About The State Planning Unit

The Director


Thank you for your time to get to know the people that make up Sarawak Government's State Planning Unit (SPU) and what we do.

As the Director of the Unit, I overlook and coordinate all facets of strategic planning that involve the present and future development of the Sarawak. I am assisted by the ablest individuals within the State's Civil Service, and given the breadth of our scope we engage officers with experiences on and off the grounds that vary from dispute resolution to public economics. I am proud to say that SPU's contributions have always concreted our reputation as the de facto think tank for the State.

For the purposes of practicality, this official website for the SPU highlights our involvement in three critical development drivers, namely (1) the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE), (2) the 10th Malaysia Plan and (3) our foray into Social and Environmental Impact Assessment procedures. However, this is by no means an exhaustive list of what we do. On the right sidebar, you will find the breakdown of sectors, grouped together under four encompassing categories.

We will also endeavour to give timely updates on our researches and analyses to the public. I encourage you to bookmark our page and tell your family and friends about this Sarawak Government website.





Yours truly,

Datu* Haji Ismawi Haji Ismuni
State Planning Unit
Chief Minister's Department

*Datu ( IPA pronunciation /dɑ:to?(k)/ ) is a title given to senior Government Officers for exemplary services as conferred by the Head of State of Sarawak, while Haji denotes a Muslim individual who has performed the hajj pilgrimage in Mecca. As Malays commonly have patronymic names, it is acceptable convention to address the Director as 'Datu Ismawi'.
