Need to focus on recovery efforts


BINTULU: There is a need to focus on efforts to drive the country’s recovery so that all Malaysians can return to living comfortably.

This can be done in the spirit of Solidariti Keluarga Malaysia which is the core of our government’s leadership, said Bintulu Port Holdings Berhad (BPHB) Group Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Mohammad Medan Abdullah.

But he acknowledged that people were faced with various challenges following the COVID-19 pandemic, including those of Bintulu Port.

“Bintulu Port has played its role as one of Bintulu’s urban development drivers, especially for the past 39 years, and it is no exception in contributing to the country’s economic recovery.

“As the only deep sea port in Sarawak, Bintulu Port is indirectly a catalyst for the development of the Sarawak Corridor Of Renewable Energy (SCORE) in encouraging foreign investment, especially in the Samalaju Industrial Park.

“Today, Bintulu Port and Samalaju Port work together in navigating and developing industrial economic growth in the vicinity of Samalaju Industrial Park and Bintulu Area,” he said at the BPHB Group’s Bertuntong Raya 2022 ceremony at one of the hotels here yesterday afternoon.

He stressed that Malaysians should be grateful for the blessings of peace and harmony as a result of political stability and cooperation from the Malaysian Family, despite the world facing serious geopolitical risks at this time.

Among the critical crises of the moment, he said, were the conflicts between Russia and Ukraine, Palestine and Israel.

“This is the importance of the meaning of peace and harmony enjoyed by Malaysians of various races and religions.

“Alhamdulillah, we still have the opportunity to celebrate the festival in a peaceful and lively atmosphere,” he added.

Medan added that the practice of ‘Open House’ which is a cultural pillar among the community further strengthens the friendship between all races in Malaysia.

Also present were BPHB Group Senior Manager of Corporate Services, Maslihah Tioh; Chief Operating Officer of Bintulu Port Sdn Bhd, Matshalleh Mohamad Etli; Chief Operating Officer of Samalaju Industrial Port Sdn Bhd, Eizam Ismail; and Chief Operating Officer of Biport Bulkers Sdn Bhd, Wan Mohamad Zaidi Wan Kadir.
