Sarawak 2015 Score

One of the five regional economic corridors being developed throughout the country, the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) is part of the federal government’s national agenda to propel the country into achieving high-income status by 2020. SCORE’s game plan for transitioning Sarawak into a high-income state is premised on transforming its economic base towards advanced industry by more effectively using and adding value to its vast natural resources. At the same time, clean and affordable power provides a competitive advantage for attracting energy-intensive investment. The impetus now is on the state to ramp up its educational efforts and streamline immigration procedures to ensure that the stock of human capital keeps pace. Port projects are being monitored closely, as not only does capacity need to be expanded, but the construction of purpose-built storage facilities is also required to cater to new materials being produced by companies in SCORE such as aluminium products, pulp and paper, bio-diesel, downstream timber products and agro-produce.

This chapter contains interviews with Wilson Baya Dandot, CEO, Regional Corridor Development Agency (RECODA); Takeo Suzuki, President, Tokuyama Malaysia; and Isaac Lugun, CEO, Samalaju Industries.
