Tokuyama ups investment in Sarawak
Published: 2009/08/12



Japan's Tokuyama Corp, a silicon maker, will invest about 30 per cent more than planned in a Sarawak plant that will make silicon for solar power panels.

It plans to spend 65 billion yen or about RM2.36 billion, an increase from its initial investment plan of 50 billion yen (RM1.8 billion) announced last November.

The new factory will be built at the Samalaju Industrial Park in Sarawak, the company said in a statement to the Tokyo Stock Exchange and another statement to the media yesterday.

"Construction of the new factory is scheduled to commence early in 2011 and the beginning of operations is scheduled for spring 2013," it said.

The factory, sited on a 200ha site, will have an annual production capacity of 6,000 tonnes. Tokuyama plans to produce polycrystalline silicon for solar cells. Solar cells transform sunlight into electric power.

The group expects strong demand for polycrystalline silicon for solar cells in the long term although it is weak now due to the global recession.

As preparation, it will set up Tokuyama Malaysia Sdn Bhd in Sarawak this month. Tokuyama Malaysia will have about 300 people for a start, 280 of them Malaysians.

So far, Tokuyama has manufactured and sold polycrystalline silicon mainly for semiconductors and the Tokuyama Factory (Shunan City, Yamaguchi) has been its only manufacturing base.

"By mass-producing polycrystalline silicon at the two manufacturing bases of the Tokuyama Factory and the Malaysian facility, Tokuyama will maintain its presence in the industry by focusing on getting new customers in addition to retaining existing ones," it added.

It chose Sarawak because the making of polycrystalline silicon needs a lot of electricity, water, quality workers, and other resources.

Such resources are available at the Samalaju Industrial Park.

The industrial park also offers preferential tax treatment, support for acquisition of permits and licences provided by the federal and state government.

Sembilan projek SCORE dilaksana dalam RMK10
Oleh Abang Ismail Abang Su’ud
Friday, August 14th, 2009

Pembinaan jalan, bekalan air dan taman perindustrian RM1.5b, lapangan terbang baru Mukah RM900j

BINTULU: Kementerian Kewangan mengenal pasti sembilan projek di bawah Koridor Tenaga Diperbaharui Sarawak (SCORE) yang bakal dilaksanakan dalam Rancangan Malaysia Ke-sepuluh (RMK10).

Ketua Setiausaha Perbendaharaan Kementerian Kewangan, Tan Sri Dr Wan Abdul Aziz Abdullah berkata, sembilan projek itu ialah membina jalan akses ke tapak Empangan Murum Kapit, jalan akses ke tapak Empangan Baram Miri, jalan akses ke tapak Empangan Baleh Kapit, dua projek pembinaan Jalan Tunoh Kapit, jalan akses ke tapak Empangan Limbang, bekalan air Sama-laju, Taman Perindustrian Samalaju dan lapangan terbang baru Mukah.

“Pembinaan jalan termasuk bekalan air serta taman perindustrian tersebut memakan kos RM1.5 bilion, manakala pembinaan lapangan terbang Mukah pula mencecah kos RM900 juta,” ujarnya.

Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang media selepas menghadiri taklimat mengenai projek-projek SCORE yang disampaikan oleh Pengurus Besar Lembaga Kemajuan Bintulu (BDA), Mohidin Ishak di Wisma Bintulu BDA, petang semalam.

Wan Abdul Aziz berkata, lawatan beliau semalam bertujuan untuk melihat dengan lebih dekat pelaksanaan projek-projek di bawah SCORE yang telah dikenal pasti terbabit menerusi Pakej Rangsangan Ekonomi Satu dan Dua.

“(Lawatan ini) seperti mana lawatan yang dilakukan pada bulan Jun lalu di Kuching, Sri Aman dan Batang Air mengenai projek-projek di kawasan terbabit yang dimaklumkan oleh Timbalan Ketua Menteri Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Alfred Jabu Numpang,” jelasnya.

Beliau berkata, atas dasar itu Kementerian Kewangan berjanji untuk memantau dengan lebih dekat projek-projek di Bintulu dan Miri di bawah SCORE, sekali gus melihat pelaksanaan dan kemajuannya.

