    THE AGENCY, A TYPE THAT EXISTS NO WHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD -- MAY SET A NEW PATTERN FOR DEVELOPING COUNTRIES, THE MALAYSIAN PRIME MINISTER, TUNKU ABDUL RAHMAN, SAID IN KUALA LUMPUR TODAY (WEDNESDAY).

    THE TUNKU, OFFICIATING AT THE LAUNCHING CEREMONY AT THE MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR PARLIAMENT HOUSE, ADDED THAT IT WOULD SET A HIGH STANDARD OF REPORTING THE NATIONAL NEWS.

    THE MINISTER OF INFORMATION AND BROADCASTING, INCHE SENU ABDUL RAHMAN, THEN PRESENTED A CHEQUE FOR 500,000 MALAYSIAN DOLLARS (58,000 STERLING) TO THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD OF GOVERNORS AS THE FIRST INSTALMENT OF THE GOVERNMENT'S LAUNCHING GRANT.

    THE BOARD OF GOVERNORS CONSISTS OF EDITORS FROM GOVERNMENT INFORMATION SERVICES AND LEADING NEWSPAPERS FROM FOUR LANGUAGE STREAMS -- ENGLISH, MALAY, CHINESE AND TAMIL.
