Shophouses for Economic Development

From, the Malaysian National News Agency: "The Sabah Economic Development Corporation (Sedco) will be introducing an affordable shophouse scheme to help raise the economy of Bumiputera entrepreneurs in the state.  Chairman of Sedco, Datuk Mohd Arifin Arif, said for a start, 10 units will be built in Membakut early next year before the scheme is expanded by stages to all other districts in Sabah.  'We will identify suitable locations in other districts to build the affordable shophouses and hopefully all Bumiputera entrepreneurs will benefit from this.'"  Full article here.  If any reader can find out more information about this program, it would be much appreciated.  (Photo credit:
