Sabah
Kota Kinabalu
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kota Kinabalu, formerly known as Jesselton, is the capital of Sabah, a state in Malaysia, as well as the capital of the West Coast Division of Sabah. Located on the northwest coast of the island of Borneo facing the South China Sea and Tunku Abdul Rahman Park on one side, and with Mount Kinabalu in the background, Kota Kinabalu sprawls for kilometers along the coast and towards inland.

Kota Kinabalu, often simply known as K.K. within Malaysia, and to an extent, internationally, as a tourism getaway and a major gateway into Sabah and Borneo. Kinabalu National Park is located about 90 kilometres from the city, and besides this, it also features a number of tourist attractions in and around the city itself. The city is also one of the major industrial and commercial centers in East Malaysia. These two factors combine to make Kota Kinabalu one of the fastest growing cities in the country.[3]

Malaysian Borneo Gateway
Kota Kinabalu International Airport
Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) is located about 8 km from the city of Kota Kinabalu, the state capital of Sabah, Malaysia. It is the second busiest airport in Malaysia after Kuala Lumpur International Airport with around 4 million passengers using this airport annually for domestic and international flights. It is also the main gateway into the state of Sabah. In 2006, about 2 million unique tourists visited Sabah, and it is estimated that this number will exceed 2.5 million by the end of 2007.



Kuching International Airport (KIA)
The Kuching International Airport (KIA) has long been overlooked by many. Despite being the third largest airport in Malaysia, this airport seems to be rather underutilized after the Malaysian air rationalisation.

Labuan
Federal Territory
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



Labuan is the main island of the Malaysian Federal Territory of Labuan. Labuan is best known as an offshore financial centre and a tourist destination for nearby Bruneians and scuba divers. The name Labuan derives from the Malay word labuhan meaning anchorage.

Population
The population of 78,000 (est. 2000) is mostly Malay, with minorities of Chinese, Kedayans, Filipinos, Indians, Bugis, Bajau and Expatriates.

The Malaysian government's attempts to turn Labuan into an international banking centre has had only limited success, but the government still offers incentives to try to lure in new investors. With land utilization geared more towards property and industrial use, there is little agricultural activity. Most of the island's prime land, waterfront and suburbs are utilised for residential and tourism development. A sizeable area on the southwestern side of the island is occupied by shipbuilding, manufacturing and oil and gas industries. Within recent decades Labuan has undergone significant improvements in infrastructure and services.



Labuan International Airport
Labuan Airport is an airport that serves Labuan in Malaysia. The airport is 8 km from Labuan. It was planned for Labuan Airport to be a regional hub for connecting flights within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) but this plan was postponed due to logistics and unsuitability. At present, this airport is being expanded to accommodate larger aircraft such as the Boeing 777 and the Airbus A330, with 3 aerobridges. In 2005, the airport handled 642,582 passengers and 9,292 aircraft movements, though the airport is able to handle over 1.2 million passengers per year.

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

KUCHING: Datuk Raziah Mahmud-Geneid has been appointed as chairman of Borneo Isthmus Development Sdn Bhd.

The recently formed company will be involved in the management and operation of the new Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK), said in a press statement yesterday.

Meanwhile, Trevor McCartney was appointed as BCCK chief executive. McCartney is highly-experienced in the management of convention centres.

He was formerly the director of international sales and operations at Pattaya Exhibition and Convention Hall (Thailand), Edinburgh International Conference Centre, the International Convention Centre (Birmingham) and the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre (London).

Apart from his broad international convention centre experience, he also provided consultancy services for projects in Hong Kong and Dublin.

The state-of-the-art BCCK is developed on a six hectare riverfront site in Kuching at the cost of RM200 million and scheduled to be opened in June 2009.

The centre, which is the first dedicated convention and exhibition centre on Borneo Island, has a gross floor area of 36,500 square metres and is still under construction.

Once completed, it will be able to accommodate up to 5,000 people in a plenary session or 2,000 for a banquet.

The venue will be part of the development at the Isthmus that will feature a marina, office, hotel and residential accommodation, complemented by other retail and leisure outlets.
