THE new definition of air rights and clarification of spectrum will give rise to a new class of job opportunities in technical and engineering sectors, Wilson Nyabong Ijang (GPS-Pelagus) said.

Speaking in support of the Land Code (Amendment) Bill 2022, he said he could foresee young people being involved in various jobs that would be in demand to service the new areas of concern.

Adding on, he said this would be a great service to the people of Sarawak.

(Air rights refer to the legal ability to occupy the vertical air space above a plot of real estate. This encompasses any empty space above a property, from the upper stories of a high-rise building, to power lines, to a region of airspace above a property.)

“The changes that we are making are indeed novel and bold. I for one foresee that capitalising on the new definition, especially on the air rights, will have positive financial returns for our beloved state.

“Not only will we be able to define the air column, but we will be able to monetise it, especially with the current digital era.

“With the air space now being used for telecommunications, internet connectivity, satellite usage and high-rise buildings, it is indeed an opportune moment for Sarawak to monetise this as it is done in other cities like New York, Singapore, and Hong Kong,” he said during debate time on the Bill today.

He said the proactive stance shown by the state government was indeed laudable as Sarawak would be pioneers in capitalising air column above land and looking at monetising the state’s air rights.
