Rafizi: Sarawakian quota in Petronas does more harm than good

Dateline 2016-08-05, FMT:

PKR lawmaker Rafizi Ramli believes introducing quotas for Sarawakians in Petronas’ operations in Sarawak will do them more harm than good.

Referring to Sarawak DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen’s suggestion yesterday that Petronas have a 70 per cent quota of home-grown management and middle management staff in the state’s operations, Rafizi said he understood the sentiments of Sarawakians, but imposing such quotas could be detrimental to the staff.

“All Petronas executives are taken from the company’s headquarters and reassigned to the various units and subsidiaries around the world, as the oil company’s operations covered upstream, gas, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), oil refineries, petrochemicals, and downstream activities, such as marketing and international trade.
