SIBU: Sibu Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) has for the first time won the Best UTC award for the Town category.

UTC Sibu was built at a cost of RM30mil and started its operation on March 15, 2016 operating at Levels 8, 9 and 10 of the Sibu Central Market building.

The departments and agencies housed in the UTC included Immigration Department, police, National Registration Department, Treasury Department, Sibu District Office, Welfare Department, Sibu Municipal Council (SMC), Sibu Rural District Council (SRDC), Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB), Sibu Water Board 1Malaysia Clinic, Road Transport Department and National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN).

It is opened daily from 8am to 9pm and closed on public holidays. The award presentation ceremony was held recently in Seremban.

Acting secretary of Sibu Municipal Council (SMC), Jong Thian Puk, who collected the award, said there were a total of 11 UTC’s in the country under the town category but only nine had submitted their entries for the award.

“There were many criteria in the judging for the award. Among them were general cleanliness, efficiency, number of visitors, daily collection by the respective departments and agencies in the UTC,” he added.

Jong said the judges, who were from the various government departments in the country selected by the Finance Ministry, were in Sibu for two days to conduct the judging.

“I believe we were outstanding in most of the criteria and that is why we were selected as winners for this award,” he said.

Jong said the other remarkable feature of Sibu UTC is that it has been very well patronised by the people. On an average, he said Sibu UTC recorded 54,000 visitors a month.

“In the first six months of this year, we have an average of 54,000 visitors a month while others could only achieve about 30,000 visitors monthly,” he added.
