The state of Sarawak has introduced the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE), with investment in the aluminium, the polysilicon, and minerals-based industries as well as agriculture including aquaculture and halal.[clarification needed] SCORE singles out 10 key industries for development. These include tourism, oil, aluminium, metals, glass, fishing, aquaculture, livestock, forestry, and palm oil. Investors are being drawn to the region because it is rich in energy resources, with an energy potential of 28,000 MW, of which 20,000 MW are inhydropower, 5,000 MW in coal-fired plants, and the remaining 3,000 MW in other energy sources including biofuel. This allows Sarawak to price its energy competitively and encourage investments in power generation and energy-intensive industries that will stimulate strong industrial development in the corridor. Sarawak has an abundance of natural resources. LNG and petroleum Sarawak is also one of the world's largest exporters of tropical hardwood timber and is the major contributor to Malaysian exports.
