SIMANGGANG: The study of a masterplan for the Sri Aman Development Plan 2021-2030 is expected to be completed within six months and estimated to cost around RM5 million.

State Secretary Datuk Amar Jaul Samion said the provision was approved on behalf of the Sri Aman Development Authority (Sada) to conduct the study.

He said the Sarawak government had approved the allocation and a consultant has been appointed.

“The consultant will start the study this month with the submission deadline being set for December 10, 12 and 20 this year.

“The Economic Planning Unit (EPU) will gather the findings of the study, including details of the workshop discussions and then assemble them to bring together all the facts,” he said.

He said this during the closing of the first Sada Development Project Master Plan Workshop here, today.

Among those present were Sada chairperson Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim, who is also Batang Lupar MP; Assistant Minister of Community Wellbeing Datuk Francis Harden Hollis; Sri Aman District Resident Indit Bangai; and 147 contestants.

Jaul said the education, agriculture and tourism sectors have great potential to be developed under the Sada Development Master Plan over the next 10 years.

“However, Sada must find a way to bring residents together to make the plan a success.

“The most important thing here is to educate the people. Therefore, Sada hopes to enhance the strategy so that the plan can be implemented starting next year,” he said.
