KUCHING: A 37-member delegation from the Singapore Trade Mission called on Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg at his office here today.

The visitors, comprising senior officials from the Republic’s public and private sectors, were led by the permanent secretary (Development), Ministry of Commerce Singapore (MTI) Lee Chuan Teck.

The trade mission aimed at exploring potential opportunities for Singapore through collaboration with Sarawak in the renewable energy, hydrogen, carbon capture and storage, carbon credit, digital economy and data centres, ports and agriculture sectors.

Business and network matching are reportedly underway with companies in Sarawak involved in the above sectors.
