Sarawak's political stability brings development, progress, says Zahid

SIBU: Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said political stability has brought much development and progress to Sarawak.

The Deputy Prime Minister said that among them was the introduction of hydrogen technology by Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg.

According to him, no other state in Malaysia has seven technical and vocational education and training institutions (TVET) like Sarawak that teach technology fields such as the Internet of Things, robotics, and new technology.

"I say this not to compare Sarawak with other states, but the political stability is achieved under the leadership of Tan Sri Abang Johari (who is) not only famous in Malaysia but also abroad," he said at the Parti Rakyat Sarawak’s pre-Gawai 2024 celebration here on Saturday (May 18) night.

Ahmad Zahid, who is also Rural and Regional Development Minister, said political stability is vital for technological progress.

Ahmad Zahid said Sarawak has become the first choice for young people in the TVET field, which used to be the second or third choice for parents whose children failed academically.

"This can be set as an example and I believe this progress is due to the good leadership of Tan Sri Abang Johari," he said.

He said the Rural and Regional Development Ministry would give priority to infrastructure development in rural Sarawak.

Ahmad Zahid added that he would ask the Federal Government and the state government to help develop longhouses that are dilapidated or destroyed by fire or floods.- Bernama
