Sabah Civil Servants’ TN50 Aspirations: Sustainable Development, Environmental Conservation
Sabah civil servants want to see sustainable development and better environmental conservation in the country by 2050.
These two aspirations were delivered by participants in the National Transformation 2050 (TN50) dialogue at Universiti Malaysia Sabah, here.
Chief Secretary to the Government, Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa, who led the dialogue session, was impressed with the concerns voiced out by civil servants in the state.
“Globally, everyone is concerned about sustainability and the environment.
“Malaysia has always put environment first and sustainability has always been our motto.
“Our development plan is a sustainable one. Every part of our system, including the civil service should move toward that direction.
“On environment, Sabah is, for sure, doing very well in terms of forest conservation. The civil servants here are proud of that and that is why they want to protect it (environment),” he told reporters at a press conference.
Ali also noted that security was also one of the main aspiration expressed by many.
Many wished to see Sabah having increased level of security in years to come.
“We are aware of the security concern in the eastern part of Sabah. Safety will remain an utmost important factor so we can develop every part of the state,” he said.
About 1,200 civil servants of both federal and state departments attended the dialogue.
Sabah State Secretary Tan Sri Sukarti Wakiman was the dialogue moderator for the event.
