As a chamber of commerce
that continues to stand firm in
Let me assure you that we are a business friendly government. With this pledge, we will continue to work hard in ensuring a conducive investment climate and we will also strive to maintain positive economic growth. This is our commitment to the business community, and this will be done through the implementation of numerous policies and initiatives that are aimed at bringing more development for the people.
It also cannot be denied that the economic prosperity we enjoy today is the fruit of political stability and a government administration that strives towards greater efficiency and transparency. These crucial factors are further strengthened with the spirit of unity, cooperation and harmony that exist among our people, who come from diverse backgrounds. Staying united and respecting diversity are a way of life, and are positive traits that are further upheld through 1Malaysia that was introduced by our Prime Minister, Yang Amat Berhormat Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak. Unity through 1Malaysia also helps create a conducive environment for businesses to flourish.
I also wish to share that the government is sensitive to the needs of the people, regardless of religious or ethnic backgrounds. Each year, the Sabah State Government allocates funds to Chinese schools and places of worship in order for these institutions to carry out their activities. It is a fact that we are able to assist the various communities in the state – and this is made possible by our ability to maintain a politically stable government, and one that is always sincere and which commands the undivided support of the people.
I wish to encourage you to
increase cooperation with other chambers of commerce, especially those which
are based in
I also wish to urge you to close ranks, and to provide undivided support to government efforts so that we can continue to enjoy political, economic and social stability. The BN government works on consensus. We are open to constructive criticisms, feedback and ideas. Any problems and issues can be brought to the table for discussions. Likewise, this should be the practice of all organisations. Nothing is beyond resolve.
To newly elected committee members, I congratulate you and wish you all the best. It is my sincere hope that the Sabah United Chinese Chambers of Commerce will remain united and grow stronger in years to come, and will help generate greater economic prosperity for Sabah.
