SHOCKING ASIA, SABAH REMAIN POOR STATE






KOTA KINABALU: “Even with political stability and conducive economic environment, Sabah cannot attract more home and foreign investors as long as the chocking Cabotage Policy is still in place and enforced” says Lahirul Latigu, Ketua Pemuda PAS Sabah responding to the closing speech by Datuk Musa Haji Aman, the Chief Minister of Sabah at the Dewan Undangan Negeri Sabah on the 20th June 2013.

This is the reality to the economic dampening policy imposed on Sabah by the Central government for the last 30 years.  Calls were made by individuals, NGOs and local business organizations, unfortunately until to date it has fell on the Central government deaf ears.  So much for the good relationship that Sabah has with the Central government claimed by no other than the Chief Minister himself.

Responding to the recent state budget 2013 which the Chief Minister claimed as the biggest in the history of Sabah, Lahirul explained that this claim was made by a person who does not understand basic economics.  For the last 30 years the ringgit has fell in terms of value. 

The RM4 billion today is perhaps only half of the value in 1980, the public can see for themselves how much a RM100 can buy today compared to 1980 which means Sabah has bigger budget in 1980 compared to today.  For a successful businessman, the Chief Minister is claiming nonsense.

It is very sad for Sabah to have a Chief Minister and a Finance Minister who cannot differentiate between obligation of the Federal government to provide for Capitation Grants as in Article 112d of the Federal Constitution and the income stream to improve the welfare of the people in Sabah. 

The Chief Minister can claim whatever he like, the fact remains that the World Bank Report says Sabah has the highest poor people in Malaysia. 

Capitation grants is given to Sabah based on the number of population, The population is based on the last census, yet the census did not include the number of immigrants in Sabah who is right now enjoying the facilities meant for Sabahans. 

Even right now this issue is being discussed by the Royal Commission of Inquiry on immigrants.  Has the Chief Minister overlooked these important issues?

It appears that the Chief Minister’s oversight is not only restricted to the use of facilities for Sabahans but also include other income generating issue for the benefit of the rakyat.

The income figures that the Chief Minister derived from Federal Agencies in Sabah is misleading.  The figures from the IRB for example did not take into account taxes payable by large plantation in Sabah, these figures also did not include import tax on petroleum products to Sabah and export tax of crude petroleum from Sabah. 

These are income for Sabah, the question is where are these income?

As one of the plaintiff to sue PETRONAS as well as the State Government, Lahirul says “As the Chief Minister of Sabah, Datuk Musa Haji Aman is fully aware of Schedule 9 of the Federal Constitution that Land is a State Matter. 

The PETRONAS signed on June 14, 1976 is right now under dispute.  Part of the dispute arises from the fact that the Federal government in 1975 gave away land belonging to Sabah to PETRONAS. Therefore we would like to ask the Chief Minister, who gave Tun Razak the right to give Sabah land to PETRONAS in 1975?”

Lahirul asserts that it is one thing to have friendly relationship with the Federal government, it is another thing when things that should accrue to the state government is compromises. 

As the Chief Minister of Sabah, Datuk Musa Aman must be aware that any discussion between the Sabah State government and the Federal Government must be done in the spirit and letter of the Malaysia Constitution, the Sabah State Constitution and the Malaysia Agreement 1963.

Discussion cannot be initiated and decided solely based on friendly relationship between the state government and the Federal government.  The fact that Musa Haji Aman is also an active UMNO member many things can be compromised. 

Just because we are friendly, do we give up the rights of Sabah as protected by the Malaysia Constitution, the Sabah Constitution and the Malaysia Agreement 1963?  As it is now the Chief Minister cannot blame the rakyat thinking that this is the price that Datuk Musa has to pay to remain as the Chief Minister of Sabah.

  1. Malang bagi penyokong PAS Sabah mempunyai Ketua Pemuda yang bodoh sombong. Siapa lagi ketua pemuda PAS Sabah jika bukan Lahirul Latigu yang sebelum ini pernah mencetuskan kontroversi berikutan timbul keraguan mengenai taraf kerakyatannya. Hari ini beliau tampil lagi menunjukkan kebodohan beliau dengan nada sombong mempertikaikan pencapaian cemerlang Datuk Musa Aman dalam membangunkan ekonomi negeri ini.

  2. Dalam kenyataan Lahirul melalui portal Sabahkini, beliau cuba menunjukkan kebijaksanaan beliau dalam selok belok ekonomi dengan membuat perbandingan nilai mata wang hari ini dengan 30 tahun yang lalu. Menurut Lahirul, pengumuman bajet tertinggi kerajaan Sabah adalah dibuat oleh orang yang tidak tahu asas ekonomi??

