Date:

KUCHING: Investors are eager to proceed with the Lawas Petrochemical And Refinery Integrated Project, said Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan.

The International Trade and Industry, Industrial Terminal and Entrepreneur Development Minister said he was informed that Beijing BECA Sci-Tech Co Ltd and Sinopec Engineering Incorporated of China were looking to conduct the geotechnical study once allowed to travel to Sarawak.

“The briefing was done via video conferencing and attended by both BECA chairman Dong Chao and Sinopec Engineering chief engineer Huo Hongwei,” he said in a press release yesterday (Sept 28).

Awang Tengah said he gave assurance to the investors that both the state and federal governments will facilitate the proposed investment so that it could materialise and bring about benefits to both parties.

“Beijing BECA and Sinopec Engineering chose Sarawak, particularly Lawas as it is strategically located within the Asean region and the consumer market.

“The project will not only provide employment opportunities to the local, but economic spinoff to the local SMEs in many areas such as construction, logistics, maintenance of facilities, supply of food, accommodation and so on,” he added.

Industrial Development Assistant Minister Datuk Dr Malcolm Mussen Lamoh, International Trade and Industry, Industrial Terminal and Entrepreneur Development Ministry (Mintred) permanent secretary Datuk Liaw Soon Eng and senior officials from relevant departments and agencies were also present during the meeting.
