KUCHING, Feb 22: The town of Mutiara Tebedu has the potential to become a commercial and agricultural hub between Tebedu and West Kalimantan.

According to a news report published by Sarawak Public Communications Unit (Ukas), Tebedu assemblyman Dr Simon Sinang Bada stated that Mutiara Tebedu’s proximity to the Indonesian border makes it an ideal location for such a hub.

“We should take advantage of this opportunity to develop Tebedu for the benefit of the locals,” Sinang said while presiding over the coordination meeting of the Greater Kuching Coordinated Development Agency (GKCDA) Tebedu Area Mini Laboratory in Tebedu today.

The meeting was held to identify and evaluate the priority of proposals from five sectors: development, utilities and telecommunications, agriculture, non-agricultural development, and social development.

Meanwhile, Sinang emphasised that the proposals from the five sectors should be linked to ensure that the development of the five sectors is coordinated.

Also present were GKCDA chief executive officer Datu Ik Pahon Joyik, Tebedu District Officers Joseph Liaw and Dr Ahi Sarok, Serian District Council deputy chairman Cr Asem Linkin, Serian Division JKR Engineer Martina Aisan, AA Atai Nyuleng, and Pemanca Kane Manung. — DayakDaily
