Agriculture could play a key role for Sabah and Sarawak to help enrich the rural people.

Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad told reporters that after a one-day state visit to Sabah on Tuesday (Sept 17), adding that both states had large land banks that could be developed for agriculture purposes.

Dr Mahathir said this when asked about some disappointment among Sabah and Sarawak that no specific goodies for the two east Malaysian states were mentioned in his Malaysia Day speech in Kuching on Monday (Sept 16) night.

The Prime Minister also said the country faced financial constraints due to its debt, adding that the Pakatan Harapan government needs to spend money wisely.
