The state government has vowed to turn Sabah into an industrialised state by 2030 by boosting its manufacturing sector’s contribution to the state’s gross domestic product from 8.2 percent in 2018 to 35 per cent in 2030.

KOTA KINABALU: The Palm Oil Industrial Cluster (POIC) Sabah and the National Innovation Agency (AIM) will be organising a forum to discuss how the biomass sector can be developed as Sabah transforms into a more industrialised state.

Themed "Going Circular - Mobilising the Biomass Sector for Sabah’s Industrial Development”, the one-day forum held on Oct 14 will be attended by an international group of experts, said POIC Sabah Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Dr Pang Teck Wai.
