HAVING a proactive developer can go a long way towards building a vibrant township, and the Sibu Rural District Council (SRDC) is working with Amcorp Sibujaya on this.

SRDC chairman Sempurai Petrus Ngelai said Amcorp had consistently proven to be a reliable partner in SRDC’s effort to bring more services and facilities to Sibujaya. Speaking at a thanksgiving ceremony in conjunction with the Sea of Green community padi planting project here, he said the group had been at the forefront alongside other Sarawak authorities in efforts to develop the township.

He said Amcorp was also instrumental in creating innovative and inclusive community-driven events such as Carnival Sibujaya, Sibujaya Water Fiesta and GP Sibujaya Motocross over the years.

“We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Amcorp for the benefit of the people,” he added.

Sempurai also attributed Sibujaya’s exponential growth to the vision of Sarawak Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Openg.

“When he was the state Housing minister, he revamped Sibujaya and through his visionary masterplan, the township was brought on track to realise its full potential as can be seen so clearly today,” said Sempurai.

SRDC, in collaboration with all relevant government agencies and master developer Amcorp Sibujaya, will work towards the full realisation of Abang Johari’s vision, he added.

The Sibujaya township began in the mid-1990s and to date, there are more than 6,700 residential units with a population of about 35,000 people.

Other than winning awards for its masterplan, residential and commercial properties, it has also gained a reputation as the preferred venue for large-scale events, due largely to the positive response from residents within the township and its surrounding zones for such events.

Among those present at the ceremony were Sibujaya OCPD chief inspector Rodua Tayo and Amcorp Properties group chief operating officer Azlan Baqee Abdullah.
