Clean, cheap energy an advantage that will draw investors — CM

KUCHING: Sarawak, with its large-scale hydropower plants, has a strong advantage in promoting clean and cheap source of energy to attract investments from industries worldwide.

Although many have opposed to the building of dams in the state’s pursuit of renewable energy, Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem said the government had made all the calculations and hydropower remained the best alternative for clean and cheap energy.

He added that hydropower has been proven as a sustainable engine of growth as demonstrated in developed nations such as Norway, Canada, New Zealand and Australia and other countries.

As the state aimed to become a high income economy by 2030 through the implementation of long term, comprehensive industrialisation programme in Samalaju, the ability to offer cheap and clean energy will give the state a relative advantage to attract global industries.

“Industrialisation requires a power source and Sarawak has the ability to promote cheap and clean energy that global industries are craving for.

“I believe that Sarawak is the best investment destination and we have to prove this. There are many markets that we can tap into,” Adenan said when officiating at the power purchase agreement (PPA) signing ceremony between Sarawak Energy Bhd (SEB) and Malaysian Phosphate Additives (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd (MPAS) at Hilton Hotel here yesterday.

The agreement, formalised through SEB’s wholly-owned subsidiary Syarikat Sesco Bhd, is for the supply of 150MW of power to MPAS integrated phosphate complex, the first of its kind in South East Asia.

This monumental development worth RM1.9 billion will become the latest addition to Samalaju Industrial Park in Bintulu, a further recognition of the state as an ideal destination for investors given its ability to provide renewable, secure and affordable energy as well as business friendly policies.

Signing for Sesco was SEB chief executive officer Datuk Torstein Dale Sjotveit, with the Group’s general manager for Legal, Stephanie Gae Chin, as witness. Representing MPAS was its managing director Lim Lee Wan, with its director Dato Isaac Lugun as witness.

Others present were Second Resource Planning and Environment Minister Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan, State Secretary Tan Sri Datuk Amar Mohamad Morshidi Ghani and MPAS chairman Datuk Syed Ahmad Alwee Alsree.

Content with the PPA, Adenan hoped the state would continue to attract more foreign investors.

“The main driver of investment will come from the private sector. They are better in business than the public sector. MPAS for instance is generating about RM1.9 billion in investment through its first integrated phosphate complex. The plant, scheduled to be operational in 2018, is expected to generate some 1,200 direct employment and provide bigger impact through its various downstream industries,” he continued.

Meanwhile in his speech, Sjotveit said the completion of this project would see Samalaju Industrial Park becoming the largest chemicals-phosphate hub in the country. The giant project, with a plant production capacity of 500,000 tonnes of phosphorus a year and power demand of 150mw, is more than the entire output of Batang Ai Hydroelectric Plant.

“A ready supply of affordable electricity is essential to keep the state attractive and competitive to foreign and local investors for industrial development made available by SCORE (Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy). SCORE is attracting more companies and industries to Sarawak, bringing financial investments and creating job opportunities with substantial spill-over benefits for the state’s economy and local community,” he added.

With the full commissioning of the Murum Hydroelectric Plant last June, the new hydropower station will increase the state’s ratio of clean, renewable and sustainable energy mix.

Sjotveit disclosed that 70 per cent of the state’s current energy mix is renewable, affordable and abundant hydropower, progressing towards a balanced generation mix of 60 per cent hydro, 20 per cent coal and 20 per cent gas to avoid over-reliance on a single source.

Federal development expenditure lays emphasis on Sarawak’s people-centric programmes, projects
February 6, 2016, Saturday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2016/02...mmes-projects/

KUCHING: Despite the recent cuts in the budget allocation for 2016, the federal development expenditure continues to emphasise on projects and programmes that are rakyat-centric, and development spending for Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) creates economic multiplier for key sectors of the economy and enhances Malaysia’s growth potential.

AmResearch Sdn Bhd (AmResearch) noted that SCORE is firmly established as one of Malaysia’s five economic corridors.

A slew of projects are in place to accentuate infrastructure development and investment in a prelude to socio-economic growth which is a catalyst for SCORE.

For the past five years, the progress and focus of SCORE has been on Samalaju Industrial Park (SIP).

The other nodes which are implemented concurrently with SIP in terms of infrastructure include Tanjung Manis, Mukah Smart City and Baram.

