SABAH DAP COMMITTED ON RURAL 为沙巴内陆区争取该有的权益,以及协助改善甘榜的社会经济发展



沙巴州的贫困率非常高,主要的问题是其基本设施的缺乏,公共设施的不足,这导致农村地区的生产率,竞争力以及经济发展都非常低。

沙巴民主行动党鼓励内陆区的企业家挺身而出,共同探讨和工作,以实现消除沙巴州的贫困,通过社会和经济活动和人民发展方案,提高甘榜人的生活水平和生活环境。 叶氏将会执行社区活动和农业企业项目,以协助改善甘榜人的生活。 沙巴民主行动党也敦促政府削减汽油价格,以及提供和改善内陆区的基本设施和公共设施,使内陆区能够在提高其社会经济发展,迈向进步。


Sabah DAP State Liaison Committee has appointed Dr Benjamin Yapp as Sabah DAP Parliamentary Liaison Chief for Interior cum Sabah State Rural development Bureau Chairman to improve the socio-economic development of the rural communities.

Since Dr Benjamin Yapp, a veteran Politician who had devoted 12 years in PBRS-BN as a senior Party leader, first joined Sabah DAP in May 2010, he made a pledge to contribute towards the socio-economic development for the rural populations, particularly in Keningau and Tenom through his involvement in the politics of development and hopes. Dr Benjamin Yapp does not expect any kind of rewards but his main concern is the people’s interest above all, particularly in the rural areas that inspired him to focus his attention in the interior.

Dr Benjamin Yapp in his statements said that as “Sabah DAP is committed towards improving the standard of living of the people of Sabah, particularly the rural populations, he has made plans to undertake his voluntary services in order to help bring progress to the rural communities”. Dr Benjamin is a visionary leader who has visions to develop the State into a well-established.

Self-reliant and rich State through the various innovative systems of approach, particularly in rural development planning, monitoring and evaluation as many of the aspects of rural development have been approached systematically for decades.   But, unfortunately in Sabah, the situations are far different from that of Peninsular Malaysia. Sabah on the other hand is regarded as the poorest State in Malaysia as opposed to Peninsular Malaysia that is so well-established with one of the world’s ultra modern infrastructures and facilities that Sabah is still far lacking behind and the reasons are obvious.

As far as Sabah DAP is concerned, we can do our humble parts by looking into the basic needs of our people, particularly those rural folks who are badly in need of our assistance, and professional guidance. As we do not have access to the resources and development funds, we can still do something for the people in our own ways. If, however, any party forms the Government, then it is its duties and responsibilities to develop the nation.  Government leaders and politicians should learn to accept constructive criticisms and suggestions and not feel cross against any good opposition leaders who have innovative, creative ideas and have good intentions for improvement in our society.

As for the rural populations, we need to encourage the local people in the interior to be skillful, innovative and help improve the rural populations to adapt to adverse or changing conditions. They cannot expect to improve their socio-economic development with their usual “kampong mentality” like taking life easy, drinking, wasting valuable time in unnecessary pastime and depending on their family lands for a living. They cannot depend on old ways of planting and farming methods for long.  Dr Benjamin said that many of the obstacles related to planning in a political context result from an inadequate sense of responsibility on the part of leaders and citizens in relation to social, economic, or emotional aspects detrimental to their growth and existence needed to be looked into seriously. Rural development programs relating to socio-economic development for the rural populations involve social, economic and environmental dimensions. We have to identify a portfolio of rural development projects that will help bring about the future conditions and development as expected by the rural communities stated Dr Benjamin Yapp in his media statement from Keningau.

Sabah DAP rural development Bureau shall introduce “Agro-enterprise” management approaches relating to production chains, market studies, and business plans at the appropriate time with the help of professional consultants for professional advice and expertise towards improving the knowledge of rural communities on the existence and management of bio-diversity and soil fertility to enhance success in the agro-based industry in the rural areas.  As rural development has been a major concern of the rural populations in relation to the State’s economic growth, social and political development, we should endeavor to find ways and means to develop our rural communities.

The incidence of poverty in Sabah is very high, coupled with lack of basic rural infrastructures, inadequate public amenities and utilities in the rural areas that have resulted in lack of initiatives, low productivity and the like.

