Tuaran: The State Government aims to reduce hardcore poverty in the State by 70 to 80 per cent by next year, said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor.

He said this will hopefully be achieved through various initiatives outlined by the government.

“We have asked these participating entities to ensure the hardcore poor also enjoy the job opportunities."
