KUCHING, June 22: This milestone year, Petroleum National Berhad (PETRONAS) is marking its half-century anniversary by turning dreams into reality for 50 individuals in need, spanning seven festive occasions throughout the year.

As PETRONAS gears up to celebrate its 50th anniversary this August, PETRONAS Group Strategic Relations and Communications senior general manager Siti Azlina Latif has reaffirmed the company’s commitment to continuing its legacy of contributing to the nation’s growth and prosperity.


“With the support we received from those around us, we have begun a search to discover the rich tapestry of diverse human experiences and circumstances, listening to both big and small unspoken dreams and working with local communities to make their dreams come true during the time of festivities,” she said in her brief address during the Ngiling Bidai celebration with Sarawak media to mark the end of the Gawai Dayak celebration at Kantin at the Granary last night.

This unique initiative underscores PETRONAS’s dedication to giving back to the community and fostering a spirit of unity and hope as it celebrates five decades of excellence and service.

Siti Azlina also highlighted that last night’s event was part of the company’s continuous relationship building initiative to strengthen its rapport with the media fraternity in Sarawak.

“I believe that through engagements such as this, we will be able to cultivate and nurture a long-term relationship that will be beneficial to both parties.

“We are committed to continue to engage with Sarawak media through various programmes with the view of enhancing the media understanding of the increasingly complex oil and gas industry and our transition to renewable energy,” she said.

Siti Azlina emphasised that PETRONAS itself was a dream come true, a vision realised through the belief and support of its community.

“By paying attention to the dreams of others, we are reminded that all things are possible, together,” she added. — DayakDaily
