THE Perak MCA building is ready after months of refurbishment works and the team is looking forward to serve the people with renewed vigour.
At the opening of the newly refurbished building on Sunday, MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the state party leaders and members would utilise its resources to serve and help the people.
“We are not just providing good service to the rakyat but we will also be speaking up for them.
“We will all do this under the current leadership, including state chairman Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon,” he said during the opening ceremony.
“All party members must work hard and put the newly renovated building to good use to serve the people,” he said.
Liow also said that the state party has support from Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir and the state government and together, they could help bring in more development to the state.
“Dr Zambry is far-sighted and progressive to develop Perak, attracting lots of investors to enhance the economy.
“I am confident that the economy here will continue to prosper,” he said.
“As for the Ministry of Transport, we will also do our part to assist the state in terms of infrastructure and development,” said Liow, who is also Transport Minister.
He noted that the electrified double-tracking project has been completed and trial runs were being conducted.
“We expect the Electric Train Service (ETS) will be operational in June,” he said.
Perak MCA also introduced a new centre under its wing as Liow later headed to Bidor to open the Tanjung Malim MCA Division Community Centre.
With the opening of the new centre here, he expressed hope for party members and the people to utilise the centre to its fullest.
“It is vital that we work hard to represent the local community in matters concerning the state, especially those who are in need of a voice.
“Be it in council meetings, state assemblies or even the Parliament, let us render our best to the people and speak for them,” he said.
Also present at the opening was Perak MCA chief Dr Mah.
Earlier, Liow had also attended a Chinese New Year open house organised by the state MCA Wanita wing at the Ipoh Red Crescent Hall.
In his speech, he said the diversity of race and religion in the country was its strength.
“We must not take this for granted and must protect this strong bond between all races.
“It is only through our unity that we can achieve success for the country,” he said.
