KUCHING: Immediately upon arriving at the Kuching International Airport here, Prime Minister Najib Razak went on a walkabout around the Kubah Ria complex area located on the Sungai Sarawak bank here last night.

The people, who had thronged the complex were clearly excited about welcoming the country’s number one leader about 9pm. He was accompanied by Chief Minister Adenan Satem.

Members of the public took the opportunity to shake hands, and take selfies with Najib and Adenan, who later tasted the delicacies at the complex.

The complex, costing more than RM22 million, was completed in the year 2010. It houses 47 units of shops, 44 stalls selling food and drinks as well as a centralised atrium, and an open air eating area that can accommodate 500 people at any one time.

The prime minister and his entourage later left the complex at 9.45pm.

Najib is here for a three-day working visit. Tomorrow, he is scheduled to launch the programme called “Minda” (Inclusive Malaysia A Digital Nation), organised by the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia (KKMM) at the Kuching Waterfront.

He is also scheduled to officially open the beginning of construction work on the Pan Borneo Highway, involving the route from Serian roundabout to Simpang Pantu, at the site of Tebedu Driving Institute, Jalan Tangga Bypass, Serian.

He will go on several walkabouts on the following day before returning to the federal capital.
