“We have also established other plans, especially on social and unity aspects, so that the state government could distribute economic prosperity evenly.

“For Selangor to remain competitive, we have set up several district plans as well as focusing on tourism and sustainability, such as aiming to plant over 11 million trees by 2026 and to retain 30 per cent of the forest reserves.

“Apart from that, RS-1 also outlined several actions to ensure the community could be strengthened and that no one is left behind, including the Indian community,” he said when delivering his speech during the state-level Deepavali celebration at Jalan Tengku Kelana, here last night.

RS-1 has also taken into consideration the comprehensive policies, projects and initiatives between the state and Federal governments.

Amirudin said Selangor’s efforts would not set aside the five-year planning under the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP), which is still ongoing and bringing an impact on the state.

The RS-1 comprises of four strategic themes, namely strengthening the economy, ensuring social u no m and the people’s well-being, driving environmental sustainability, and    good and effective governance.
