Abang Johari received the resolutions and proposed action plan from DUBS president Datu Abang Helmi Ikhwan. MIRI: The Sarawak government, through Petroleum Sarawak Berhad (Petros) is taking a more holistic approach by working with established industry players such as Petronas and Shell, in an effort to manage the Sarawak’s oil and gas resources effectively so that it could benefit its people and state’s economy. Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said that although Sarawak government has rights over its natural resources, it may not have enough experience to manage it independently. “We are still dependent on established oil and gas establishments.

KUALA LUMPUR: Skilled local workforce has helped major oil and gas (O&G) cushion the global weak oil prices, ringgit fluctuations and foreign exchange (forex losses) over the past few years.

With the advent of tech, the race to innovate within the tech spectrum is largely focused on coming up with the “new.” From smarter algorithms, to artificial intelligence (AI), and even to augmented reality (AR) — the goal has always been to disrupt. But more than disruption and awe, today’s tech innovators are constantly coming up with ways to improve human experience. By this, we don’t just mean using tech to promote greater convenience and ease in people’s daily lives. We mean solutions that impact the very nature of people. These are solutions that help inculcate road safety discipline, democratise HR platforms for small and medium companies (SMEs), provide cheap lodging options for young people, and even ones that power human development through skills training. True, some of the most…

Dato Madani Sahari As a Sarawakian, I am aware that there has been decades-long limitation in bringing the automotive industry to Sabah and Sarawak, as the logistics factors alone make it seemingly challenging to set up an automotive manufacturing ecosystem. However, with the advent of technology and disruptions within the mobility sector, new opportunities have arisen for the people of Sabah and Sarawak. With the correct strategy, it is the right time for meaningful participation, with new comparative advantages now available for the region. MARii has long been working closely with the Australian government to develop numerous turnkey projects in electric mobility and advanced manufacturing for the benefit of Malaysians. Now, in the case of Sabah and Sarawak, an opportunity has presented itself. Firstly, the advent of online technology has…

SEPANG: The word “lifestyle” may seem out of place at an airport, but it is exactly what Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) aims to inject into its five international airports in five years. The country’s main airport operator is looking to revamp the commercial space at international airports in Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi, Penang, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching. In an interview with FMT, Mohammad Nazli Abdul Aziz, who is spearheading the commercial reset, said the exercise is about raising the standards of airport retail and realising the full potential of commercial space. “Look at other airports in the region like Singapore, South Korea and Hong Kong. Their average sales per pax (SPP) is at least two to three times more than KLIA’s,” he said. Nazli, who is also MAHB’s senior general…
