According to a report, Sabah and Sarawak have been accorded the status of regions and are no longer regarded as states within Malaysia.

This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi who is also the Minister of Rural and Regional Development.



He said that the relocation of the Indonesian capital to East Kalimantan made the Sabah and Sarawak regions more strategic, to be developed as new growth areas.

“The unity government today has a considerable legal and moral obligation towards Sabah and Sarawak.”

This was announced by Zahid who said this in his policy speech at the 2022 UMNO General Assembly, at the Kuala Lumpur World Trade Centre.

Accordingly, the Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman said that the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) needs to be implemented immediately.



“Even though there are some basic things which have been already implemented, there are still several things which form the basis of MA63 that need to be translated for implementation,” he added.

Meanwhile, Zahid said that the overflow of development in Kalimantan needs to be worked on immediately, so that Sabah and Sarawak will develop more rapidly.

“Since 1963, Sabah and Sarawak have contributed a lot to the country’s economic development, and now is the best time for us to develop both Sabah and Sarawak, in line with the development in the entire Borneo archipelago, including Kalimantan, Indonesia.”
