Johor Strategic Development Plan To Be Launched In November
JOHOR BAHARU, July 19 (Bernama) -- The Johor Strategic Development Plan will be launched in November to spur economic development in the state, says Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin.
He said the comprehensive plan would have five focus areas including the development of the food sector.
"With the development plan, the state government will ensure Johore will remain competitive not only within the country but also in the region," he told reporters after launching the Frontier Industrial Park (Second Phase) in Taman Desa Cemerlang here today.
Mohamed Khaled said rapid economic development would ensure the state remained attractive for investors.
On the setting up of the industrial park by WB Land Sdn Bhd, he said it would lure investors as it has added attractive features such as gated community, close circuit television security, gymnasium and jogging tracks amid environmental friendly surroundings which was not only attractive to investors but employees too.
"This development is different from the rest. In the world of competitive investments, investors are very selective, choosy and want the best," Mohamed Khaled said.
He added that twhe industrial park was strategically located near the Johor Port and can be the trend setter for others who want to build similar industrial parks in the state.
The second phase of the industrial park is sprawled over 25 hectares of land and has a gross development value of RM354 million and is expected to be completed by year-end.
