Vibrant growth expected from Sabah corridor

KOTA KINABALU: A more vibrant state economy powered partly by high value industries and environmentally sensitive tourism activities are among the high expectations being pinned on the Sabah Development Corridor (SDC).

Sabah's business communities say they are looking forward to the SDC, which is to be launched by the Prime Minister on Jan 29.

The 18-year project, which will run until 2025, would stimulate growth particularly in the state.

"This is something all Sabahans are looking forward to," said Kota Kinabalu Chinese Chamber of Commerce president Datuk Sari Tan.

His counterpart at the Sabah Bumiputra Chamber of Commerce Datuk Ahmad Ali Lope Abdul Aziz said the SDC would ensure a modern economy and infrastructure for the state.

"I think with the Corridor in place the people of Sabah can expect a better life," he said.

Ahmad said the chamber had given its input for the SDC blueprint that looked into the micro aspects of the state to address the economic disparity among the various districts.

In this regard, he said the SDC would offer numerous investment opportunities for Sabahan entrepreneurs and those from outside the state.

"Our hope is that we will be involved in whatever opportunities available," Ahmad said.
