RECODA had an information desk during a trade seminar held on 24 March 2014 at Dewan Suara Mukah. The seminar was held to provide information to Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Mukah and briefings were conducted by banking institutions, the State Planning Unit and MID.
KUCHING: Chief Minister Pehin Sri Haji Abdul Taib Mahmud chaired the 4th Regional Corridor Development Authority (RECODA) Board of Directors’ Meeting here, on 20th January, 2014.
During the meeting, Pehin Sri Haji Abdul Taib Mahmud – who is also the chairman of the RECODA Board of Directors – pointed out that the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) is currently enjoying a growth momentum, which the State should focus on preserving.
As such, he believed that the State must also keep a close eye on the global economic situation, as shifts in the world market would have a significant impact on Sarawak, especially as the local economy becomes more globalised.
Apart from that, RECODA’s Chairman stressed on the importance of creating greater awareness among the local small- and medium-sized industries, regarding opportunities created by the vastly-expanding economic activities in SCORE.
During the meeting, held at the Chief Minister’s Office at Wisma Bapa Malaysia, RECODA Chief Executive Officer Datuk Amar Wilson Baya Dandot briefed the Board members on the Authority’s performance and on the overall progress and development of SCORE.
In attendance were the Board’s Deputy Chairman, Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri (Dr) Alfred Jabu Anak Numpang, and Board members State Secretary Tan Sri Datuk Amar Mohamad Morshidi Abdul Ghani; mhMarican Advisory Sdn Bhd Chairman and CEO Tan Sri Mohd Hassan Marican; and State Financial Secretary Dato Sri Ahmad Tarmizi Haji Sulaiman.
Also attending the board meeting were representatives of the Treasury Secretary-General; Public Private Partnership Unit (Prime Minister’s Department) Director General; and Economic Planning Unit (Prime Minister’s Department) Director General.
MUKAH: RECODA Chief Executive Officer Datuk Amar Wilson Baya Dandot and his management team held briefing sessions to update the private and public sectors on the latest developments within the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE).
The sessions – held separately for each of the sectors at RECODA’s Mukah office – also focused on the Mukah Smart City study, which is currently still ongoing.
For the briefing session with the public sector, about 60 representatives from various government departments and agencies in Mukah were in attendance. More than 15 representatives, mostly from the financial institutions and major industries in the Division attended the session for the private sector.
The team of consultants responsible for the Mukah Smart City study were also at the briefing sessions; invited by RECODA to share some of their insights.
According to Datuk Amar Wilson, briefings such as these are vital to the success of SCORE, and as such he plans to hold more sessions, not only with stakeholders in Mukah but throughout the State, as well.
“For the past two years, we have been briefing fund managers, financial researchers and business analysts, who want to learn more about Sarawak and SCORE.
“I believe it is important that we also talk to the various stakeholders, in order to update them on the progress of SCORE and more importantly to discuss and share views with the business community and the public sector,” said the RECODA CEO.
He pointed out that one of the most exciting developments in Mukah will be the influx in 2015 of about 2,000 young people from throughout the country; representing the first batch of students for the new UiTM Mukah Campus, which is still under construction.
He added that Mukah also stands to enjoy far greater progress in the near future, especially with more private sector and public sector investments coming in through SCORE development projects.
