Participants also shared their views on the First Sabahan Policy and the development of young Sabahan business and economic leaders to secure the state’s future prosperity.

Among issues touched were on the need for quality young leaders for the future of Sabah’s economy, protect Sabah rights, entrepreneurship, professionals (including hi-tech), assertive, innovative, sellf-reliant, visionary, focus on Sabah’s economic and business development, and to refrain from politics.

“Sabah is our state, our home. We must not be alienated to run our businesses in Sabah or Peninsular Malaysia.

“It is important, for the sake of Sabah’s economy and its future generations, that the state train more young Sabah business and economic leaders to continue the current trend of economic growth and restructuring.

“Therefore, this policy is also important to form Sabah’s Young Economic Leaders if we want to successfully implement the government’s long-term economic plan,” said Lo.
