Labour Market


With around three quarters of the State population aged below 40 years, Sarawak has a young, productive and trainable workforce.

Sarawak maintains an excellent standard of education centred around high quality international schools, colleges, polytechnics and universities. The English language is widely used, and educational and training institutions are continually developed to meet the growing needs of industry.

Sarawak’s labour force can provide educated, skilled, semi-skilled, and young workers to meet the needs of a high-technology business environment.
