KOTA KINABALU – A total of RM2.543 billion based on the Project Monitoring System (SPP II) from the 2014 allocation has been spent to fund development projects in Sabah up to Dec 31 last year.
“We achieved 76.10 per cent in our performance which is 14 per cent higher than the National performance average of 62.04 per cent,” Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman stated after chairing the first State Action Council Meeting for 2015.
Musa urged civil service personnel especially implementating agencies to double their efforts and commitment to see whether they are up to the set targets.
“This outcome assessment is crucial to ensure that the government’s development programmes and projects benefit the people,” he said.
He stated that the 2015 National Budget emphasises strategic initiatives that include both the capital and the people’s economy. The budget gives priority to the well-being of the people.
On the same development, Musa hoped that the implementation of Goods and Service Tax (GST) would received positive respond from the people.
He said that with the new rate of six per cent imposition effective April 1, it would spur the country’s economic growth to attain developed nation status. – SayangSabah
