The Greatest Responsibility of Ubah Is To Both Prepare The Future For The Young And Prepare The Young For The Future.(en/bm/cn)

47th DAP Anniversary Statement By DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng Released In DAP Headquarters, Kuala Lumpur on 18 March 2013

DAP celebrates the 47th anniversary of the birth of our party on 18.3.1966 for the first time in Johor, the critical new frontier that PR must win to bring about Ubah or Change. Inikalilah! It is now or never!

For the first time in our nation's 56-year history, change is possible.
For the first time ever, Malaysians have a real alternative.
For the first time ever, there is now a clear and tangible choice between a regime that is undemocratic, corrupt, racist and bankrupt, versus one that is clean, practices integrity, values freedom and human rights and is proven to be competent, accountable and transparent.

But one thing for sure, change will not come easy. In the last few weeks we have already seen cases of hooliganism by BN thugs, when even the Chief Minister's Office in Penang can be attacked by an unruly mob and Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim's bus was stoned and pelted when he was inside the bus, resulting in injury to a few people. This is only the beginning – BN's desperate tricks will only get worse.

DAP and PR's biggest challenge is still electoral fraud by BN and biasedness by a partisan Election Comission in the coming general elections. The electoral rolls are still not cleaned up with the astonishing 28% unidentifiable voters or 140,000 unaccounted for voters in Selangor. Is this the 28% "handicap" built in to the electoral process in benefit BN?

Further the constituency delineation is gerrymandered in an undemocratic manner to benefit BN. The smallest parliament seat in Malaysia, P125 Putrajaya, has 15,308 voters as of Quarter 3, 2012 while the largest seat, P109 Kapar, has 142,419 voters. The number of voters in the largest seat is 9 times that of the smallest seat.

In other words, one vote in P125 Putrajaya is roughly equal to 9 votes in P109 Kapar. This is a gross violation of the 'One Man One Vote' principle where one person's vote should have the same weightage and power as another person's vote.

For this reason PR is starting at a disadvantage as we have to win more than our fair share of the popular vote to win 50% of the seats, or else BN will steal the election. The disparity between votes received by BN and seats won by BN at every election is clearly shown below.

In other words PR has to win more than 51% of the popular votes,not 50% of the votes to win Putrajaya. It is therefore extremely important that we now put aside whatever minor differences we may have and rally united behind our party, and behind the Pakatan Rakyat coalition.

As Mahatma Gandhi once said, "There is enough in this world for everyone’s need, but there is not enough in this world for one man’s greed." Corruption by BN is deeply entrenched in Malaysia. Whilst making corruption history is amongst the highest priority of PR, the most difficult task is to give our young hope of a brighter future. In other words, the greatest responsibility of Ubah is to both prepare the future for the young and prepare the young for the future

An education system that is available, accessible and affordable must also inculcate a culture of excellence. Instead we have increasing mediocrity with the drop in Malaysia's ranking in the Trends in International Math and Science Study (TIMSS) 2011 from 20th to 26th in the Mathematics and from 21st to 32nd in Science. This confirms the 2009 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) that the competency of 15-year olds in Malaysia was 3 years behind the international average.

Malaysians as a nation face a talent cliff that can hamper economic growth and cripple our efforts to transform ourselves into a high-income, knowledge-based developed country. Unless we grow and build human talent, retrain and retain them as well as attract new talent, we face the risk of not just falling behind from new developed economies like Singapore and South Korea but also being overtaken by neighbours like Indonesia and Thailand.

PR offers not just free education but will abandon political connections in favour of choosing the the best and brightest. At the same time, PR will build learning centres to give tuition to academically weak students so that we do not only focus on the best but can create a rising tide of supporting talents of high standards.

To succeed, Malaysia needs to be freed from the shackles on our mind imposed by a BN that refused to let us think. The greatest gift a government can bestow on its population is not cash handouts but knowledge and freedom from fear. Plato said, "We can forgive a child who is afraid of the dark, the real tragedy is when men and women are afraid of the light".

Let us UBAH and Change to shine the light on all four corners of Malaysia!

Kenyataan Media Ulangtahun ke-47 DAP oleh Setiausaha Agung DAP, Lim Guan Eng di Ibu Pejabat DAP, Kuala Lumpur pada 18 Mac 2013.

