I didn't notice this until I got the World Bank report:
Imagine, Sabah, the poorest in the WORLD, the largest sea shore in
Malaysia, 10 times larger than Pahang and Trengganu combined, many
times the number of fishermen in Pahang and Trengganu, and yet
allocated only RM20 million, much less than Pahang and Trengganu.
And yet, you still belive the title of this article??????
This is not even priority, it is blatant discrimination.
From people who blatantly break international Malaysia agreement, this
is not surprising at all.

(Bernama) -- Fishermen in Sabah have always been accorded priority by
the government in its bid to uplift the status of traditional
fishermen and transform them into modern fishermen.
The Malaysian Fisheries Development Authority (LKIM) chairman, Datuk
Abdul Rahim Ismail, said LKIM had allocated RM20 million for the state
this year for infrastructural development including the construction
of new jetties and upgrading the old ones.
"Sabah is one of the states that has been accorded priority after
Pahang and Terengganu. The RM20 million is the third largest
allocation given by the federal government from its total allocation
of RM87 million nationwide.
