KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 9 — The government is committed to continue the Integrated River Basin Development Project (PLSB) in Sarawak River and is expected to be completed by 2025, the Dewan Rakyat was told today.

Deputy Minister of Environment and Water (KASA) Datuk Dr Ahmad Masrizal Muhammad said the RM191 million project is currently in the process of detailed design and tender process to start next year.

“This is the government’s highest commitment to address flood disaster nationwide,” he said here today.

Ahmad Masrizal also said that in the 11th Malaysia Plan, a total of 22 flood mitigation projects in Sarawak have been approved, costing RM561 million.

He said through the river conservation programme to reduce flood risk in the states, the ministry channelled an allocation of RM88.4 million specifically for Sarawak for the purpose of carrying out river conservation work in the state.

“The federal government has also allocated RM5.1 million to Sarawak for the implementation of the Economic Stimulus Project which includes upgrading and strengthening river banks, drainage systems, dredging and cleaning works including silt removal, rehabilitate river trails and other structures related to rivers and flood mitigation,” he said.

Meanwhile, as part of the country’s preparation to face floods, he said the ministry through the Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID) has implemented several approaches including online monitoring of rainfall and water levels at major rivers nationwide via the website publicinfobanjir.water.gov.my which can be accessed by all parties.

Through the National Flood Forecasting and Warning Centre, the latest flood forecast and warning data at 41 river basins nationwide will be provided, including in Kota Samarahan which is expected to be fully completed by 2025.

“Thus far, there are three river basins that are fully operational, namely, Kelantan River, Terengganu River and Pahang River,” he said.

Ahmad Masrizal also said that the preparation of the River Basin Management Plan is one of the approaches taken to reduce flood risks through non-structural methods.

“Yes, my shareholding is small. It is impossible for a person who is already down in business and trading in the night market to have a lot of money to own a large stock. Investment in the dairy industry is hundreds of millions.

“After 11 years, the value of the company has multiplied due to our hard work. Alhamdulillah, the value of the small share has become a million,” explained Azmi who is also called Boss Susu.

Although his shareholding is not large in the enterprise, Azmi however explained that his biggest success was to create jobs and business opportunities for Malaysians.

Throughout his involvement with the dairy company, Azmi explained that they have created hundreds of job and business opportunities, especially for the rural people.

“Not only as an operator or herdsman, we managed to raise many rural children in Muadzam Shah to become professional laborers. We train and educate them, ”he explained.

“Alhamdulillah, they are getting better and more committed to developing their company and place of birth. And 80% of them are Muslim Malay … my nation, and not Australia.

“I am proud to be able to talk to my children when we meet and how their father is trying to increase the income of the B40 group.

I also thank those who continue to support me and the Farm Fresh company … only Allah can repay your kindness,” he added.
