KUCHING: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak will make a two-day working visit to Bintulu on Monday and Tuesday.

His first stop on Monday afternoon will be Rumah Henry Nuni Plen, an Iban longhouse of more than 50 doors near Bintulu where a crowd of some 5,000 people are expected to meet him.

In the evening, Najib and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor will attend a dinner hosted by the state government. Also present will be Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem, state and federal ministers and industry players.

The next morning, the premier will launch the Pan-Borneo Highway project at the Bakun junction rest and recreation (R&R) area, located at KM32 of the Miri-Bintulu trunk road.

The project comprises three sections – Nyabau-Bakun (43km) scheduled for completion by mid-2017, Tanjung Datu-Sematan-Miri (780km) and Tedungan-Merapok-Sindumin (96km) in the Limbang and Lawas region, both of which are expected to be completed by mid-2023.

Najib will continue his working visit to the Samalaju Industrial Park where he will be briefed by the State Planning Unit on its progress, followed by visits to the Tokuyama (M) Sdn Bhd and Press Metal factories.

He will end his visit at the Samalaju Port before flying back to Kuala Lumpur.
