Nancy vows to do her best


KUCHING: Newly reappointed Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri vows to do her best in facing the challenges of helping the tourism and culture sector.

“I would like to express my appreciation to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob for the trust given to me to continue serving the people as a member of the Cabinet for the portfolio of Tourism, Arts and Culture,” she said.

She said this in a statement today (Friday) in conjunction with the announcement of the new Federal Cabinet line-up by the Prime Minister earlier the same day.

She noted that, as stated by Ismail Sabri, appointed ministers must show good performance within 100 days.

“To the working team under the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, let’s get together to move forward and make it happen!” said the Batang Sadong MP.

Nancy was first appointed as Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister in former Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s Cabinet last year.

From 2016 to 2018, she oversaw a number of agencies, including the Malaysian Innovation Agency (AIM), Malaysia Nuclear Power Corporation (MNPC), and Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MiGHT).

She held the post of Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Legal Affairs Division) from 2013 to 2016.

Nancy was among the four Sarawak MPs reappointed as full ministers today (Friday), the same number of full ministers from Sarawak as under the previous federal administration under Muhyiddin.

The other ministers are Senior Minister of Works Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof, Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi, and Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar — whose portfolio has changed from Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Minister in the previous administration to Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Law) now.
