Di dalam ucapan perasmian beliau, YAB Ketua Menteri Sarawak telah menyatakan bahawa sekarang adalah masa yang tepat untuk penambahan aset baru di Negeri Sarawak memandangkan keluasan perairan Negeri Sarawak yang sebanyak 39% daripada keluasan perairan negara adalah cukup luas. Penambahan aset Maritim Malaysia ini dapat membantu melonjakkan pembangunan ekonomi Negeri Sarawak khususnya dari aspek keselamatan, pelancongan dan perikanan secara tidak langsung. Beliau turut menyatakan kesudian Kerajaan Negeri Sarawak untuk mendahulukan dana bagi pembinaan kapal-kapal baru Maritim Malaysia Wilayah Sarawak melalui Bank Pembangunan Negeri Sarawak yang baru ditubuhkan jika perlu.

  1. Yup, Borneo Post put up an article dated Dec 4th, Swk CM officiated the launch. Unfortunately I can’t find any pictures that shown the numbers of the NGPC.

    BTW Sri Aman is a parliamentary seat, MP is Deputy Home Minister.

    Yes it’s the same like other APMM boats named after parliamentary seats1

  2. The next KM “parliamentary seat” can be Pulai, Kimanis or Kota Marudu. I bet it will be any names from Sabah assuming 4543 to be home port there, those in cabinet likely, ruled out opposition seats.

  3. the other MMEA boats

    3903 KM Cekal (lang kuik PZ4)
    3912 KM Bijak (harimau belian PZ6)
    2220 KM Siagut (ex PA)
    cannot see the number of the boat behind it…

  4. “Beliau turut menyatakan kesudian Kerajaan Negeri Sarawak untuk mendahulukan dana bagi pembinaan kapal-kapal baru Maritim Malaysia Wilayah Sarawak melalui Bank Pembangunan Negeri Sarawak yang baru ditubuhkan jika perlu”

    Yup, you read that right. There is a dire need for more vessels to patrol Sarawak water and this should be a great opportunity for the MMEA brass to put their proposal. This is a cash rich state, and they will not be in a hurry to submit the invoices to Putrajaya. One thing for sure though, the priority for vessels are going to be for the states water.

  5. Sarawak has decent yet underrated shipbuilding industry. I hope if Sarawak is willing to lend the money to mmea, they should include building the vessel in Sarawak

    Other states should follow suits as per Sarawak state government to finance the MMEA vessel.

    One state sponsor one vessel. Each vessel will be station within the state boundary.

    Perhaps we can see in the future KM Shah Alam, KM Bandar Hilir, KM Seremban and etc.