For Tunoh, Samarahan and other secondary growth nodes in the hinterland areas are now in advance stages of planning under the SCORE Hinderland Study, which awaits approval for funding.

Government funding is expected to account for 20 per cent of total investment while the remaining 80 per cent is private sector initiative.

“For Samalaju Industrial Park, total approved investments amounted to RM25.19 billion. SCORE promotes 10 priority industries within Sarawak, namely aluminium, glass, oil-based, steel, palm oil, fishing and aquaculture, livestock, timber-based, marine engineering; and tourism.

“In tandem with the economic development in SCORE, job opportunities within Sarawak are expected to grow, adding 667,238 new jobs in the next 15 years. Total workforce in Sarawak is likely to grow further to 1,088,026 persons by 2030,” explained Amresearch.

“We gather that the state economy advanced by 4.3 per cent in 2014, contributing 10.1 per cent to Malaysia’s total GDP value. At large, development spending for the state creates economic multiplier for key sectors of the economy and enhances Malaysia’s growth potential.

“Despite the recent cuts in the budget allocation for 2016, the federal development expenditure continues to emphasise on projects and programmes that are rakyat-centric, with high multiplier effect and low import content. That said, the government had ensured that physical projects will remain a priority, which includes the implementation of major projects such as the Pan-Borneo Highway,” it added.

Based on the Budget 2016 announcement last year, Sarawak Pan-Borneo Highway spanning 1,090km is expected to be completed in 2021 with an estimated cost of RM16.1 billion.

The research house gathered that for Phase 1 of Sarawak Pan-Borneo Highway, there will be 10 major Works Package Contracts (WPCs) that will be rolled out by November 2016.

Each WPC varies from 60 to 90km in length, with target completion by mid-2021. JVs or consortiums must be Sarawak-led, with a minimum 70 per cent Sarawak equity. Meanwhile, the federal government has yet to decide on the management for Phase 2.

PM launches Sabah and Sarawak Biomass Industry Devt Plan
February 26, 2016, Friday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2016/02...#ixzz41kJBCU3S

Quote:
PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak yesterday launched the Sabah and Sarawak Biomass Industry Development Plan, which he described as a major milestone in Malaysia’s bid to become South East Asia’s premier biomass processing hub.

“In order to be a contender as the premier biomass processing hub in South East Asia, Sabah and Sarawak would have to play an instrumental role,” he said, pointing out that combined, the two states account for more than 50 per cent of biomass resources in Malaysia.

“If we could convert these biomass resources to higher value products such as biofuels and biochemicals, it can create a pathway for further downstream processing into products such as bioplastics,” he said at the launch of the plan here.

-----

“Both state governments are adopting a progressive vision and taking concrete measures to maximise their biomass potential, so that industry can co-develop a competitive regional biomass value chain and eco-system,” he said.

Najib said the Sabah and Sarawak state governments and Agensi Inovasi Malaysia (AIM) would establish a local task force to implement their respective biomass action plan.

-----

For Sarawak, he said, the biomass industry developmentcould generate an additional RM4.8 billion in GNI, create 30,000 new jobs and RM18 billion in investment opportunities for the state throughout the value chain, utilising around six million dry tonnes of its biomass resources.

The key biomass clusters in Sarawak would be Bintulu, Miri, Tanjung Manis and Kuching, he said.

Najib said the development of the biomass industry could help the country reduce the reliance on fossil fuels and increase its ability to weather global economic uncertainties while contributing positively towards Malaysia’s march to become a high-income nation by 2020.
------
Meanwhile Adenan, in his speech read by Len Talif, said Sarawak would integrate biomass as a new promoted industry under the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) guided by a detailed roadmap and an action plan.

“Sarawak can host 10 biofuel or biochemical plants in various stages of development, mobilising six out of the 19 million dry tonnes of biomass in Bintulu, Miri, Tanjung Manis and Kuching in the next 10 to 15 years,” he said.

Samalaju industrial park in Bintulu draws RM25.29bil investment
Monday, 20 June 2016 | MYT 12:58 PM
http://www.thestar.com.my/business/b...il-investment/

KUCHING: Samalaju Industrial Park (SIP) in Bintulu, Sarawak, the biggest single industrial park in Malaysia, has attracted and approved 16 projects with a total investment of RM25.29bil, said Sarawak State Secretary Tan Sri Mohamad Morshidi Abdul Ghani.

