Sarawak has tourism plans for Sematan

KUCHING: The Sarawak government is to develop Sematan, a coastal village about 110km from here, into one of the state’s tourist spots.

Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud said Sematan would undergo a transformation in tourism infrastructure development and social standards of local residents there in the next five years.

“I’ve asked the State Economic Development Corporation to conduct suitable business courses for people living in Sematan and the surrounding areas,” he said in Sematan yesterday.

Taib singled out cottage and service industries as areas residents could venture into.

He said the state government was prepared to issue special business licences to Sematan residents involved in small-scale businesses in the area.
