motac has reviewed and assessed several policies under its portfolio.

“There is no denying that some of the fields and policies have weaknesses, which we are working to improve upon,” he added.

Tiong said he had also received numerous constructive criticisms and feedbacks to improve the tourism, arts and culture sectors.

“I have read them thoroughly. I appreciate them and thank all the stakeholders,” he added.

Tiong acknowledged that the people have put a high hope on the unity government under the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

He expressed confidence that all ministries and departments will be working closely together in making sure that the whole government is operating smoothly.
