Waiting for Pekan Muhibbah
Sandakan: The development of a new town at Sungai Manila, about 20 kilometres from here, is considered a blessing by settlers of the surrounding oil palm schemes.

The town is being developed in stages and when ready, it will have shops, mosques, health clinics, police station, and other amenities.

The town, also known as Pekan Muhibbah, is located in the centre of the oil palm settlement.

Dulhamit Damili, 41, a resident of Kampung Sungai Berung, said the residents had long waited for the new town because the population had increased and the need for more amenities had grown.

The new town would spur the economic development of the area and its surrounding, situated in the Sibuga State Constituency.

"The location of the new town is strategic and we are thankful to the Government for granting our wish," he said.

"This project proves that our State Assemblyman, Datuk Seri Musa Aman, has the people at heart, said Dulhamit.

Mohd Aslan Haris, 33, a resident of the Sungai Manila settlement, said the facilities at the new town had brought comfort to the residents in the area.

Previously, residents had to go as far as Sandakan or Sibuga town to obtain supplies and do other business.

"They had to travel by illegal taxis halfway before continuing in buses or real taxis."

Construction of the mosque, a necessity for Muslim residents, is expected to be ready by early next year. The Taman Cahaya Complex, a centre for the blind, is expected to be completed by August next year.- Bernama

IJM is building a 300-room hotel in Sandakan

source:http://www.theedgedaily.com/cms/index.jsp

02-10-2007: IJM Properties sees RM25b GDV for next 20 years by Sharon Tan


PUCHONG: IJM Corporation Bhd’s property arm IJM Properties Sdn Bhd has estimated a gross development value (gdv) totalling RM25 billion stemming from mixed development projects locally that will keep the company busy for the next 20 years.

IJM’s managing director Teh Kean Ming said while its landbank now stood at 3,600 hectares in the Klang Valley, Penang, Seremban, Melaka, Johor and Sandakan, it was still on the lookout for strategic acquisitions.

“We are constanly looking out for strategic landbank and landowners to work with,” he said, adding that IJM Properties also had projects in India, Vietnam and China, and would be concentrating on these markets for the moment.

He was speaking to reporters after a media preview of is latest project at the RM300 million Laman Granview here yesterday.

Laman Granview is located at Puchong’s highest point at 450 feet above sea level and adjacent to the Air Hitam forest reserve.

Divided into southern and northern zones, the project on a 21.16ha site will have a total of 278 semi-detached and bungalow units, with each unit having a built up area of between 3,577 sq feet and 4,521 sq feet priced at RM1.04 million and above.

The development comes with a 24-hour security service with a central monitoring system and a clubhouse.

Meanwhile, Teh said IJM Properties was planning to build a 300-room hotel in Sandakan to complement its development (at Bandar Utama Sandakan) there. It is believed that the hotel investment cost would amount to about RM90 million.

“We have already built a township there and the 300-room hotel will be our first foray (in the building of a hotel) for IJM,” he said.

“We are not in the hotel business but we are building a hotel because we see a value and need to complement the development,” said Teh, stressing that the company was not about to start building a string of hotels.

Asked if IJM planned to operate the hotel, Teh said that it was keeping its options open although some parties had expressed their interest in running it.

“We have the experience to run a hotel but if there is an opportunity to realise its value, then it is only right to do so. We won’t own a hotel for the sake of owning a hotel,” he added.

IJM had owned a hotel in Sydney previously while RB Land Sdn Bhd, which is now part of IJM, owns The Holliday Villa in Subang.

A BUDGET FOR ALL

17th November, 2007

KOTA KINABALU: Datuk Seri Musa Haji Aman yesterday unveiled a comprehensive 2008 State Budget that would continue to focus on developing infrastructure, implementing rural development and poverty eradication programmes, human capital development as well as to enhance the public delivery system.

Tabling the Budget of RM2,301.15 million at the State Assembly sitting here yesterday, the Chief Minister said the Budget which aimed for balanced development, would establish a solid foundation for the Sabah Development Corridor (SDC) and continued smooth implementation of the Ninth Malaysia Plan. And Musa who is also Finance Minister said the Budget, geared towards continued stability and progress, is the largest amount to date since the BN government took over the state administration.

“This is to ensure continuous momentum of economic growth that will maintain a climate that is conducive for business and investments. “It is a Budget that will also facilitate the establishment of the highly anticipated SDC,” he said.

The SDC, he said, would be comprehensive and holistic in nature, bringing development and economic spin-offs throughout Sabah. Nonetheless, Musa said the government would continue to adopt prudent and realistic spending measures as well as exercise sound management practices to achieve the state’s targeted growth rate, expected to be six per cent next year, similar to the projected rate this year. State revenue is projected at RM2,333.19 million against estimated spending of RM2,301.15 million in 2008.

It is on the up trend and will continue to move in a positive direction as reflected by this year’s revised revenue of RM2,265.69 million against the original estimate of RM1,899.49 million.

The Chief Minister said after considering the salary revision that came into effect in July this year, the total amount spent on emoluments was RM596.41 million.

