KOTA KINABALU: Assistant Minister of Youth and Sports Datuk Jahid Jahim has urged Petronas to enhance and intensify its corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme to help the hardcore poor in the state. He said Petronas, which has a well-established presence and contributed significantly to the development of Sabah since 1975, could probably complement the government’s efforts to provide housing for the poor.
“There are still hardcore poor in Sabah and I believe Petronas, through its CSR programme, can help fast-track a solution to address hardcore poverty. “We hope Petronas can seriously look into this,” he told Bernama here yesterday.
Jahid also urged Petronas to give more opportunities for locals to undergo training courses in the oil and gas industry in the state. He said he was particularly happy with the participation of Sabahans in the oil business, particularly Petronas retail (petrol) stations and its transportation services. “All those involved in Petronas retail stations are local Sabahans.
“Obviously, Petronas’ commercial presence helps provide business opportunities for the people in Sabah,” he added, elaborating on the contribution of the national oil company towards improving the quality of life of Sabahans. — Bernama
