马来西亚中华总商会(中总)总会长拿督林国璋局绅
就促进国民团结发表文告
 
马来西亚中华总商会(中总)支持掌管国民团结事务的首相署部长丹斯里佐瑟古律的建议,废除国内官方各类形式表格上填写种族栏目,以建立单一国民身份,促进国民融合和团结。
也是国家团结咨询理事会成员的中总总会长拿督林国璋局绅表示,我国首相一直鼓吹“一个马来西亚”理念,马来西亚人本身就是一个民族,不应以种族身份来区隔。要达致国民融合及团结,政府应该公平对待各种族,加强国人爱国精神,一视同仁不分种族和宗教地扶助弱势群体。
 
中总认为,国家领导人应具有很强的政治决心,采取果断的行动阻止那些刻意破坏种族和谐的极端行为及言论以取杀一儆百之效,才能有效地制止这种不负责任的行为及言论继续破坏国内的种族和谐关系。视而不见、听而不闻只会助长这种不负责任的行为和言论,引发种族关系紧张,影响国家稳定。
 
秉着加强马来西亚全民团结和社会融合,以及收集、研讨和提呈对有关影响国民团结和融合的建议予国民团结咨询理事会考虑,包括政府政策、法令、条例及其他有关事务,以期建议获得纳入《国民团结蓝图》,中总于2013年11月成立了“国民团结组”,并委任署理总会长拿督戴良业为主任,以及拿督陈镇明为副主任。中总也积极参与国民团结咨询理事会的会议和活动,促进政府及私人界在拟定国民团结政策时更密切的谅解与合作。
 
中总的国民团结组也成立了5个工作小组,即促进国民和谐的法律和政策、国家建设和多元文化的谅解、包容性发展、青年和团结、以及国民融合,并正在草拟建议书以提呈给国民团结咨询理事会考虑。中总分布在全马各地的属会顷在收集会员商家对促进国民团结和融合的意见,中总欢迎各界人士,如果有任何建议及意见反馈,可通过中总提呈给国民团结咨询理事会。
 
ACCCIM’s Press Statement on National Unity 
Issued by Dato’ Lim Kok Cheong, President of ACCCIM
 
The Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia (ACCCIM) support the suggestion of Y.B. Tan Sri Datuk Seri Panglima Joseph Kurup, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department to abolish the 'race' column in all official forms in the country in order to form “one nation” to enhance national cohesion and unity. 
 
Dato’ Lim Kok Cheong, a member of National Unity Consultative Council (NUCC) cum President of ACCCIM is of the view that Malaysian is a race itself and Y.A.B Prime Minister of Malaysia has been advocating “1Malaysia” concept, in this connection, Malaysian should not be divided by race identity. To achieve national unity and cohesion, the Government should treat all Rakyat 
equitably and impartially, to strengthen the spirit of patriotism and helping the disadvantaged groups regardless of its ethnicity and religion. 
 
ACCCIM is of the view that top political leaders must have strong political will and determination in taking decisive actions to stop extremists from making irresponsible racist remarks and actions that tend to destroy the trust between races and undermine racial harmony. Merely ignorance do not have permanent cure but instead it will catalyst the growing of making those negative remarks, 
which will cause racial tensions and affect the stability of the nation. 
 
With the objective to enhance national unity and social cohesion, and to collect, study and formulate views on issues affecting national unity and social cohesion for consideration of NUCC, including government policies, legislations, regulations and other factors so as our proposals will be incorporated in the “National Blueprint for National Unity”, the ACCCIM has established a National Unity Committee in November 2013 and appointed Datuk Ter Leong Yap, Deputy President of ACCCIM and Dato’ Tan Tian Meng as Chairman and Deputy Chairman of this Committee. ACCCIM has been actively participating in NUCC’s meetings and activities so as to bringing about closer understanding and cooperation between the government and private sector in the formulation of national unity policies. 
 
Five working groups have been formed by the ACCCIM National Unity Committee, i.e. Policy and Legislation Promoting National Harmony, Nation Building and Cross Cultural Aspects of Ethnic Relations, Inclusive Development, Youths and National Unity as well as National Integration. ACCCIM is in the process of drafting a memorandum for submission to NUCC. ACCCIM is currently soliciting feedback and proposals from members of Constituent Chambers on promotion of national unity and cohesion for incorporation into the ACCCIM memorandum. Public are welcome to submit feedbacks and proposals to ACCCIM for onwards submission to NUCC.
