LPPB to review woeful joint -ventures
Sabah Housing & Town Development (LPPB) will review all joint venture agreements with its partners whose projects failed to get off the ground after five years or were abandoned.
Its chairman, Datuk Rubin Balang issued the stern warning in his speech during LPPB’s staff awards presentation and annual luncheon here yesterday. Rubin however added that LPPB will give the developers a grace period of three months to get things going, failing which their projects will be terminated. Meanwhile, LPPB general manager PS Wong in her speech urged the staff to show their appreciation to their employer by working harder. Quoting former US president John F Kennedy, she told them: “Ask not what LPPB can do for you, but what you can do for LPPB.”
