State to Sell Off 14 Entities: The eastern Malaysian state of Sarawak has chosen 14 companies or projects to be sold to the public within two years, the Star newspaper said. The diverse projects include seven companies now within the stable of the Sarawak State Economic Development Corp., plantations and land developments and ferry operations under the purview of the Public Works Department. Sarawak is home to Malaysia’s largest single electrical power generating project, the $5.9-billion Bakun hydroelectric plant. That project is on hold pending the completion of an environmental impact report.
