KUCHING: The development of green hydrogen as an environmentally sustainable industry is in line with the Post Covid-19 Development Strategy (PCDS) 2030, says Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan.

“Sarawak possesses many comparative advantages to support the development of a green hydrogen industry, including our huge river resources that generate hydropower.

“In addition, this development is in line with the PCDS 2030 focusing on strategic sectors to leapfrog Sarawak towards a high-income economy by 2030.

“Sarawak welcomes such investment as it is capable of creating many economic and social benefits to Sarawak,” added the Deputy Chief Minister.

Awang Tengah, who is also Second Minister for Urban Development and Natural Resources, said this when he met with an Australian conglomerate on Friday (July 30) on the potential to develop a large-scale green hydrogen project in Sarawak.

The virtual meeting was also attended by Utilities Minister Datuk Seri Dr Stephen Rundi Utom; Assistant Entrepreneur Development and Small and Medium Enterprises Minister Datuk Mohd Naroden Majais; Assistant Industrial Development Minister Datuk Malcolm Mussen Lamoh; State Secretary Datuk Amar Jaul Samion; and other senior government officials.
