MIRI: Entrepreneurs in Sarawak, particularly the Bumiputeras, should be more committed, determined and brave to venture into the world of business industries.

However, they must not depend on expo or trade sales and exhibitions only and disappear when there were no such events.

Instead, they should strive and continue to improve their products so to gain confidence and trust of their clients for long term business, advised the Sibuti MP Ahmad Lai Bujang.

“This is taking into view their capability to produce quality products such as ‘kek lapis Sarawak’, traditional medication, fish pellets and many more,” he told reporters here yesterday.

Ahmad Lai said the government had taken initiatives and assistance in numerous forms to assist Bumiputera entrepreneurs to develop and expand their businesses, as well as promote their products within and out the country. Earlier, Ahmad Lai officiated at the opening ceremony of the `Expo Sales and Exhibition’ at the Miri Indoor Stadium car park here, representing the Bumiputera Entrepreneurs Development Assistant Minister and Planning and Resource Assistant Minister Datuk Naroden Majais.

The two-day event was organised by the Miri Divisional Entrepreneur Development Council (MPUB) in collaboration with Miri MARA, Miri FAMA, Miri DUBS, Miri Agriculture Department and Miri City Council in conjunction with the 2012 state level Maulidur Rasul.

There are 81 booths offering refreshment, food and local delicacies and is open to the public from 8am – 8pm.

Meanwhile, Ahmad Lai fully supported the suggestion by the Parliament Deputy Speaker and Santubong MP Datuk Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar to consider extending the date to apply for the ‘1Malaysia People Assistance’ (BR1M), especially for Sarawak.

“This will not deprive those who are eligible, in particular those in the remote areas in the state,” he asserted.

According to him, there were still many people who deserved the assistance but had yet to apply for it, because they were unaware of it. Ahmad Lai was asked for his comments on the recent statement by Wan Junaidi requesting the government to extend the dead line to submit the applications for the BR1M.

He calmed those who had yet to apply or submit their application forms after Feb 10, or their names were not listed in the processing stages one, two or three, and assured they could still appeal.

“Do not panic and no need to rush, even though the government had set Feb 10 as the deadline,” he said.

To another question, Ahmad Lai disclosed that to date, more than half of his constituents had received the BR1M, involving a sum of more than a RM1 million.

Ahmad Lai was accompanied by Lambir assemblyman Ripin Lamat, Miri resident Antonio Kahti Galis and his deputy Abdul Aziz Mohamad Yusuf.