    ReplyDelete
  3. Entah dimana silapnya Datuk Musa Aman mengumumkan bajet tertinggi Sabah, Lahirul lantas membandingkan nilai RM100 pada 30 tahun lalu lebih bernilai berbanding dengan RM100 masa kini dari segi jumlah barangan yang boleh dibeli.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Jika Lahirul menganggap bahawa bajet tertinggi negeri yang mana ianya melebihi RM4 bilion untuk tahun ini tidak bermakna dan dianggap terlalu rendah berbanding 30 tahun lalu, bagaimana pula dengan negeri-negeri lain yang mengumumkan bajet lebih rendah dari negeri Sabah??

    ReplyDelete
  5. Bagaimana dengan bajet negeri Kelantan?? Adakah Lahirul setuju jika saya katakan bahawa kelantan dan negeri-negeri lain yang mengumumkan bajet jauh lebih rendah dari Sabah adalah negeri termiskin atau negeri paling GAGAL dalam menarik pelabur??

    ReplyDelete
  6. Patutlah sehingga kini kerajaan Kelantan gagal membangunkan ekonominya walaupun telah ditadbir urus oleh kerajaan paling bersih, cekap dan amanah di dunia seperti PAS selama lebih 20 tahun. Kegagalan PAS membangunkan ekonomi di negeri jajahannya bukan kerana negeri itu kekurangan sumber, sebaliknya disebabkan oleh teori-teori sampah para pakar ekonominya seperti Lahirul Latigu.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Mana mungkin nilai RM100 kekal sama nilainya untuk tempoh 30 tahun ketika faktor peningkatan harga barangan banyak ditentukan melalui pasaran dunia. Jika asas ekonomi yang mudah seperti ini tidak terlintas langsung difikiran Lahirul, alangkah bodohnya beliau mengutuk pencapaian cemerlang Datuk Musa Aman yang berjaya mengumumkan bajet tertinggi kerajaan negeri Sabah.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Jika Lahirul cukup bijak mengurus ekonomi negeri, kenapa bukan beliau sahaja yang menjadi penasihat ekonomi bekas MB Kedah ketika Kedah masih dijajah PAS? Kenapa Lahirul tidak nasihatkan Azizan bahawa untuk membangunkan ekonomi Kedah, kerajaan tidak perlu memusnahkan alam sekitar terutamanya hutan?? Atau kenapa tidak cadangkan teori-teori ekonomi Lahirul tentang bagaimana menarik pelabur asing selain dari terus bergantung dengan hasil balak Kedah??

    ReplyDelete
  9. Sebagai nota tambahan kepada Lahirul yang lebih suka melalak berbanding dengan mengkaji pencapaian kerajaan negeri Sabah, disini saya terangkan bahawa kemampuan kerajaan negeri Sabah mengumumkan bajet terbesar dalam sejarah negeri ini membuktikan kerajaan negeri pimpinan Datuk Musa Aman sentiasa mengamalkan pengurusan berhemah dalam setiap perbelanjaan dan juga hasil negeri.

  10. Tidak seperti negeri-negeri Pakatan Rakyat yang mana jumlah bajet yang diluluskan oleh kerajaan pembangkang di Pulau Pinang tidak sampai RM1 bilion, begitu juga dengan di Selangor, jumlah bajet mereka tahun ini hanya sekitar RM1.6 bilion.

  11. Laporan Ketua Audit Negara juga mengakui bahawa Sabah sebagai salah satu negeri yang memiliki rekod terbaik dalam pengurusan kewangan serta berjaya mengekalkan Sijil Tanpa Teguran selama 12 tahun berturut-turut. Selain itu, Sabah juga berjaya mengekalkan penarafan tertinggi ‘AAA’ oleh RAM Rating Services Berhad selama 4 tahun berturut-turut kerana kedudukan fiskal negeri yang mantap dengan lebihan yang berterusan, serta mendapat persijilan ISO 9001:2008 oleh Moody International untuk pengurusan bajet negeri yang efisien dan teratur bagi tempoh 4 tahun berturut-turut.

  12. Sebagai rujukan tambahan untuk Lahirul, akaun-akaun dana disatukan untuk 2011 bagi kerajaan negeri Sabah dan Sarawak adalah yang paling tinggi dalam kalangan negeri-negeri lain, iaitu RM18.5 bilion untuk Sarawak dan RM2.66 bilion untuk Sabah. Selangor jatuh di tempat ketiga dengan RM1.94 bilion sementara Pulau Pinang pula pada tempat keempat dengan RM1.13 bilion.

  13. Sekiranya kita melihat kepada statistik pendapatan negeri untuk tahun 2011, Sarawak menduduki tempat pertama dengan RM6.6 bilion, diikuti oleh Sabah pada tempat kedua dengan RM4.4 bilion, Selangor di tempat keempat dengan RM1.6 bilion dan Pulaiu Pinang di tempat ketujuh dengan RM602 juta.

