Sabah seeking allocation to build deep water port in Kudat, says Bung


KOTA KINABALU: Sabah is asking for allocations to build a deep water port in the Kudat district, says Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin.

The Sabah Works Minister said the state government would proceed with the plan to build a port in Kudat to boost economic growth for locals and the state, but needs funding to get the project going.

“I have discussed the project with the Chief Minister and he has agreed to it, so we hope the Federal Government can allocate funds for the project,” he said.

He said the construction of the port in Kudat was viable because of its location and geographical factors.

Bung, who is also Deputy Chief Minister, said a proper port in Kudat would complement the ongoing Pan-Borneo project and bring economic and social growth.

“We are also looking at developing Kudat as a new city so these projects are timely,” he said after attending an excellence awards ceremony for the Sabah Ports Board here Tuesday (Jan 25).

He said neighbouring districts and small towns would benefit from these developments as well.

The Kudat Port project was mooted by the previous Parti Warisan-led state government in 2019.
