Get feedback before policy changes

It must have been a baptism of fire for newly minted Human Resources Minister M Kulasegaran.

Following the outcry over his announcement that foreign cooks would not be allowed to work from Jan 1, next year in restaurants serving Malaysian food, the very next day he said it was just a proposal.

The minister’s announcement was surprising in the first place. He had, after all, met with some stakeholders, namely restaurant owner associations, to get their take on the proposal. They had been told to come back with their feedback in a week.

So Kulasegaran caught them by surprise as he made the announcement before getting their feedback. Many expressed outrage. The minister must have had his own reasons for making the premature announcement.
