Describe the Sarawak you want to see in 10 years.
I want to see a modern and developed Sarawak where Sarawakians are the prime decision makers (i.e) more autonomy for Sarawak in Education, Economy and in Government Administration. I hope to see Sarawak getting more royalty and in this regards, at least 15%.