He said the 16 projects approved so far would create 13,302 job opportunities and in the immediate years ahead could create a significant industrial base that can generate more employment and business opportunities.

We have been successful in attracting energy-intensive industries to establish their operations in SIP, one of the five growth nodes in the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) development plan to accelerate the industrialisation process in the state, he the said.

Morshidi made the remarks when opening a conference on industrial by-product management and business opportunities at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) on Monday.

Morshidi said five companies have commenced operations of their plants in SIP.

He said like any other greenfield development, SIP in the initial stage focused on the provision of basic infrastructure such as access roads, water and electricity supplies as well as the services required by the industries.

To enhance transportation and logistics support in the industrial park, Samalaju Port is also undergoing its final stage of construction and will be in full operation next year, he said.

The state government is also developing an integrated waste management system, whether for disposal, recovery or reuse of wastes generated in SIP, including an international-standard waste management centre to be located in Maskat, Bintulu, he said.

Even though these wastes can become business opportunities, the government will not compromise when it comes to the environment and safety of users, he said, pointing out that the state government wants to see SIP as a place to work and to live where people can enjoy the benefits of a well-planned city.

The two-day conference which ends tomorrow is attended by industry players and experts in the waste management, cement, construction and property development sectors, and features speakers from Germany, the UK, France, Norway, Japan, South Korea, China and Malaysia. - Bernama

Siemens keen to contribute towards growth of Sarawak
July 1, 2016, Friday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2016/07...#ixzz4DAXkYB3l



Adenan is joined by Hasmi (left), Hagedorn (middle) and Prakash for a photo during their courtesy call recently.

KUCHING: Siemens Malaysia Sdn Bhd (Siemens) is keen on enhancing its contributions to the state of Sarawak.

This comes as a delegation from Siemens Malaysia Sdn Bhd paid a courtesy call on Sarawak’s Chief Minister, Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem recently.

Headed by Prakash Chandran, president and chief executive officer of Siemens Malaysia, he was joined by Thomas Hagedorn, executive vice president and head of sales, Asia Pacific for Siemens Power and Gas Division as well as Datuk Hasmi Hasnan, group managing director of Naim Group of Companies.

Naim is Siemens Malaysia’s local support and subcontractor.

The courtesy call was organised to provide an overview of Siemens’ business operations and to update the Chief Minister on Siemens Malaysia’s current business activities in Sarawak.

Part of Siemens AG, a global technology powerhouse in electrification, automation and digitalization and one of the world’s largest producers of energy-efficient, resource-saving technologies, Siemens Malaysia was established in 1908.

Its involvement in nation-building projects and initiatives such as the transfer of technology to local apprentices and engineers, assembly of driverless metro trains for one of the country’s biggest rail projects, supply of highly-efficient gas turbines for power generation and the like, already demonstrates the company’s commitment to be Malaysia’s preferred technology partner.

Following the visit, Prakash announced plans to further expand its scope of activities and investment in Sarawak.

“With the rapid growth plans that Sarawak had set for itself in the coming years, the demand in reliable and efficient power and energy will increase manifold.

“Sarawak has huge potential and Siemens is well-positioned to be its preferred technology partner.

“Having already established a market share in power transmission and distribution in Sarawak, we are keen to focus on gas-based power generation opportunities, addressing the specific needs of the state with our comprehensive range of gas turbine technologies, designed for efficiency and reliability.

“Together with the Sarawak government, we can make real what matters to the local communities. We are positioned along the electrification value chain with strong expertise in automation and digitalisation, creating value and increasing efficiency for our customers,” Prakash explained.

Meanwhile, Hasmi said Naim would be exploring collaborative opportunities with Siemens Malaysia.

“Very importantly, such collaboration will facilitate capacity building of our people, by having the opportunity to learn from one of the world’s best in these areas,” Hasmi remarked.

In Sarawak, Siemens Malaysia is already working very closely with the state-owned utility company, Sarawak Energy Berhad and is present at numerous power sites like the Samalaju, Samajaya, Similaju, PMU Tanjung Manis, and others. Siemens’ building management solutions can also be found on the campus grounds of the University College of Technology Sarawak and process industry solutions at the CMS Cement factory.

