KUCHING, Nov 8: The seven sugar import AP holders until this day is still unknown to Sarawakian despite several press statements have been issued to ask for it for the past few months.
In stating this today, political sectary to the Chief Minister Tan Kai has again requested Deputy Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Chong Chieng Jen to reveal the names of the remaining seven (7) sugar import AP holders in Sarawak.
“My last statement was issued on Oct 10, 2019, I thought the Deputy Minister will reveal it as earlier statement issued by his assistant was that it can only be revealed during parliamentary sitting, but until today, nothing has been revealed.
“So now is the DUN sitting session, I (am) asking again, and hopefully I can hear positive response from him,” Tan told DayakDaily on the sideline of the State Legislative Assembly (DUN) Sitting here.
He revealed that so far, only one cake-making company voluntarily came forward to say they have the permit.
“This is important to show that the government observe and uphold transparency. The public also can help the government to monitor the products manufactured by these AP holders for the benefit of all,” he added.— DayakDaily
