Key to developed-state status by 2030

Date:

KUCHING: The state government is relentlessly working to turn Sarawak into a developed state by 2030, said Agriculture assistant minister Datuk Dr Abdul Rahman Ismail.

He said a close government-people relationship is important to ensure that every development project is implemented for the benefit of the people.

An example, he said, is Dewan Kampung Tegarai which is almost complete.

“We expect it to be completed within a month according to schedule. This year we allocated RM50,000 to lay concrete in and around the hall,” he said after visiting Kampung Tegarai Rural Transformation Programme (RTP) project in Limbang recently.

Apart from Dewan Kampung Tegarai, Dr Abdul Rahman also visited a bridge built by a logging company to replace the old bridge which previously obstructed water flow in Sungai Tegarai causing flash floods to recede slowly.

He also visited a road leading to Kampung Tegarai Jetty which is not far from Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Kubong.

There, he received an application from the village head to upgrade their river jetty.

Earlier, Dr Abdul Rahman who is also the Bukit Kota assemblyman, inspected Phase 1 of Dewan Kampung Berawan which has been completed.

“This year, we will complete the second phase, which is the wall and stage in the hall.

“Kampung Berawan this year also has a concrete road built for RM300,000 and also a road leading to the local cemetery costing RM500,000,” he said.
