KUCHING: The delayed Sentoria Borneo Samariang Garden Phase 7 within the Borneo Samariang Resort City project in Petra Jaya will be taken over by the state government once the relevant legal issues have been solved.
Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg said the state government was concerned about it and had warned the developer about the consequences of not completing the project.
“The developer is a listed company, so we can only take over the project when all the problems and legal issues have been solved. I don’t think the developer can continue with the project,” he said when met by reporters at Gedong Aidilfitri gathering at Raia Hotel here, yesterday.
The housing project is supposed to have been completed in 2019, but to date, it is incomplete even though buyers have started paying off their housing loans.
On another matter, Abang Johari stated that Sarawak is seen as the only state that has the policy to transform into a green economy.
“With the Sarawak green economy approach, two countries namely Korea (Samsung) and Japan (Sumitomo) will produce 100,000 tonnes of hydrogen in the state for themselves.
“Therefore, with this involvement, the world will see Sarawak as the only state in Asia that gives serious attention to the green economy,” he said.
Abang Johari said as a consequence, he has been invited to speak at the World Hydrogen Summit from May 9 until 11 in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
“I will go there and introduce our policy and following the introduction, I think the investment on green economy will focus on our state,” he said.
He added that Sarawak has the advantage, as when the state introduced the digital economy together with the green economy, it has a wide market because the world is embracing both economies.
“This could help clean up the environment,” he said.