Tanggungjawab Terbesar UBAH Adalah Untuk Menyediakan Masa Depan Untuk Anak Muda Dan Mempersiapkan Anak Muda Untuk Masa Depan.
DAP meraikan ulang tahun ke-47 parti pada 18 Mac 1966 buat pertama kalinya di Johor, sebuah medan pertempuran baru yang kritikal yang mesti dimenangi PR untuk membawa Per'UBAH'an. Ini kalilah! It is now or never!

Untuk pertama kalinya dalam sejarah 56 tahun negara kita, terdapat peluang untuk perubahan.

Untuk pertama kalinya, rakyat Malaysia mempunyai pilihan yang nyata.

Untuk pertama kalinya, wujud pilihan yang jelas dan ketara di antara rejim yang tidak demokratik, korup, mengamalkan politik perkauman dan bankrap, berbanding alternatifnya yang lebih bersih, mengamalkan integriti, nilai-nilai kebebasan dan hak asasi manusia serta terbukti Cekap, Akauntabel dan Telus.

Tetapi satu perkara yang pasti, perubahan tidak akan datang dengan mudah. Dalam beberapa hari lalu kita telah pun melihat karenah ganas oleh samseng BN, apabila Pejabat Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang pun boleh diserang oleh gerombolan yang tidak terkawal dan bas Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim dibaling dengan batu ketika beliau berada di dalam bas dan menyebabkan kecederaan kepada beberapa orang. Ini adalah hanya permulaan – tindakan terdesak BN akan bertambah buruk.

Cabaran terbesar DAP bersama PR adalah masih lagi wujudnya penyelewengan pilihan raya oleh BN dan sifat tidak adil Suruhanjaya Pilihanraya yang partisan dalam pilihan raya umum akan datang. Daftar pemilih masih tidak dibersihkan. Di Selangor, terdapat hakikat yang mengejutkan bahawa 28% atau 140,000 pengundi baru tidak dapat dikenalpasti. Adakah 28% ini kelebihan yang sengaja diwujudkan dalam proses pilihan raya untuk manfaat BN?

Tambahan pula persempadanan semula kawasan pilihan raya atau 'gerrymandering' dilakukan dengan cara yang tidak demokratik serta memberi manfaat kepada BN. Kawasan Parlimen terkecil di Malaysia, P125 Putrajaya, mempunyai 15,308 pengundi pada Suku ke-3 tahun 2012, manakala kawasan terbesar, P109 Kapar, mempunyai 142,419 pengundi. Bilangan pengundi di kawasan parlimen yang terbesar adalah 9 kali jumlah kawasan parlimen terkecil.

Dalam erti kata lain, satu undi di P125 Putrajaya adalah lebih kurang sama dengan 9 undi di P109 Kapar. Ini merupakan pelanggaran kasar prinsip ‘Satu Orang Satu Undi’ di mana undi seorang harus mempunyai wajaran yang sama dan kuasa berbanding undi orang lain.
Atas sebab ini PR akan bermula dengan handikap kerana kita perlu memenangi lebih banyak undi popular untuk memenangi 50% kerusi, jika tidak BN akan memenangi pilihan raya. Perbezaan antara undi yang diterima oleh BN dan kerusi yang dimenangi oleh BN pada setiap pilihan raya ditunjukkan di bawah dengan jelas:

Seperti yang pernah disebutkan Mahatma Gandhi, “Khazanah bumi ini cukup untuk keperluan setiap orang, tetapi tidak akan mencukupi untuk ketamakan walau seorang manusia.” Rasuah oleh BN berakar umbi di Malaysia. Meskipun menghapuskan rasuah adalah antara keutamaan tertinggi PR, tugas yang paling sukar adalah untuk memberi harapan masa depan yang lebih cerah untuk anak-anak kita . Dalam kata lain, tanggungjawab terbesar UBAH adalah menyediakan masa depan untuk anak muda dan mempersiapkan anak muda untuk masa depan.

Sebuah sistem pendidikan yang tersedia, mudah didapati dan berpatutan harganya mestilah juga memupuk budaya kecemerlangan. Namun sebaliknya kita hanya berjaya meningkatkan budaya kesederhanaan dengan penurunan kedudukan Malaysia dalam Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) pada tahun 2011 dari tangga ke-20 turun sehingga 26 dalam Matematik, manakala dari tangga ke-21 jatuh hingga 32 dalam bidang Sains. Ini mengesahkan Program Penilaian Pelajar Antarabangsa (PISA) tahun 2009 bahawa kecekapan pelajar berusia 15 tahun di Malaysia adalah 3 tahun terkebelakang berbanding purata antarabangsa.

