Bernama-SIBU: All local authorities in the state have been reminded to ensure that any economic activity carried out should not be at the expense of the environment.

State Minister of Environment and Public Health Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh said this was vital for the well-being of future generations.

“We need to reconcile economic development with environmental protection,” he said at the annual dinner of the Sibu Municipal Council Sports Club, here, Sunday night. Wong said the local authorities in the state had a very important role to play in this respect.

“With rapid development taking place, we have to always ensure our cities and towns remain clean, hygienic, beautiful and green,” he said.
