Need alternative ‘routes’ to get funds
Deputy Chief Minister I Datuk Seri Dr Jeffrey Kitingan
ALTERNATIVE “routes” in obtaining funds for development will benefit the State economy, said Deputy Chief Minister I Datuk Seri Dr Jeffrey Kitingan.

“I have suggested and the State Government has approved for us to explore new sources (of income) such as carbon trading. This will (surely) require conservation which is a global direction towards addressing climate change.

“But some non-governmental organisations (NGO) have confused the leaders and the people,” he said, when visiting the Sabah Fish Marketing Sdn Bhd (Safma) complex, here.

Jeffrey, who is also State Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Industry (Maffi) Minister, was commenting on the shortage of funds to upgrade which could be obtained through alternative methods.

“Sabah leaders should be open minded. There should not be a double standard. We want to help the government, development and the people as well as solve our problems.

“We should (opt for different approach) to find financial sources. We should expedite carbon trading as soon as possible or else we will be left behind other states in development,” he said.
