KOTA KINABALU: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Hajiji Haji Noor said the  formalisation of the alliance between the three main chambers in Sabah augurs well with  the business thrust in the State Government’s Hala Tuju Sabah Maju Jaya (SMJ)  development plan.  

The Chief Minister said this when meeting with a delegation from the Sabah Bumiputera  Chamber of Commerce (SBCC), Sabah United Chinese Chambers of Commerce  (SUCCC) and the Kadazandusun Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) at Menara  Kinabalu near here on Thursday. 

Hajiji said with the alliance in place, the chambers could now complement the State  Government’s efforts in realising its SMJ objectives. 

According to SBCC President Datuk Hasnol Ayub who led the delegation together with  SUCCC President Tan Sri Andrew Liew Sui Fatt and KCCI Acting President Datuk  Ladislaus Maluda, they had briefed Hajiji on the setting up of a committee comprising the  three chambers. 

“Previously we have a loose cooperation, so now we believe it is an opportune time for  us to formalise it so that we are united in terms of purpose,” said Hasnol after the meeting  with Chief Minister. 

“It was a positive discussion with the Chief Minister,” he said. 

Hasnol said they had also informed the Chief Minister that they planned to hold a  business-to-business (B2B) visit to Nusantara to establish a business network following  the shifting of Indonesia’s capital to Kalimantan. 

“We thanked the Chief Minister for supporting the three chambers and we look forward to  assisting the State Government now that we have formalised our relations,” he said.
