His Royal Highness the Sultan of Pahang, Sultan Ahmad Shah opened the fifth seating of the 12th Pahang State Assembly at Wisma Sri Pahang, Kuantan yesterday. Also present at the opening ceremony were the Tengku Mahkota (Crown Prince) of Pahang, Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah; the Tengku Puan Pahang (Crown Princess), Tunku Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah Sultan Iskandar; the Tengku Muda of Pahang, Tengku Abdul Rahman Sultan Ahmad Shah and Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob. In the ceremony, the Sultan praises the government and paid tribute to the country's transformation programme initiated by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, saying it has had a positive impact on the people.
He said the programme, involving transformation in the government, economic, political and rural sectors, had brought much benefit to the people. Sultan Ahmad Shah also said that the proposed listing of Felda Global Ventures Holdings on Bursa Malaysia had brought a windfall to more than 112,000 settlers in the country, reflecting the efficiency of the government helmed by Najib in moulding Felda into a global commodities conglomerate.
His Royal Highness also said that, over the last 20 years, Pahang had continued to enjoy domestic and foreign investment amounting to RM30.27 billion, and that last year the highest investment sum of RM6.3 billion was approved.
