Sarawak to establish first bio-industrial park

KUCHING: Sarawak will set up its first bio-industrial park, through Sarawak Biodiversity Centre (SBC). Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said the park in Samarahan would take up the challenge of bringing in new investments from across the globe to produce bio-related goods. “I see that SBC has played a vital role through its documentation of traditional knowledge and collaboration campaigns with key players in research and development to leverage on biodiversity discoveries that can be commercialised,” he said in a speech, read by Education, Science and Technological Research Minister Dato Sri Michael Manyin during SBC’s 21st anniversary dinner on Friday.