“Selain itu, melalui lawatan sebegini kita juga ingin mengenal pasti apa jua masalah serta halangan dalam projek tersebut yang telah disediakan peruntukan. Jika ada (masalah), ia seterusnya akan dibawa ke Kementerian Kewangan di Putrajaya untuk ditangani,” jelasnya.

“Bagaimanapun, kita berharap projek-projek yang dikenal pasti dan telah di- beri peruntukan terbabit dapat dilaksanakan dengan cepat.”

Katanya, ini untuk me- mastikan kesan aktiviti ekonomi di kawasan terbabit dapat dipertingkatkan sekali gus akan bergerak dengan lebih lancar.

Dalam perkembangan lain, selepas menghadiri taklimat mengenai perkembangan dan pelaksanaan projek SCORE selama lebih kurang dua jam, Wan Abdul Aziz dan ahli-ahli rombongan yang terdiri daripada para pegawai dari Kementerian Kewangan melawat kawasan petempatan setinggan di Tanjung Kidurong lewat petang semalam.

Sabah keen on Halal Park


KOTA KINABALU: Entrepreneurs may soon have another avenue to invest in Sabah should a proposed Halal Park near the city become a reality.

Chief Minister Datuk Musa Aman said that the Sabah government was looking at establishing the Halal Park to be sited near the Sepanggar Bay port.

“The proximity to the port will enable easier exports of products from the Halal Park, especially to nearby countries making up the East Asean Growth Area,” he said when opening the Federation of Sabah Manufacturers (FSM) office building at the Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park, near here, recently.

Earlier in his speech, Musa called on FSM to collaborate with the State Industrial Development Ministry to make the Halal Park a success.

He said FSM and the ministry could form a collaboration to identify the right training courses to efficiently and effectively manage the Halal Park.

Musa said FSM should look into opportunities in research and focus on training youths in specialised skills needed for the manufacturing sector.

Earlier, FSM president Datuk Wong Khen Thau said the federation would be setting up an Institute of Technology to complement the state government’s efforts in human resource training and development.

“In the pipeline also is an initiative to train and groom small- and medium-scale entreprises to adopt the modern approach of entrepreneurship in line with globalisation and to enhance their potential to expand and compete in the international market,” he said.

Wong said FSM would work closely with the Industrial Development Ministry to develop and promote the Halal Park in the state.

Manufacturing investments in Sarawak top RM7b
By Nancy Nais Published: 2009/08/19

ALMOST half of Malaysia's approved investments in the manufacturing sector so far this year went to Sarawak, reflecting the state's appeal among investors.

The resource-rich state received RM7.3 billion, or 46 per cent of the total. A quarter was from local companies, while the rest were from foreign firms, said International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Mustapha Mohamad.

"The approval for the first six months indicates a strong participation by foreign investors in the manufacturing sector in Sarawak, particularly in capital intensive industries such as chemical, metal and wood products," he said at the launch of Sarawak Investment and Trade Dialogue and Seminar on Manufacturing and Service Sector in Kuching yesterday.

Apart from being rich with oil, gas and timber, Sarawak is also expected to have large hydro power plants, thanks to its rivers.

The biggest is the 2,400- megawatt Bakun station that is being built now.

Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr George Chan in his opening address said despite the global uncertainty, the state's economy managed to record 5 per cent growth last year.

"Our state economic growth rate is above the national growth of 4.6 per cent, and the growth in our manufacturing sector remained strong at 5.3 per cent," Chan said.

Chan strongly believe that Sarawak will remain as an attractive destination given the conducive environment, positive socio-economic growth and stable political scenario.

On the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (Score) development, Chan said the state government had earmarked 10 priority industries that include aluminum, steel and agriculture.

Chan said Score could provide a platform and synergy for the development of more small and medium enterprises (SMEs) by opening up various opportunities for expansion and development.

"In Sarawak, we would like to see the SMEs become important, supporting industries in major manufacturing clusters. The SMEs are strongly encouraged to establish links with large industries as suppliers of products and services," he added.