“As part of improving the delivery system, the government is of the opinion that the allocation for various ministries and departments should be increased,” he stressed.

Musa also said since the estimated revenue was almost matched by the projected expenditure, the Budget would almost be a balanced one. Among the strategies to ensure continued growth are to step up efficiency of the public service sector through sound management and prudent spending, establish the necessary infrastructure and fundamental amenities and ensuring and ensuring sound management of resources and protection of the environment.

According to him, the Budget would also focus on aggressively developing the state’s human capital to facilitate higher economic growth and to give the people ample opportunities to improve their quality of life.

Musa added that as testimony to the government’s earnestness to develop the rural areas, some RM100 million would be allocated for rural and welfare community development programmes next year.

Another RM14 million, he said, would be channeled towards MESEJ programmes while RM13 million for students in rural areas in the form of scholarships. “We are confident poverty in Sabah can be overcome through a continued approach that is realistic and strategic in nature. “This is a big and noble agenda that requires the cooperation of all at every level,” he pointed out.

On effort to strengthen the public sector, he said the government would allocate RM103 million for management and RM54.33 million for development programmes of state agencies next year.

“It is my hope that these agencies will step up their performance and emulate other state agencies that have been doing well like Yayasan Sabah, Sawit Kinabalu, Sabah Credit Corporation and Sabah Energy Corporation, among others,” he said.

And in line with the national objective, Musa said the government would also adopt programmes to encourage the development of human capital as a catalyst to socio-economic growth.

Since the development of human capital is a priority in the state development agenda, he said RM200 million has been allocated under the 9MP for establishment of the Sandakan Education Hub of which RM15 million would be given out next year.

The Chief Minister added that as it is important to produce a generation that is knowledgeable and competent, a sum of RM55.8 million has been allocated for human resource development programmes which included exposing and establishing opportunities in information communication technology (ICT) with the ultimate aim of creating a pool of skilled workers.

“As proof of the government’s concern for the welfare of women, the study on the Women Development Maste Plan that could provide the framework for women participation in state development and gender quality has been approved of which RM500,000 has been allocated,” he said. And in recognition of the contributions of the Village Security and Development Committee chairmen, the government would increase their allowance from RM100 to RM200 a month.

“This shows the significance the government places on grassroots leaders and their role in bringing progress to rural folks who are the biggest supporters of government policies and programmes,” he added.

The government is also mindful of the welfare of the less fortunate, the elderly and orphans and to this end, RM29.03 million would be channeled towards social and welfare programmes.

Under this 2008 Budget, Musa said RM839.28 million would be used for development expenditure whereby the largest allocation of RM313.22 million would be extended to the Ministry of Infrastructure Development in view of its role as catalyst of development. The next two largest recipients are the Chief Minister’s Department and Agriculture and Food Industry Ministry which are to receive RM160.71 million and RM156.53 million, respectively to fund their prrogrammes.

“The role of the BN government is to ensure continued progress and development so that the people can enjoy a better quality of life,” he said, adding that he was confident Sabah would experience rapid economic growth for many years to come with the encouraging economic prospects and the deep commitment among federal and state leaders.

“And to achieve the state’s development objectives there must be cooperation and team spirit between state and federal leaders departments and agencies,” he said matter-of-factly.

The Chief Minister also said that when fully established, the SDC would pave the way for new industries to create economic spin-offs and employment opportunities for people in urban and rural areas.

“For the Corridor to succeed, we need high level participation of both the public and private sector. Everyone must play their role in finding and developing new areas of growth while adding value to existing industries,” he said.

He also advised the people not to overspend in light of rising prices due to the high oil prices. Musa explained that it was not enough to have a healthy financial position as it was also important for the government to double its efforts to generate more revenue and explore potential areas for economic growth.

In a nutshell, he said the Budget was one for all that takes into account the needs of every segment of the people while creating a climate that is conducive to economic growth.

“We have the policies and programmes as well as the funds in placed to achieve our development goals. We must be confident in our ability to succeed and we should cooperate for the greater good of Sabah. “And, we need to steer away from acts that can jeopardise our unity which is the very foundation for development and progress,” he said.

Plans for Sabah almost ready

KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah development corridor will take off by the end of the year.

After six months of planning, the details of Sabah’s development corridor will be finalised in a meeting in Kuala Lumpur this Friday.

Speaking at the launching of the Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) 22nd congress yesterday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said he was happy that there were no obstacles in finalising the corridor’s blueprint.

It was earlier reported that Sabah's development corridor would initially focus on the east coast districts of Sandakan and Tawau.

The districts were selected as the launch pads for the proposed Sabah Agro Industrial Corridor.

Sandakan and Lahad Datu will have Palm Oil Industrial Clusters. Sandakan is set to become an education hub while Tawau will focus food processing, aquaculture industries as well as research and development.

The corridor will also focus on tourism and eco-tourism.

Later when launching the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) 18th congress, Abdullah said the Government's efforts in developing Sabah and Sarawak would be even more effective through the corridor approach.

