The question for Teresa Kok now is whether the overwhelming response from Chinese investors to do business in Malaysia that she received during her visit to China shortly after she was made minister – when she met government-linked companies and government agencies – has been translated into actual investments.
She was very confident then, saying palm oil prices will recover significantly in the second half of 2018 because of the response she received. Does it happen?
KUCHING, Wednesday 21 Nov – A group of 27 political secretaries to the Chief Minister today attended a special briefing on the amendments to the Land Code.
State Attorney General Datuk Talat Mahmood Abdul Rashid conducted the briefing.
It was held at the conference room of the office of Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah who was also present .
The Dewan Undangan Negeri had passed amendments to the Land Codeon 12 July, 2018 to address issues relating to Territorial Domain i.e. the Pemakai Menoa and Pulau Galau.
Uggah in his brief address earlier on, said the amendments benefited all natives and were major landreforms.
“The natives must thank the late Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem and his successor Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg for their concerns, fullest support and commitments in coming up with them,” he said.
He also thanked Abang Johari for recently allocating a sum of RM40million next yearto continue with survey works on NCR land.
Uggah meanwhile particularly advised the secretaries to go to the ground to explain matters pertaining to the amendments which had either been twisted by certain people including politicians or were generally misunderstood by others.
He said the common perception that the government would use Section 6 of the amendments to usurp NCR landwas maliciously incorrect.
It could instead use the Section 47 but of course the owners would be fairly compensated, he said.