NREB’s environ database system first in region
By Zora Chan Saturday, August 22nd, 2009

KUCHING: The Natural Resources and Environment Board (NREB) yesterday launched its GeoEnviron Database System (GE) — the first and only inter-agency common environmental database management in Southeast Asia.

Environment and Public Health Minister Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh, who officiated at the launching, said GE would definitely boost environmental protection and management, which formed an important part of the state’s development agenda.

“The GE will be an effective planning tool for the state regional development corridor, Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (Score), to ensure that the development will conform to local and international requirements,” he said.

Wong, who is also Second Finance Minister, said among others, the system is able to model environmental performance by taking into consideration past, current and future development activities, to project or predict future environmental conditions.

“Having this information, the state government will be able to plan development activities to avoid serious environmental degradation and opt for the best development scheme for better environmental management performance,” he said.

Wong explained that GE allowed environmental data to be acquired immediately as the system is always online and, therefore, there would be no hiccups in data flow between agencies.

NREB controller Dr Penguang Manggil added the system was server-based, allowing different user agencies to be connected to a centralised data bank with the board as the ‘host’ or ‘lead’ agency.

“As a Relational Database Management System, it is currently linked to 13 state agencies and the federal Department of Environment,” said Penguang.

He said GE could be used to interpret and analyse a wide range of environmental data such as recipient and ambient environmental quality like water quality, water intake points, soil borehole and air quality for rivers and water catchment areas; pollution sources like landfills, industries, food outlets, livestock, sewage treatment plants and plantations; as well as environmental approval and case management including environmental impact assessment, open burning applications, complaints and enforcement.

He said it could also generate environmental status or performance and hence be used as a very useful decision-making tool for holistic environmental planning and management approaches.

“This system, when fully integrated with the Geospatial database, is capable of direct communication with the Geographic Information System (GIS) application,” said Penguang.

He added that GE had been running for about a year and since then, had made progress in capacity building of users, data updating, case management and reporting.

He thanked the state government for approving RM1.8 million to kick-start the implementation of the system statewide over a period of two years — from the middle of last year to the middle of next year.

“The GE, being the first and only inter-agency common environmental database management system in Malaysia as well as in SEA, is a major step forward in enhancing our environmental database, in line with the modernisation and globalisation processes and the advancement in ICT,” he said.

Tg Manis hub to produce RM5b of halal products yearly
By Jack Wong


[email protected]

KUCHING: The halal hub in Tanjung Manis in central Sarawak will be able to produce RM5bil worth of halal products a year in the next five to 10 years.

Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud said a wide range of products would be manufactured for the export markets.

“The halal hub will produce products from palm oil. We can encourage the palm oil industry to widen its product range,’’ he added when opening the Sarawak Investment and Trade dialogue and seminar yesterday.

Halal Industry Development Corp Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Jamil Bidin was reported to have said recently that the Tanjung Manis halal park had attracted some RM9bil in investments from 11 companies, of which six are Taiwanese.

These companies would venture into aquaculture, biotechnology and modern farming.

Taib said he would perform the earth-breaking ceremony for the proposed biotechnology laboratory project in the halal hub, located within the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE), later this year.

He said the state had to train a pool of knowlegeable manpower to undertake research and development activities in the hub.

Taib said the state authorities were now carrying out a manpower study to ensure there was no mismatch in manpower training and the jobs required in SCORE.

He said the setting up of energy-intensive industries, like aluminium smelters, in SCORE, would facilitiate the development of related downstream industries which the small and medium enterprises could venture into.

He said Sarawak should be able to produce another 5,000MW of electricity from hydro dams by 2020.

‘’We can add another 20,000MW from hydro and coal resources by 2030,’’ he added. Sarawak is now developing the 900MW Murum hydro dam project.

It plans to develop a dozen other hydro dams, most of them in the upper reaches of the Rejang River basin.

SCORE lonjakekonomi rakyat
MIRI 1 Sept. - Koridor Pembaharuan Tenaga Sarawak (SCORE) akan menjadi satu lonjakan besar untuk memperbaiki dan meningkatkan ekonomi rakyat dalam mencapai Wawasan 2020.

