and there's FACT that we should have ALL our NATURAL RESERVES money then distribute small percent to the Federal.... see this point 11 from 20points Sabah joins Malaysia

Point 11: Tariffs and Finance
Borneo (Sarawak & Sabah) should retain control of its own finance, development and tariff, and should have the right to work up its own taxation and to raise loans on its own credit.

apart from being DUMB & DUMBERER by the government, you should read and review the 20 Points of Agreement Sabah join Malaysia and that also include Sarawak which have 18 Points of Agreement...

and from wikipedia, the FACTS of United Kingdom

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland[nb 5] (commonly known as the United Kingdom, the UK or Britain) is a sovereign state located off the north-western coast of continental Europe.The country includes the island of Great Britain, the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland and many smaller islands. Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK that shares a land border with another sovereign state—the Republic of Ireland.[/COLOR]

The United Kingdom is a unitary state governed under a constitutional monarchy and a parliamentary system, with its seat of government in the capital city of London. It is a country in its own right[10][11] and consists of four countries: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.[12] There are three devolved national administrations, each with varying powers,[13][14] based in Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh, the capitals of Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland respectively. Associated with the UK, but not constitutionally part of it, are three Crown Dependencies.[15] The United Kingdom has fourteen overseas territories.[16] These are remnants of the British Empire which, at its height in 1922, encompassed almost a quarter of the world's land surface and was the largest empire in history. British influence can still be observed in the language, culture and legal systems of many of its former territories

and then you will realise that all this time why you'll being ask for your Passport when you or all your friends and people from Malaya when enters Sabah or Sarawak...

yes, indeed. Sabah and Sarawak should have control over many things which shouldnt be control by federal government like now. The 20 Points of Agreement Sabah should be 23 points indeed. However, after the Double Six Tragedy, all the representative in sabah died and the immediate new CM signed and agreed with 5% of petroleum instead of 30% and above.

then, the new CM invited UMNO to "invade" Sabah and within very short period, illegal immigrant population increased treamandously and outnumber the local people...and Sabahan has lost their privillege since the invasion of UMNO...

supposingly, Sabah & Sarawak are 2 countries who joint malaya to form malaysia, both are not a "state" of malaysia...

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah has attracted RM10.2bil in investments in the first quarter of 2012, said Industrial Development Minister, Datuk Raymond Tan Shu Kiah.

He said on Monday that of the amount, RM5.3bil came from services sector, RM4.8bil from manufacturing and RM170mil from other sectors.

Tan said of the investment in the services sector, RM370mil involved domestic investments in the housing and hotel sectors.

Chia wanted to know the types of investments and the companies involved and to seek more details on the recent state government's statement that the state has received RM10 billion in foreign investments.

Tan said for the manufacturing sector, domestic investments accounted for RM4.6bil and foreign investments RM175mil.

"The sectors included chemicals, iron, transport and food," he said.

Sabah’s investments total RM23.9 billion since start of 10MP
Posted on July 18, 2012, Wednesday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2012/07...start-of-10mp/

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah has received investments of RM23.9 billion since the start of the 10th Malaysia Plan last year and until the first quarter of 2012.

Sabah Minister of Industrial Development Datuk Raymond Tan Shu Kiah said data from the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (Mida) showed that of this amount, RM12.4 billion or 53 per cent was domestic investments, and the remaining RM11.4 billion from overseas.

“The investments provided 14,674 job opportunities,” he added.

He said this in reply to a question from Samsudin Yahya (UMNO-Sekong) in the Sabah State Assembly here today. Tan said for the state, six National Key Economic Areas (NKEA) had been identified, namely, tourism, oil and gas, oil palm, manufacturing and logistics, agriculture and education.

He said apart from this, there were 31 Entry Point Projects (EPPs)identified to be implemented in Sabah, to raise the country’s income level and create widespread job opportunities in the state.

“The EPPs involve an investment in the oil and gas sector of RM18.72 billion.

The Gross National Income (GNI) for the country is expected to be RM12.8 billion, while providing about 23,119 jobs.

“Seven EPPs have been identified for the oil and gas sector in Sabah, including the Sabah Sarawak Gas Pipeline (SSGP) extension project to the Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park (KKIP), the Kimanis Power Plant, Sabah Oil and Gas Terminal (SOGT), Sipitang Oil and Gas Industrial Park (SOGIP), Lahad Datu Re-Gasification Terminal, Lahad Datu Power Plant and Gas Separation Plant in Kimanis,” he added.

He said for the oil palm sector, two EPPs had been identified, that is, the Beluran and Kemabong Agropolitan Project, as well as the Sabah Palm Oil Industrial Cluster (POIC) project at Lahad Datu and Sandakan with an investment of RM22.485 billion.

