“I am confident that Parkland City will become a hub for business and tourism for people from Sabah, Sarawak and Brunei Darussalam.

“The value of the development will further appreciate if the proposed bridge connecting Labuan to Menumbok on mainland Sabah becomes a reality.

“The location of the project is very ideal as it is along the route connecting the interior townships, including Keningau, Tenom, Kimanis, Beaufort and Kuala Penyu,” she said.