Timbalan Ketua Menteri Sarawak, Tan Sri Dr. George Chan Hong Nam berkata, tanpa pelaburan di koridor itu, Sarawak pasti sukar untuk bersaing dengan negeri-negeri lain di Semenanjung Malaysia.

''Kita perlu serius melakukan lonjakan besar ini dan koridor ini memberi jalan istimewa kepada kita," katanya menambah koridor itu juga membantu meningkatkan pendapatan rakyat melalui peluang-peluang pekerjaan yang ditawarkan.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika merasmikan Program Keperluan Latihan Tenaga Kerja untuk SCORE di Universiti Teknologi Curtin kampus Sarawak di sini baru-baru ini.

Hong Nam memberitahu, Sarawak perlu mengukuhkan sumber ekonominya dan tahap pendapatan rakyat dalam tempoh 10 tahun lagi untuk membolehkannya mencapai status negeri membangun.

Katanya, kerjasama antara industri juga cara terbaik untuk menguatkan tahap pengeluaran dan perkhidmatan sekali gus membentuk industri yang berdaya saing.

Selain itu, rakyat juga perlu mempraktikkan sekali gus menguasai kemahiran dan teknologi moden agar mereka dapat terlibat dalam industri-industri baru yang dibangunkan melalui koridor itu.

''Dengan adanya kemahiran, rakyat layak menikmati pendapatan yang lebih tinggi. Kesannya taraf kehidupan mereka akan menjadi lebih baik," jelasnya.

Tentang program tersebut, Hong Nam yang juga Pengerusi Majlis Universiti Teknologi Curtin kampus Sarawak berharap ia akan membantu kerajaan negeri melahirkan lebih ramai sumber tenaga mahir untuk keperluan koridor.

Kerajaan, katanya, menyumbang sejumlah RM3.7 juta kepada Universiti Teknologi Curtin untuk perlaksanaan program berkenaan melalui pakej Rangsangan Ekonomi.

Developing Kapit by way of SCORE: Taib
Friday, September 4th, 2009

KAPIT: Chief Minister Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud says this division is very challenging to develop but through integrated development in the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) some RM2 billion has been set aside to bring development, including roads, here.

Speaking at a gathering of about 1,000 people at Jabal An-Nur Mosque here Wednesday evening, he said that several development projects were already in the planning stages and several had in fact already taken off. Among them were the hydroelectric dams in Bakun, Murum, Baleh and maybe Pelagus in the future.

The gathering was the breaking of fast, which was participated by Muslims and non-Muslims alike here.

According to a briefing note distributed to the press during the function, some 160km access roads would be built in the division under SCORE, mainly to connect Baleh and Murum dams to the main road, apart from Tunoh and Sanggan/Nanga Merit/Kapit roads.

Tender for the proposed access road to Murum closed on Aug 17.

Taib went to say that the mid-Rejang basin had huge potential for development, but lamented that Kapit was still far behind in development all because of the difficult terrain.

“I have talked to the federal government and it agreed to develop Kapit in an integrated manner through SCORE. We cannot afford to let the people here and Belaga to (forever) migrate to bigger towns seeking greener pastures. We have to keep them here, or better still, attract other people to come here so that together we can develop this division.”

He also said that this division had huge tracts of land suitable for commercial agriculture like the planting of oil palm, and pulp and paper. This would help to generate more employment opportunities for the local people.

“There are many big companies willing to form joint ventures with the local people to develop their idle land for commercial agriculture.”

He, however, reminded the local people to get themselves ready for the many big and good things coming their way or else they would be left out while ‘outsiders’ reap the benefits.

Later at the gathering, he handed over RM50,000 government grant to the chairman of Lembaga Amanah Khairat Islam Kapit, Pemanca Badi Nuawi.

He presented cash assistance to 98 elderly people from Kpg Baru and Kpg Muhibbah Bletih. He also presented a personal donation (RM3,000) to the families of the recent boat-capsize victims.