Rakyat Malaysia keseluruhannya sebagai sebuah negara sedang berdepan dengan jurang kemerosotan bakat dan tenaga kerja yang boleh menjejaskan pertumbuhan ekonomi dan melumpuhkan usaha untuk berubah menjadi sebuah negara berpendapatan tinggi, dan sebuah negara maju berasaskan pengetahuan. Kecuali dengan membangun dan membina bakat manusia, melatih semula dan mengekalkan mereka serta menarik bakat-bakat baru, kita akan berhadapan risiko untuk bukan sahaja ketinggalan berbanding ekonomi negara maju baru seperti Singapura dan Korea Selatan tetapi juga akan dipintas oleh negara-negara jiran seperti Indonesia dan Thailand.

PR tidak hanya menawarkan pendidikan percuma malah akan mengabaikan perkaitan politik demi memilih yang terbaik dan yang cemerlang. Pada masa yang sama, PR akan membina pusat kecemerlangan untuk memberi tuisyen kepada pelajar lemah akademik supaya kita tidak hanya memberi tumpuan kepada yang terbaik tetapi turut mewujudkan sebuah arus bakat sokongan dengan standard yang tinggi.
Untuk berjaya, Malaysia perlu dibebaskan daripada jerat belenggu minda oleh BN yang enggan membiarkan kita berfikir. Hadiah terbesar yang boleh diberikan kerajaan kepada penduduknya bukanlah pemberian wang tunai tetapi ilmu pengetahuan dan kebebasan daripada ketakutan. Plato pernah menyebut, “Kita boleh memaafkan kanak-kanak yang takut kepada kegelapan, tragedi yang sebenar adalah apabila lelaki dan wanita dewasa takut kepada cahaya”.

Mari kita UBAH dan membawa pencerahan kepada semua empat penjuru Malaysia!

民主行动党秘书长林冠英于2013年3月18日在吉隆坡行动党总部发表民主行动党成立47周年纪念献词:

改朝换代,告别腐败的重大任务在于,为年轻一代的未来做准备,为了未来,让年轻一代做好准备。

今天是民主行动党自1966年3月18日创党以来第47周年纪念。我们将在柔佛州庆祝党庆, 这也是我们在柔佛州这个重要的前线州庆祝党庆,这是民联必须赢下的州属,告别贪腐,改朝换代。

这是马来西亚立国56年以来,第一次改朝换代的机会。
这是我国历史上第一次,马来西亚人民有真正的替代选择。
第一次,我们拥有清楚、切实的选择,究竟人民要一个不民主、贪污、种族主义及导致国家破产的政权,还是一个廉洁、重视自由及人权、能干、有公信力及透明的政府。

肯定的是,改朝换代不容易。过去几个星期我们已经看过国阵流氓的下三烂手段,就连槟州首长也无法免于暴徒的攻击,而拿督斯里安华坐在巴士内时也被人抛石头及投掷物品,结果数人被砸伤。这只是开始,国阵的阴招将会越来越多。

来届大选,民主行动党及民联最大的挑战依然是选举舞弊, 这是国阵及具政治偏见的选委会所导致的。我们的选民册还没有清理干净,在雪州。选民册上还有28%或14万名无法辩识的选民,这28%选民是不是加插进去选举过程,以让国阵得利?

还有,选区划分也是在不民主的情况下,为己党利益擅改选区,让国阵得利。 截至2012年第三季,我国最小的国会选区是P125布城,选民人数为1万5308人,而最大的国会选区为P109加埔区,14万2419人。最大选区的选民人数是最小选区的9倍。

换句话说,一个布城国会选民相等于加埔9个选民。这严重违反"一人一票"原则,每一个人的票应该同等重要。

因此,民联已经输在起跑点上,我们还得赢得更多选票,才能获得超过50% 的议席,否则,国会就会窃取选举。每一次的大选中,国阵所获选票及议席的差距如下:

换句话说,民联要入主布城,必须获得多过51%的多数票,而不是50%的选票。因此,在这个时候,我们应该放下任何不重要的歧见和差异,在党内、民联团结一致,迎战大选。

印席圣雄甘地说过:"这个世界足以满足每个人的需要,但不足以填满每个人的欲望。"国阵的贪腐已经根深蒂固。我们要告别腐败,最困难的任务就是让我们的年轻一代对光明的前程充满希望。换句话说,改朝换代,告别腐败的重大任务在于,为年轻一代的未来做准备,为未来让年轻一代做好准备。