“The GNI to be adduced from the project is RM8.766 billion and the oil palm sector will provide about 12,201 jobs,” he added.

The manufacturing and logistics sector will witness the setting up of the Main Line Operator Set Up project in the Sepanggar Investment and the KKIP project, while the GNI from this is expected to be RM1.939 billion, with about 23,471 jobs offered.

Tan said the projects and businesses identified will be developed by the private sector and also involves developing support industries such as spare parts supplies and small machines needed by the larger industries.

He said the large investments in the state will also bring about the rapid development of luxury and medium cost homes. — Bernama

Yokogawa to supply control systems for Sabah power plant
Published: 2012/07/26
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...agawa/Article/

KUALA LUMPUR: Yokogawa Electric Corp has received an undisclosed order from CTCI Consortium to supply control systems and field devices for the Kimanis combined cycle power plant, which is being built for Kimanis Power Sdn Bhd in Sabah.

Yokogawa said this order is for a comprehensive range of control and instrumentation, including the "Centrum VP" integrated production control systems for the power plant boilers and its boiler and turbine auxiliary facilities.

"The order is also for the ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system for safely shutting down the plant if any abnormal conditions occur: exhaust gas analysers, differential pressure or pressure transmitters," the company said in a statement posted on its website.

In the statement on July 11, Yokogawa announced that its affiliate Yokogawa Kontrol (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd has received the order from the consortium led by CTCI Corp of Taiwan.

"Yokogawa Kontrol will be responsible for project execution, including engineering, installation and commissioning services," it said.

When contacted by Business Times through email, Yokogawa's corporate communication department declined to reveal the value of the order, but said the company will deliver the control system and the devices to the consortium within this year.

Yokogawa will continue to expand its sales of industrial automation systems by targeting Malaysia's growing power market.

"We would like to receive more orders for power plants in Malaysia," it said, adding that Malaysia has a growing economy.

Sabahans’ Budget 2013 wish list
by Mariah Doksil, Chok Sim Yee, Suraidah Roslan, Jenne Lajiun. Posted on July 26, 2012, Thursday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2012/07...013-wish-list/





A RANDOM SURVEY found that affordable housing for urban poor, better public transport, higher minimum wage, more training courses for women, helping hand for local entertainers, lower cost of living and doing business and elimination of cabotage policy or price disparity are among the items on the wish list of people for the 2013 National Budget.

Lawrence Dexter, a 27-year old civil servant, said he hopes the 2013 Budget will focus on the infrastructure development in Sabah, especially in the urban centres.

He said there is a need to vastly improve the public transport system and municipal services in Kota Kinabalu and the major towns to enhance the quality of life, public safety and cleanliness.

Sulaiman Jaafar, 36, a private sector employee, said the Budget should focus on developing infrastructure in rural areas, especially the road system.

He said some of the roads in rural and interior areas in Sabah are in very poor condition.

“If the government wants to achieve developed country status, they should improve and upgrade the existing infrastructures,” he said.

“There is also a pressing need for the government to seriously address infrastructure problems faced by many schools in both urban and rural areas.”

Professor Dr Rosnah Ismail hopes the Budget will be distributed fairly among the rich and the poor.

“The new budget has to address the needs of the burgeoning population of poor people living in cities. It also needs to improve significantly the lives of slum dwellers and address the housing needs of the urban poor,” she said.

Rosnah also hopes to see improvement in access to basic social and health services, including reproductive health care for poor people in urban slums.

“This is also crucial to break the poverty cycle,” she said.

Rosnah also stressed on the increasing importance of corporate social responsibility, especially on matters regarding climate change.

She said it is imperative to make corporate behaviour more responsible when it comes to ethics, working conditions and on environmental sustainability.

Boutique operator Nur Jawaheer Ismail, who is well known as Wawa, said Najib should create a special fund for young entrepreneurs in Sabah to encourage more youths to consider entrepreneurship as their career.

“As many investors have said Sabah is rich in resources and it is up to us to explore what to do. With the increasing number of unemployed graduates, I am confident entrepreneurship is another way out.

Posted on October 25, 2012, Thursday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2012/10...as-of-sept-30/



HIGH INVESTMENT RETURNS: Musa says Sabah Development Corridor (SDC)
has reached RM114.045 billion from 2008 to September 30 this year, thanks
to Kota Kinabalu’s good travel connectivity to most major cities,making it
easy for investors to visit, while Sabah is also rich in natural resources.


