Najib being welcomed by well-wishers upon his arrival at Rumah Jerek in Lambir, near Miri.
MIRI: Sarawak is a model state in terms of social harmony, said Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
“In Sarawak, in particular, we can see this multiracial, multi-religious and multi-ethnic inclusiveness that has brought about social harmony and political stability,” the Prime Minister said at a Gawai open house at Rumah Jerek in Lambir sub-district some 25km south of Miri, Monday.
Najib also acknowledged the role played by the people of Sarawak in contributing to the state and country’s stability.
He added that the Federal Government was grateful to all Sarawakians for their role in shaping the nation’s progress.
“I have just come back from a five-day visit to China. I should be taking at least one or two days off to rest. However, I flew straight from China to Miri just so that I could be with you for Gawai,” he said, promising to give Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem’s state government full support.
Najib is on a two-day visit to the state. On Monday morning, he visited the Orang Ulus in Long Silat, Ulu Baram before gracing the national level Gawai Dayak Open House grand celebrations at the Miri City Fan Recreational Park in the evening.
