‘Do not gamble away country’s future’
Posted on December 15, 2012, Saturday
KUDAT: Transport Deputy Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri has cautioned the people of Sabah not to gamble away the country’s future.
He said an unstable and weak government would undermine the country’s economy, adversely affecting investor confidence.
Malaysia’s hope of becoming a high-income developed nation would be jeopardised, he added.
“In this aspect, wasting too much time on political squabbles will affect development planning and implementation, causing the people and country to lose out.
“This had happened to many Third World countries which finally became bankrupt, forcing them to be international beggars,” said Abdul Rahim, who is also Kudat MP.
He was speaking at the launch of the Cooperatives Mini Carnival and Seminar for Kudat parliamentary constituency organised by the Malaysian Cooperatives Commission at Kudat library hall here yesterday.
Meanwhile, he said cooperative activities could nurture good business ethics and practices. — Bernama