Siemens Malaysia has also announced plans to further invest in the educational development of the local communities via STEM-related projects, integrated vocational training and enhanced employment and business opportunities.

Galore of investment prospects
July 18, 2016, Monday Marilyn Ten
http://www.theborneopost.com/2016/07...ent-prospects/



KUCHING: Sarawak will continue to enhance trade and investment ties with China, Japan, South Korea and Asean countries.

Minister of Industrial and Entrepreneur Development, Trade and Investment Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan said the state had much to offer investors, such as energy-intensive and downstream industries at Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE). For those into things halal, there is the Tanjung Manis Halal Hub for food production, pharmaceutical, health products and cosmetics, among others.

“Investors who are into high tech manufacturing, especially of electrical and electronic components for the global market, we have Sama Jaya High Tech Park,” he said before witnessing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing ceremony between the state government and Fujian Province Foreign Affairs Office, China, here yesterday.

The MoU was inked between Fujian Province Foreign Affairs Office deputy director-general Wang Tianming and Assistant Minister of Industrial Development (Investment and Promotion) Datuk Julaihi Narawi.

Awang Tengah added that other notable areas for investments in the state included downstream processing of timber and timber-based products like plywood and furniture, downstream processing and manufacturing in the oil and gas industry, petrochemical industry, shipbuilding, and producing oleochemical in the palm oil industry.

He told those present that the manufacturing sector contributed 26.7 per cent to the state’s economy in 2014.

“For the past two years, Sarawak has been the number two investment destination in Malaysia (after Johor), attracting RM11.8 billion in 2015 and RM9.6 billion in 2014.”

On the MoU, Awang Tengah, who is also Second Resource Planning and Environment Minister, said it would strengthen ties between Malaysia and China – especially Sarawak and Fujian Province – in terms of economy and trade.

“China is an important trading partner and major source of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) for Sarawak. In 2013, our export to China totalled RM8.4 billion while our imports totalled RM3.3 billion. The following year, Sarawak’s export to China totalled RM7.9 billion and imports totalled RM3.9 billion,” he said.

“Our main trading items with China include natural gas, timber and timber products, electrical components, manufactured goods, and machinery,” he said, adding he would be going to China next month to meet several investors who are keen to investing in the state’s electronic and food processing industries.

The MoU, he said, could also spur business and social activities, strengthen people-to-people exchanges between the governments and private sector of both countries, and bolster cultural and educational exchanges.

“The state government greatly values our close ties with the People’s Republic of China. The visit by the Fujian delegation shows the continued goodwill and friendship enjoyed by both parties,” he said.

“I sincerely hope this strong relationship between our governments, business communities and our people can bring all round prosperity for both countries.”

Meanwhile, Wang said Fujian Province was committed to strengthen sister relationship with Sarawak and that the timing for mutual cooperation, especially in terms of investment, was ideal.

“After more than three decades of development, we (Fujian) have accumulated abundant production capacity. By that, I mean many businesses in Fujian, both state-owned and private sector, are ready to go global,” he said.

“Of course we know that Malaysia, especially Sarawak, is a more favourable region for our people to invest.”

He also pointed out Fujian was particularly strong in industries such as petrochemical, machine building, electronic and information as well as traditional industries, such as forestry, fishery, agriculture, food processing, and furniture.

“I think our foundation for cooperation is very strong, and if our technical know-how could join hands and complemented by the natural resources and broad market, we can foresee a very bright future for a win-win situation.”

Also present at the function were Ministry of Industrial and Entrepreneur Development, Trade and Investment permanent secretary Datu Liaw Soon Eng and Fujian Province Foreign Affairs Office division director Yin Lifang.

Samalaju Resort Hotel opening marks new era for SCORE
October 19, 2016, Wednesday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2016/10...era-for-score/

KUCHING: Samalaju Properties Sdn Bhd (SPSB) – a joint-venture company between two of Sarawak’s leading private sector companies, Cahya Mata Sarawak Bhd (CMS) and Naim Holdings Bhd (Naim), together with Sarawak Government Agency the Bintulu Development Authority (BDA), yesterday celebrated the official opening of the Samalaju Resort Hotel.

Seen as a major milestone for Samalaju and for the Sarawak Corridor for Renewable Energy (SCORE), the grand opening was led by majority shareholder and the State’s largest private-sector investor in SCORE, CMS.

