KUCHING: Sarawak Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg has suggested that the state government be notified earlier of all visits by federal ministers to the state.
He explained that this was to ensure smooth coordination throughout their visit to Sarawak.
“Sometimes, we need the point of view from the state’s officers, especially on which projects we want to implement in the state,” he was quoted as saying by Bernama after chairing the Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) supreme council meeting here yesterday.
Meanwhile, PBB, he added, would be holding a convention in conjunction with Sarawak’s 60th Merdeka Anniversary celebration.
He said the convention would be held in three zones involving south, central and north Sarawak areas, adding that the dates would be announced later.
“Through this convention, we will update our members on what we have achieved and also the party’s future direction,” he said.
