The speedy blooming of Information Technology and globalization has made English proficiency as a crucial element in most countries in the world especially the developing countries. Foreign investors appear to prefer English speaking countries for business purposes. Malaysia is known as one of the developing countries that produces many natural resources such as rubber, tin and petroleum. In response to these advantages, the government sector especially in the area of agriculture, industrial, import and export control and tourism should emphasized on the improvement of English communication skills among the employees to cater the foreigners who have come to visit or migrating in the country. Globalization has put all nations on a competitive level and the organizations especially from the government sectors need to become more competent in hiring fluent English skilled employees. Therefore this study focuses on whether the government employees with low English fluency level are able to deliver the tasks according to the required standard.
