Actions, not words

The State of Selangor in Malaysia is currently experiencing rising levels of inflation. The State government, recognising that this is not sustainable if Selangor wishes to move up the economic performance league table, has declared 2008 as a 'year of productivity'.

So far, so good. However, I have seen no evidence of what this means in practice. ... what are the priority areas, how will they help organisations raise productivity, what are they doing about infrastructure. (Note: these things MAY exist, I just haven't seen them.)

The lesson. Rhetoric is easy. Meaningful action is much harder. But rhetoric solves few problems!