Officiating the on-site launch was Yang di-Pertua Negeri of Sarawak, Tun Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud and CMS group managing director, Datuk Richard Curtis.

The 23-acre hotel and resort is strategically located within the Samalaju Industrial Park and is set along the cliffs of Tanjung Similajau, with breath-taking views of both the South China Sea and the Samalaju Industrial Park.

Targeted at short-term and longer-term guests, the hotel is arguably the State’s only truly holistic business-cum-leisure resort, billed to offer guests ease of access to the business activities of the industrial park, combined with international-standard hotel business facilities and connectivity with comfort at its core, all set within a unique landscape where industry meets with nature.

Nearby tourist hot spots include the Similajau National Park, Niah National Park and Limestone Cave, which is currently under review as a Unesco World Heritage Status and the Loagan Bunut National Park.

The grand opening also included the signing of two special agreements with Samalaju Properties; the first with the Trustees of the Methodist Church in Sarawak to buy 10 acres of land for a school and a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with PMB Development Sdn Bhd, part of the Press Metal group, to enter into negotiations to consider the leasing of apartment units completed by Samalaju Properties in Samalaju Eco Park. The nature of the agreements is consistent with Samalaju Properties’ tagline – ‘building sustainable and vibrant communities.’

Speaking at the event, Curtis, said that the resort-hotel’s grand opening represents a huge milestone for Samalaju, for SCORE and for Sarawak’s greater plan to continue on its growth path that is delivering opportunities and unrivalled development for Sarawak and its people.

“Development is of course the net product of economic growth, but is also inexorably linked to other factors: the comfort and lifestyle of our people and visitors, a sustainable and environmentally-friendly outlook and a drive for success with a responsible approach and a primary consideration for the communities in which we operate,” he said in his speech.

“This is the only resort of its type in Sarawak and is indicative of the growth of SCORE, the development of the Samalaju Eco Park and the demand from the nearby Samalaju Industrial Park to accommodate the individual needs of residents, expatriates, employees, contractors, visitors, investors and others who are connected with the State’s economic development.”

The 175-room resort-hotel is equipped with all the necessary amenities for both business travellers and those looking for a comfortable getaway, including swimming pools, a gym and games room, meeting and function rooms, a coffee house, a lounge and a business centre. The hotel is also equipped to organise corporate events, training, meetings and team building exercises, making it an excellent training centre for both the private and public sectors.

Under development is the nearby Samalaju Central project, which will offer guests even greater facilities, services and entertainment. Built up over 33 hectares, Samalaju’s first commercial service centre will provide retail, commercial and industrial units to both small and medium enterprises. When finished, Samalaju Central will offer restaurants, laundromats, mini-markets, clinics, a police station, Bomba and much more, enhancing the lifestyles and facilities available to everyone in the area.

“The Samalaju Industrial Park currently stands at approximately 8,000 hectares, and with 16 approved projects and investment totalling RM25.3 billion, it continues to grow and expand, creating an increased need for facilities that meet the needs of a diverse and varied workforce. With massive plants and further development in the pipeline, there has never been a better time for the Samalaju Resort Hotel,” Curtis said.

KUCHING: The new Samalaju Industrial Port, developed at a cost of RM1.8 billion, is expected to commence operation in June this year.

Bintulu Port Holdings Bhd (BPHB) Finance and Investment committee chairman Datuk Nasarudin Md Idris said the tariffs had been decided following a discussion with the state government.

“This is a new port, it is part and parcel of Samalaju Industrial Park, which is part and parcel of the development of SCORE (Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy).

“We have discussed with the state government the tariffs because we need to look at how much we charge and how we call attract new investors to it,” he said at a press conference after BPHB’s 21st annual general meeting at Hilton Hotel here yesterday.

Nasarudin said the tariffs decided for the new port would vary from one user to another, depending on the volume and throughput.

“If you’re a bigger throughput user of the port, the tariffs are cheaper.”

Earlier, group chief executive officer of BPHB Dato Mohammad Medan Abdullah said the Samalaju Industrial Port aimed to handle over two million tonnes of bulk cargo with a total of 145 vessel calls when it came into operation in June.

“The port’s cargo throughout is projected to steadily increase from 450,019 tonnes in 2016 to over 11 million tonnes in 2019 when all the industries achieve maximum throughput.

