Sedco to build RM30m resort in Semporna

The Sabah Economic Development Corporation (SEDCO) proposes to build a RM30 million holiday resort in Semporna, Sabah's east coast.

Chairman Datuk Mohd Ariffin Arif said the project to be undertaken by SEDCO subsidiary, Sabah Urban Development Corporation Sdn Bhd (SUDC), was currently studying the resort's layout plan.

"We want the layout plan for the one-storey resort to be unique and creative, from an aerial view the resort will look like "lepa-lepa" (a type of canoe made by hollowing a tree trunk).

“The new resort will provide the impetus for tourism development in Sabah, particularly the tourism sector in Semporna,” he told reporters after opening a property exhibition hosted by Sabah Urban Development Corporation.

Mohd Ariffin said since SUDC was set up 38 years ago, it had helped the state government implement development projects state-wide, including building shophouses, to help uplift the socio-economic status of Bumiputeras via property ownership at competitive prices.

He said SUDC was also building Darvel Bay Plaza, the biggest shopping mall in Lahad Datu, costing about RM40 million.

Earlier, in his speech, Mohd Ariffin hoped the property exhibition would help SUDC reach out to more buyers and to the people to know SEDCO's roles and contributions through SUDC.

“I hope this exhibition will have a positive impact on property buyers and local economic development," he said.

The state government through SEDCO was determined to ensure that the people tasted development via provision of industrial and commercial areas and housing and tourism projects.
