KUCHING, Aug 20: Sarawak Dayak Graduates Association (SDGA) will help Dayak graduates prepare for Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR4.0) to support the Sarawak government’s efforts to transform the state through the digital economy.

SDGA president Gary Ningkan today led an entourage to pay a courtesy call on Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg at the latter’s office at Wisma Bapa Malaysia to discuss the association’s upcoming activities and future programmes.

“The Chief Minister and SDGA are currently in the same boat in the sense that both parties see that there is a need to equip young Dayak graduates with digital knowledge to face the challenges of the future” he told reporters after the meeting.

“The Chief Minister is very thankful to our group for helping the state government to enhance efforts that will drive this state forward,” he said.

Gary emphasised that SDGA wants to be one of the vehicles to advocate the importance of digital knowledge and IR4.0 among rural Dayaks.

He added that Abang Johari expressed willingness to assist the association financially as well as in setting up a centre for SDGA to conduct activities and workshops.

“We believe that a financially stable and sustainable SDGA is good for the whole of Sarawak,” he said. — DayakDaily
