KUCHING, April 2: Sarawak Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg was among State government leaders and ministers who attended the inaugural Malaysia Energy Council meeting this morning at the Prime Minister’s Office in Putrajaya.

The council was recently formed as a result of the previous federal administration’s formulation of the National Energy Policy (DTN 2022-2040), according to a statement issued today via the Premier of Sarawak’s official Facebook page, ‘Sarawakku’.


“The two-and-a-half-hour inaugural meeting was chaired by Prime Minister Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who also serves as the council’s chairman.

“DTN seeks to strategically chart the way forward and outlines key priorities for the energy sector in the coming years in order to achieve the country’s low-carbon aspiration.

“DTN will position the energy sector as a catalyst for socioeconomic development banking on the tremendous opportunities arising from the energy transition as the world continues to orchestrate efforts towards net-zero carbon emissions by 2050,” read the statement.

The council meeting was attended by various dignitaries and officials, including Deputy Prime Minister Dato Sri Fadillah Yusof, who is also Minister of Energy Transition and Water Transformation.

The Premier was accompanied by Sarawak State Secretary Datuk Amar Mohamad Abu Bakar Marzuki and Ministry of Energy and Environmental Sustainability Sarawak permanent secretary, Abang Ahmad Abang Morni. — DayakDaily
