KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah United Chinese Chambers of Commerce (SUCCC) has unanimously passed 11 resolutions at their 40th annual delegates conference yesterday.
Among others, they called on the government to abolish the cabotage policy and beef up the security situation in Sabah particularly in the east coast. The cabotage policy had created an unfair business environment and affected industries growth in Sabah,” said SUCCC president Datuk Seri Panglima Gan Sau Wah.
He said this at the opening of their annual delegates conference at a hotel in Putatan yesterday, launched by Special Tasks Minister Datuk Teo Chee Kang.
He said the cabotage policy has contributed to the high costs of goods and doing business in Sabah, thus making the state uncompetitive and an attractive to investors when compared to our neighbouring countries.
The SUCCC urged the government dispatch more assets and personnel to tighten the security situation in the east coast to prevent kidnapping cases and boost the confidence of investors and the tourism industry, he said.-Sayangsabah
