CM confident S’wak can recover

Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg

SARIKEI: Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg is optimistic Sarawak can recover from the economic impact of the movement control order (MCO).

He pointed out work on many development projects had begun after a long delay brought by MCO due to Covid-19 in the state.

“This will enable the economy to recover,” he told a press conference after officiating at the ground breaking ceremony for the Integrated Administrative Centre (IAC) here yesterday.

Abang Johari pointed out with the revival of the state economy, more business opportunities would be available.

“As you know, the supply chain will be there … When you start a project, the rest will come in from the production of building materials for us to carry out our projects,” he said.

The chief minister also said Sarawak was very fortunate as three years ago, he had started the digital economy initiatives.

“We can see during the past three months, many are using technology, there are more online transactions and online business opportunities. Students are also studying online.

“This means that we are ready for the digital economy,” he said.