KOTA KINABALU: Total investments in the Sabah Development Corridor (SDC) reached RM114.045 billion from 2008 to September 30 this year, said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman.

Musa, who is also the state Finance Minister, said the amount included government and private investments of RM77.514 billion for 31 Entry Point Projects (EPP) in agriculture, manufacturing and logistics, oil and gas, oil palm, tourism, infrastructure, education and Greater Kota Kinabalu.

“Of this cumulative total of RM114.045 billion, 12.7 per cent or RM14.48 billion are spent investments up to Sept 30,” he added in reply to a question from Abdul Mijul Unaini (Umno-Banggi) He cited political stability as an important factor that gave investors the confidence to continue contributing to the economic development of the state.

“The government’s caring policies, being investor friendly and the presence of young, educated human capital who could be trained is another factor drawing investors to Sabah .

“At the same time, Sabah’s strategic position from major cities in Asia such as Tokyo, Seoul and Singapore, is also proving an attraction,” he added.

Musa said Kota Kinabalu had good travel connectivity to most major cities, making it easy for investors to visit, while Sabah was also rich in natural resources such as crude oil, natural gas, oil palm and rubber.

He added that good basic infrastructure as well as the development of industrial estates such as the Palm Oil Industrial Cluster (POIC) in Lahad Datu, the POIC Sandakan and Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park, provided a condusive environment for foreign investors.

To maintain the investment momentum in Sabah, he said efforts were being made to provide wider connectivity through the construction of basic infrastructure such as roads and the development of the communications sector.

Musa said the state government would continue its series of investment promotions at the national and international levels, to draw more investors to Sabah, alongside enhancing cooperation with the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (Mida) and other central agencies.

On the matter of lobster farming in the waters of Pulau Timbun Mata, Semporna, under the Integrated Lobster Aqualture Park, he said the initiative involved an investment proposal of RM2 billion and was expected to generate 20,000 job opportunities.

Musa also urged all state and Federal government agencies involved in investment management to work closely and facilitate the entry of investors into Sabah.

Meanwhile, he had earlier said that Sabah received total foreign investments of RM9.2 billion in the manufacturing sector from Hong Kong, India, Singapore and South Korea during the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP).

He added that in the first quarter of this year, Sabah received investments of RM10.2 billion, while the value of investments in the various sectors for the whole of last year reached RM13.7 billion.

“Foreign investments in Sabah from the 9MP to the first quarter of this year generated 20,211 jobs.

“Fifty-seven per cent or 11,421 job opportunities came from the manufacturing sector with a further 43 per cent or 8,768 from the services sector and the rest in mining and agriculture,” Musa said. — Bernama

'Sabah has spent 89pc of funds under 9MP'
26 May 2013| last updated at 12:40AM
http://www.nst.com.my/nation/general...r-9mp-1.286638

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah has spent 89 per cent of the RM19.8 billion development fund allocated for the state under the 9th Malaysia Plan. Amounting to RM17.69 billion, it was fully used by the end of the 9th Malaysia Plan period.

In revealing this, state Economic Planning Unit director Datuk Ismail Abdullah said the approved amount was for 3,193 projects throughout the state.

"Out of the total projects approved, 2,511 projects (78.64 per cent) were successfully implemented and completed, while 678 projects were still in progress by the end of the plan period."

Ismail added that these projects were carried over to the 10th Malaysia Plan and have nearly all been completed.

Only four projects had not been implemented by the end of 2010 and were still at the planning stage, he said.

For the first three years of the 10th Malaysia Plan, Sabah was allocated RM13.54 billion, with 68 per cent of that amount having been spent so far on various development projects in the state.

Ismail also stressed that the implementation progress of all development projects in the state was closely monitored by the Sabah government as well as by Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman, who acts as State Action Council chairman.

"This is to ensure timely completion of projects and programmes.

"In fact, the chief minister is constantly reminding state and federal department heads in Sabah to be fast and diligent in implementing development projects."

He added that the Federal Government was constantly fine-tuning the coordination and implementation process and procedures to ensure smoother project implementation.

Novotel KK tender draws regional interest


By Lam Jian Wyn of theedgemalaysia.com
Friday, 19 July 2013 11:52 Bookmark and Share


KUALA LUMPUR: The proposed sale of Sagajuta (Sabah) Sdn Bhd's Novotel Hotel in Kota Kinabalu has drawn interest from neighbouring countries, said its exclusive agent.

"So far 15 companies have responded to a call for bids since bidding started on Monday, which is quite encouraging. They are mainly hotel investors based in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand," Zerin Properties Sdn Bhd CEO Previndran Singhe told The Edge Financial Daily.

