Mayor rallies media to push council agenda forward

Date:

MIRI: Mayor Adam Yii Siew Sang hopes to work in tandem with the media here in bringing to fruition Miri City Council’s (MCC) four-year strategic plan.

“I anticipate that 2022 will be another eventful year for MCC as we are gradually implementing various developments and programmes under the MCC Strategic Plan for Years 2021 to 2025,” he said a media night hosted by the council on Sunday night.

He said  it was the council’s vision that Miri City can be further developed through the concerted efforts of three state assemblymen in Miri City together with other wakil rakyat in Miri Division in establishing a Greater Miri. 

“All these planning and the incoming programmes will need the support and participation of the people in order to be a success. In this respect, members of the press will play a very vital role,” he stressed.

Towards this end, Yii strongly believed they can count on members of the press to play their role effectively in that aspect.

“For MCC in particular, we are grateful that members of the press have given us a fair share of coverage as you all have given space to more than 114 press statements released by the council throughout the year,” Yii said.

“A big ‘Thank You’ to you all for your contributions,” he asserted at the gathering attended by more than 20 local journalists.

“Along the way, we may come across some critical remarks against the council, nevertheless, it is our principle to be ready to accept constructive remarks and criticism as we deem, as a local authority, we should be able to withstand and digest such feedback if we want to progress and further improve our service delivery to the public,” Yii added.

Also present were Assistant Minister I of Tourism,Creative Industry and Performing Arts Datuk Sebastian Ting Chiew Yew, deputy mayor Julaiho Mohamad, event organising chairman Bhagwan Singh and  Northern Sarawak Journalist Association (NSJA) president Andy Jong Wan Joon.
