砂拉越可能成为使用气球卫星

首席部长拿督阿玛阿邦佐哈里指出,一旦成功研发及设置“气球卫星”项目,砂拉越将可成为全球首个使用气球卫星接收通信讯号的地区。 他说,为了让讯号可在内陆和高山区获得广泛覆盖,来自美国硅谷的志工日前在砂州内陆和高山地区展开自愿性研发项目,其中包括“气球卫星”(Ballon Satelit)设置的可行性。 他披露,由于砂州地理因素关系,若在内陆地区,尤其是山区建设电讯塔会因为高山的阻挡,导致通信讯号微弱甚至无法接收讯号。因此,他认为在高山地区建设“气球卫星”或是一项很好的概念。 他补充,“气球卫星”项目研发目前乃是实验性阶段,一旦成功,砂州也将实验性落实使用。 阿邦佐哈里是在古晋为砂土著子女经济基金会创设的数码革新枢纽主持开幕仪式上致词时,如是表示。他强调,本身昨日在美里内陆,在当地获悉有关研发项目。他亦赞扬这群志工在研发项目时的同时不忘教育当地小孩。 “时代巨轮不断前进,过去传统模式早已被科技取代。根据一项国际具权威经济报告显示,亚马逊网上购物商城、面子书、及微软公司单在今年首个季度就已赚进250亿美元的盈利。” 他指出,砂拉越是时候要面向全世界,砂州必须透过革新方式将现有传统经济转型为数码经济。在现今时代看来最有价值的资源不再是石油,而是数据。 他表示,世界如今已迈入全新技术革命,也被称为是第四代工业革命。但砂州目前进度仍处在第二代工业革命,即电力技术革命的途中。他认为,为了迎向大数据趋势前进,砂州必须直接跳跃至第四次工业革命。 “其实砂州拥有各领域专才,但遗憾的是,在本地尤其是古晋欠缺可以培育专才天赋的生态平台,促使他们选择走出砂州到外国大展才艺。” 另外,他在较后接受媒体询问时指出,继吉隆坡国际机场后,古晋将成为全国第二大的物流支配中心。他希望,一旦在沙玛再也的数码村建竣启用后,届时可以善用此项优势,为本地有关业者制定更具规划的程序进行物流支配工作。 较早前,砂土著子女经济基金会主席拿督连达立在致词时指出,该基金会创设的数码革新枢纽是沙玛再也区数码村的前身,沙玛再也区数码村预计在2020年第一季度将全面投入运行。 他说,为了进一步丰富该枢纽中心的生态系统,砂土著子女经济基金也和11个战略合作伙伴交换协议,旨在宣传创新数码科技及创意方面达到共识及合作。

巴达旺市议会主席罗克强提醒石角德莎威拉、石角廉价屋及煤炭路地区的居民,不要在路旁种植蔬菜或果树,以免影响道路使用者的视线。 他指出,他接获许多民众关于此事的投诉。 他说,民众不满这些种植在路旁的蔬菜或果树,如芒果、椰子、香蕉和木瓜树,影响他们的视线,导致意外的风险。 “这些果树不止对道路使用者带来不便,也会对电灯柱和电线柱等设施带来破坏。” 罗克强呼吁居民关注此事,避免成为车祸意外的肇祸者。 他表示,市议会可能会对这些种植在路旁的植物采取行动,如清理它们。 另一方面,他透露巴达旺地区已经有数项解决水患问题的计划,这些计划是由地方政府部及水利灌溉局合作落实。

