Brother Tan Kee Hian then moved on to use a graphical presentation to illustrate the huge disconnect between the economic progress and poverty in Sarawak in comparison with other states.

By setting Incidence of Poverty (%) against Gross Household Monthly Income (RM) on a graph, Kee Hian showed that Sarawak lies very much above the curve, meaning that we are worse off than other states in bringing down our incidence of poverty through progressing economically. This simply means that the poor has benefited much less in Sarawak from the economic growth.
