KKCCCI to ren­der full sup­port to new govt

The Borneo Post - - HOME -

KOTA KINABALU: Kota Kinabalu Chi­nese Chamber of Com­merce and In­dus­try (KKCCCI) hopes the new state govern­ment will get down to busi­ness of run­ning the ad­min­is­tra­tion as soon as pos­si­ble now that the state cabi­net has been formed.

Its pres­i­dent Datuk Michael Lui Yen Sang yes­ter­day con­grat­u­lated the min­is­ters and state min­is­ters ap­pointed to the state cabi­net led by Chief Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Shafie Ap­dal.

Now that the state cabi­net has been formed, he said it was time for the min­istries to get on with work.

“Af­ter all, the rakyat have ex­pressed their strong de­sire for a change in regime in the 14th gen­eral elec­tion (GE14). The peo­ple have high ex­pec­ta­tions on the new govern­ment,” he said.

He said KKCCCI would ren­der full sup­port to the govern­ment and would work closely with the ad­min­is­tra­tion to fur­ther the eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment in Sabah and Malaysia, pro­mote good govern­ment poli­cies and cre­ate a pros­per­ous so­ci­ety.

Lui also be­lieved that the creation of the three new min­istries, namely Min­istry of Health and Peo­ple’s Well­be­ing, Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion and Innovation and Min­istry of Law and Na­tive Af­fairs, re­flected the state govern­ment’s se­ri­ous­ness in the claim­ing for de­vo­lu­tion of power per­tain­ing to health and ed­u­ca­tion af­fairs in the state.

“This is a ma­jor step for­ward in the pur­suit of Sabah rights and au­ton­omy. I be­lieve these two min­istries will have a ma­jor break­through.”

Ad­di­tion­ally, he said the re­brand­ing of the Min­istry of In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment to the Min­istry of Trade and In­dus­try in Sabah would strengthen in­dus­trial de­vel­op­ment in the state.

Lui said KKCCCI would set up a meet­ing with the min­is­ter in the near fu­ture to dis­cuss ways to ex­pe­dite in­dus­trial de­vel­op­ment in Sabah.