  15. Pertumbuhan tinggi pelaburan tersebut mencerminkan pelaburan besar oleh sektor swasta iaitu sebanyak RM10 bilion pada suku tahun pertama tahun 2012 yang mana ianya juga merupakan pelaburan swasta yang tertinggi di Malaysia. Jesteru, inikah yang dikatakan oleh lahirul bahawa Sabah gagal menarik pelabur???

    ReplyDelete
  16. Dalam kenyataan Lahirul, beliau turut mengulas mengenai kadar kemiskinan di Sabah dengan berpandukan laporan bank dunia yang dikeluarkan pada tahun 2010, seolah-olah tidak ada laporan terkini dari badan lain selepas itu. Jesteru, sebelum rakyat Sabah tertipu dengan pembohongan dan putar-belit Lahirul, eloklah kita lihat juga Kajian Pendapatan Isi Rumah 2012.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Menurut kajian itu, pendapatan bulanan purata isi rumah bagi negeri Sabah meningkat daripada RM3,102 pada 2009 kepada RM4,013 pada 2012. Ketua Pengarah Unit Perancang Ekonomi, Datuk Dr Rahamat Bivi Yusoff dipetik sebagai berkata, kadar kemiskinan di Sabah juga turut berkurangan daripada 19.7 peratus pada 2009 kepada 8.1 peratus tahun lalu, iaitu penurunan tertinggi kadar kemiskinan yang dicatatkan dalam negara.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Berdasarkan pencapaian kerajaan negeri Sabah diatas, yang mana tentunya tidak dimiliki oleh negeri-negeri Pakatan Rakyat, tidakkah Lahirul terasa bahawa dirinya terlalu bodoh sehingga tanpa segan silu cuba meremehkan keberkesanan, kecekapan dan kebijaksanaan Datuk Musa Aman dalam mengurus ekonomi dan kewangan negeri ini??

    ReplyDelete
  19. Teguran, kritikan serta nasihat ketua pemuda PAS Sabah ini rasanya lebih layak ditujukan kepada negeri-negeri jajahan Pakatan Rakyat, bukannya Sabah. Jika Lahirul tidak ada isu untuk diulas, tidak perlulah tunjuk sikap bodoh sombong mengulas isu yang diluar bidang kemahirannya.

  40. Sudah 10 tahun Datuk Musa Aman menerajui kerajaan BN Negeri sabah dan beliau juga telah pun menunjukkan pencapaian yang memberangsangkan untuk Sabah,

    Seperti yang kita tahu Datuk Musa telah berjaya menambah rizab negeri, memacu enjin pertumbuhan ekonomi negeri, menarik masuk pelaburan mega dan meningkatkan kompetensi syarikat-syarikat berkaitan kerajaan negeri.

  41. Pelbagai cerita yang kita dengar tetang Datuk Musa, meskipun berhadapan dengan pelbagai cabaran dan kritikan, Datuk Musa masih berjaya.

    Rakyat Sabah seharusnya berbangga yang belanjawan negeri itu telah meningkat secara konsisten setiap tahun sejak Datuk Musa mengambil alih kepimpinan BN di negeri itu. Ini menunjukan yang mana Datuk Musa bukannya pemimpin yang mementingkan diri seperti beberapa pihak katakan mengenai keburukan beliau. Dan, Belanjawan untuk 2013 ialah RM4,088 bilion.

  42. Paling besar pernah dibuat oleh kerajaan negeri Sabah. Ini menunjukkan yang terdapatnya pengurusan dana yang berhati-hati. Dengan pengendalian pengurusan kewangan negeri yang cekap, Musa telah berjaya mengumpulkan dana rizab negeri terbesar bagi mengekalkan ekonomi Sabah.

    Ini ialah pada hakikatnya yang mana kerajaan di bawah Datuk Musa mengamalkan pengurusan kewangan yang berhati-hati dan berhemat. Malah, untuk ini, Audit Negara telah mengumumkan yang Sabah adalah antara negeri dengan rekod terbaik dalam pengurusan kewangan. Sabah telah diiktiraf dengan “Clean Bill” sejak 12 tahun lepas.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Sejak sekian lama, ekonomi utama negeri itu ialah BALAK. Tetapi Datuk Musa mengambil langkah terbaik dan menyedari yang BALAK cepat pupus dan sumber negeri itu perlu dipelbagaikan. Ekonomi baru telah diperkenalkan dengan penekanan utama kepada sektor PERTANIAN, PEMBUATAN dan PELANCONGAN.

    Sabah amat bernasib baik kerana mempunyai Datuk Musa Aman yang menerajui BN Sabah. Kejayaannya juga ialah disebabkan beliau menggunakan “kuasa minda” berbanding emosi dalam melaksanakan tugasnya memajukan negeri itu. Maka setiap apa yang dibuat oleh Datuk Musa adalah hasil daripada pandangan dan perbincangan dengan ahli dan pemimpin lain. Terima Kasih Datuk Musa.

