MP calls on chamber to empower rural folk

Date:

BINTULU: The Sarawak Chamber of Bumiputera Entrepreneurs (DUBS) branch here has been urged to focus on programmes in villages and longhouses and not just in urban areas.

Bintulu MP Datuk Sri Tiong King Sing said this could help empower and improve their living standards to some extent, especially people in villages and longhouses who have interest in venturing into entrepreneurship.

Aside from entrepreneurship courses, he suggested that the chamber organise courses to educate members on how to collaborate for improvement in the field of entrepreneurship.

“If you can work together and stand shoulder to shoulder, you will be able to achieve and grow your business,” he said at the DUBS Bintulu Branch Ngiling Bidai ceremony on Saturday (June 18).

In addition, he reminded the members to maintain and strengthen the existing unity and racial harmony.

This, he said, was because harmony and unity were two important elements that need to be defended by the multi-racial and multi-ethnic community in the country.

At the ceremony, Tiong also announced a grant of RM20,000 to DUBS Bintulu Branch to carry out activities or courses.

DUBS Bintulu Branch chairman, Udie Entigar was also present.
