New Straits Times - - News -

A BOOK on Trans­for­masi Na­sional 2050 (TN50) was launched at the De­wan Rakyat yes­ter­day.

Ti­tled Dasar Buku Ne­gara dan TN50: Per­juan­gan Yang Perlu ,it was launched by Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mu­lia.

The book was com­piled by Sun­gai Be­sar mem­ber of par­lia­ment (MP) Tuan Budi­man Mohd Zo­hdi.

Budi­man said he hoped the book, pub­lished by Malaysian In­sti­tute of Trans­la­tions and Book, would be a ref­er­ence for Malaysians to bet­ter un­der­stand the TN50 pol­icy.

“The Na­tional Book Pol­icy has been re­ferred to since the 1980s and it needs to be up­dated to be more in­clu­sive and aligned with the dig­i­tal age while gain­ing the public’s in­ter­est to read,” he said.

Pandikar, in con­grat­u­lat­ing Budi­man, said by pub­lish­ing the book, the MP did a great ser­vice to Malaysians and fel­low elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives in the De­wan.

“It’s not easy to de­bate and write but he did it,” Pandikar said dur­ing the launch, which was at­tended by Jo­hor Baru MP Tan Sri Shahrir Abdul Sa­mad.

The book re­tails at RM20 each.
