Sarawak’s progress thanks to political stability, says DPM

SIBU: Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi says political stability has brought much development and progress to Sarawak.

He said these included the introduction of hydrogen technology by Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg.

He said Sarawak is the only state in the country with seven technical and vocational education and training institutions (TVET) that teach subjects such as the Internet of Things, robotics, and new technology.

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

Ahmad Zahid, who is also the Rural and Regional Development Minister, said it is very important to have political stability to move forward in the field of technology.

He added that TVET used to be a second or third option for parents whose children struggled academically, but Sarawak has made it the first choice for the young, Bernama reported.

“This can serve as an example, and I believe this progress is due to Tan Sri Abang Johari’s good leadership,” he said.

The DPM also said his ministry will prioritise the development of infrastructure in rural Sarawak, and he will request assistance from the Federal Government to rebuild longhouses that have suffered damage from fires or floods.
