KUCHING, June 6: Sarawak Deputy Premier Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan today led a delegation from the Ministry of International Trade, Industry and Investment (Mintred) for a meeting with Surbana Jurong Infrastructure Pte Ltd in Singapore.

The meeting was to update Mintred on the progress of a consultancy study undertaken by Surbana Jurong as part of the State’s broader industrial transformation plan.

A key aim of the study is to explore bold and innovative ways to meet the future needs of Sarawak’s economic development, with sustainability as a core area of growth, especially in the development of the downstream oil and gas industry.

Surbana Jurong is studying both green and brown field industrial development, in line with Post-Covid-19 Development Strategy (PCDS) 2030 and Sarawak’s transition to renewable energy alternatives, hydrogen, carbon capture, utilisation and storage as it takes steps towards decarbonisation.

Also present were Mintred advisor Datuk Mohd Naroden Majais, Mintred acting permanent secretary Dzulkornain Masron and Mintred Special Function Officer Datu Liaw Soon Eng. — DayakDaily