一个可近、可用、可获得的教育制度也能培育追求卓越的文化。我国数理科水平下跌,显示出我们越来越平庸。2011年国际数理水平评估(TIMSS)中,我国数学成绩排位从20名滑落26名,理科成绩从21名滑落至32名。这确定了2009年国际学生评估(PISA)的结果,那就是我国15岁的学生水平比国际水平落后3年。

马来西亚面对的"人才悬崖",足以摧毁我们的经济成长及转型成为高收入、知识型经济体的努力。除非我们栽培人才、再培训及留住他们,并且吸引新人才,我们面对的风险不只是落后于发达经济体如新加坡、韩国,我们也将落后于印尼及泰国。

民联不只将提供免费教育,我们也将摒弃政治联系,选择最好的、最优秀的。同时,民联也会兴建学习中心,协助学业成绩较弱的学生,让我们不只注重最好的学生,也创造一个支持人才进步提升的环境。

如果要成功,马来西亚必须免于国阵加诸于我们的思想镣铐,我们必须思考。一个政府能给予它的国民最好的礼物,不是现金,而是知识及免于恐惧。柏拉图说,"孩子怕黑暗是情有可原的,人生真正的悲剧是成人害怕光明。"

让我们改朝换代,让改变的光明照亮全马各个角落!

Sustainable Development Is A Primary Responsibility Of Good Governance To Prepare The Future For The Young.(en/cn)

Posted: 17 Mar 2013 10:06 PM PDT

Opening Speech By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng for Penang Institute Conference On: The Asian Challenge of Sustainable Development At G Hotel On 18.3.2013.

Let me begin by congratulating the Penang Institute for organising the 5th Penang in Asia lecture, featuring yet another prominent individual – scientist and environmentalist Dr Rajendra Pachauri. On behalf of Penang, may I bid a warm welcome to Dr Pachauri.

Thanks to Dr Pachauri's work with the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which was awarded the Noble Peace Prize in 2007 with former US Vice-President Al Gore, environmental issues have become a high priority in the world today. It is beholden on all humanity to ensure that we do not squander away the wealth of our earth, especially for the sake of our future generations. As I always like to say, we do not inherit the earth but merely borrow it from our children. It is our sacred duty to return it to our children better than when we were first entrusted to it.

All over the world, sustainable development is beginning to become something of a mantra. Here in Penang, sustainable development has not only been our commitment but also our guiding principle. Penang's vision of the future is a "Cleaner, Greener, Safer and Healthier Penang", as only then can we be No.1 in Malaysia.

Penang is the first state in Malaysia to join global cities around the world to ban free plastic bags every day. It was a controversial risk which the state government took, not only against the plastic industry but also against a deeply entrenched local affinity for plastic bags. Though resisted at the beginning, it has now become a source of pride for Penangites as they tow their environmentally friendly shopping bags everywhere.

After the success of our "No Free Plastic Bag" campaign, we have taken the movement a step further by also banning the usage of polystyrene containers and packaging last year. Besides that, we have also introduced no-smoking zones, No Car Day on Sundays, introduced a conservation surcharge to limit water waste and managed to achieve the highest recycling rate in the country at 24% by 2012, far surpassing the country's recycling rate target of 20% 7 years from now by 2020.

To encourage healthy lifestyles, we have hosted numerous events from triathlons to the unique 4-stage "Penang Run", over hills and flatlands that will take place over four separate occasions with a total distance of 77km around the Penang island. At the same time, Penang also aims to be a first cycling state in Malaysia with the construction of a round-the-island bicycle lane as well as over 200 kilometres of cycling tracks across SeberangPerai.

In our drive to ensure a Cleaner, Greener, Healthier and Safer Penang, we have also made decisions against big business such as closing down the Lee Rubber factory in Paya Terubong, once the largest rubber processing facility in Malaysia, that emitted a foul smell complained by residents over 25 years.

Our efforts have of course bore some fruit. For the first time ever, Penang has now been recognised by ECA International as the most livable city in Malaysia and the 8th most livable city in Asia. Besides that, Penang was recently selected as the No. 4 top place for retirement in the world, becoming the only Asian city in the top 8.

