KUCHING: The Sarawak media has come in for praise for its reports on sustainable economic growth and welfare of the people.
Petronas Sarawak general manager Zulaihi Mantali said the company’s initiatives and efforts through its corporate social responsibility (CSR) will not have been possible without the participation and support of the media fraternity.
“Thus, I would like to thank the media in Sarawak for the continuous support of our CSR efforts through reports and features that highlight the positive social impacts of our initiatives,” he said at the the Petronas-KDJA Media Night here last Friday.
Zulaiho was confident that more strategic partnerships could be formed to work out workable solutions to uplift the local communities’ quality of life.
Jointly organised by Petronas Sarawak and Kuching Division Journalist Association (KDJA), about 200 media practitioners attended the event themed “Disco Night Fever”.
The event witnessed Sarawak FM radio presenter DJ Yuzz winning the Best-dressed Male of the night while Sarawak Public Communications Unit (Ukas) reporter Nadea Melissa won the female category.
Among other activities featured were lucky draws and on-stage entertainment.
Also present were Kuching Division Journalist Association (KDJA) president Jacqualine Atiqah David, Malaysia LNG Group of Companies head of Public Affairs Suryani Dohan and Petronas Sarawak head of Media Relations Johannes Ridu.