Taib left for Kuching at 9am yesterday.

Among those present at the gathering were Minister of Land Development Dato Sri Dr James Masing, Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department (Islamic Affairs) Datuk Daud Abdul Rahman, Assistant Minister of Rural Development Datuk Ambrose Blikau, Kapit MP Alexander Nanta Linggi, Hulu Rajang MP Datuk Billy Abit Joo, head of Majlis Islam Sarawak Datu Putit Matzen, director of Jabatan Agama Islam Sarawak Datu Misnu Taha, assemblymen Liwan Lagang (Belaga), Abu Seman (Jemoreng), John Sikie Tayai (Kakus), Resident Dahim Nadot, Walikota Philimon Nuing, senior government officers and community leaders.

High SCORE for Murum
By Rintos Mail Sunday, September 6th, 2009

The dam project is the first in Sarawak and probably Malaysia that complies fully with the Social and Environment Impact Assessment (SEIA) International Standard

PROPONENTS say when fully operational, the Murum Dam in Belaga District will generate much-needed power to meet the state’s growing energy demands, especially within the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE).

They maintain the project will bring numerous direct and indirect spinoffs, among them widespread income improvement, welfare, food security and employment, all leading to a reduction in poverty.

Other benefits include improved health conditions, aquaculture, improved access to markets via roads and recreation.

Detractors, however, blame the proposed dam for destroying ecosystems, reducing aquatic biodiversity and forcing the displacement of people.

State environment advisor Datuk Dr James Dawos Mamit refutes such a claim, saying: “It’s is not true, especially in modern days, when any major development involved foreign direct investments (FDI) must comply with the Social and Environment Impact Assessment (SEIA) International Standard.

According to him, the state has set up its SEIA steering and working committee, of which he is chairman, to ensure all the requirements under the International Standard are complied with.

The SEIA is a process to identify, predict and assess the type and scale of potential biodiversity impacts, and opportunities to benefit conservation associated with any business activities or projects.

It also includes screening, scoping (public consultation), baseline studies, impact prediction and evaluation, mitigation, consideration alternatives, social and environment management plan and environment impact statement.

Dawos, who is MP for Mambong, said all these guidelines had been met.

He revealed that the Murum Dam is the first project in Sarawak and probably also Malaysia that complies fully with the SEIA.

“We are monitoring the progress of the dam and continuing to hold dialogues with the affected people to find out their needs and preferences.

“I can assure that our SEIA policy adheres to the international regulations and norms agreed to within the Equator Principals (EP),” he added.

The Equator Principals are a set of environmental and social benchmarks for global management of environmental and social issues in the financing of development projects.

The principals were developed by private banks — led by Citigroup, ABN AMRO, Barclays and WestLB — and launched in June 2003.

The banks chose to model the EP on the environmental standards of the World Bank and the social policies of the International Finance Corporation (IFC).

Several financial institutions in April 2008 had adopted the principles that have become the de facto standards for banks and investors to assess major development projects around the world.

Banks that implement the principals will not provide loans to projects where the borrower will not or is unable to comply with their respective social and environmental policies and procedures.

He said the committee had been going to the ground to see the progress of the dam and meet the people in the affected longhouses with the latest visit being last week when the committee held dialogues with the Penans from two longhouses — Long Wat and Long Malim — which are among the six affected by the dam. The others are Long Luar, Long Tanggau, Long Singu and Long Menapa.

The six longhouses have 201 doors for 207 families, and a total population of about 1,000 or about 31 per cent of the total Penan population in Belaga District.

According to Dawos, the Penans in Long Wat and Long Malim have accepted development in their area and do not mind being resettled but it must be at their preferred place.

“Even our displacement process must comply with the SEIA to resettle the affected people to places of their choice.

“Long Wat has identified an area in Tegulan for the Penans’ new home. In the meantime, we are trying to find the best alternative so that the government can deliver the necessary infrastructure and facilities to the affected population.”

Dawos said during the latest dialogues in Long Wat and Long Malim, the Penans had requested for schools, clinics, education funds, government administration facilities (especially the Agriculture Department), churches, water, electricity and compensation for their land, crops and properties.

