Sarawak’s oil, Sarawak’s soil, so let us decide, says Nancy

Cool slogan. Can I steal it?

Date 2018-08-29, FMT:

Sarawakians should be the ones dictating how much oil royalty it will get as the oil is in their soil, said Sarawak MP Nancy Shukri.

Nancy, who is Batang Sadong MP, said a lot of Sarawakians were of the view that the state had been enriching West Malaysians and as a result the state had become backward and has not been getting much.

“Sarawakians have been talking. They say, ‘we see the Petronas Twin Towers, but look at us. Where are we?’

“That is why Sarawakians are now very aggressive and protective about their reserves. We explain why the Malaysia Agreement 1963 is still important because Sabah and Sarawak are still very backward in terms of development.

Malaysia’s nuclear power plants dream far from definite

Shucks, I had a gamma ray chamber all set up, and Dr. Horrible was going to preside the opening.

Malaysia is unlikely to put into motion any concrete plans to build the country’s first two nuclear power plants before 2030.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri said the government is not expected to commit to the 2030 target due to the complexity of the issue and the need for a detailed study before such implementations.

“We also do not want to panic the public. At the same time, the government wants to learn more (about the technology) before embarking on it,” she told The Malaysian Reserve in a recent interview.

Malaysia had initially planned to commission the country’s first and second nuclear plants in 2021 and 2022 respectively, as outlined under the Economic Transformation Programme.

Seek new opportunities, Nancy reminds Malaysians

October 13, 2017

Yes, Datuk, we are trying.

Dateline 2017-08-31, Borneo Post:

Malaysians have the responsibility to keep looking for new opportunities  for progress that would make their ancestors proud and provide their grandchildren with a flourishing country they call home.

In stating this, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri said in this period of growth and development, the nation must not forget to look back to what led the country to where it is today.

“Over 60 years ago, the nation fought for its independence, an endeavour that would not have been accomplished but for the cooperative support of the entire country.

“Today, the need of a union between Malaysians that transcends race, religion and even gender has not dwindled but perhaps become even more crucial. If we are to effectively pursue the development of our country, we must not forget the values that brought us here today,” she said in her National Day message yesterday.


No decision yet on building nuke power plants in M’sia

Build, already.

Dateline 2016-11-04, Daily Express:

The government has yet to make any decision on the construction of nuclear power plants in Malaysia, said Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri.

Although the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) targeted the nuclear power plant to be operational by 2021, she said the date would be postponed as the government needed to take into account latest developments and prevailing sentiments at home and abroad, especially regarding the impact of March 2011 tsunami on the Japanese nuclear power programme.

“Initial information obtained from the feasibility study shows that the timeline required for the implementation and completion of the nuclear power plant is at least 11 years from the date the government made the decision,” she said when replying to Datuk Noor Ehsanuddin Mohd Harun Narrashid (BN-Kota Tinggi) at the Dewan Rakyat sitting Thursday.

A blue ocean for tech safety practitioners in Malaysia?

Dateline 2016-09-28, NST:

Malaysia as a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has enjoyed a longstanding and mutually beneficial partnership with the agency in the application of peaceful uses of nuclear technology for socio-economic development.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Nancy Shukri said IAEA played a vital role in promotion of peaceful applications of nuclear science and technology in helping member states closer to achieving developmental goals and priorities.

“As a member of IAEA since 1969, Malaysia is intensifying its role and contribution to global peace, security and development from being a recipient country to sharing its expertise and experiences with other countries,” she said while attending the 60th Regular Session of the IAEA General Conference in Vienna, Austria.
