Sabah Customs Headquarters To Get New Premises

KOTA KINABALU, July 16 (Bernama) -- The Royal Malaysian Customs headquarters in Sabah would be getting a new building.

Customs director general Datuk Seri Khazali Ahmad said construction of the premises adjacent to the Putrajaya Mini Federal Complex in Likas would start early next year.

"The new building would replace the old headquarters at Tanjung Aru Plaza," he told reporters after breaking fast last night with officers and staff at the Customs housing, Al-Abid surau in Sepanggar here.

Khazali said a new housing block was also being built to replace the old building which had been declared unsafe.

The new block comprising 250 units, costing almost RM60 million, is sited near the old building and scheduled to be completed in 26 months.

Meanwhile, he said the department would continue to expound to the masses on the Goods and Services Tax (GST) to ensure they fully understood the workings of the system.
