Sarawak’s political stability allows us to focus on development, says Abang Jo
Sarawak premier Abang Johari Openg said the state is investing in hydrogen production as part of its focus on environmental conservation.
PETALING JAYA: The stable political environment and peaceful coexistence of Sarawak’s diverse communities allow its leaders to focus on development programmes, Sarawak premier Abang Johari Openg said.

“We can carry out our duties and focus. If the political situation is unstable, leaders will always be looking over their shoulders,” he said in Sarikei today.

Abang Johari said stability is achieved by looking after the needs of all religions, emphasising a balance in development by focusing on environmental conservation, Bernama reported.

“This is the reason Sarawak focuses on hydrogen production as a renewable energy source,” he said, adding that the state government has also begun exploring green electricity production using floating solar panels at the Batang Ai Dam.

Meanwhile, he said the Batang Rajang, Batang Lassa and Batang Baloh bridges will be completed soon, increasing economic activity in the area, especially large-scale rice cultivation using new technologies.
