TEBEDU: The Tebedu Immigration, Customs, Quarantine and Security Complex (ICQS) will be developed if it is approved by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin revealed this when interviewed during his visit to Tebedu ICQS and Tebedu Inland Port (TIP) here on Sunday (July 19).

He said the decision on Tebedu ICQS would only be known during the Prime Minister’s visit with Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg to the complex on July 26 (Sunday).

“From what I see, we already have room to make this place more developed in the future,” said Hamzah.

The Home Minister explained his visit to the site was to assess whether the plans for Tebedu ICQS would be continued.  

“Within a week, I will present a paper for the Prime Minister to decide,” he said.

Also present were Serian MP Datuk Seri Richard Riot and Malaysian Immigration director-general Datuk Indera Khairul Dzaimee Daud.

Previously, a task force was created to look into the possibility of either upgrading existing facilities or building a new building for Tebedu ICQS.

The TIP facility will be fully utilised to enhance bilateral trade between Malaysia and Indonesia.
