Capability (4) "Sibu Is Not An Island"
Tan Kee Hian provoked the thinking of Sibuians with Capability (4) "Sibu Is Not An Island".
Sibu Is Not An Island simply refers to Sibu as not being isolated. In the observations of Kee Hian, Sibu has the following potentials:
1. Like Singapore, not much natural resources but:
-Convenient central location
-Surrounded by rich hinterland
-And favourable track record
2. Become the "orchestra conductor" or "systems integrator" for resources from and activities occurring beyond Sibu.
3. Learn how to work with other cities, towns, and villages.
4. Be comfortable with a win-win arrangement:
-Smaller slice of a bigger pie
