Dawama Sdn Bhd in deep financial trouble
Reported in Berita Harian that Dewan Bahasa dan Pusataka's printer and distributor of the primary school text books is in deep financial trouble. About 400 staff have been ordered to take no pay leave as the company cannot pay for their salaries and daily running of the company.
So, parents, don't be surprised if the primary textbooks for the coming 2012 school year will be in short supply. Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka has promised that supplies will be available and is trying to outsource other printers. But the legal wrangling between Dawama dan Dewan Bahasa may see a major problem next year.
