SIBU: Junior Chamber International (JCI) members could strengthen themselves in some ways so that they could serve the society with more energy and gusto.

Second Finance Minister Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh said aspects that they could look into to achieve this could be physical, academic, social, and spiritual.

“Eating a balanced diet, doing regular exercise, and learning to manage stress are the three key components you can take in order to be physically and mentally strong.

“And if you also want to be academically strong, equip yourselves with knowledge.

“To be socially strong, build good relation not only among JCI members, but with public members as well,” he said when officiating at the 58th installation of JCI Sibu held here on Sunday.

Wong, who is also Minister of Local Government and Community Development, commended JCI Sibu for being a force to be reckoned with among the local community.

To elevate JCI Sibu to even greater height, members must practise good teamwork because one could not do much individually, he said, adding that if they could drive themselves to be conscientiously committed to JCI movement, that would serve as a strong spiritual basis to help them forge ahead in what they set out to achieve.

At the function, Wong witnessed the installation of the new JCI Sibu office-bearers led by also the new president Irene Pet. Meanwhile, there was also an installation of the first alumni committee for JCI Sibu.