He pointed out that presently, there wasn’t even a school in the area. And to go to school, the Penan children there have to travel to Sungai Asap, about five to six hours drive on logging road.

“We hope by building schools and bringing in other necessary infrastructure, facilities and utilities, we will be able to eradicate poverty in the area.

“We will be holding dialogues with other affected longhouses to know their requests. After meeting with every longhouse, I will submit my report to the State Cabinet for the necessary action and implementation,” he said.

The Murum dam is located in Sungai Murum, a tributary of Batang Balui, in Belega District, Kapit Division. It is formed by the confluence of Sungai Plieran and Sungai Danum, some eight km upstream of the dam site.

The Murum River catchment area at the dam site is about 2,750 sq km, extending to the border with Kalimantan, Indonesia.

The Murum dam is a 146m high roller compacted concrete (RCC) dam with a crest length of 473m, a reservoir with surface area of 245 sq km and a total storage capacity of 12,043 million cubic metres. On completion, it is anticipated to generate 900mw of electrical power.

This will be required to meet the load demands from the aluminum smelter plants and other energy-intensive industries that have shown keen interest in setting up plants in the state, particularly within SCORE.

The project is largely an effort of Sarawak Energy Berhad aimed at utilising part of the available renewable hydropower potentials of Sarawak.

UiTM Tie-Up With Foreign Varsities To Help Provide Suitable Workforce For Score
September 23, 2009 17:13 PM

KUCHING, Sept 23 (Bernama) -- Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Sarawak will team up with foreign universities, including those from Indonesia, to offer medical and integrated agriculture programmes to help provide suitable workforce for the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (Score).

Its director, Prof Madya Dr Jamil Hamali, said UiTM was expected to sign memoranda of understanding with the universities involved in Bogor and Bandung by year-end.

"In modern agriculture, UiTM will tap the (Indonesian) expertise for its Kota Samarahan campus which is equipped with a research laboratory while our top students are expected to further their studies in Indonesia various levels," he told reporters at his Hari Raya open house here on Wednesday.

He said although UiTM has a medical faculty, the number of places was limited and the cooperation with foreign universities would help give local students another opportunity to pursue the course overseas after obtaining the science diploma from UiTM.

"In a move to help the state government, UiTM Sarawak will also offer programmes to help in project implementation under Score, including pharmacy as well as chemical, civil and electrical engineering," he said.

Dr Jamil said UiTM Sarawak would build another campus on 200-hectare site in Mukah given by the state governement to provide educational opportunities for Bumiputeras in Sibu, Bintulu, Miri, Limbang and Belaga.

"The second campus in Mukah, which is situated in the Score area, currently has 300 students pursuing plantation industry course," he said.

He said UiTM Sarawak also planned to build a new campus opposite the current Kota Samarahan branch to accommodate 10,000 students by 2015.

UiTM Sarawak, which offers 23 different courses, currently has 5,000 students.

Take jobs in SCORE, graduates in Sarawak urged
Sunday, October 4th, 2009

SIBU: Environment and Public Health Minister Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh yesterday called on graduates in Sarawak to take jobs in Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE).

Speaking at the convocation of Rimbunan Hijau Academy at a leading hotel here, he said in the next five years, foreign investments in SCORE would give rise to many job opportunities.

For example, he said, the country would need up to 200,000 engineers alone to become an industrialised nation by 2020.

“In Sarawak, the economic growth and the vast job and business opportunities will come mainly from SCORE, launched last year as one of five major growth areas in the country.”

Wong, who is Second Finance Minister, said the GDP growth of the country this year had been forecasted at 1 per cent.

“In 2006, the GDP was RM25.8 billion. By 2030, it is estimated to be RM115 billion. In 2006, the job opportunities were 900,000 and in 2030, 2.5 million.”

He said since independence 52 years ago, Malaysia had made conspicuous progress in agriculture, industry, infrastructure, information technology, research and development.

“This has transformed us from being a country with an agricultural-based economy to that of a production economy (p-economy).

