SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Betong, Sarawak

Betong is a town in Betong Division in Sarawak, lying in the Saribas area. It used to be placed under the district of Sri Aman. Betong division is located between three main rivers, Batang Lupar, Batang Saribas and Batang Kelaka, covering an area of 4,180 km2. By October 2011, the population was nearly 94,000, the majority being Ibans, followed by Malays, Chinese and Melanau, while the remaining are other races. Main areas are farming and fishing but there are some who work in the public and private sectors as well as business; as a way to ensure the development of human capital to meet the demands of Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy and other major projects in the State, major investments are made in the development of educational facilities like vocational schools and polytechnics. This is expected to encourage more local and foreign investors to come to Betong and explore opportunities they never knew Betong had. In recognition of Betong’s rich history, rapid growth and contribution to Sarawak's economy, it was accorded Division status in 2002.

It was selected to become the administrative division centre. The areas of administration include the Betong District. Betong has been expanded to cover the Small District of Maludam, under the jurisdiction of the Sri Aman District. Betong is acknowledged by many as the place; this paved the way for Ibans in other areas to educate themselves.
