Speech by Dato’ Hii Ngo Sing, Immediate Past President During the Annual General Meeting of SMA on 27 June 2010

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Thank you very much for attending the 2010 Annual General Meeting.

In 2009, most Sarawak Manufacturers were affected by the global economic crisis, and the activities were focusing on addressing and overcoming the economic situation. Besides that, the Publication Committee had been successfully published the SMA 46th Anniversary Magazine and Membership Directory 2009.

The information in the directory includes SMA's Members Company Name, Address, Tel No, Fax No, E-mail, Website, Representative and Products / Business Line.

Other information like SMA's Profile, SMA's History in Pictures (2003 - 2009), Development Financial Institutions, Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) and Tax Incentives for the Manufacturing Sector in Malaysia is also included.

SMA Council Members had attended a few activities throughout the year 2009, one of the activities was the Economic Council Roadshow organized by Economic Planning Unit of the Prime Minister's Department on 5 February 2009. The main objective of the Roadshow was to gather feedback and suggestions from the private sectors on how to address and overcome the current economic situation.

On 10 February 2009, SMA Council Members paid a call on YB Datuk Amar Abang Hj Abdul Rahman Zohari bin Tun Datuk Abang Hj Openg, Minister of Housing, Sarawak.
SMA Council Members had also paid a call on YB Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr George Chan, the Deputy Chief Minister cum the Minister of Industrial Development on 1 April 2009. SMA appealed the Ministries to promote local products by encouraging contractors and suppliers to purchase made-in-Sarawak products in the wake of global economic recession.
In order to promote local products, SMA Member Manufacturers participated in the Malaysia-Made Product Exhibition 2009 in conjunction with the Buy Malaysia-Made Product Campaign in Kuching and Sibu.

In order to understand the investment situation in Sarawak, the Ministry of Industrial Development (MID) Sarawak and Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Cawangan Sarawak conducted a study on Cost of Doing Business in Sarawak. SMA Council Members provided their views and data for the above Study.

A Briefing on the Final Report on the Cost of Doing Business in Sarawak was given by Ms Annie Wong, Associate Professor of UiTM Sarawak at Hilton Hotel, Kuching on 22 December 2009. SMA appealed a copy for reference, but disappointed that so far we haven’t received the report.

Our Prime Minister cum Finance Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak unveiled the New Economic Model (NEM) at "Invest Malaysia 2010" conference on 30 March 2010 with the hope that NEM will transform the nation into a high-income economy nation on the right path towards attaining developed nation status by 2020.

The NEM requires bold changes through an Economic Transformation Programme (ETP). The ETP will be driven by eight Strategic Reform Initiatives (SRIs) which will form the basis of policy measures. Implementation of the ETP will drive Malaysia to achieve the following characteristics. Malaysia will be:

(1) Re-energising the private sector to drive growth;
(2) Developing a quality workforce and reducing dependency on foreign labour;
(3) Creating a competitive domestic economy;
(4) Strengthening the public sector;
(5) Transparent and market-friendly affirmative action;
(6) Building the knowledge base and infrastructure;
(7) Enhancing the sources of growth;
(8) Ensuring sustainability of growth.

The Government will gather the input from the public and provide them the opportunity to be part of the decision-making progress in transforming the nation's economy. We hope that the NEM will achieve the goals of accelerating the State's economic growth and development, as well as bringing benefit to local manufacturers.

I was elected as President of SMA in 2004. In accordance to the SMA constitution, the President should not serve more than 3 terms of 6 years, I have to relinquish my position as President now. I would like to express my appreciation for your support and cooperation in the past 6 years.

A new President will be elected and I hope all of our members will continue support and work together with him.

Thank you.
