KUCHING: Sarawak will not delay the implementation of state-funded mega projects, says Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg.
He said Sarawak had enough revenue to proceed with implementing the projects.
"I do not know about Federal-funded projects but the state-funded projects will go on," he told reporters after launching Sarawak's International Day of Forests celebration here on Tuesday (June 28).
Abang Johari was asked on reports that the Federal Government may consider putting mega projects on hold in light of the projected subsidy cost of RM77.3bil this year.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Economy) Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed said on Monday (June 27) that the government had not made a final decision on postponing the implementation of mega projects to save costs.
However, he said the government needed to look into cost-saving measures to ensure that its financial position remained strong.