“We are now moving up the value chain by transforming from p-economy to knowledge economy or k-economy.” Wong added.

He said transformation to the next stage would bring about a significant change and an improvement in the quality of life of the people, but, as change was never easy, there would be challenges and issues along the way.

Wong said Malaysia’s role and destiny in the world would depend on the quality of its human resources.

Thus, he said, there was a need to redefine the education system to help the nation focus on training its human resource.

He said countries like Germany and Japan had been successful in this, and an example of their success was their production of world-renowned Mercedes Benz and Toyota vehicles.

He said a study by United Nations Conference on Trade and Development had indicated that Malaysia was the 14th most attractive destination for foreign direct investment (FDI).

“To ensure that we remain competitive, our young people must be adequately trained to meet the job market demand.

“This will not only give employers a pool of skilled and trained work force, but also ensure job opportunities for our youths,” he said.

Polytech for Betong
Wednesday October 7, 2009

BETONG (Sarawak): A polytechnic proposed to be set up here soon will enable students to acquire technical skills and knowledge for jobs in the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy.

Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Alfred Jabu said the polytechnic would offer students from Sri Aman, Betong, Saratok and Sarikei a chance to pursue higher education.

“It will also provide about 1,000 job opportunities for locals, including lecturers,” he said when launching a women’s association at Rumah Anti in Saka near here recently.

He said the polytechnic, expected to take off under the 10th Malaysia Plan on a 160ha site here, had been approved by the Government.

Jabu also commended the women’s association for making a positive impact at the site.

He said that seven similar associations had been established in the Betong area in Saka, Penurin, Suri, Tanjong, Serudit, Skrang and Entanak.

He said that government grants of RM21,000 for the seven associations and RM16,200 for Rumah Anti had been approved while the road fronting the longhouse would be repaired.

On agricultural development, Jabu said the Integrated Rural Agriculture Development project to plant rubber trees would be carried out by early next year near the longhouse.

A mat and pua kumbu weaving contest would also be held next year, he said. — Bernama

Bosnia-Herzegovina Eyes Business Potential In SCORE


KUCHING, Oct 12 (Bernama) -- Bosnia-Herzegovina is keen to tap the potential of Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) in the areas of developing and exporting the energy industry, its Ambassador to Malaysia Ensar Eminovic said on Monday.

Eminovic said Bosnia-Herzegovina has the expertise and experience in terms of human resources in the energy industry and believed it could share a common synergy to enhance the bilateral relationship.

"The war that ended in 1995 had destroyed the infrastructure in our energy sector but we still have our human resources and we believe we can start from there," he said at a media briefing on "Malaysia Global Business Forum -- Bosnia Herzegovina" here.

The forum will be held from Nov 8 to 11, 2009, at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching and former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is expected to be a keynote speaker.

SCORE is one of the five regional development corridors being developed throughout the country.

It is located within Sarawak's Central Region, stretching for 320 kilometres along the coast from Tanjung Manis to Similajau and extending into the surrounding areas and the hinterland.

Core of the corridor is the energy resources, particularly hydropower (28,000 megawatts), coal (1.46 billion tonnes), and natural gas (40.9 trillion square cubic feet) found abundantly within the Central Region with the Regional Economic Development Authority (RECODA) given the task to ensure its success.

RECODA is the body to manage and implement SCORE. Its main goal is to ensure the success of SCORE by 2030 by creating 1.5 million new jobs and achieving an average gross domestic product (GDP) per capita growth of 5.5 per cent per annum.

Eminovic said apart from energy sector, the creation of a halal hub in Tanjung Manis in Sarawak had attracted attention as Bosnia-Herzegovina wanted to set up a similar hub to capture the lucrative halal markets in the European countries.

He said that halal products have enjoyed a brisk sales in European countries not only among Muslim consumers but also non-Muslim consumers due to its strict hygenic standards.

Sarawak To Focus On Infrastructure Development


KUCHING, Oct 12 (Bernama) -- Sarawak will focus on infrastructure development, especially within the Sarawak Corridior of Renewable Energy (Score), based on 20-year expansion plan.

