Innovation must take place in the workplace for Malaysia’s economic growth to achieve the desired progress, said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Idris Jala.

Speaking at the launch of the Kuala Lumpur Innovation Forum 2010, Jala said that the Government had implemented several innovative methods of delivering desired results.

“The police have successfully lowered the street crime rate by 38% this year after the Government implemented an incentive giving RM500 each for everyone stationed at the best-performing police station,” he said, citing that as an example of innovation at work.

Organised by the Science, Tech¬nology and Innovation Ministry and the Malaysian Foundation for Innovation (YIM), the forum aims to provide an opportunity for professionals from the business, academic, technology and industrial fields to share innovative and creative practices.