In order to further promote our green policies and facilitate all the green initiatives in Penang, we established the Penang Green Council (PGC) in 2011. PGC seeks to enable, empower and enrich all stakeholders to practice sustainable development that protects the environment and quality of life. In Malaysia, only Penang have a set of government driven incentive schemes that provides a platform for schools, business or private sectors that are genuinely promoting sustainable living to showcase their green products, services and technologies, and house-to-house education for the communities.

In creating low carbon sustainable environment, the state government has also provided free CAT bus services around the George Town heritage enclave. We have also provided a Park & Ride service through Bridge Express Shuttle Transit (Best) buses which are free shuttle services to and fro between Seberang Perai, the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Area and Balik Pulau.

Unfortunately public transport is the sole prerogative of the federal government. Traffic congestion is a direct result of the under-investment by the Federal government in public transport and basic infrastructure as well as mind-boggling situation of having more vehicles(2.3 million) than people(1.6 million) in Penang. This has resulted in a public transport modal share of 3% state-wide and 8% in George Town.

We are thinking outside the box by offering Rapid Penang RM10 million every year to provide free bus services throughout Penang during peak hours but was rejected by the federal government. We have no choice but to build highway roads much as we like to move people and not vehicles.

On 11 Dec 2011, Penang municipal council has launched Car Free day in George Town. The state government is also working on making Penang the first bicycle state in Malaysia with a total of 200km of bicycle lanes for both the island and the mainland, out of which, 120km is on the island.

For these green efforts, in 2012, Penang has been nominated as the first small city to join The Climate and Clean Air Coalition to Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (CCAC), an environmental initiative aligned to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). These are still baby steps as many aspects of environmental policies are the prerogative of the Federal government such as renewable energy.

Therefore, we hope that we will able to formulate and implement more policies, rules and regulations that will bring greater benefit to our environment and people in Putrajaya. But of course, green environmental policies are only one side of the coin.

Sustainable development must also come along with a sustainable economy. In this, we have adopted a 3-pronged strategy by firstly encouraging the setting up of clean, high-tech, high-skilled, knowledge-based industries by MNCs and secondly, by helping to transform and develop SMEs and thirdly by setting up an SME Village to let them purchase land or rent ready-built factory buildings.

The effort to transform our SMEs have been driven through the state government's initiatives such as the Penang SMART Centre, set up in 2009 to provide consultancy and services to SMEs in order to help them to develop their businesses, as well as the RM40 million Penang SME Centre in Bayan Lepas, which is designed to be an incubator for new SMEs as well as to move existing SMEs up the value chain. As a result, I am proud to inform you that 4 out of the 6 National SME Innovation Awards in 2012 were won by Penang SMEs.

At the same time, we also recognise that sustainable development is inextricably linked to the question of energy. Thus, as part of our effort to ensure efficient and sustainable energy use, our recently launched developed nation road map 2013-23 Penang Paradigm blueprint has proposed that all future medium and high-cost developments should seek to be GBI-certified. GBI, or the Green Building Index, is the Malaysian industry-wide rating standard for sustainability in the construction sector which focuses not only on the impact of construction against the environment, but also on the management of energy and other resourcesof the building.

Today, governments as well as the private sector must not see environmental care as an additional cost to development. Rather, it should be seen as an investment. The competition to be the best must not be at the expense of Mother Earth because if the environment is damaged, there will be no winner in the end.

Hence, Penang is firmly committed towards the global effort to conserve the environment that is best exemplified by the work of those such as Dr Pachauri and the IPCC. Penang has in recent years participated in, among others, the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association Climate Change Networking Committee (Sept/Oct 2009), COP 16 in Cancún, Mexico (Dec 2010), the Gwangju Initiative at the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA) World Congress in 2011 in Korea and the Gwangju Cities Declaration 2011. These international initiatives help to motivate and sustain our own efforts to build a Cleaner, Greener, Safer and Healthier Penang.

Sustainable development is a primary responsibility of good governance to prepare the future for the young.

Today, we are proud to forge an invaluable bond of friendship with Dr Pachauri and the IPCC. I am confident that his lecture today will further inspire us towards the greater mission to preserve our environment. I also hope that this lecture will mark the start of a new partnership between Dr Pachauri and the IPCC with the state of Penang.

Thank you.

