PROJECTS IMPLEMENTED IN HDA AREAS NOT MERE TALKS
KUCHING: The projects implemented in Highland Development Agency (HDA) areas prove that Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) announcements are not just rhetorical.
Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas said, the GPS government wanted to ensure that any announcements made by them would be followed up by implementation.
Speaking at a press conference after witnessing the contract signing ceremony between Recoda and five contractors at the Penview Convention Centre earlier today, he added that there were a total of 41 projects under the HDA with a total cost of RM1.5 billion, comprising of road, clean water supply and electricity supply projects.
He also urged the five contractors that were appointed for the road projects to open up opportunities for locals in those areas to participate within the project areas as these projects had the clear objective of closing the gap of development within the HDA areas and other areas in the state.
