This isn’t the first but definitely not the last time we heard people in the state government repeating it SCORE will create million of jobs. State assemblymen (Dr Rundi and Datuk Talib Zulpilip) have repeated it many times – kinda fed up listening to them. Now it’s the turn of the new state secretary . Via The Star
Sarawak’s second wave of development will create 1.5 million new jobs, said State Secretary Datuk Morshidi Abdul Ghani.
He said this would be made possible through huge investments in the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE).
“Of the estimated RM334bil investments in SCORE by 2030, a lot will come from the private sector.
“The government will also invest significantly in infrastructure development,’’ he said in his lecture at Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Sarawak’s vice-chancellor and deans awards’ presentation here yesterday.
Morshidi said the state gross domestic product (GDP) was expected to soar to RM74bil by 2020 and RM118bil by 2030 from the present RM23bil.
He added that some 1.5 million jobs would be created by the various industries — like aluminium smelter, steel, glass, oil palm, aquaculture, livestock and tourism.
“You do not have to worry about job opportunities.
In Bintulu, generally, the business communities were rather luck warm of SCORE as if they knew there were nothing in it for them.
That’s why Taib’s has been moving the whole state government machinery to promote SCORE – to make it look like a government projects – when in fact it is nothing more than his family businesses.
