Dateline 2022-06-11, Malay Mail:

The state’s revenue collection this year from the sales tax on petroleum products exports would exceed the figure from the 20 per cent royalty proposed by Pakatan Harapan (PH) in its manifesto for the 14th general election.

Deputy Minister in Premier of Sarawak’s Department (Labour, Immigration and Project Monitoring) Datuk Gerawat Gala said this would translate into rural Sarawak benefitting from greater infrastructure and economic development.