Sabah DAP interior encouraged the rural communities to come forward to work together as entrepreneurs towards the eradication of poverty by participating in all forms of social and economic activities and the people’s development programs that would enhance their standard of living. The Bureau shall implement certain community programs and agro-based projects that would improve the rural standard of living.  Sabah DAP urged the Government to reduce prices of fuel and essential communities as well as to improve the basic rural infrastructures, public amenities and utilities so that the rural communities can improve their socio-economic development and progress in time to come.

沙巴民主行动党内陆流动服务队

民主行动党沙巴州联委会委任沙行动党内陆区负责人本杰明叶博士为沙行动党内陆发展局主任,为沙巴内陆区争取该有的权益,以及协助改善甘榜的社会经济发展。

本杰明博士是一位老资格的政治家,他曾经是PBRS-BN的资深党领袖。  叶氏于20105月加入沙巴民主行动党,并且做出承诺,他要透过参与政治来协助内陆甘榜的社会经济发展,特别是在根地咬及丹南区。 本杰明博士并不期望有任何回报,而最主要的是人民的利益高于一切,特别是内陆土著同胞的问题和需要引起他的关注。

本杰明博士,沙巴民主行动党承诺要改善沙巴州,特别是甘榜居民的生活水平 他与他的流动服务队将展开一系列的计划和服务,以帮助内陆区的甘榜人。 本杰明博士希望透过这些计划能够促使内陆区在各方面的发展和提升。

自力更生以及致富的方法是要通过各种创新的系统,特别是在内陆发展规划和监测。 几十年来已经有进行许多方面的评价,但遗憾的是在沙巴的情况与西马是很不一样的。 沙巴州是马来西亚最贫穷的州属,与拥有现代设施的西马半岛相比,沙巴州还远远落后一大段,其原因是显而易见的。

对沙行动党而言,我们是走到社区里,特别是内陆甘榜地区,他们是逼切需要我们的帮助和专业指导。虽然我们没有获得政府的拨款和发展基金,但是我们仍然会尽所能为人民服务。  任何一方的政党组成政府,那么就有义务和责任发展国家。政府领导人和政治家应学会接受建设性的批评和建议,并且不应该反对反对党领袖们创新和创意概念以改善和提升国家和社会的善意

至于甘榜人,我们需要鼓励当地土著同胞要创新和受训,以帮助他们改善农村,并且能够适应不断变化的社会。  如果不提高他们对社会经济的知识,让他们继续抱有甘榜人心态例如活得轻松,喝酒,浪费宝贵的时间以及依赖他们的传统土地,这是无法提升内陆经济发展,此外他们不能一直靠着传统的栽种植和养殖方法。 叶博士说,政府的规划结果不妥善一部分是因为领袖和人民在社会,经济,或责任感的意识并不强,并且也没有认真的研究和探讨。 内陆发展计划与社会经济发展涉及社会,经济和环境各方面。 本杰明继续说,我们必须找出适合于农村发展项目的计划和条件,真正能够有利于推动内陆区未来的发展

沙行动党内陆发展局将介绍农业企业管理法,是关于生产连锁技巧,市场研究,以及商机和投资等专业知识,以帮助和改善农村社区,并且提供的适当业务计划与土壤管理的教育,以加强以农业为基础的产业及其发展。 甘榜人已开始关注农村发展,并且这能够促进国家的经济增长,改善和发展社会与政治,因此我们应该更加努力找出更加有效的方法来发展农村社区

沙巴州的贫困率非常高,主要的问题是其基本设施的缺乏,公共设施的不足,这导致农村地区的生产率,竞争力以及经济发展都非常低。

沙巴民主行动党鼓励内陆区的企业家挺身而出,共同探讨和工作,以实现消除沙巴州的贫困,通过社会和经济活动和人民发展方案,提高甘榜人的生活水平和生活环境。 叶氏将会执行社区活动和农业企业项目,以协助改善甘榜人的生活。 沙巴民主行动党也敦促政府削减汽油价格,以及提供和改善内陆区的基本设施和公共设施,使内陆区能够在提高其社会经济发展,迈向进步。
