HEAD of State Tun Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud has called on the private sector and all communities in the state to give their full support and actively participate in the Post-COVID-19 Development Strategy (PCDS) 2030.

He said the PCDS 2030 is a long-term development plan with Sarawak’s aspiration to become a thriving society driven by data and innovation so that everyone is able to enjoy economic prosperity, social inclusion and a sustainable environment.

“PCDS 2030 will change the structure of the economy, modernise and improve productivity efficiency, increase household income and ensure environmental sustainability,” he said in his address at the 19th State Legislative Assembly (DUN) sitting on Tuesday (May 17).

Taib said he is confident that the Sarawak government has drawn up a comprehensive implementation plan and ensured that all development projects can be implemented effectively in order to benefit the people.

“I also urged all government implementation and monitoring agencies to monitor the implementation of PCDS 2030 projects and plans to achieve the desired outcomes and targets,” he said.

With the full dedication and commitment of everyone, he said he is confident that in the next few years, Sarawak’’s development landscape will change and the economy will continue to thrive.

On another note, he said he is grateful that the Sarawak government is in a good financial position as it is able to provide assistance to alleviate the financial burden of the people, small traders, entrepreneurs and business companies affected by COVID-19.

“To address the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg has approved eight Sarawakku Sayang Special Assistance Packages amounting to RM5.7 billion from April 2020 to June 2022,” he said.

Taib also took the opportunity to thank all the frontliners, local authorities, and all government departments and agencies involved in the mission to curb the spread of COVID-19.
