New Rural Development Plan for Sabah

Be the first to review

Minister Datuk Ewon Benedick has stated that a new strategy is being drafted to revamp the development of Sabah’s rural areas by the the State Rural Development Ministry. He believes a revamp is due as the current plan was drafted over 20 years ago.

At his Ministry’s Bengkel Hala Tuju (Roadmap workshop) closing ceremony yesterday, Ewon said a new strategy plan would meet the needs of Sabah’s people and would further spark new ideas and strategies for Sabah.

“For the past two days, the State Rural Development Ministry had conducted a workshop whereby all district officers and assistant district officers, municipal council deputy presidents and a few other agencies such as the State Economic Planning Unit, Federal Rural Development Ministry as well as other technical agencies such as the Public Works Department, State Water Department and the Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd had attended,” said Ewon.

“We will present our inputs and reviews to the Federal Rural Development Ministry,” he explained.
