SANDAKAN is expected to made a city between August and October, said Sabah Deputy Chief Minister Bung Moktar Radin.
He said the upgrading, which was slated for earlier this year, had to be postponed due to various factors.
“Now, Sandakan is ready. The Sandakan Municipal Council said they are ready for the implementation (to city status). Of course, this would improve Sandakan’s economy and we will implement new plans,” he told reporters after closing the Keluarga Malaysia Carnival last night.
According to Bung, among the plans is to boost tourism and the participation of small entrepreneurs.
“For example, perhaps we will build a waterfront like in Kota Kinabalu and that will attract tourists,” he added. – Bernama, June 20, 2022.