槟州首席部长林冠英于2013年3月18日在槟城研究院研讨会"亚洲可持续发展的挑战"上发表演讲,重点如下:

可持续发展是良好施政的首要责任,也为年轻一代的未来做准备

可持续发展是全世界都在奉行的经典。在槟州,可持续发展不只是我们的责任也是我们的指导原则。槟州订下"槟州净绿,人民安康"的宏愿,唯有如此,我们才可以成为全马第一。

槟州是全马第一个加入全世界各大城市行列,成为第一个禁用免费塑料袋的州属。当时这是非常具争议性的,我们不只得罪塑料厂商,也得罪所有难以割舍免费塑料袋的民众。虽然一开始遭反弹,现在这项措施已经成为槟城人民引以为豪的尊严,走到哪里他们都会自备购物袋。

我们成功推行"资源有价,天天减塑"后,我们进一步采取在去年禁用保丽龙餐具。我们也推广无烟区、每周日无车日、征收保护水源附加费,我们也在2012年达到24%的再循环率,超越了我国订下在2020年达致20%再循环率的目标。

在鼓励健康生活方式,我们主办无数次的活动,从三项全能赛到4个阶段的槟城跑,上山下平原,跨越全槟岛77公里。同时,槟州也放眼成为全马第一个脚车州,设立环岛脚车道以及跨越威省共200公里的脚车道。

我们也不惜对付大商家如垄尾的南益树胶厂,它曾经是马来西亚最大的树胶加工厂,当地居民因树胶厂的臭味而投诉了25年。

因为我们的努力,槟州被ECA国际认可,成为马来西亚最宜居的城市、全亚洲八大宜居城市。槟州最近也被选为全世界第四大退休后最适合居住的城市,是唯一进入八强的亚洲城市。

为了进一步推广绿色政策及推动槟城活动,我们在2011年成立槟城绿色机构。槟州绿色机构的任务是启迪、赋权及促进各界人士实践环保及提升生活素质的可持续发展。在我国,只有槟州拥有一整套政府主导的奖掖计划,让真正推动可持续生活的学校、商家或私人界展示他们的绿色产品、服务及技术,我们甚至挨家挨户进行教育活动。

在打造低碳可持续环境方面,州政府也在乔治市古迹区提供免费的CAT巴士。我们也实施停车换乘,提供免费BEST巴士让乘客往返威省、峇六拜工业区及浮罗山背。

不幸地是,公共交通直接隶属联邦政府。交通阻塞是联邦政府忽略公共交通及基本设施直接导致了,我们也难以想像为何槟城交通工具数量达230万,比人口160万还多。这导致全州的公共交通分担率为3%,而乔治市为8%。

我们试图提供槟州快捷通每年1000万令吉,在车流量高峰区提供免费巴士服务,但是这项献议被联邦政府拒绝。我们别无选择,只好兴建高速公,我们希望移动人民而不是交通工具。

2012年,槟州第一次被选为参与联合国的气候与清洁空气联盟来控制短期大气污染物(CCAC)的小城市。这些措施都只是婴儿学步,很多环保政策其实属于联邦政府管辖,比如:可再生能源。

因此,我们希望,一旦入主布城,我们可以制订更多政策、条规,为环境及人民带来更多的利益。当然,绿色政策只是一方面。

可持续发展也必须与可持续经济同步。我们已经三管齐下,我们鼓励干净、高科技、高技能及知识型工业的设立,其二,我们协助中小型企业转型,其三,我们设立中小型村,让他们购地或租借现成的工厂建筑。

州政府主动协助中小型企业转型,我们在2009年设立SMART中心,为中小型企业提供咨询及服务,协助他们发展业务,我们也在峇六拜设立价值4000万令吉槟州中小型企业中心,这是新兴中小型企业的摇篮,也协助中小型企业提升。2012年,全国共有6家中小企业获得革新奖,其中4家得主来自槟城。

我们知道可持续发展无法逃避可再生能源。在最近推介的2013-2013槟城典范蓝图中,我们建议未来所有的中价及高价发展都应该获绿色建筑指标(GBI)。 绿色建筑指标是我国建筑领导对持可持续的评级指标,它不只评估工程对环境的影响,也评估建筑物的能源管理及其它资源的管理。

今天,政府与私人界不能再把环保视为发展的附加成本。环保应该视为一项投资,在竞争成为最优秀的同时,绝不能牺牲大自然,因为一旦环境被破坏了,最终谁都是输家。

永续发展是良好施政的首要责任,也为年轻一代的未来做准备 。
