The Sejiwa Senada programme is a one-stop platform for the various government agencies to meet and serve the people while offering various fun activities such as sports and recreational sports.
Open to the public, the programme is also aimed at enhancing the ‘feel good’ factor among the people so that they will be confident and aware of what the government is doing in bringing development and uplifting the socio-economic and living standard of the people.
Through the Sejiwa Senada programme, the government hopes to build better rapport with the public and to sustain good cooperation with them for the sake of progress and harmony in the state.
The next Sejiwa Senada programme would be held in Lubok Antu on May 7 and 8. — DayakDaily