砂人联党主席拿督沈桂贤强调,该党自去年砂州选举过后就已做好准备工作,迎接第14届全国大选的到来,而且候选人名单也已呈上予砂拉越国阵主席兼砂首长拿督阿玛阿邦佐哈里。 拿督沈桂贤为辉煌条纹远征车队主持挥旗仪式后受询时表示,关于第14届全国大选的准备事宜,自砂拉越州选过后,就已告诉党员及干部们不要“选完就停止”,而是继续努力,随时做好选前的准备工作。 “这是很重要的,若我们平常每时每刻时刻都做好准备,就能从容迎战大选的到来,我们也不是因为大选要到了,才会出来基层走动。” 他表示,该党石角区服务中心随时准备好,敞开门户服务民众;而它们的流动服务团队每周都会在古晋、泗里街、美里、诗巫等不同地区的饮食坊出现,以方便民众反映课题及传达人民讯息,这就是所谓服务民众。 询及该党是否有提呈名单予国阵最高领导层一事,沈桂贤证实,该党很早就将名单提呈上去了,而且也不是第一次提呈,而是二次了,第一次是砂首长生日诞辰时提呈。 他强调,自己一直告诉该党的潜能候选人提呈名单只是其中一个程序,更为重要的是,他们要有强而有力的良好记录及真诚服务的心,而非服务只为了求曝光率。 他续说,该党也不想让人们认为他们只有在大选前才出来露面,就算他们的名字已呈上,若他们并无任何表现,他们的名字最后仍会被撤换。 另一方面,询及与联民党议席事宜,沈桂贤强调,砂拉越国阵只有4个成员党,任何政党都可宣称他们拥有有胜算的人选,人联党可以接受对方成为候选人,不过,他们必须参加砂人联党。 询及是否有接到联民党有胜算的候选人有意申请加入人联党一提,沈桂贤说,就算行动党或人民公正党有胜算的候选人有意参加人联党,该党也乐于接受,并打趣说:“要填写砂人联党申请表格并不难。”

巴达旺市议会成立21周年纪念活动

unnamed

砂地方政府及房屋部长拿督沈桂贤披露,巴达旺市议会如今所面对的严峻挑战就是要将乡区打造成城市区,因此市议会所有职员的思想必须要改变,而不能一直停留在乡区的时代。 他是在巴达旺市议会欢庆成立21周年纪念活动上致词时,如是表示。 他说,巴达旺市议会的前身为古晋县参议会,在成为巴达旺市议会后已走过21年的历史,这是不容易的事情。因此该市议会的所有市议员及职员有必要知道该市议会所扮演的角色,甚至在未来设定计划及方向,并改变现有的模式及方式。 “地方议会就是扮演地方政府的角色,并有特权执行任务。地方议会也是联邦及州政府的前线,同时也是最接近人民的地方议会,获得首要消息。地方议会职员所拥有的态度、管理及服务都是在扮演政府的角色,尤其是在服务人民方面,也和人民与政府之间的关系搭建桥梁。” 他也呼吁所有市议会的职员能够秉持喜爱这份工作的热诚,而非将工作视为领薪水而已,这样一来也无法将工作提升到最好。 沈桂贤形容,巴达旺市议会就是古晋县参议会的孩子,因此身为孩子的巴达旺市议会一定要比“爸爸”做的更好,其父亲以往仅接受到中五的教育,而他本身有机会前往大学深造,这也证明孩子要比爸爸更为出色。 另外,为了更能够与社区及居民进行互动,巴达旺市议会设立Whats App群组开放予民众提供建议、建设性的反馈与意见以提高市议会的民生服务及向前迈进。 巴达旺市议会主席罗克强说,为了方便民众辨认有关道路属于该议会的管辖范围,因此该市议会也在路牌上贴上议会的标志。 “许多公众投诉一些道路的问题,是属于其他部门的管辖权限并非该议会,因此,相信在路牌张贴该议会的标志后,民众可将问题反映到相关的单位做出处理。” 此外,他表示,该议会也派遣8名执法官员参加由新生村警署交通组所举办的交通督导员课程,希望通过该课程在必要时,可出动协助缓解议会管辖区内的交通阻塞。 他也呼吁纳税人能够履行职责,定时缴税,这是因为门牌税为议会的主要收入来源,作为营运开销,也占了议会总税收的60至70巴仙,让议会可以利用税收作为提升民生服务。


古晋直飞深圳航班年杪起航

古晋直飞深圳将于今年杪启动! 砂首长拿督阿玛阿邦佐哈里日前在马当Metro City海鲜花园饮食中心主持开幕仪式上致词时,如是宣布。 他说,砂州经济的其中一个重要领域来自于旅游业,而旅游部长拿督阿都卡林表示今年首六个月到来砂州的游客比去年同期增加了15万人次,这也证明砂拉越仍有许多空间进行旅游业的推广活动。 “为了让古晋市连接其它城市的航空枢纽,阿都卡林致力争取直航来到古晋,而有望在今年杪与古晋连接的城市就是中国深圳。” 他感到欣慰的是,届时将有深圳至古晋及古晋至深圳的直飞航班启动,同时,也在对接待香港的飞机进行商讨,这是基于在香港机场有所限制,给予抵达香港航班的时间不具吸引力,而导致机位预定情况不够理想。
