Though being in power for less than 100 days, the Johor administration has launched several projects, according to Menteri Besar Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi.

Onn Hafiz stated that he is aware that the people have great expectations of the state government leadership, especially following Barisan Nasional’s landslide victory in the recent state election.

“Therefore, we have carried out our responsibilities to help resolve the people’s issues in the best possible way that we can,” he said at the second meeting of the First Session of the 15th Johor State Legislative Assembly at the Sultan Ismail Building, Kota Iskandar.

On the occasion of his administration’s first 100 days in office on the 3rd of July, Onn Hafiz also highlighted the state government’s many accomplishments.

“Among them are conducting road resurfacing works at the Sultanah Aminah Hospital (HSA) compound, repairing a damaged road in Kempas stretching 200 metres and carrying out drain cleaning works around Johor Bahru,” he said.

Onn Hafiz stated this in response to an oral inquiry from Selamat Takim about the state government’s accomplishments in its first 100 days in office.

Other accomplishments, according to the Menteri Besar, include reducing congestion at the immigration counters in Setia Tropika and Galleria Urban Transformation Centre, as well as waiving toll charges at the Malaysia-Singapore border in conjunction with the reopening of land routes between the two countries.

“Economic-wise, the state government has managed to attract investments worth RM1.38 billion, RM876 million, and RM130 million from GDS Holding Ltd, Insulet Corporation and Paris Baguette Singapore respectively,” said Onn Hafiz.

He went on to say that the state government would continue to develop and implement more comprehensive assistance to preserve the welfare of the people of Johor.

Meanwhile, in response to a follow-up question from Selamat about Johor’s five-year plan, he stated that the state government has specified six key thrusts in the pursuit of holistic modernisation by 2030.

Onn Hafiz said the six cores were good governance; economic development; social safety network; basic facilities and necessities; environmental safety and hygiene; and ‘Orang Muda Johor’ (youths in Johor).

“A mechanism will also be established to ensure that all the six thrusts are implemented by the direction of Johor’s development which is flexible and able to be adapted to the current situation,” he said.

Onn Hafiz stated that the Bantuan Kasih Bangsa Johor incentive has resulted in 25 out of 28 initiatives implemented by various government departments.

He stated that just three programmes, namely the Biasiswa Bangsa Johor Initiative, RM300 aid for gig workers, and support for newly married couples in Johor, had yet to be implemented.
