KUALA LUMPUR: The Federal Territory Information Department will further enhance its series of explanations on the Goods and Services Tax (GST) if people are still unsure of the advantages, says its Director, Aziman Hasan.
He said in the Federal Territory to date, the level of awareness among the public was still satisfactory, as they lived in an urban setting.
"They are better exposed to information on the GST, compared to those in some other areas or states," he told reporters after a briefing on the GST organised by his department here, for government officers.
Aziman said soon after Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak tabled the Budget 2014 in Parliament, the Information Department was asked by the Finance Ministry to undertake a series of briefings to create awareness of the GST.
"The briefings, held throughout the Federal Territory, began with community leaders," he added.
Aziman said the government, through Komuniti 1Malaysia (K1M), will work towards providing detailed information to the community on the GST.
K1M, with a membership of 1,200 units and comprising government agencies and non-governmental organisations, has already gone to the ground nationwide. -- BERNAMA
