With perseverance, Sarawak will be fully developed by 2030

Date:

KUCHING:  Utilities Minister Datuk Seri Dr Stephen Rundi Utom believes that with perseverance and with our Anak Sarawak spirit of ‘Agi Idup Agi Ngelaban’ (fight until death) among its young people, Sarawak can achieve its dreams of becoming a fully developed state by 2030.

As Sarawak worked hard to achieve this goal, it would also work hard to implement all the projects planned for the state under the 12th Malaysia Plan, he added.  

The Utilities Minister pointed out that along the way, inevitably, there would be a lot of adjustments to ensure the success of all the projects and planning.

“As stated by the Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg, the Sarawak’s Post Covid-19 Development Strategy (PCDS) 2030 that we have is comprehensive.

“Our plan is to make sure that Sarawak will be fully developed by 2030. Whatever that needs to be done such as infrastructure must be developed as Sarawak plans to have a high-income economy by then,” he said.

 Rundi was speaking at a press conference on the Head of State’s Birthday Celebration at Bilik Mesyuarat Utama, Tingkat 2, Wisma Bapa Malaysia, Petra Jaya yesterday (Sept 27).

On the infrastructure development in the state, he added, “We try to cover as much as possible. We even built bridges using our alternate fundings because we have to move fast.

“We are thankful with what the chief minister has been doing in fast tracking the development in Sarawak.

“We hope that the Pan Borneo Highway project will be completed on time because there were many projects that were delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic as well as the movement control order (MCO),” he said.

With the economy slowly opening up, Rundi urged everyone to stop politicking.

“It is a waste of time. Instead, focus more on the development of Sarawak,” he said.
