Hello good friends and viewers,
Friday shall see the Muslims all over the world celebrating their EID MUBARAK; after a month-long period of fasting and extensive praying sessions of repentance. Although BIMP EAGA appears dormant and inactive then, but in reality, it is a period whereby many extensive thoughts were given to make the various plans that lay ahead before us. Yes, we are going to be very very busy even before the month ends.
May I take this opportunity to wish every Muslims within the BIMP regions a joyous
SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDIL FITRI & MAAF ZAHIR BATIN. “Mudah-mudahan kita akan bertemu
lagi di bulan Ramadan, bulan yang mulia, yang akan datang”.
I would encourage all non-Muslims to visit their fellow Muslims and extend your greetings
because such visitation shall render a spirit of harmony and goodwill to foster mutual
kinship and common understanding amongst all the races of the nations.
I shall take a short leave of absence from the 17th July for my family to spend with
the rest of my 3 kids in London and elsewhere in Europe, and we will be back for more
active discussions on the 26th onwards.
Notably, let me indicate to you the movements for July ending and August:
27-31st July : AGRO working group in CORON, Philippines
01st Aug. : APEA entrepreneurial award in MIRI, Sarawak
03rd Aug. : Workshop on National Priority Infra-structure Projects, Putrajaya
05-06th Aug : Power and Energy Infrastructure cluster meeting in Brunei Darussalam
24-25th Aug : Environment cluster meeting in Brunei Darussalam
End Aug. : Special meeting on the Kumpit Registration in Sandakan.
Until then, let us wish each other a happy holiday and I hope to see you soon in Coron,
Philippines, a destination you should not missed at any costs.
With kindest regards
Datuk Roselan Johar
