Soft open­ing of Tawau UTC at Tan­jong Mar­ket

- Tawau

TAWAU: The com­mu­nity here will stand to ben­e­fit from the var­i­ous ser­vices pro­vided by de­part­ments and pri­vate sec­tors fol­low­ing the soft open­ing of Tawau Ur­ban Trans­for­ma­tion Cen­tre (UTC) at the Tan­jong Mar­ket.

As­sis­tant Min­is­ter of Re­source De­vel­op­ment and In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy, Datuk Hamisa Sa­mat, said the com­mu­nity will now find it con­ve­nient to go to the var­i­ous gov­ern­ment de­part­ments and pri­vate sec­tor of­fices in one build­ing.

This, she said, will save time as they do not have to go to other de­part­ments lo­cated at other ar­eas as in the past.

Hamisa said, the UTC is also a part of the Blue Ocean Strat­egy in­tro­duced to el­e­vate ser­vice qual­ity through strate­gic co­op­er­a­tion be­tween gov­ern­ment agen­cies and pri­vate sec­tors.

The UTC at Tan­jong Mar­ket started op­er­at­ing at lev­els 2 and 6 yes­ter­day and will op­er­ate from Mon­day to Sun­day from 8 am to 9 pm ex­cept on pub­lic hol­i­day.

The gov­ern­ment de­part­ments and agen­cies op­er­at­ing at the UTC cur­rently are the Im­mi­gra­tion De­part­ment, Water­works De­part­ment, Land and Sur­vey De­part­ment, Tawau Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil, Na­tional Regis­tra­tion De­part­ment, Per­badanan Pin­ja­man Sabah, Road and Trans­port De­part­ment and the UTC Man­age­ment of­fice. There is also a den­tal clinic, ATM ma­chines and po­lice per­son­nel po­si­tioned at the UTC.

The cen­tre pro­ject started on May 25 this year and was com­pleted on July 25.

The soft open­ing was jointly of­fi­ci­ated Hamisa, State EPU (Sabah) direc­tor Datuk Os­man Ja­mal, Tawau dis­trict po­lice chief ACP Fadil Mar­sus, TMC sec­re­tary Joseph Pang and Youth and Sports Min­istry dis­trict head Jamil Ji­lap.
