A New Chapter
Just five months ago, three ministries – MCI, MCCY and MSF were established from the restructuring of MCYS and MICA. In making the decision, PM wanted us to focus better on key portfolios - social and family issues for MSF, community bonding and sports for MCCY, and communications and information work for MCI. Given the needs of an evolving society in a dynamic global landscape, it is timely for ministries to have a sharper focus on their areas of responsibilities.
