...Your Global Investment Hub
The Sabah State Government set up POIC Lahad Datu in 2005 to spearhead the development of palm oil downstream processing to add value to its 1.55 million hectares of oil palm plantations, to create jobs and business opportunities. Apart from palm oil/oil palm, POIC Lahad Datu is also poised to attract investments in port & logistics, biomass, bio refineries, oil & gas and related small and medium enterprises.
Aside from investments directly linked to palm oil, POIC Lahad Datu also offers business opportunities in a wide range of supporting industries needed for a sector which contributes approximately RM4 billion in State revenue per annum and employs 130,000.
POIC Lahad Datu is incorporated within the Sabah Development Corridor which aims to propel the State to developed status by 2025. To-date, 2,000 acres in POIC Lahad Datu have been developed with infrastructure and utilities. The industrial park is planned to cover more than 4,400 acres of integrated industrial complex designed to cater light, medium and heavy industries.
The Liquid and Dry Bulk terminals and barge berth are presently in operation, while the Container Terminal (with a capacity of up to 250,000 TEUs) is being commissioned for operation in Q4/2018.
POIC Lahad Datu is envisaged to be not only a catalyst for the development of Sabah, but also the resource-rich BIMP-EAGA (Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area) which supplies the global market with palm oil, cocoa, rubber, timber and minerals,including coal and petroleum.
