KUCHING: Stimulating the property sector should be a continuous effort by all developers, said Assistant Minister of International Trade and Industry, Industry Terminal and Entrepreneur Development Datuk Mohd Naroden Majais.

The assistant minister believes that the property sector should continue enhancing their customers’ quality of life by developing accessible and well-planned products as an initiative to address the impact of Covid-19.

“We believe that the property market and the nation’s economy go hand-in-hand so that we can be able to start moving and functioning again,” he said during the opening ceremony of the Hornbill Networks Consortium’s office and launching of the Semariang Avenue Sri Pertiwi Affordable Housing Project at Gala City Street Mall here on Sunday (Sept 6).

In declaring his interest on the Semariang Avenue Sri Pertiwi Housing Project spearheaded by Hornbill Networks Consortium, Naroden also lauded the developer’s decision to proceed with its project.

He described the initiative taken by the company as far-sighted and brave, despite the challenging times.

“This is a sign of bravery. They are brave to venture into this sector.

“Such a move would definitely help to slowly stimulate our state economy. The development of affordable houses is vital for the benefit of our community.

“With consistent local spending, local demand grows and this will slowly trigger our economy to pick itself back up,” he added.
