KUCHING, May 24: Bigotry has no place in Sarawak, says Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) senior vice-president Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan.

Emphasising this, he said the Sarawak Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government does not engage in meaningless politicking.

He said GPS is instead committed in serving the people with dedication and propelling Sarawak to greater heights.

“We want our people to prosper. No one shall be left behind in this journey.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to urge everybody, including the private sector to continue working with the government to achieve greater success.

”The private sector is the engine of growth, and the government will continue to provide a conducive ecosystem for businesses to grow and prosper together,” he added.

Awang Tengah, who is also Minister for International Trade, Industry and Investment, was delivering his ministerial winding-up speech at the Sarawak Legislative Assembly (DUN) sitting today.

He also said that this year marks the diamond anniversary of Sarawak’s 60th independence and the formation of Malaysia.

“Throughout these 60 years, our leaders from the late Right Honourable Tan Sri Datuk Amar Stephen Kalong Ningkan to the present leadership of Right Honourable Premier, have guided Sarawak to achieve many important milestones in State and Nation building.

“It is indeed a very remarkable journey for Sarawak. All of these would not have been possible without peace, harmony, racial inclusivity, and unity as well as political stability that we all work hard to preserve.

“These have allowed Sarawak to grow and further develop our economic sectors,” he said. — DayakDaily
