MIRI: The As­so­ci­ated Chi­nese Cham­bers of Com­merce and In­dus­try of Sarawak (ACCCIS) hopes to work hand-in-hand with the Sarawak gov­ern­ment in ad­dress­ing some is­sues re­lat­ing to the state’s econ­omy.

Lead­ing a del­e­ga­tion on a courtesy visit on Chief Min­is­ter Datuk Pat­inggi Abang Jo­hari Tun Abang Openg at his of­fice in Kuching re­cently, ACCCIS pres­i­dent Lee Khoi Yun said the as­so­ci­a­tion hopes the visit could nur­ture a bet­ter re­la­tion­ship and co­op­er­a­tion be­tween it and the state gov­ern­ment.

“The eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment in Sarawak was hugely par­tic­i­pated by ACCCIS mem­bers. Hence it is our ut­most con­cern to have the state gov­ern­ment’s sup­port, es­pe­cially in high­light­ing is­sues re­lat­ing to eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment,” Lee said in a press state­ment re­leased Thurs­day.

The courtesy call saw ACCCIS present a Me­moran­dum on Cur­rent Is­sues to the CM, out­lin­ing its con­cern and sup­port for pos­i­tive de­vel­op­ment and views, as well as rec­om­men­da­tions on re­solv­ing cur­rent is­sues.

“The meet­ing was a fruit­ful one and we ap­pre­ci­ate our CM for the op­por­tu­nity granted to us, and his will­ing­ness to dis­cuss and lis­ten to the views of the pri­vate sec­tor,” said Lee.

The del­e­ga­tion com­prised ACCCIS deputy pres­i­dent Tan Jit Kee, vice-pres­i­dent Dr Hii Sui Cheng, sec­re­tary-gen­eral Lee Khim Sin, as­sis­tant sec­re­tary­gen­eral Vin­cent Lu Yew Hee, trea­surer Sim Soon Tian and coun­cil mem­bers Dr Christo­pher Ngui Siew Ling, Ko Wai Neng, Ho Siew Hua, Al­bert Sim Yam Leong, Lai Chau Liong, Chai Voon Tok and Dato’ Dr Ngu Piew Seng.
