“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.”
