Neighbourhood Review


Kota Samarahan is one of the developing suburbs of Kuching, which is located about 30 km south-east of the capital city, one can reach here via the Kuching-Samarahan Expressway.

This highway also links Kota Samarahan with major industrial areas of Pending, Demak Laut and Sama Jaya. Due to the increasing population here, the road is currently undergoing expansion in anticipation of increased traffic.

As for the region's economy, agriculture is still the main contributor. However, it is said that the light industries are gradually moving in. Another service sector that is quickly becoming significant in Kota Samarahan is the education related-sector. This has made the place a main education hub for Sarawak and is officially known as 'Town of Knowledge'.

Due to this, a number of higher learning institutions can be found in the area, such as the Universiti Malaysia Sarawak, Universiti Teknologi MARA (Sarawak), the Institute of Teacher Education (ITE) Tun Abdul Razak Campus, and the Kota Samarahan Industrial Training Institute (ILPKS).

This has resulted in commercial developments slowly mushrooming within the area to cater for the increasing population, like the first shopping mall in the area - The Summer Shopping Mall, and the upcoming Summer Lagoon Water Theme Park.

Did you know?

A consumer price index (CPI) measures changes in the price level of a market basket of consumer goods and services purchased by households. (Wikipedia)

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) line shows an increment in prices of essential goods on a yearly basis, while the Percentage Changes line shows the level of changes in price increments over the years. For example, a dip in the CPI line may indicate a low level of price increment as compared to the previous year while a surge in CPI line shows a high level of price increment as compared to the previous year.

The above graph shows 1.754% of price changes in essential goods such as rice, meat and tobacco between the years 2011 and 2012, while increasing in difference to 1.916% in 2013. Prices of essential goods then increasing to 2.82% in the year 2014 while surging by 1.554% in 2015.

While the prices of essential goods have shown a variation in the Percentage Changes, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) on the other hand indicates a reality of ever increasing prices in essential goods with increments between the years 2011 - 2015 at 102.7 in 2011, 104.4 in 2012, 106.4 in 2013, 109.4 in 2014, 111.1 in 2015.
