Tawau To Be Made A Free Trade Zone

March 02, 2007 22:30 PM
TAWAU, March 2 (Bernama) -- Tawau will be turned into a free trade zone in view of its strategic position for international trade.

Finance Ministry Parliamentary secretary Datuk Seri Dr Hilmi Yahya said that Tawau's location near Indonesia's border in Kalimantan and its proximity to southern Philippines made it an ideal gateway for international trade.

Speaking to reporters after visiting the Sabah Fisheries Marketing Berhad (SAFMA) jetty here, Dr Hilmi said that as Sabah did not have a free trade zone as yet, it was hoped that the Tawau free trade zone would further boost business activities in the state.

The free trade zone in Tawau would be set up as soon as possible, he said, adding that this was important before other countries set up their own nearby.

Latest Tawau Development

Kota Kinabalu: An ambitious project with a price tag of RM1.5 billion to develop Kampung Titingan into Bandar Baru Titingan will see the notorious Tawau hotbed for social ills transformed into one of Sabah's tourism destinations.

Industrial Development Minister Datuk Ewon Ebin said the problems at the squatter area have reached critical level that is not only burdening the locals staying there but has had an impact on security aspects.

Among the problems, he said, were health-related issues, drugs, crime, smuggling activities and illegal immigrants.

"The area has become a major cause for worry among leaders in the locality and also at State level because of its influence and negative impact on the entire Tawau population," he said, after witnessing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing between Sedco and Akar Budi Tuah Sdn Bhd, here, Wednesday.

He said the Government had attempted to resolve the perennial problems there numerous times in the past but to no avail due to the problems' complexity.

However, with the signing of the MoU, he said they hope to settle the problems once and for all through an integrated and holistic development project.

The Bandar Baru Titingan would be built on a 326-acre site where the present Kampung Titingan is located.

Ewon said the project would not only focus on commercial needs but other aspects such as administration, education, research and socio-economy.

"In fact, the project would also provide comfortable areas for recreational activities for the residents, Tawau community and tourists," he said.

He said the construction of the Bandar Baru Titingan would include:

- Tawau administration centre

- Integrated biotechnology and medical centre

- Hadhari and Islamic studies centre

- Trade and commercial centre

- Housing

- Luxury condominiums (second housing programme)

- Sports academy and recreation centre

- Five star hotel and budget hotel

- Marina and water resort

- Seafront food centre and cultural village

Akar Budi Tuah Sdn Bhd mooted the proposal and subsequently started efforts to develop Kampung Titingan in 2005.

Ewon said the State Government fully supports the implementation of the project based on several factors.

"Firstly, the project has the potential to resolve the critical issues the Government is facing at the village, particularly to do with health arising from river pollution, haphazard drainage, fire outbreak threat, social ills like drugs, smuggling, illegal immigrants and gangsterism," he said.

Secondly, he said, the holistic and integrated development would eventually help eradicate squatters there.

He said the third factor is that the project has the potential to contribute towards enhancing the State Government's income through the local authority's collection of land premium, assessment and trading licence fees.

"The hotels and tourism centre would provide employment and business opportunities for the youths and people in Tawau," he said.

The fourth factor, Ewon said, is that the project would give a positive impact on the perception of the rakyat and the people in the locality of the Government's concern.

Fifthly, he said the smart partnership between bumiputera and non-bumiputera entrepreneurs together with government agencies like Sedco would help to achieve the "towering bumiputera" concept expounded in the New Economic Policy (NEP).

Sixthly, he said the project would not burden the Government because it would be developed through an integrated system.

According to him, several investors have shown keen interest to invest in the project.

He said the project has its own attraction being in a strategic location near the border.

"This is further strengthened by the Government's plan to turn Tawau as a Tax Free Zone," he said.

In addition, Ewon said there are also economic attractions, namely, oil palm, cocoa, timber, birds' nests, Danum Research and Biodiversity Centre, Palm Oil Industrial Cluster (POIC), Pulau Sipadan and diversity in cultures.

On other developments, he said Akar Budi Tuah has proposed to the Government that the Bandar Baru Titingan project be acknowledged as a project under the Sabah Development Corridor.

Also present were Assistant Minister of Industrial Development Jainab Ahmad, Rural Development Assistant Minister Datuk Tawfiq Abu Bakar Titingan, Sedco Deputy Chairman Datuk Liew Teck Chan, Sedco Group General Manager Maisuri Besri, Akar Budi Tuah Managing Director Dr Ismail Idris and Akar Budi Tuah Technical Director Datuk Jimmy Pang.

TAWAU: Residents of Tawau and the surrounding districts will no longer have to travel to Kota Kinabalu and other cities in the region to shop once the border town's first modern shopping complex is ready by December 2006.

Aptly named Eastern Plaza, the nine-storey, fully air conditioned complex is developed by Sabah Urban Development Corporation (SUDC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of SEDCO. The plaza would be fully air-conditioned with a total of 146,520 square feet of retail space and 44,420 square feet of space for anchor tenants on its first three floors. It will be the most modem shopping complex in Sabah.

Construction of the project will start in the first quarter of next year. The construction of the plaza is expected to commence early next year. The building plan was approved recently and this will enable SUDC to speed up the project.

Its managing director, Hj Abu Bakar M. Yahya, said the plaza and hotel are the vital components of the Kuhara Point mixed development which includes the 182-unit Kuhara Court condominiums.

Towering over the complex will be an 18-storey business hotel. It will have 171 standard rooms, seven superior rooms and two executive suites.

It will also have the largest banquet hall in Tawau covering an area of 23,138 square feet that could easily accommodate 100 tables for special occasions.

The new shopping complex will offer 146,520 square feet of net retail area.

The lower ground floor, ground floor and the first floor will have anchor tenants such as departmental stores and supermarkets.

Located at Mile 1, Kuhara Road, the complex offers strategic location to retailers for it lies within the most-developed belt of the town. It also has a dual access to both the Kuhara and Apas Roads.

The complex will provide covered car parking facilities for 650 passenger cars in addition to 49 surface bays.

The multi-million ringgit Eastern Plaza and business hotel are components of an integrated development undertaken by SUDC known as the Kuhara Point that includes Tawau's first high-rise condominiums.

Although Tawau has made tremendous progress in agriculture, aquaculture and tourism, it admittedly lacks quality retail outlets and hotel accommodation although it is the second most important town in Sabah after the State capital. The shopping centre will fill that void.

Some 70 percent of the sale able area has already been booked. Notable tenants include KFC, Body Shop, Bata and Quamg Ming Bookstore, while McDonald's and Sugar Bun have also expressed keen interest to lease suitable areas, he said.

Eastern Plaza will have 49 surface parking and 476 covered parking bays to cater for its patrons. It also has plans to build an additional floor for car parks, if the need arises.

SUDC has also decided to add me more floor to Eastern Plaza that will house family amusement and entertainment centres and other recreational facilities.

Tawau has a great potential or rapid economic growth particularly in agriculture, forestry, aquaculture and tourism.

As the East Asean Growth Area comprising Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines (BIMP-EAGA) steady progresses, Tawau is emerging as the centre of these economic activities.

Cross-border trading, new investments and tourism from neighbouring Kalimantan and Sulawesi have given added strength to the local economy.
