KOTA KINABALU: An annual general meeting (AGM) held by Putatan Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCCI) on Saturday, was attended by 40 out of the total 68 members.
Its president Datuk Frankie Liew said he was pleased that the chamber’s committee remained united although PCCCI had been inactive for six months due to issues in its registration.
He was also pleased to see that the committee members took part in various programmes and activities when the Chinese chamber of commerce was active.
Nonetheless, Liew said PCCCI members should abide by the chamber’s constitution so that similar issues will not arise in the future.
He also said the property market in Putatan was booming, as more residential and commercial properties were being built in the district.
The district’s geographical proximity to the Pan Borneo Highway and Kota Kinabalu city would also give Putatan an advantage, he said, adding that construction to widen the road to three carriageways in Putatan was underway, thanks to Deputy Chief Minister cum Putatan state assemblyman Datuk Seri Panglima Yahya Hussin.
He said the traffic congestion in the district would improve when the project was completed.
On the other hand, Liew said the business community in Putatan was facing increasingly complex issues which required PCCCI to play its role more effectively in reflecting the view and wishes of the Chinese community in district.
He said the chamber would also forge closer relationship with government departments in order to achieve their goals.
Meanwhile, members of the chamber unanimously passed a motion in the AGM to authorize PCCCI committee to take action against its two internal auditors for not carrying out their duties, thereby causing the chamber to be de-registered, as well as the individuals who set up another Chinese chamber of commerce in the district.-Sayangsabah
