More govt agencies to offer services at Kelantan RTC — Ali Hamsa

KOTA BAHARU: More government agencies will make available their services at the Kelantan Rural Transformation Centre (RTC) to meet the people’s needs, Chief Secretary to the Government (KSN) Datuk Seri Dr Ali Hamsa said.

He said currently, 32 government departments and agencies had made available their services at the centre.

The availability of such services at one place seems to provide so much convenience to the public and it will be given added value, he told reporters after visiting the RTC at Tunjung here yesterday.

The Kelantan RTC, opened by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak last May, draw an average of 4,000 to 5,000 visitors on normal days, between 8,000 and 10,000 people on public holidays and 10,000 to 15,000 people when it is made the venue for special programmes or carnivals.

Some financial institutions and private companies also made available their services for the public at RTC.

Ali said a surau, costing RM300,000, and a RM100,000 futsal court were being built at the RTC to provide additional facilities for visitors and traders there.

He said the Kelantan RTC, which also served as the centre for collecting and marketing of agriculture produce and products, also recorded an encouraging business performance.

The sales value of agriculture product for this year is expected to exceed RM200 million, higher than the targetted sales for his year which is RM180 million, he added.

He said the presence of RTC had enabled the rural residents to increase their income as they no longer had to rely on middlemen to market their agriculture products and produce. — Bernama
