Sarawak is indeed in very good hands as the Chief Minister Taib Mahmud says that the Sarawak economic growth is on the right track.
What else do we need?
Taib as leader of the state proclaims as such which was unlike Idris Jala who said that the country Malaysia would be bankrupt in 2009.(he has since rescinded on this statement) We need very strong reassuring political statements which for the business community above all will mean a stable and secured business environment.
Politically also there should also be no upheavels and Sarawak will continue to progress and develop.
However ,one himself musts be thrifty and musts make sure that we don’t burn a HOLE in our pocket even though we have been assured. Taibs statement which appeared in bernama news is extracted below.

Taib, who is also the State Finance Minister, said based on the positive economic growth in China and India, it was expected that similar growth would be experienced in other Asian countries including Malaysia.
“We believe Sarawak can overcome the global economic recession and at the same time (are) confident that the state economic growth is on the right track,” he told reporters after chairing the state Barisan Nasional (BN) and Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) meetings in conjunction with the State Legislative Assembly sitting at the PBB headquarters, here.
On the 2012 State Budget to be tabled at tomorrow’s sitting, Taib, who is the state BN chairman and PBB president, said next year’s budget would be a realistic one that focused on stimulating economic growth and strengthening existing sources of income.
Only two bills will be tabled in the eight-day sitting that will start tomorrow, namely the Supply (2012) Bill 2011 or better known as the 2012 Budget and Supplementary Supply (2011) Bill 2011.
The sitting will end on Nov 23.
