The event was graced by the presence of Sarawak's Premier, the Right Honourable Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri (Dr) Abang Haji Abdul Rahman Zohari Bin Tun Datuk Abang Haji Openg.
The day, themed 'Forests and Innovation, New Solutions for a Better World', was marked by a significant moment as the Premier planted the 35 millionth tree. Additionally, he presented the Certificate of Achievement to Sarawak Planted Forest Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of STIDC as Sarawak’s Top Contributor (Private Agencies Category) under the National 100 Million Tree Planting Campaign. The certificate was received by Haji Zainal Abidin Bin Haji Abdullah, General Manager of STIDC.
Demonstrating their commitment to the 'Greening Malaysia Programme', the Sarawak government aims to plant 35 million trees by 2025, contributing to the broader goal of planting 100 million trees by the same year.
The event also featured exhibitions by participating agencies showcasing forest restoration, industrial innovation, digital forestry, and various projects from the Innovative & Creative Circles (ICC).
Moreover, STIDC and the Malaysian Community Care Foundation Resources Sdn Bhd took a significant step forward by exchanging Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) documents for the Proposed Collaboration for Sarawak Bamboo Project.
The Premier's visit to the STIDC's bamboo trial pilot project at Sabal exemplified the corporation's commitment to advancing sustainable forestry practices and innovative solutions in line with the theme of the International Day of Forests 2024.
