Government To Reconsider Satellite Launch Pad At Kudat
August 05, 2008 21:30 PM

NILAI, Aug 5 (Bernama) -- The government will reconsider the possibility of building a satellite launch pad in the country if it benefited the nation.

"The proposal to build one was made in the Eighth Malaysia Plan and identified Kudat in Sabah as the most appropriate location, " Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Dr Maximus Ongkili told reporters after visiting Inno Biologics' bio-pharmaceutical complex at Bandar Baru Nilai here Tuesday.

Inno Bio is a subsidiary company of the Finance Ministry established specially to delve into the field of biotechnology.

Through its subsidiary, Inno Biologics Sdn Bhd, it offers gene-cloning using mammalian cells, development of bio-processes and bio-pharmaceutical manufacturing.

Ongkili said the proposal for the pad had been put on hold.

"We actually have the expertise with the cooperation of international bodies to build it given the vast extent of the South China Sea. That was the opinion of international experts.

"There is no allocation under the Ninth Malaysia Plan but I propose to bring it to the Cabinet," he said

On another matter, he said, the launch of the RazakSAT, the country's second microsatellite, scheduled for launch in September in the time slot provided by United States' Space Exploration Technology (SpaceX) has been postponed as the launch station has problems with the launch pad.

"With this new development, the RazakSAT launch is now delayed two years. I will informm the Cabinet. We are still negotiating with Astronautic Technology Sdn Bhd (ATSB) for a new date in the near future. If we cannot resolve the matter we will look for a new launch site," he said.

MP: Make Kudat aviation training centre


KOTA KINABALU: Deputy Transport Minis-ter Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri wants to see Kudat become an aviation training centre and is seeking investors to make it happen.

He hopes Sabah-owned Sabah Air Sdn Bhd, which has a fleet of aircraft, will take the initiative in this matter.

“Such a venture holds tremendous potential, as there is high demand for Malaysian pilots locally and abroad,” said Abdul Rahim, who is also the MP for Kudat.

He visited the Sabah Civil Aviation Depart-ment’s office here on Thursday and was briefed on the department’s operations. — Bernama

Kudat also to have a marine base
Published on: Friday, July 17, 2009

Kota Kinabalu: The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) will build a new base in Kudat, on the northern coast early next year.

Maritime enforcement chief of the Sabah and Labuan region, Maritime First Admiral Mohd Taha Ibrahim, said with the new base the agency could intensify enforcement and monitoring in the area as well as other Malaysian maritime zones.

Currently there are bases in Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, Tawau and Labuan.

"We hope to strengthen monitoring in the country's maritime zones as well as reduce encroachments," he said.

Regarding the agency's success in preventing encroachments into the maritime zones in Sabah, Mohd Taha said their operations had gone well and as at Wednesday, 80 vessels had been detained, including foreign vessels, for various offences, including flouting immigration and customs laws.

"The agency will continue to step up its operations and enforcement seeing as Sabah is located close to the borders of Indonesia and the Philippines, which presents more chances of smuggling activities," he said.

Some 40 tourist boat operators attended the MMEA briefing on Preventive Search and Rescue (SAR) at a hotel, here, Thursday.

It was to inform them about the compulsory safety aspects at sea, common offences committed at sea and repercussions they face should they fail to adhere to the rules, in light of concerns from tourists about the safety features in the city boat service.

Mohd Taha Ibrahim said the tourists complained, among others, that some of the boat operators lack the necessary safety equipment like lifejackets, ferry passengers over the permitted limit, use non-seaworthy vessels or operate boats without valid licences.

"Sabah has many beautiful islands where foreign and local tourists will flock to (so) passenger safety is of the utmost importance.

"If an accident happens at sea, it will reflect negatively on the tourism sector and, in general, the State economy, and this will jeopardise your source of income," he said, when addressing the boat operators.

"So, as part of the maritime community, it is hoped that we can work together and minimise the loss of lives at sea."

He said apart from the SAR briefing, the first conducted by MMEA, the agency would also hold similar briefings and dialogues in other districts from time to time to discuss the problems faced by maritime workers.

Meanwhile, Sabah West Coast Tourist Boat Operators Association President Awang Butun said the briefing was an eye opener for boat operators under the association.

"It has improved our awareness on the importance of ensuring the safety of tourists," he said, adding his members operated from the jetty in Jesselton Point, ferrying passengers to and from the islands off the city from 7.30am to 5pm daily.

He said they could collectively ferry up to more than 100 passengers a day.

On another note, Mohd Taha said the MMEA seized about 80 vessels for contravening various laws including the Immigration, Customs and Fisheries Acts so far this year.

"We handled close to 100 such cases including intrusion of fishing vessels from Indonesia last year. "We also believe the intrusion of foreign fishing vessels (into Sabah) has dropped because of the amount of enforcement work put in, which has become a deterrent to illegal fishermen," he said.

Agropolitan Projects Best For Fishermen: LKIM
September 12, 2009 17:24 PM

KOTA KINABALU, Sept 12 (Bernama) -- The agropolitan project way is the best approach to bring about change in traditional fishermen communities, said Malaysian Fisheries Development Authority (LKIM) chairman, Datuk Abdul Rahim Ismail.

Citing the first agropolitant project in Pulau Banggi, Kudat as an example, Abdul Rahim said the project had offered the fishermen there secondary incomes from side projects like rubber planting, aquaculture projects and medium and small industries.

"Agropolitan projects can help villages to developm...thus for fishermen who want change but within their communities, agropolitant projects is the way to go to a better future," he told a media gathering here, last night.

He added that to eradicate poverty, the fishermen themselves need to initiate change to better their lot and not keep blaming the government.

hi

Kudat has a nice beach front located at the tip of BORNEO.

The state government should approve the construction of MAZU initiated by Tan Sri Chong whereby can bring in at least 1 million visitor to Kudat per year.

Our state government really need to look at the bigger picture rather than focus on own self-esteem, ego and personal issue.

As a Sabahan, Sabah should be more advanced than Singapore after 46 years of independent but sad to see that all our wealth miss-managed by a bunch of evils and incompetence government.
