WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF MINISTER OF SARAWAK, MALAYSIA
THE RIGHT HONOURABLE DATUK PATINGGI (DR) ABANG HAJI ABDUL RAHMAN ZOHARI BIN TUN ABANG HAJI OPENG
Greetings Esteemed Delegates,
With much pleasure and pride, I welcome distinguished delegates from various corners of the globe to this Inaugural Sarawak Dialogue 2018, being staged in this historic city of Kuching.
Sarawak has always had a special attraction to many adventurers interested in its colonial historical roots, wanting to experience the urban and rural communities that harmoniously thrive on multi-ethnicity and cross-cultural diversity. Whilst these continue to draw people to our shores, many changes are currently being implemented, to pave the way for great economic prospects for its people and the overall nation, too.
We are on a threshold of embracing great economic changes and innovations that would ensure positive growth and progressive development for Sarawak’s future.
The Sarawak Dialogue 2018 will take place at a most opportune time when the state is geared towards attracting choice partnerships and investors in various industries, ranging from digital economy, tourism, education and even health. In unison, all these stand to drive and accelerate Sarawak’s progress, not only within the urban areas but also within rural communities and districts too.
When planned and implemented with commitment, foresight, due diligence, many partnerships and projects that will be discussed and possibly sealed at this dialogue stand to herald great times ahead for Sarawak and its people. Such is the soul of this state, whose people have lived with contentment and unity, all these years. However, with the challenges of today, we need to propel our people to keep up with the changing times, equipping themselves with a strong, knowledge base that can help them to be equally competitive in whatever business they undertake.
Opportunities abound in every sector within Sarawak. Hence, with much enthusiasm and zeal, I encourage everyone to explore the myriad of choices. Indeed, it takes patience, the right chemistry and earnest hard work for partnerships to deliver what they aim to fulfil. On this note, I am happy to be part of this inaugural event that would surely pave a choice journey for the people of Sarawak. For some, there could be opportunities outside our boundaries and become emerging brands, too.
Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful state.
