Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on engaging bloggers:

“Therefore, instead of just criticising them (the new media) or running them down, the best thing to do is to engage them. Hopefully they will understand our perspective.”

Najib said this during a question and answer session at the Asia Media Summit 2008 here yesterday.

In an immediate response, blogger Ahirudin Attan (Rocky Bru) welcomed Najib’s announcement that the Government would respond to allegations, saying:

“This is really good. It’s better late than never and it’s something for the blogging community to rejoice because blogging is about interacting with each other.”
