KUCHING (April 29): The Land and Survey Department Sarawak welcomes Awang Zamhari Awang Mahmood as its new director, replacing Datu Abdullah Julaihi who will become permanent secretary of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Urban Development.

Abdullah has been holding the post since Sept 3, 2019, with Awang Zamhari being the department’s deputy director.

In his remarks, Awang Zamhari said Abdullah had been in the department since June 7, 1993, starting as an administrative officer in Limbang.

“It is recognition of his leadership qualities and because of the Sarawak government’s trust in him, he is being tasked with bigger responsibilities.”
