BAU: Bau District 2016-2030 Blueprint will be launched on December 14.
This was revealed by Tasik Biru assemblyman Datuk Henry Harry Jinep who said the launch would be at Krokong Bazaar during a ‘Leaders with the People Programme’ which will begin at 10am.

“In this blueprint, we have laid out our plans from 2016 to 2030 in line with the state’s aspiration to be a developed state by 2030,” he said in a press conference after launching ‘Bau Bikers Gathering 2019’ at Tasik Biru Festival, yesterday.

The blueprint has eight important components namely Basic Amenities and Infrastructure; Housing and Real Estate; Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sports; Agriculture; Capacity and Building; Land Matters; Publications and Industralisation and Investment.

“Today I can just give you the skeleton of the blueprint. As for the details, Chief Minister Abang Johari Tun Openg will announce them on the launch day,” he said.

On the blueprint booklet which has over 60 pages, Henry said the ideas were contributed by himself, Serembu assemblyman Miro Simuh, Lundu assemblyman Datuk Ranum Mina, and Batu Kitang assemblyman Lo Khere Chiang.

“It took us four years to produce this blueprint. We must also acknowledge the hard work of the District Office, Resident’s Office and other government agencies,” he said.

“To come up with this blueprint we have a think tank for each sector with 30 people. Most of the development will be in the rural areas,” he said.

He said the blueprint which will take 14 years to implement would lift Bau up to a whole new level.

“The development requires a huge amount of money which I will leave to Abang Johari to announce during the launch.”

Henry also said the day of the launch, some 600 people from Bau and Lundu would receive titles to their native customary rights (NCR) land which have been surveyed under Section 18 of the Sarawak Land Code.

Also present at the Krokong Bazaar programme was Bau District Officer, Anielia Siam.
