The government seized the island after Funaddoo Tuna Products Private Limited were unable to settle their outstanding loans, hence which was why the government sought potential corporations to take over the processing facility. 

Mr. Fauzy mentioned that as a result of the lengthy idle-period, most establishments on the island have rundown. Moreover, MIFCO will be involved in heavy renovation before the facility can be brought back to operation. 

In addition, Mr. Fauzy concluded that the entire renovation process will likely conclude after 10 months.
