KUALA TERENGGANU: The state government should provide more incentives to attract investments to Terengganu, especially in the small and medium-scale industries and resource-based ones. 

The Sultan of Terengganu Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin said the state should organise programmes to attract foreign and domestic investments especially those in the manufacturing sector. 

“I am happy that the state received over RM4.7bil direct investments last year and hope it will benefit entrepreneurs and the local workforce,” he said yesterday at the opening of the state assembly. 

He said the state government should continue to focus its efforts to help poor families.

On housing, Sultan Mizan said the state government and the private sector should re-double efforts to meet the target of building 32,000 units under the Eight Malaysia Plan, including 9,700 low-cost units.  

State Local Government, Housing, Environment and Public Administration Committee chairman Datuk Wan Abdul Muttalib Embong said a proposal to appoint up to four assemblymen among women and non-Muslims would be to be tabled during the sitting. 

He said the appointed assemblymen, would not have voting rights. 

“They can also be appointed as state executive councillors but we are not going into this as yet,” he told reporters after the opening.
