Meanwhile, Leong said throughout this year, RH Education and NTU would partner to organise a series of talks throughout Sarawak.

She said it was Rimbunan Hijau Education Group’s vision that, business communities in Sarawak would recognise and practise sustainable businesses to uphold the legacies of their corporations and family businesses.

“Sarawak is fortunately endowed with rich natural resources, it is us who consume these resources and the responsibility is upon us to ensure that these resources are managed sustainably. We need knowledgeable and skilled people to help our community better manage these resources to ensure our community continues to thrive in many generations to come,” she added.
