Last Update: 05/03/2018
KUANTAN, March 5 (Bernama) -- Nearly 2,000 Class G1 and G2 Malay contractors in the state might have to face financial problems due to their failure in securing projects.
Pahang Malay Contractors Association of Malaysia (PKMM) president Abd Ghafar Lambak said it was among the challenges faced by small contractors as the country was moving towards a developed nation status.
"This is a common phenomenon in developing countries leading towards developed countries, where most of the projects are mega-scale, so indirectly the small projects are reducing.
"In this regard, I am appealing to the state government to only offer projects in the state to contractors who register in Pahang because there are many projects currently being carried out by outside contractors," he said in his speech at the Pahang PKMM annual general meeting at BukitĀ Gambang Resort here today.
The event, launched by Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob, was also attended by PKMM president Datuk Mokhtar Samad.
