Digitising Sarawak, Amplifying Growth

Sarawak’s Socio-Economic Transformation Plan or SETP was conceptualised to guide the state towards becoming a high income and advanced state, with key emphasis on (1) rural transformation, (2) economic growth, (3) urban redevelopment, (4) social development, and (5) environmental development. To support the SETP, more than 70% of this year’s state budget has been earmarked for development, with the remainder for operational expenditure.

Since 2000, the state’s efforts have been concentrated on Sarawak’s Corridor of Renewable Energy or SCORE to create new sources of wealth and move economic activities up the value chain in order to achieve higher per capita income, as well as to enhance quality of life and eradicate poverty to achieve more balanced rural-urban development. But the time has come to expand the state’s efforts beyond harnessing Sarawak’s rich natural resources and its wealth of energy resources to drive SCORE.

Therefore, the state government has embarked on the ambitious challenge of digitising Sarawak into a cyber powerhouse. This would not only complement earlier efforts expended on SCORE, but also multiply the benefits derived from SCORE to amplify Sarawak’s growth even as it changes the way Sarawakians live and work.

The 4th Sarawak Business and Investment Summit will be a timely platform to review the state government’s strategic, complementary two-pronged direction and provide up-to-date business and investment outlook to help industry captains, entrepreneurs and regulators reassess their future plans. Key areas to be covered include future outlook, tourism, infrastructure and construction, SCORE and energy, as well as human capital and entrepreneurship.
