‘Be global player in green economy’

The focus on the development of green energy in Sarawak is to make the state a leading player in the new economy, says the Sarawak Premier.

Tan Sri Abang Johari Openg said plans to produce new energy material, and development of new infrastructure and takeover of existing infrastructure, will also bring Sarawak closer to its target of becoming a hub for Asean economic development.

“We will be the leading player of new economy, not just in Malaysia or among Asean countries, but in the world,” he said when speaking at the Gawai Ngabang programme at the Betong division yesterday.

Abang Johari said following the takeover of Bintulu Port from the Federal Government, Sarawak will develop new ports with equivalent equipment to cater to future economic development.

“We will develop what is called an Energy Hub in Samalaju and Kidurong (both in Bintulu) and will also develop the Trans Borneo Pipeline to supply gas throughout Sarawak,” he said, Bernama reported.

Abang Johari said these plans will create new job opportunities that offered high salaries to highly qualified and talented Sarawakians.

He said the people in Betong Division will not be left out of the development plan, especially in preparing the young to obtain quality higher education and talent development.

A new building will also be built in Betong as the Centre of Technical Excellence Sarawak (Centexs Sarawak), which currently is operating in a rented building.
