KUCHING, Aug 17 (Bernama) — Sarawak is exploring the possibility of having technical cooperation with Bosnia-Herzegovina, particularly in the development of energy resources and halal hub in the state.
Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud recently led a high-powered delegation to Bosnia-Herzegovina with a view to engage their technical expertise for the state’s hydro and coal mining sectors as well as the Tanjung Manis halal hub, which was being developed under the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy.
“Negotiations are still in the early stages,” said a statement issued by the Chief Minister’s Office Tuesday.