This follows an assurance given by the federal government to provide equitable development for the state, Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud said on Monday.

Commenting on the assurance given Datuk Seri Najib Tun Najib during the launch of the Malaysia Day celebrations in conjunction with the nation's 52nd independence anniversary here on Saturday, Taib said he was happy that the prime minister understood Sarawak's position well.

He said that Najib was always informed about what's going on in Sarawak, adding that he was "very happy" that he wanted to give attention to Sarawak.

Taib was speaking to reporters after attending a Hari Raya open house, organised by the Sarawak Federal Secretary's Office at the Kuching Federal Complex here.

He said infrastructure development would be given priority as it incurred high costs, besides covering a wide territory leading to the site of the hydro-electric dams and involved logistics, including ports at Samalaju and Tanjung Manis.

However, Taib said, the state government would push for allocation until all projects under the 10th Malaysia Plan, which starts next year, were completed as the private sector helped to provide funds, including a US$1 billion allocation.

The allocation comes from a Middle East nation for the county's development, half of which is meant for Sarawak.

Earlier, at another Hari Raya open house by the Kuching City North Hall here, Taib, who is also state Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman, congratulated Najib for the BN victory in the Bagan Pinang state by-election yesterday.

The by-election saw Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad beat Zulkefly Mohamad Omar of PAS.

SCORE to draw RM300 bln investment in next two decades: CM
By Gaing Kunding Saturday, October 17th, 2009

BALINGIAN: Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) is to attract more than RM300 billion worth of investments over a period of 20 years from now, Chief Minister Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud said yesterday.

He said as such Sarawakians, particularly those living in central Sarawak, must be wellprepared to grab the employment opportunities and economic spin-offs.

The chief minister was speaking at a Majlis Ramah Tamah Hari Raya Aidilfitri at Masjid Al-Taqwa here.

He said SCORE was now very popular not only in Sarawak and Malaysia, but all over the world, adding that people were now talking about SCORE in other countries such as United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Japan, China, the US and Europe.

“SCORE will bring in more than RM300 billion worth of investments into Sarawak, particularly into the central region of the state, stretching from Tanjung Manis in Mukah Division to Samalaju (Similajau) in Bintulu Division over the next 20 years.

He said the people should strive to send their children to institutions of higher learning and skills training institutions and centres so that they would become graduates and professionals, and also possess relevant skills to match the job demands of major companies in SCORE,” he said. Taib, who is Balingian assemblyman, pointed out that the government needed help from big companies and rich investors in charting and implementing economic and development programmes to improve the people’s income and enhance their standard of living.

He pointed to the many big projects such as commercial oil palm plantations, timber and wood-based industries, Halal Hub in Tanjung Manis, aluminium smelting plant of Press Metal Sarawak Sdn Bhd and oil and gas projects as some examples of smartpartnership between rich investors and the government to bring economic and infrastructure development and progress to the people.

The chief minister reminded the people not to oppose or reject development blindly, but consult the relevant government depart-ments and agencies to air their grouses or reservations in order to achieve an amicable solution.

“It is very important for the people not to listen to negative ideas and perceptions painted by irresponsible quarters aimed at discrediting the government so they will not become the ultimate losers, deprived of development and progress,” said Taib, referring to these irresponsible quarters as people playing ‘hatred politics’ for personal gain.

On Hari Raya Aidilfiri, Taib said Hari Raya, just like other festivals such as Gawai Dayak, Chinese New Year or Christmas, had become a national festival celebrated by Malaysians of all levels together. Mukah Resident Saudi Narani and Councillor Yaakup Arbie, who represented the people of Balingian, also spoke at the function.

Among those present at the function were State Legislative Assembly (DUN) Speaker Dato Sri Mohd Asfia Awang Nassar, Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department Datin Fatimah Abdullah, Sarawak Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) chairman Datuk Talib Zulpilip, a political secretary to the chief minister-cum-Jemoreng assemblyman Abu Seman Jahwie, Nangka assemblyman Datuk Awang Bemee Awang Ali Basah, Daro assemblyman Murni Suhaili and District Officer Mohamad Nawawi.
