SHAREDA: Government and private sector collaboration crucial to recovery

According to the Sabah State Government release, the lowering of foreign ownership threshold from RM1 million to RM600,000 with effect from 1 April 2022, as well as to include commercial suites and properties under construction are moves well received by SHAREDA. In addition to that, the removal of clause 6.3 which requires the prior approval by Pejabat Hasil Bumi would positively facilitate the sale of the property to foreigners.
“The introduction of our own Sabah-MM2H scheme would further encourage more investment into Sabah when the Asian markets are fully open by next year. By then, developers and state government agencies should join forces to promote Sabah in overseas markets such as Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea and China” says Datuk Chua.
