BAU, July 24: Providing business opportunities and maintaining racial harmony will be part of the agenda for developing a greater Bau, says Deputy Minister of Transport Dato Henry Harry Jinep.
He said such an agenda is important to increase movement of the people thus making the town more lively.
“In Bau, we have about 63,000 people and we will strive and continue to provide business opportunities for the locals, while at the same time maintain peace and harmony among the people for a greater Bau.
“Such approach are important to have to have movement of the people for socio-economic activities,” he pointed out last night when officiating at the opening of Pub Street@Lobuh Bau, here.
He highlighted he has requested Bau District Council to continue adopting this approach, adding that the locals have a passion to do business.
Henry, who is the Tasik Biru assemblyman stressed that Bau was now more lively compared to the past whereby the town was very quiet after 2am.
“When I first became the assemblyman, many people informed me that Bau is a ghost town, but after five and six years, we can see the difference… Bau is now more lively.
“For this, we will continue to work towards making the town to have more socio-economic activities, particularly with the near completion of the Pan Borneo Highway,” he stressed.
Henry also believed that Pub Street@Lobuh Bau will become a well known place in the future.
Among those present was Bau District officer Anielia Siam. — DayakDaily
