MARUDI: The federal government has a master plan for the continued development of Sarawak due to the vast potential for development in the state, said Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

The Prime Minister said the master plan could be realised because he had a good relationship with Sarawak Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg and the federal and Sarawak governments enjoyed excellent ties.

“We want Sarawak to move forward relentlessly because it has great potential for development,” he said when addressing a meet-the-people session and launching the construction of the Marudi Bridge, at the Marudi Square here today.

Also present at the event were Abang Johari, deputy chief ministers Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas and Tan Sri James Jemut Masing, Baram MP Anyi Ngau and Marudi state assemblyman Datuk Dr Penguang Manggil.

Najib said that it was his desire to see Sarawak develop further that had made him visit the Land of the Hornbills about 60 times in association with 161 programmes during the past nine years as the prime minister.
