KUCHING: Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg yesterday received a courtesy call from a delegation from Dongjin Semichem of South Korea.

Chairman and CEO Boo-Sup Lee led the delegation of the company’s top officials.

“The company, a confirmed investor in Sarawak, is a well-known manufacturer of materials for flat panel display and semi-conductors, materials for alternative energy sources and foaming agents,” said a statement from the Chief Minister’s Office.

Earlier, Abang Johari also received a courtesy call from key officials of OCIM Sdn Bhd, a Korean company that operates a polysilicon plant in Samalaju Industrial Park in Bintulu.

The company officials led by president and CEO Hu Kwan gave the Chief Minister an overview of OCIM’s current investment in Sarawak.

They also briefed him on the company’s new investment plans.

OCIM’s production facility in Bintulu produces 14,000 metric tonnes of polysilicon annually and has over 700 employees.
