well,for those of you who aren't familiar with this,SCORE actually stands for Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy.this project was launched by the government of Malaysia on the 11th of February 2008.i don't wish to write much about the whole matter,so let me make it short.
so,SCORE based on what i've got from wikipedia,
The Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy or SCORE is a new development corridor in central Sarawak state, Malaysia. It is one of the five regional development corridors being developed throughout the country. SCORE is a major initiative undertaken to develop the Central Region and transform Sarawak into a developed State by the year 2020. It aims to achieve the goals of accelerating the State's economic growth and development, as well as improving the quality of life for the people of Sarawak.
i believe should this project is implemented well enough, without too much corruption or better, no corruption at all, should this project achieve its objectives, Sarawak can keep more of her brilliant citizens who at the moment, are leaving her because lack of opportunities here in our Bumi Kenyalang. It has been too long indeed, where we see one after another, our great minds are being used in other places, including west malaysia, eventhough clear at the moment, Sarawak is in dire needs for more people with the right minds and skills to help bring it forward as a developed state.
what more, it is saddening because judging from the vast amount of resources that our Sarawak posses, looking at the poverty rate throughout the state, this reality really makes us angry. i was at saratok last week (it's a place only an hour away from sarikei), celebrating gawai.while i was at my long house, i asked some of the seniors there who could be around 80 to 90 years old and that said,more and more of the younger generation are leaving the long house to go to the city, and look for more promising opportunities out there.well,they're not wrong,judging from what saratok, roban (a neighboring town) and betong have to offer.not much.very little and simply not enough.while Malaysia tries to project itself as one of the best developing nations with a very encouraging economy,however,Sarawak,especially the central part and also the rural areas,still lagged behind,could be a 100 years behind.we need more good roads to connect one town with another, so that along the road,more development could be carried out and the land values would rise.the sarawak government has to provide more economic opportunities to their people, because it's really a win-win situation.if the people everywhere in Bumi kenyalang is well educated, informed and more business-minded,we could be among the best and help bringing the development of Sarawak to a greater height.
so,hopefully,SCORE would turn out a success and would help retain her best people in the state and help developing the state.because currently,because of it being too neglected,Sarawak is losing her best people very fast and this trend is worrying.lucky miri found oil.Had it not found it,well,doesn't look good wouldn't it? :)
