Chance to finish unfinished work


KUCHING: Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi has pledged to continue his unfinished work following his reappointment as federal Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister.

The Kapit MP expressed his thanks to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, and Chief Minister and Gabungan Parti Sarawak chairman Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.

“I accept with an open heart and greatly appreciate my reappointment as Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP).

“It is a great trust and responsibility for me to continue all initiatives and efforts to safeguard the interests of consumers and domestic businesses in the country,” he said today.

Nanta said his previous 17-months tenure was not without its challenges but was made easier with the cooperation of his deputy minister and top KPDNHEP officials.

“When I left following the resignation of the eighth prime minister, there were many plans that had been drawn up to help consumers and the business community.

“With my reappointment, I am committed to continuing the stalled planning which is largely focused on the government’s efforts to help revive the people’s economy as well as the country’s retail and domestic trade sector.

“I would also like to thank all the industry players who have given me words of encouragement over the past week and share their appreciation for all the efforts that KPDNHEP has made to assist the domestic retail and trade sector.”

He said he would continue his unwavering commitment to his duties in the interest of the people and the country.

“Industry players also expressed the hope that all the efforts that have been planned can be continued and improved from time to time.

“Efforts to combat Covid-19 and at the same time revive the country’s economy need to be fortified, requiring the cooperation of all parties.

“I would like to call on all parties to stop politicking and give the prime minister a chance to lead the country out of the economic and health crisis.

“This is the time we must focus on working together for the sake of our beloved country.”
