LABUAN: Labuan Corporation will continue utilising the Labuan Development Blueprint 2030 to further drive the island’s economic growth.
Quoting its newly-minted chief executive officer Dr Fary Akmal Osman, Bernama said the blueprint would be tailored to the island’s current development needs and based on a sound understanding of the government’s financial situation.
The blueprint which was launched January last year, sets the direction for the holistic development of the duty-free island, focusing on three major areas of economic, social and physical development.
According to her, Labuan has vast potential which had not been fully explored such as in the field of education and tourism and efforts are in the pipeline to have the Petronas training centre be established.
Embracing a more sustainable tourism sector by constructing various tourism infrastructures and facilities will add value to the lucrative sector.
