Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh, greetings and best wishes to our prosperous Manjung, The City of Tourism and Maritime.


First and foremost, I would like to show my utmost appreciation to Allah SWT because with His permission and will, we managed to wade through 2021 smoothly and heading towards 2022 without any complications.


I am very grateful throughout 2021 because Manjung Municipal Council (MPM) has succeeded many achievements especially in information technology and communication aspect, even though we are currently facing major challenges such as COVID-19 pandemic. In accordance to the Perak Government’s agenda for 2021 which is to stabilize the public delivery system as well as to spur digitalization culture and modernization, MPM has taken the initiative to create an online service gateway myMANJUNG on 1st July 2021 and has been launched on 19th July 2021. The existence of the myMANJUNG application has increase the service system qualities which no longer require for the customers to go to MPM Customer Service Counter and in line with the effort to contain widespread epidemic like COVID-19.


On the other hand, MPM also launched myPATIL Digital License on 9th December 2021 which has become the first digital license in Malaysia based on smart technology, Internet of Things (IOT) which replace the unconventional method in a form of papers and board licenses around the business premises in Manjung district. myPATIL Digital License gives off many benefits to business owners and MPM.  Therefore, I sincerely hope that the community in Manjung district would use its beneficial traits to deal their businesses conveniently and quick-access also to get used to the changes of digitalization lifestyle.


In 2021, MPM also got the Golden Award Regional Innovation Showcase on Team Excellence (RISTEx) Northern Region for BDR@MPM and Water Hunter Projects, Bronze Award in Virtual Malacca International Intellectual Exposition (V-MIIEX) for Decoration Zone Project (Innovation and Outbreak-vention category), Champion of The Cleanliness of  Public Toilet Category in conjunction of The National and Environmental Health Day, authorization in Compliance of Standard Accounting System for Government Agencies (SAGA) for Accounting and Financial Application System, Security Risks and Compliance Certification (ISMS) or ISO/IEC 27001: 2013 for Public Complaint Management using ePBT System and achieving first place for Category 1 : COVID-19 Transmission Prevention in Safety and Health Intervention and Innovation, Perak State Rank  2021.


Therefore, MPM management would like to extend appreciation towards the Perak State Government for always giving the chances and supports as well as the government and private agencies, non-governmental organization and community leaders for extending their helping hands.


Lastly, I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year 2022 and in hope that everything that has been planned and can be implemented without further delays so that MPM will be more competitive and hope to reach newer heights as well as wishing Manjung township to live in prosperity and harmony.


Thank you.


Manjung Municipal Council.
