KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah government will make sure that the state gets priority in all the initiatives and economic stimulus packages introduced by the Federal Government, says Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor (pic).
The Chief Minister said the stimulus package to cushion the Covid-19 pandemic's negative impact on the economy would certainly help alleviate the hardship faced by all Malaysians.
"Sabah is one of the worst affected by the pandemic, therefore the state government will work closely with Putrajaya to ensure we will be prioritised in all its initiatives," he said.
Hajiji was responding to the latest RM15bil Perlindungan Ekonomi dan Rakyat Malaysia (Permai) assistance initiative announced by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on Monday (Jan 18).
He admitted that the road towards recovery would not be easy due to the pandemic's global impact on the economy.
"But, make no mistake, the Gabungan Rakyat Sabah government is taking every possible measure to ensure recovery of Sabah's economy," he said.