The four-star, 16-storey, 211,086 sq ft hotel has 269 rooms that are at least 32 sq m in size. The leasehold property's tenure expires at the end of 2103.

Novotel is housed within Sagajuta's 1Borneo mixed-use commercial development in Jalan Sulaman in Kota Kinabalu, which includes the well-known 1Borneo hypermall.

The hotel has an indicative price of RM79 million, and compared to its income of RM15.04 million last year, this translates into a gross yield of 19.03%.

Previndran attributed the hotel's revenue growth - it only made RM9.9 million in 2009, a year after it opened - to the state's active tourism market and its growing oil and gas industry.

Novotel is priced at a premium considering the adjoining Grand Borneo Hotel was sold at RM86 million to the Federal Land Development Authority, said a local source.

"The RM86 million was for 325 rooms compared to Novotel's 269 rooms. However, Grand Borneo Hotel has smaller guest rooms than Novotel's which are bigger and built to international standards," said the source.

The bidding will end next Friday.

Tropicana Landmark well-received by Sabahans

Friday, 19 July 2013 11:51 Bookmark and Share


PETALING JAYA: Tropicana Corp Bhd's maiden development - Tropicana Landmark - in Sabah and Sarawak has met with a positive response. The high-rise residential development in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, saw a take-up rate of 70% at a recent roadshow at 1 Borneo Hypermall and the Property Investment and Home Expo.

According to the developer, the units were sold for an average of RM570 per sq ft (psf) and were mostly purchased by locals from Kota Kinabalu and neighbouring towns like Tawau, Sandakan, Lahad Datu and Kudat during the special preview.

With a gross development value (GDV) of RM101 million, Tropicana Landmark occupies a 1.31-acre (0.5ha) leasehold tract in Bundusan, Kota Kinabalu. The condominium overlooks Mount Kinabalu and the prestigious Sabah Golf and Country Club.

"Tropicana Landmark is our first venture into [Sabah and Sarawak] thus catapulting the Tropicana brand beyond Peninsular Malaysia. We will continue to deliver cutting-edge concepts and expand our horizons to reinforce our position as a game changer in the industry," said Tropicana group managing director Datuk Dickson Tan.

The development consists of 149 suites from the sixth floor to the penthouse on the 19th floor. Built-ups range from 1,214 to 2,753 sq ft. All units are designed to maximise daylight while providing views of Sabah Golf and Country Club, Mount Kinabalu and Tun Fuad Stephen Leisure Park.

Tropicana Landmark offers residents a fusion of eco-contemporary architecture and custom designed resort-style elements with crafted stone walls and water features in the lobby area. The sky deck on the fifth level will house various facilities which include an indoor swimming pool, gym, sauna, squash court, sky lounge and sky garden.

The development is accessible via the Luyang, Kolombong and Bundusan Highway. Located within a short distance are the Lido Market, City Hall, Damai and Lintas Commercial Centre, Sabah Medical Centre and Luyang Clinic.

Tan said Sabah is one of the key growth corridors in the country and Kota Kinabalu has become a hive of building activity. He reveals that the company is set to open registration for another project in the state - a mixed development project in Lido - by the fourth quarter of 2013 (4Q13).

Tropicana Landmark is on target for completion in 3Q14, with building works having just passed the 30% mark.

The group recently embarked on a rebranding exercise to leverage its strongest asset, the signature Tropicana name. It has been widening its geographical reach to Penang, Iskandar Malaysia in Johor and the Greater Klang Valley with targeted new launches worth RM3 billion for the 2013 financial year in all three locations.

Tropicana recently acquired 1,172 acres of prime development land in Canal City, Selangor, which will more than double its existing landbank from 900 acres to 2,000 acres, with a future GDV of RM70 billion.

Ongoing projects by the group are Tropicana Metropark in Subang Jaya, Tropicana Gardens in Tropicana Indah Resort Homes, W Kuala Lumpur Hotel and The Residences in Kuala Lumpur, Tropicana Heights in Kajang, Penang World City and Tropicana 218 Macalister on Penang island, Tropicana Danga Bay and Tropicana Danga Cove in Iskandar Malaysia.

Sabah has among highest number of ASNB
Published: 2013/09/24
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2frflgerE

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah has among the highest number of Amanah Saham Nasional Bhd (ASNB) account holders, with over 14.75 billion units owned by more than 1.2 million unitholders.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman said this showed Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB), the country's biggest fund manager, had succeeded in changing the people's perception of the investment world especially investing in unit trust schemes.

"Their substantive investments showed Sabahans have realised the importance of investing for the future. Seeing this positive development, I'm confident that Sabahans will support new unit trust schemes introduced by ASNB," he said when launching the state-level hereditary property planning and management service.

