Sibu In The Blue Ocean - Part 18

Tan Kee Hian's vision for agri-business hub in Sibu is really a motivation for Sibuians. With Sibu blessed with huge arable land, agri-business provides a hope for Sibu.

Kee Hian in his talk viewed Sibu as potentially viable to be:

1. A recognised Centre of Excellence/Knowledge for agri-business in Malaysia and the region.
2. Food and agri products have potentials to become a major engine of economic growth and social development for Sibu and Sarawak.
3. Some Sibu-based thriving agri-business corporations.
4.View Sibu as having young people with perceptions of agri-business as an attractive career.

Sibu business community should not do the traditional type of business start ups. When a business is good - immediately 10 similar businesses start to compete with one another. Look at the Video centres 15 years ago. So many started and none really did extremely well. Then the computer games started and there was a mushrooming of them every where.
I think there should also be some control of licences given out to help the new businesses to succeed or take off at least. I am not talking about monopoly here.
