KOTA KINABALU: The state assembly sitting next week should be used to debate on improving post-Covid-19 efforts in Sabah, says state Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia information chief Khairul Firdaus Akhbar Khan.
In a statement here on Sunday (Sept 19), he said economic issues must be deliberated on as many have been impacted during the pandemic.
"The current situation seemed to be 'no light at the end of the tunnel'.
"A special economic stimulus package for Sabah must be carried out to ensure economic recovery," he added.
Job opportunities and reskilling of the youths must be looked into by respective government agencies, said Khairul.
He noted the state administration faced a different set of challenges due to the pandemic, where science and technology play bigger roles.
"In view of this, the state government could consider forming a digital committee with technical experts as members, to advise on how to move forward in a digital world," he said.