Noting that Sabah was larger than any of the states in West Malaysia and Sarawak was bigger than the entire peninsula, he said development in both regions would take time.

With these two malls, i think Sandakan will have two distant flavour of malls, which is the SHS (tall, urban style) and the One Avenue (suburban style mall), certainly a great way to start a culture of mall shopping for Sandakanites indeed....

RM450 MILLION FOREIGN INVESTMENT SO FAR IN POIC LAHAD DATU

20th November, 2007
KOTA KINABALU: Foreign investors have, to date, put in a total of RM450 million into the Palm Oil Industry Cluster (POIC) of Lahad Datu.

Companies from Korea and Australia have built two bio-diesel plants with a total capcity of 300,000 metric tonnes per annum in the industrial cluster.

One is already operational since last October while the other will begin operation in April next year.

Minister of Industrial Development, Datuk Ewon Ebin said investor response towards the POIC in Lahad Datu has been encouraging.

Fifteen companies have signed sale and purchase agreements with POIC Sabah Sdn Bhd to buy a total of 267.36 acres.

“The expected investment from these companies is RM1,364.99 million,” he said when responding to a question from Membakut assemblyman Mohd Ariffin Mohd Arif at the State Legislative Assembly Sitting here yesterday.

Ariffin had asked on the latest development of POICs implemented by the government.

Ewon went on to say that 25 companies are currently negotiating with POIC Sabah to acquire 386 acres that would involve investment projects worth RM1806.91 million.

“The sale and purchase agreement with at least 13 of the companies will be accomplished by next year,” he said.

The minister added that 62 other companies made enquiries on 732.24 acres of land with a capital investment of RM3,447.19 million.

Speaking on the progress of infrastructure development in the cluster, Ewon said earthworks, road construction, drainage, water supply, sewerage system and telecommunication lines for Phases I and II covering an area of 1,150 acres have been fully completed.

The power supply will be ready by the end of the year. At present the Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB) is temporarily supplying 5 megawatts of power to enable investors to build their plants and get them operational ahead of schedule.

A jetty for POIC Lahad Datu is currently under construction in Phase II and the three docks in Phase I will be completed at the end of 2007.

Two of the docks will be able to accommodate vessels with capacities of up to 20,000 dry weight ton and one for barges of 5,000 metric tonnes.

“The jetty will be able to receive vessels of up to 100,000 dry weight ton and will be ready in June of next year,” he said.

According to Ewon, the state government is planning to implement Phase III of the POIC in Lahad Datu to accommodate demands for industries that are based on bio-mass.

Meanwhile, the master plan for the development of a POIC in Sandakan from 2006 to 2010 has been prepared.

Development plans and the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) reports have already been approved by the Sandakan Municipal Council and Department of Environment.

Physical work on POIC Sandakan have started. Earthwork under Phase IA for an area of 350 acres is 60 per cent complete and will be finished by the end of the year.

Earthwork for Phase IB on an area of 650 acres are in the stages of negotiation.

The site of Phase I will be fully ready at the end of 2008 while Phase II (720 acres) are in the planning stages.

Ewon said the state government is taking measures to obtain federal funding through the mid-term review of the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP) next year for POIC Sandakan.

According to him, it would lessen the financial burden on Sawit Kinabalu which has been entrusted to spearhead the industrial cluster in Sandakan.

Re-opening teachers' training college in S'kan unlikely
Kota Kinabalu: THE Government has no plan to re-open a teachers' training college in Sandakan to cater for the proposed Education Hub to be created there, Minister in the Chief Minister's Department Datuk Haji Nasir Tun Sakaran said Wednesday.

He said the teachers' college in Tawau is capable to provide for that purpose.

Nasir was replying a supplementary question from Tungku Assemblyman Suhaili Said during the questions and answers session in the State Assembly.

He also said that previously there was a teachers' training college in Sandakan but it was later closed down and moved to Tawau.

To a question from Membakut Assemblyman Haji Mohd Ariffin Mohd Arif earlier, Nasir said the education hub that would be created on a-1,355-acre land that will make Sandakan as an Education Town will be equipped with the latest and sophisticated infrastructures and facilities of the same standard as international education institutions.

He said the hub would become the main focus for public and private education institutions as well as training centres that will produce quality and skilled human capital.

"The education hub is created with the purpose to encourage more knowledgeable and trained human capital who will not migrate to other areas but will assist in producing more like them for supporting the job market requirement, particularly in the agriculture field," he said. Nasir said several education institutions would be built within the hub area including a Smart School by Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS), Polytechnic Sandakan, Kolej Tunku Abdul Rahman (TAR) and Maktab Rendah Sains Mara (MRSM).

Saying the State Government has gazetted a piece of land for the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) to set up a training centre and so on, Nasir said a comprehensive development facilities would also be developed and equipped with social amenities like an Islamic Centre, Health Centre, Recreational Centre as well as commercial area.

He said Sandakan is suitable to be developed as an education centre for the East Coast of Sabah due to its strategic location and good communication link system.

He said it is hoped that the creation of the education hub will help to increase the number of knowledgeable and high-educated people in Sabah.