    One of the delegates, Prof. Luo Jianbin, the Director of the Center at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, said that he found Sabah a very attractive place to invest in as any partnership between China and Malaysia in human capital development would have enjoyed a good head start.

    These are investments especially in SDC’s flagship projects including the Sabah Agro-Industrial Precinct (SAIP), Sandakan Education Hub, Sabah Oil and Gas Industrial Park (SOGIP), the Lahad Datu Palm Oil Industrial Cluster (POIC), Integrated Livestock Valley, Kinabalu Gold Coast Enclave and Marine Industry Cluster.

    Tax incentives will vary based on the focus areas, ranging from full tax exemption on statutory income for up to ten years, investment tax allowance of 100 per cent on qualifying capital expenditure for five years, and full exemption on import duty and sales tax exemption, subject to current policy. The period for tax incentives is for applications received by SEDIA up until 31 December 2020. The tax incentives mechanism is under the purview of the National Committee on Investments (NCI).

    ~ How Sabah fares in the nation’s economic transformation programme


    Sabah is well positioned to play a major role in th the economic transformation program, as the state is well endowed with resources to interact fully with the 12 National Key Economic Areas (NKEA) to develop a high income economy.

    The state’s NKEAs are sectors with a huge growth potential, namely, oil and gas, and energy, tourism, agriculture, palm oil, education, health, wholesale and retail, communication and infrastructure.

    The oil and gas and energy sector is a particularly vibrant sector that will propel Sabah’s economic future. The involvement of more Sabah companies in Petronas contracts and ventures has increased the state’s sense of ownership of its soil and gas resources.

    In supporting the development of oil and gas sector in the state, a training centre has been established by Petronas at the site of Sabah Oil and Gas Teminal (SOGT) in Kimanis. Other skills training to meet the needs of skilled workers in the oil and gas industry are offered by the MARA Skills Training Institute, the Industrial Training Institute in Kota Kinabalu and Papar, Pusat Giat Mara Kimanis and Yayasan Sabah College.

    The Sipitang Oil & Gas Industrial Park (SOGIP) is expected to attract investments worth RM12 billion with the potential to offer 30,000 jobs when it is fully developed. The location of this park within the Sabah, Brunei and Labuan economic triangle will become a focal point of new oil and gas investments in that region.

    Located within SOGIP, the SAMUR Project is a strategic development supporting the oil and gas industry in Sabah. The projects comprise an ammonia plant, a urea plant and a granulation plant, as well as integrated utility units and jetty facilities. The project involves the development of a new fertiliser plant with urea production capacity of 1.2 million metric tons per annum. The Samur Project Complex is expected to be ready in 2015.

    Sabah Oil and Gas Teminal is one of PETRONAS’ key projects in Sabah. The terminal will have the capacity to receive 260 kpbd (kilo barrels per day) of oil and 1,250 mmscfd (million standard cubic feet per day) of natural gas.

    The progress in the oil and gas sector gives Sabah a stong economic footing to embark on its quest for a high income economy alongside other states in line with the country’s economic transformation programme.

Lihat, perhatikan, selidik dan buat tinjauan literatur. Kita tidak perlu menyebut angka dan fakta yang sukar difahami masyarakat, takut akan mengelirukan mereka kerana apa yang digambarkan tidak menggambarkan diri mereka sendiri secara keseluruhannya terutama masyarakat belia yang bekerja gaji tidak sampai rm500, tidak akan memahami fakta pendapatan rm5000.Adalah lebih baik mencari idea bagaimana membantu mereka itu mencapai tahap pendapatan melepasi paras kemiskinan. Di sinilah peranan kerajaan menggembleng tenaga segenap kakitangannya.Berpijaklah kita di bumi nyata bahawa masih ramai masyarakat sabah berpendapatan di bawah paras kemiskinan. kebanyakan kenaikan pendapatan datangnya daripada kenaikan pendapatan golongan masyarakat berpendapatan tinggi. Contohnya seorang kontraktor mempunyai kenaikan pendapatan rm1 juta daripada rm1 juta tahun sebelumnya kepada rm2 juta tahun berikutnya juga termasuk dalam pengiraan kenaikan pendapatan secara relatif.Ada di antara mereka ini bukan anak jati sabah, atau pemastautin tetap atau datang dari negeri lain.Ini jauh berbeza dengan kenaikan pendapatan pekerja kedai runcit,yang saya tidak perlu kira kerana semua orang maklum besar mana kenaikannya malah ada yang tidak naik-naik sehingga mereka bertukar tempat kerja atau terus berhenti kerja.itulah realitinya kehidupan anak jati sabah
