During his three-year term as the people’s representative, Huang said he had upgraded basic infrastructure for  schools, churches and longhouses in the urban and rural areas.

“I’m also very concerned about education because I know it’s the only way to get out of the shackles of poverty. In the face of such a lack of awareness, I have been working hard to improve the school infrastructure in my area.

“Not only that, I have also provided various forms of assistance including school uniforms, shoes and bags to keep young people in schools.

“I believe that knowledge and skills are capable of improving the economy while benefiting all levels of society,” he said at the People’s Leadership Council at Wan Soon restaurant here yesterday.

Huang added he had organised many programmes  to benefit the people.

“I will do my best to assist the people on any issues that may arise, especially those involving mutual interests.

“Therefore, I hope those who need assistance, especially in infrastructure such as roads and others, to submit their applications as soon as possible  to the   Repok Service Centre,” he said.

Huang also  thanked Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg for implementing high impact projects for the people in Repok constituency.

“Among them are the construction of the Jalan Sungai Pasi to Sibu, the construction of the road to Tanjung Manis and more. This shows that he is very concerned about the needs of the people. 

“I urge the people to continue giving their full support to the Sarawak government under the administration of the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) so that the development that we plan will go on,” he said.

Huang  also held a community meeting at Lau Chik Ping’s house in Sungai Merudu.

Both programmes received overwhelming response from the local community. Also present were the Sarawak United People’s Party Committee (SUPP) and community leaders.
