‘More Sabahans hold important posts’


KOTA KINABALU: More Sabahans are entrusted with important positions nationally including in the Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry Malaysia (ACCCIM).

In its 72nd annual general meeting held on July 20, Sabah United Chinese Chamber of Commerce (SUCCC) president, Tan Sri Andrew Liew Sui Fatt was elected as one of the six vice presidents of ACCCIM.

The meeting also saw Ranau Chinese Chamber of Commerce president, Datuk Jimmy Tham being elected as one of ACCCIM committee members.

In the ceremony officiated by Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Tan Sri Ter Leong Yap retained his presidential post while Datuk Liew Sew Yee was elected as his deputy.

While pledging to do his best to foster good relations between SUCCC and ACCCIM, Andrew also hoped that the state government led by Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal would support SUCCC as did Mahathir to ACCCIM.

“We, the SUCCC fully support the state government of Sabah and we hope that the chief minister will support our association’s endeavour to propel the state economy forward together as well,” he said.

According to him, ACCCIM will host the World Chinese Entrepreneurs Convention in Kuala Lumpur in August next year which the prime minister has agreed to attend.
