LIMBANG, Feb 16: Federal and state civil servants have been urged to foster greater cooperation for better service delivery to the people.

“The planning that we have is holistic and inclusive. Therefore, we need the cooperation from various government agencies including the civil servants from both the federal and state level to realise this agenda,” Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan emphasised during an appreciation dinner hosted by the Limbang Immigration Department and the Limbang Resident’s Office at a hotel here here yesterday.

“For instance, through the Northern Region Development Agency (NRDA), a sum of RM1.5 billion has been allocated to infrastructure projects, basic amenities, entrepreneurship programmes, tourism and human capital development.

“The successful implementation of these projects with the help of all parties will be an impetus for the development of the northern region of Sarawak,” Awang Tengah added.

He believed the implementation of those projects using Sarawak’s own resources will enable the state to realise its full potential to become a developed state by 2030.

Among those attending the dinner were Assistant Minister of Agriculture, Native Land and Regional Development Datuk Dr Abdul Rahman Ismail, Batu Danau assemblyman Paulus Palu Ngumbang and Lawas MP Datuk Henry Sum Agong. — DayakDaily