The launch here is the first before being held in Pahang, Sarawak, Melaka and Kedah.

Musa said hereditary property management service was important for the benefit of the future generation to plan and manage their hereditary properties.

Earlier, PNB chairman Tun Ahmad Sarji Abdul Hamid said Sabah was in the fifth spot in terms of investments and in fourth placing in the number of account holders.

As of August, 11.61 million ASNB account holders have bought 169.83 billion units, he said.

Meanwhile, Amanah Mutual Berhad (AMB), a wholly-owned subsidiary of ASNB, has sold over 2.68 billion units to 55,000 account holders.

"Overall, units being managed by PNB through ASNB and AMB totalled 172.51 billion," he said.

Ahmad Sarji said 83 per cent of the investments managed by PNB through ASNB and PMB were owned by Bumiputeras and 17 per cent by non-Bumiputeras.

"In terms of account holders, 89 per cent are Bumiputeras and 11 per cent non-Bumiputeras," he added.-- Bernama

Kimanis power plant on track for operation
Published: 2013/11/21
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2lIG42vRs

Kimanis power plant, a 300-megawatt (MW)combined cycle gas turbine power plant in Papar, Sabah, is on course for commissioning by June next year, Petronas Gas Bhd chief executive officer and managing director Yusa Hassan said.

He said the pre-commissioning activities at the RM1.5 billion gas-fired power plant had started and is currently in the process of completing the testing stages after the transmission lines have been commissioned.

"The testing will take about five to six months before we commercialise the power plant by May or June next year, if everything goes well," he told Bernama in an interview today.

Kimanis Power Sdn Bhd, the owner and operator of Kimanis power plant, is a 60:40 joint-venture between Petronas Gas and NRG Consortium (Sabah) Sdn Bhd, the business arm of Yayasan Sabah Group, respectively.

Yusa said the company would commission the plant, which consists of three generating blocks with each generating 100MW of power, block by block.

He said the company should be able to generate all 300MW by the end of this year, but this would depend on the transmission lines.

"At the moment the transmission line is only able to cater for about 100MW.

"Once the 300MW transmission lines are ready, then we are ready to basically commercialise all this 300MW of power to Sabah," he said.

Yusa also said that gas pipeline from Sabah to Sarawak would be commissioned in due course.

Meanwhile, he said the gas industry outlook, to some extend, was similar to the demand for oil.

"We are actually fortunate that Malaysia is one of the main exporters of natural gas.

"The main consumer of natural gas actually is North Asian countries due to lack of gas resources," Yusa said.-- Bernama

US likely to remain top foreign investor in Malaysia next year amid encouraging trend
Posted on November 21, 2013, Thursday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2013/11...#ixzz2lRFts24h

GEORGE TOWN: The United States should remain as the top foreign investor in Malaysia next year amid the encouraging investment trend this year, said US Ambassador to Malaysia, Joseph Y Yun.

He said more American investments were likely to come to Malaysia next year due to the accelerating activities in the past 12 months including huge investment from US companies namely Darden Restaurants Inc and candy maker Hershey Co.

It was reported that US-based Darden would invest RM1 billion in the world’s first integrated lobster aquaculture park in Sabah, while Hershey would build a RM816 million state-of-the-art confectionery plant in Johor.

Furthermore, Yun said existing American firms operating in Malaysia for the past 40 years were also positive and happy to do business here amid the friendly government.

“They are uniformly positive and keen to expand business in Malaysia including in Penang.

They like doing business here due to the good infrastructure, labour and environment as well as business-friendly government at both the federal and local levels,” he said.

He was speaking at a media conference after attending the American Malaysian Chamber of Commerce’s Penang Dialogue 2013 here today, which was also attended by Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

Yun said besides American investments in electrical and electronics (E&E) sector, there were also growing interest by US companies in the healthcare segment.
“There are large interests in healthcare sector which is good for the US to share technology and know-how,” he added.

Yun said Malaysian investments in the US were also growing namely Petronas, Genting and IOI Corp, adding that Khazanah Nasional’s office in San Francisco would be instrumental in attracting more investments from Malaysia.

On the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA), Yun stressed that the TPPA was a multi-level negotiation among 12 countries and it was up to each country to manage and consult the discussion.

He pointed out negotiators were not revealing the text on the TPPA, however consultation goes on, adding that

Malaysia has a good public discussion on the agreement.

“It is up to each country but there cannot be too many briefings because these momentum are changing,” he said, adding most countries would hold briefings with key stakeholders and desicion makers. — Bernama
