The project is aimed at creating a more diverse landscape for the vibrant township and also providing local residents with some form of income by putting currently idle land to use.

KUCHING, Dec 12: Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg’s visionary masterplan has led Sibu Jaya to exponential growth.

In pointing this out, Sibu Rural District Council (SRDC) chairman Sempurai Petrus Ngelai in a statement today said when the Premier was the Minister for Housing previously, he revamped Sibu Jaya to bring it on track to realise its full potential as can be seen so clearly today.

“SRDC in collaboration with all relevant government agencies and the master developer Amcorp Sibujaya would work towards the full realisation of the Premier’s vision,” he said.


Sempurai said this during a “miring” (thanksgiving) ceremony in conjunction with the “Sea of Green” community paddy planting project in Sibu today.

Meanwhile, Sempurai lauded Amcorp SibuJaya as a proactive developer of the vibrant township.

According to him, Amcorp has consistently proven to be a reliable and able partner in SRDC’s effort to bring more services and facilities to Sibu Jaya.

“The Group has always been at the forefront, alongside the Sarawak authorities in the effort to develop Sibu Jaya,” he added.

The Sibu Jaya township began in the mid 90’s and to-date there are more than 6,700 residential units with a population of around 35,000 people.

Other than winning awards for its masterplan, and residential and commercial properties, it has also gained a reputation as the preferred venue for large scale events, due largely to the positive response from residents within the township itself and surrounding zones, for such events. — DayakDaily
