SHAH ALAM - The newly appointed Selangor exco members are determined to provide the best service to the people and the state to ensure that all plans are implemented with full commitment and responsibility.

Local Government and Tourism exco Ng Suee Lim said that the appointments prove the state government's recognition of the voters who chose both Pakatan Harapan (PH) and Barisan Nasional (BN) in North Selangor.

According to him, his selection alongside the Sungai Air Tawar Assemblyman Datuk Rizam Ismail is believed to provide the best service, especially in the North Selangor region.

"The state government is focusing on the northern gateway because here lies the First Selangor Plan (RS-1) encompassing the Sabak Bernam Area Development (Sabda) project.

"Rizam and I will collaborate to enhance and expedite the development of the Sabda project throughout this five-year term," he said when contacted by Sinar today.

Suee Lim, who is also the Sekinchan Assemblyman, said that North Selangor, with a focus on agrotourism, needs to be developed to create more job opportunities and improve and organize infrastructure facilities to be on par with development in other areas.

"My team and I will use the experience we have (in Sekinchan) to work closely with Motac (Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture)," he explained.

He also added that the portfolio's focus also stresses enhancing the quality of services and delivery systems in all 12 local authorities (PBT) in the state.

He also mentioned that emphasis is given to efforts to increase revenue collection and local plan preparation in each PBT.

For the Women Empowerment and Family, Community Welfare, Economic Care exco, Anfaal Saari, the appointment is seen as a responsibility that must be shouldered, especially in continuing the excellence of former exco member, Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud.

She said that careful planning and clear direction are necessary, especially considering today's new economic and digital world challenges.

"I'm not starting from scratch because the Women Empowerment exco from Amanah (Parti Amanah Negara) has laid a solid foundation, and my focus is to look ahead for the next four or five years.

"I believe this challenge is substantial because it's a new experience, but the fundamental tasks and duties left perfectly will be continued and improved, along with coordinating efforts and framing initiatives with all government agencies," added the Taman Templer assemblyman.

Islamic Affairs, Halal Industry, Digital Infrastructure, and Science, Technology, and Innovation (STI) Funding exco Mohammad Fahmi Ngah, on the other hand, stated that the entrusted mandate will be carried out to the best of his abilities.

He mentioned that, in essence, the state government has implemented many digitisation programme, with a focus on introducing new applications for the people.

"In terms of Islamic affairs authority, many matters need to be referred first to state authorities such as the Selangor Islamic Religious Council (MAIS) and Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) because the power lies with the relevant agencies.

"For instance, issues involving whitelisting tahfiz institutions which have implemented standard operating procedures (SOP) and conditions set for all tahfiz operators to ensure the safety and lives of students are not threatened if they follow the established guidelines," he said.
