Solving MH370 issue, road safety are main focus of Transport Minister


SEREMBAN, May 19 (Bernama) — Negeri Sembilan DAP Chairman Anthony Loke Siew Fook is surprised on his appoinment as Transport Minister in Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s Cabinet.

Loke, who is Seremban Member of Parliament and also Chennah State Assemblyman, said the appointment was a big responsibility especially to solve the issue involving the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 and also on road safety. “I would like to thank to the party leadership and also the Prime Minister for their trust in appointing me as the Minister of Transport (MOT). I know it is a big responsibility not only for land transport, not only the Road Transport Department (RTD) but also aviation, maritime, ports and so on but the ministry is very important to facilitate economic growth.”

“I also have to look into many things… many issues (such as) road safety, competitiveness of our ports and of course a major issue for the ministry which is to continue searching for MH370. I hope during my tenure, we can reach a closure of the MH370 issue. This I think is very important not only for family members but also the aviation industry.

I really hope that in the coming months or years, we can close this tragedy,” he told reporters here, today. The Prime Minister yesterday announced Loke, who is also the DAP national organising secretary, as the Minister of Transport. The Boeing 777 with 239 people aboard vanished during its journey from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014.

Efforts to find the aircraft have so far proved futile…..
