Sarawak reaches out to Qatar investors

Reading Time: 1 minute

Taib_0210In his keynote speech delivered on June 12 at the Inside Sarawak 2013 launch in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia, the state’s chief minister, Taib Mahmud, emphasised his intent to extend business relationships with Qatar.

Most notably, during the chief minister’s meeting with Masraf Al Rayan, one of the largest Islamic investment companies in Qatar, the group was briefed on Sarawak’s investment opportunities, namely in the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE), which includes growth nodes of hydropower assets, heavy industries and agriculture.

“Sarawak’s relationship with the Middle East is long,” Chief Minister Taib said, but now it was time to take it a step further.

Sarawak’s leader also made sure to point out his state’s gleaming achievements over the past year, which included a steady rise in foreign invest inflow, rapid development in the infrastructure sector and growing industrialisation throughout the business nodes of the state.

Taib also mentioned that with research-based growth nodes such as Tanjung Manis Halal Hub, extra time is usually needed. However, a presentation on the breakthroughs being made in halal science by Prof. Dr. Winai Dahlan of Thailand’s Chulalongkorn University could signal some future south-south collaboration in the slow-moving node of SCORE.

Dahlan said that Sarawak will receive a delegation to the Halal Science Center in Bangkok shortly that will look into the possibility to send Sarawak students to get comprehensive training in halal research.
