"Through this initiative, we hope to build a strategic and lasting cooperation in order to create a high impact local furniture industry besides focusing on human capital to groom a pool of young designers. This is to ensure that Sarawak is capable of creating a brand for its furniture with local motives that could penetrate the global market"
Prof Datuk Dr Mohamad Kadim Suaidi Vice Chansellor - UNIMAS
"Last year, Sarawak registered RM6.6 billion in export revenue from timber and timber products. Furniture sector however contributed merely RM20 million. Through this collaboration, we hope to groom a pool of young furniture designers among university students to elicit competitive furniture designs for export markets. STIDC will use this platform to produce furniture using planted forest resources like Acacia"
Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah Minister of Industrial And Entrepreneur Development - Sarawak
"We hope by using more of our own designs, we will increase revenue in this industry. By 2020, value-added products are targeted to account for 60% with primary products making up 40%. Currently, the ratio stands at 44% and 56% respectively"