“The port will continue to improve operational efficiency to maintain its competitive edge.”

On Bintulu Port Sdn Bhd (BPSB), Medan said all major cargo categories at this port recorded increases last year over the preceding year’s figures despite a challenging market environment.

“The overall cargo throughput handled by the group increased by 3.7 per cent from 44.81 million tonnes in 2015 to 46.45 million tonnes last year.”

He added that BPSB will continue to focus on other key growth sectors and enhance its efficiency in the handling of specific cargoes that would serve as potential income generators particularly palm oil, container, fertiliser, woodchips, palm kernel product and biomass.

He pointed out that Biport Bulkers Sdn Bhd (BBSB) registered a record throughput last year, its best performance to date.

“BBSB’s final throughput for the year 2016 was 3.65 million tonnes, the highest achievement since it commenced operations in 2004 and marginally better than the 2015 results.

“BBSB’s major customers are Wilmar which is a leading global palm oil group, and also Sarawak’s main palm oil companies namely Sime Darby, Sarawak Oil Palms and Kirana.

“They operate and use the facilities for the export of their crude and refined products. Last year, 95 per cent of palm oil products were handled via Biport Bulkers,” added Medan.

Among those present were chairman of BPHB and chief secretary to Malaysian government Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa and board of directors of BPHB including Tan Sri Datuk Amar Mohamad Morshidi Abdul Ghani who is also the State Secretary.

Abg Johari optimistic his ideas, strategic plans to transform state will become reality

Quote:
KUCHING: Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg is optimistic that his ideas and strategic plans to transform Sarawak since assuming office as Chief Minister more than one year ago will become a reality.

He said his plans are to transform Sarawak’s economy and administration to make it a high income state by 2030.

He pointed out that the main challenge now and the next 12 years is to identify what direction to take and then to implement it.

Abang Johari said he is optimistic because he has a civil service that is very responsible and capable and “they will be the people who will be responsible to implement all these ideas and the policy in micro terms”.

“I am also lucky because the civil service is with me and they understood what I meant by digital economy and to embrace this, of course, firstly there must be money and secondly, we must give someone the trust to implement it and that is most important,” he emphasised.

Abang Johari was answering questions posed by Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) host Sayeed Munawar Sayed Mohd Mustar in a special programme with the Chief Minister at RTM Sarawak’s auditorium on Tuesday night.

Saying there must be coordination between those making the policy and those implementing the policy, he did not deny that to embrace his ideas “will take time but will monitor in this one year or two years as to how far it can be and has been implemented”.

Secondly, he said there must be a response from the people, and they must understand and be together with the administration in its desire to make Sarawak a progressive state in the country.

“So we must have a creative mind and there are three things we must have — first, disruptive thinking, that is to use new ideas; secondly, to abandon the comfort zone and we must have the spirit to move faster; and thirdly, duly develop all changes.”

Abang Johari, who is also the Minister of Finance and Economic Planning and Minister for Urban Development and Natural Resources, said among his strategic plans to boost the transformation of the state are embracing digital economy, implementing high speed internet for rural and urban areas, and establishing Development Bank of Sarawak (DBOS), Petroleum Sarawak Berhad (Petros), Sarawak Pay and Light Rail Transit (LRT).

“To embrace this, and this is my second year in office, I will monitor and go down to the field to check how fast is the internet speed and how many towers need to be built, for example,” he said.

He said he had met many talented Sarawakians working outside the country who wished to come back to the state.

“I want to come back to Sarawak as there is future for me because what I learned can be applied in the new eco-system,” he said of those he met overseas and in foreign institutions of higher learning.

PETROS to bring Sarawak's oil and gas industry to greater heights
By EKHWAN HAQUE FAZLUL HAQUE - March 6, 2018 @ 10:52pm



Sarawak Chief Minister, Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Abang Openg, said with the success, Sarawak now holds full rights to the state’s natural resources, including its oil and gas industry. Pic by NSTP/NADIM BOKHARI
Quote:
KUCHING: The establishment of Petroleum Sarawak Bhd (PETROS) has been described as the state’s biggest achievement to date in its bid to reclaim its rights and privileges which were affected following the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63).

The success is also deemed to have strengthened the relationship between the federal and state governments through the negotiations which had previously taken place, especially on the restoration of state rights and devolution of power.

