Current Year Prospects
The severity of Covid-19 infection has been greatly reduced with high vaccination take up rate by the Malaysian public and the administration of booster vaccinations. Such health care measures have reduced the number of severe covid infection cases and allows the gradual opening up of most economic sector in Sarawak and Malaysia. Nevertheless, the number of Covid-19 infected cases has seen a drastic increased lately and both public and private sector are keeping a close watch and remain cautious in their engagement in social and economic activities to prevent further spike of serious Covid-19 infection cases.
The problems that have plagued the construction industries since 2020 remained largely unresolved, these include acute labour shortage and disruption to material supplies. General restriction on travel movement has eased but overall labour shortages has got worse with more economic sectors opening up since 3rd quarter of 2021 The sharp increase in material prices, especially metal related which many deem as temporary have not seen much sign of receding. Meantime while, general inflation has kicked in due to higher fuel prices and increased freight charges.
We continued to work on replenishing our order book but will be careful and selective in our procurement strategy to safeguard against price volatility and to manage our project execution efficiently given the circumstances and constraints mentioned.
The Group continued to work under strict compliance to Safe Operating Procedure. Going forward, work will have to be carried out in the midst of challenging circumstances.
