The State Government’s holistic approach in developing the oil and gas industry – placing emphasis on greater opportunities for Sarawakians companies and employment – is the way forward in furthering participation of Sarawakians and local companies in this sector.
Minister of Industrial Development and Entrepreneurship, Trade and Investment, Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan said this after a briefing by home-grown public-listed Dayang Enterprise Holding Bhd at its regional headquarters in Miri yesterday.
