Country Profile

Sarawak 2015 Country Profile

Sarawak is one of the three regions comprising East Malaysia, with neighbouring state Sabah to its north-east and the federal territory of Labuan situated off the north coast of Borneo. The state remains unique both within Malaysia and within the global context due to its mix of rugged mountains and thick jungle alongside numerous cosmopolitan cities and centres of commerce. With the inception of the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy, a growth area running across much of central Sarawak, the state was able to successfully harness its naturally abundant source of energy in hydropower and spur investment in heavy industry. The plentiful availability of the power needed to feed such heavy industry has helped to shape Sarawak into an investment destination in its own right, as the state increasingly attracts foreign investment from the world over.

This chapter contains interviews with Adenan Satem, Chief Minister of Sarawak; and Mohamad Morshidi bin Abdul Ghani, Sarawak State Secretary.