Sarawak Chief Minister, Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Abang Openg, said with the success, Sarawak now holds full rights to the state’s natural resources, including its oil and gas industry.

He said the prime minister (Datuk Seri Najib Razak) had agreed to return the righrts to the state government in accordance with the Federal Constitution, and that this will herald even greater prosperity for Sarawak and its people.

“The establishment of PETROS is significant in our efforts to pursue this (restoring state rights), including the devolution of power.

“To Datuk Seri Najib (Razak), thank you for your constant attention and the priority given to the needs of this state and the ‘Anak Sarawak’ (people of Sarawak), including his dedication towards finding ways to restore the rights which had been inadvertenrly eroded before,” he said.

Abang Johari, who is also Sarawak’s Economic Planning and Natural Resources Minister, was speaking at the PETROS officiation ceremony at a hotel here, tonight.

Also present were Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas and PETROS chairman, Tan Sri Hamid Bugo.

At the same event, Abang Johari also announced Bidayuh corporate figure, Saau Kakok, as PETROS chief executive.

Abang Johari expressed confidence that Saau, with his 40-year-experience in the oil and gas industry, will successfully steer PETROS to greater heights.

Abang Johari said PETROS’ establishment will also open a new chapter in Sarawak’s oil and gas industry, thus bringing a positive impact on the economy and state’s development.

“PETROS’ establishment can strengthen the state’s position as a major player in the national oil and gas industry. PETROS has also established a strategic cooperation with Petronas to ensure that the state’s petroleum industry remains successful, on top of contributing to Sarawak’s economy.

Sarawak attracts RM137.3b worth approved manufacturing projects as at Sept 2018
By NST Business - January 29, 2019 @ 8:22pm



Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) has approved a total of 1,120 manufacturing projects with investments worth RM137.3 billion in Sarawak as at September 2018.

MIDA strategic planning and development division senior executive director Zabidi Mahbar said the projects had created over 175,000 job opportunities, mainly in the natural gas, chemical and chemical products, basic metal products, petroleum products (including petrochemicals) and electronics and electrical products sectors.

“Being the largest of all 13 states in Malaysia, there are certainly many reasons for companies to base their operations in Sarawak. There is already a strong presence of MNCs and large local corporations (LLCs) in the state. These companies, such as Petronas, OCIM, Longi, X-Fab and Press Metal, hold much promise for business collaborations and opportunities,” he said during the MIDA Invest Series: Unfolding States’ Business Potential.

He said MIDA had set-up a dedicated team namely the Investment Coordination Platform (ICP) to facilitate companies to grow their businesses and investment portfolio since last year.

The unit works closely with equity and corporate advisory firms as well as local regulators and technology providers in assisting companies to conduct business-to-business matching, capital raising exercise through debt and equity, mergers and acquisitions, divestment and initial public listing, he added.

Another initiative introduced by MIDA is the i-Services Portal, which is a single market place to link investors and companies interested to source for domestic services from local service providers.

Local service providers are encouraged to register their business in the portal as it will help them to expand their markets and further boost business activities.

The Invest Series featured a briefing by Datu Liaw Soon Eng, Permanent Secretary from the Ministry of Industrial & Entrepreneur Development of Sarawak.

The event attracted over 250 participants ranging from embassies, business chambers and associations as well as industry players from the services and manufacturing sector.

CM: Oil and gas complex will boost development in Sarawak's north

Monday, 10 Jun 2019

by sharon ling
Quote:
KUCHING: A proposed integrated oil and gas complex in Lawas will help boost development in Sarawak's northern region, says Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.

The Chief Minister said the US$5bil (RM20.8bil) project by China's Beijing Beca Sci-Tech Co Ltd and Sinopec Engineering Incorporation would create jobs and spread development to the area.


"This will be a game changer for northern Sarawak, particularly Lawas and Limbang.

"About 1,000 jobs will be created in the first phase, while the peak construction period will create about 20,000 jobs," he said.

Abang Johari said this after Beca Sci-Tech and Sinopec Engineering signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the state government here on Monday (June 10).

The proposed project will produce petrochemical products for industrial customers in China and South-East Asia. Production is targeted to begin in 2022.

Abang Johari said the Chinese investors chose Lawas because of its strategic location, availability of land and environmental stability.

He said the state government would assist them by providing supporting facilities, including the development of a port at the project site in Pulau Sari.
