    "Having served four years in Sarawak, the mini city tour was a fitting end to the best experience I've had. Sarawak is home to bountiful resources and I hope that the State will continue to develop its image as a much sought after destination for business events through its rich culture, adventure and nature," comments En. Ahmad Johanif.

    Datuk Abang Haji Karim, President of SCCI and member of the SCB Board of Directors comments, "We are extremely grateful for En Ahmad Johanif's support and encouragement throughout the years as a friend, associate and colleague.
