The state government will continue to strengthen its collaboration with Sarawak Housing and Real Estate Developers Association (Sheda) in providing affordable houses to the people in Sarawak.

 

In this regard, Chief Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg said the state government through the Local Government and Housing Ministry would welcome all kinds of feedback from Sheda and other industry players for the improvement of the local housing industry.

 

He said the state government acknowledged that the active participation by Sheda is crucial in improving housing development for the people of Sarawak.

 

“We hope that closer collaboration would strengthen the mature partnership shared (between state government and Sheda) as we collectively and proactively seek to address housing policies, suitability and accessibility, for all income groups.

 

“We trust that the combined resources of both the public and the private sectors will enlarge our collective vision for the development of Sarawak,” he said at the official launch of Sheda’s Property Expo 2017 at Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) yesterday.

 

The chief minister’s text of speech was read by Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Dr Sim Kui Hian.

 

Abang Johari also pointed out that it was not easy to formulate a statewide, holistic housing model that is sturdy enough to provide for adequate, affordable and quality housing – yet fluid enough to adapt not only to the changing needs and lifestyles of individuals, but also the different needs required by the growing urban and rural populations.

 

Still, he believed that this is ‘certainly not impossible’.

 

On another mater, Abang Johari said the state government is committed to addressing the concerns that Sarawakians have over the lack of infrastructure, the need to open up more land for various commercial activities and the impact that rural-urban migration is having on development plans and housing prices throughout Sarawak.

 

In this regard, he said the state government has dedicated its time and resources to developing well-reasoned approaches that take into consideration the complex sub-issues, which are equally important.

 

He noted that this year, the state government have many development programmes such as the RM2.5 billion acquisition of the Bakun hydroelectric power (HEP) dam from the federal government, the RM1 billion investment to prepare trunk information technology and communication (ICT) infrastructure for Sarawak to harness its potential in ‘Digital Economy’, the establishment of state-owned Development Bank of Sarawak (DBOS), the state’s exploration into downstream activities related to the oil and gas industry, and also a plan to set up a Light Rail Transport (Lrt) system connecting Kuching, Samarahan and Serian.

 

He said the state government plans to implement all these projects to uplift the standard of living of Sarawakians.

 

“While these areas may not have the high population concentration that is linked to housing shortage, over the next few decades, these areas may very well be the next frontier to the property industry,” said Abang Johari.
