Why Sarawak, Malaysia?
1) Governmental support
This programme is initiated organized and launched by the Malaysian Government. It is therefore, a programme, which the Government will continuously work to ensure its success.
2) Standard of living
Malaysia has one of the highest standards of living in the region with all the modern infrastructure and facilities in place.
3) Cost of living
Cost of living is one of the lowest in Asia and will remain so for a very long time. This is achieved through the Government’s efficient monitoring of the economy in ensuring that inflation is kept low at all times and thereby also the prices of goods and services.
Borneo and therefore Sarawak is a tropical state with an equatorial climate. It is hot and humid throughout the year with average daily temperatures ranging from 23°C during the early hours of the morning to 32°C during the day. There are two monsoon seasons. Despite the monsoon seasons, the climate in Sarawak remains fairly stable throughout the year.
In spite of Sarawak’s vast expanse, its major towns and cities are well connected by transportation routes. Sarawak has a modern and fully equipped port and airport facilities for international and domestic linking, as well as a road network system connecting all the major towns within Sarawak as well as Sabah and neighbouring countries, Brunei and Indonesia. The Trans-Borneo Highway connects Kuching to all major cities in Sarawak, and carries on through to the neighbouring state of Sabah through Brunei. Most major towns and cities offer a variety of public transportation including buses, taxis and limousine services. Bus services are also available for those wishing to travel within the state from town to town, or even internationally to Indonesia (Pontianak) and Brunei. River transportation system is an important means of transportation for passengers and goods to large proportions of the population of the state. Express boat services utilise the many waterways in land to get to more rural areas inaccessible by road.
The ruling Government is the longest serving freely elected Government in the world. It is a Government representing all the races, religions, cultures, etc. found in Malaysia. Sarawak is a state in the confederation of the states in Malaysia. A Chief Minister governs Sarawak state. In fact, Malaysia is one of the most politically stable countries in the world.
The rule of law is one of the fundamentals in Malaysia’s constitution. Everyone is subjected to the law and also equal before the law. Malaysia practices basically the British system of justice with an independent reliable and dependable judiciary.
