“Secondly, I will propose for the construction of a recreation centre in Sim Sim with a beautiful view of Pulau Berhala for families to spend leisure time activities together,” he added.
Apart from this, Lau said he would upgrade the markets in Elopura and Kim Fung, proposed for the construction of a technical college to produce competitive youths, create more employment opportunities to reduce the migration of youths to Peninsula Malaysia and other parts of this region.
