One-stop centre in Tanjung Manis offers convenience, efficiency


KUCHING: The Tanjung Manis integrated administration building, set to be completed by December this year, will be a one-stop centre that offers various services to residents in and around Tanjung Manis.

Assistant Urban Development and Resources Minister Datuk Len Talif Salleh said the 16-storey, RM78.2million facility, which began construction in March 2018, would be a people-friendly, fast and effective service platform.

He added that the facility not only strengthened government-to-government (G2G) and government-to-citizen (G2C) services but also was a place for folk to get various services under one roof.

Currently, residents had to commute to Mukah, Sibu or Sarikei if they wanted to deal with official matters.

“This landmark building is a symbol of the government’s commitment to sustainable development in Tanjung Manis,” he said on Tuesday (June 22).

Among the agencies housed in the building are Sarawak Timber Industry Development Corporation (STIDC), Tanjung Manis District Office, Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC), Immigration, Customs and other government agencies.

He pointed out that STIDC had been entrusted by the Sarawak government to construct the building.

“Once the construction is completed, most of these agencies and departments will move in next year. This will enable services to be provided efficiently to the public.

“For the private sector, this building gives confidence that there will be more development of supporting infrastructure to improve the standard of living for communities in Tanjung Manis while also realising Tanjung Manis’ aspirations as one of the growth nodes in the state,” he added.
