“This however, does not preclude the initiation of new projects that are considered highly essential and critical to the general well-being of our people.

“We are committed to sustaining this goodwill, by upholding our policy of inclusion and implementing programmes and projects that will positively and directly impact on the livelihood of all our people”, he said.
