KUCHING: The government will engage the private sector in coming up with a post-Covid-19 social economic policy, said Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah.

He explained that among others, the policy is to promote food export by the state and to work out incentives for investors as well as to determine the scope of the cooperation between the government and the private sector.

“We will consult the private sector in pre-formulating this policy,” he said when visiting Thian Yien Enterprise Sdn Bhd, a local company specialising in the production of different kinds of sauces and restaurant food products.

The company exports its sauces to Asean countries and Hong Kong, and is also in the process of producing restaurant food products for sale in supermarkets.

Uggah, who is also Minister of Modernisation of Agriculture, Native Land and Regional Development, said the government would help thriving local companies to penetrate more international markets.
