SIBU: The people of SibuJaya should rightfully be proud to be the pioneers of this vibrant township, said local community leader Datuk Wan Hamid Edruce.
“Without you, there will not be a SibuJaya.
“Because of you, SibuJaya is growing and thriving,” he said at the launch of Fiesta SibuJaya here.
Wan Hamid said SibuJaya’s development was the vision of Chief Minister Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Openg when he was the Housing Minister to see the township becoming an award-winning masterplan.
The township had grown by leaps and bounds to become one of the most sought-after residential area, said Wan Hamid.
“I am confident that SibuJaya will continue to grow rapidly and achieve bigger success in the future,” he added.
Town councillor Kong Yii Tee said SibuJaya had truly come along way.
“In the past, many residents hesitated to tell people that they lived in SibuJaya because it was not a prestigious residential area,” she said.
“But now, houses and shops here are highly sought-after.
“These happened through efforts of the Housing Ministry, the Sibu Rural District Council (SRDC), developer and SibuJaya folk.
“There are still many exciting developments to come,” said Kong, who is assigned by SRDC to oversee SibuJaya.
“I am here to serve all the people of SibuJaya, she said.
Kong praised Sibujaya developer Distrepark Sdn Bhd for bringing such a large-scale event to the township.
“Distrepark has proven that they are not just creator of buildings and infrastructure but also builders of homes and a wholesome life,” she said.
