Sabah govt implements plans to woo investors, says Hajiji
Chief minister Hajiji Noor said the state government had set aside RM680 million to address the critical issue of clean water supply.
PETALING JAYA: The Sabah government has implemented a number of plans to make the state more attractive for investors, chief minister Hajiji Noor said.

He said the Sabah government’s RM2.63 billion funding for infrastructure development programmes and public amenities in the state budget this year demonstrated its commitment to address challenges and spur economic growth, Bernama reported.

At an investors’ forum in Kota Kinabalu today, Hajiji said RM680 million was allocated to address the critical issue of providing clean water supply, while RM431 million was set aside for infrastructure maintenance.

He said another significant plan was enhancing road connectivity, reiterating the state government’s commitment to completing the Pan Borneo Highway project, along with other roads.

Meanwhile, the chief minister said Sabah has launched the 2040 Sabah energy roadmap and master plan to help transition to renewable energy and reduce its dependence on fossil fuels.

“To improve hydro capacity, we launched the Ulu Padas hydroelectric project last December, which can contribute some 188MW and can also supply six billion litres of water a day.

“The capacity of existing water treatment plants has also been increased,” he added.
