Though it may be true that international brands would not invest in a place if there is no potential, but certainly it cannot be a yardstick to gage a place status. Even Kerteh town has a McDonald's (with a drive-thru).

KUALA TERENGGANU: Metered taxis will be introduced in Kuala Terengganu by June to complement the town’s elevation to city status.

It is learnt that the officers from the state economic development corporation were working on the details of the metered taxis, and appropriate routes and charges.

Thirty such taxis will be in the first phase of the project, servicing mostly the airport-city route.

The state government has allocated RM12mil to help taxi operators replace their fleets with new vehicles.




New look: Mokthar officiating the ceremony to introduce the new look for the Kuala Terengganu taxis yesterday.


Kuala Terengganu will be the 12th city in the country, after Kuala Lumpur, Johor Baru, Ipoh, Shah Alam, Malacca, Alor Star, Petaling Jaya, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching Utara, Kuching Selatan and Miri.

With the city status, the state government hopes to attract more investors and tourists here.

Kuala Terengganu lagged behind other state capitals in term of development but has had a major facelift after projects were initiated in recent years.

On Thursday, State Secretary Datuk Mokhtar Nong launched the new look for the taxis here.

These first fleet of 30 taxis will serve the huge number of visitors expected to arrive here to witness the declaration of Kuala Terengganu as a city on Jan 1, officiated by Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh.

Mokthar said the state would witness major events next year including the Visit Terengganu Year 2008 and the Sukma Games.

i've heard a lecturer said during my uni time that to know how developed a place is, count the number of banks.

[size]Terengganu enjoying better quality of life, says Idris[/size]
Saturday January 12, 2008
TheStar

KUALA TERENGGANU: The people of Terengganu are living much better lives now compared to several years ago, said Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh.

He said although he did not have the statistics, the state believed there had been much progress and the poverty rate had been drastically reduced.

“Indicators are big increases in car sales, as shown by traffic jams that are common in the state capital, and alms given at mosques have quadrupled,” he told reporters after chairing the state executive council’s weekly meeting here recently.

Idris said an indicator that the quality of life of people in Terengganu had improved was sales in excess of RM17mil a month at a hypermarket that opened here a year ago.

The Companies Commission of Malaysia also registered more businesses in 2007 with 432 new companies being formed compared to 346 in the previous year, he said.

He added that all the signs showed the state was headed for even greater progress. – Bernama

Direct flights to regional cities

The Star, Thursday January 17, 2008

KUALA TERENGGANU: There will be direct flights between Kuala Terengganu and cities like Hong Kong, Bangkok, Shanghai, Singapore and Macau from November if plans to turn the new Kuala Terengganu International Airport into a second low-cost carrier (LLC) hub materialise.

The state government is in the midst of convincing several low-cost carriers from Singapore, Bangkok, the Philippines and China to use the new airport as their regional gateway.

State Infrastructure Development, Amenity and Communication Committee official Datuk Wan Hisham Wan Salleh told The Star that talks were in the final stages to have these carriers start their operations here.

“Tourists from these countries can fly directly to Kuala Terengganu and head straight to holiday isles here without transiting in Kuala Lumpur,” he said yesterday.

Wan Hisham said the current runway was being extended to accommodate Boeing 747s. Work

is expected to be completed

by November.

Currently, the airport can cater for the Boeing 777 and Airbus.

The multi-storey terminal with aero-bridge is also nearing completion.

On the present number of flights, Wan Hisham said the number was still limited.

“There are times where the flights are not fully booked but on most occasions there are huge number of passengers,”

“We can suggest to the airlines to increase their flights during peak days but this is their prerogative,” he said.

He said the projected increase in flights was also in line with the development of the East Coast Economic Region where new projects will witness the arrival of investors, some of whom would want to make day trips.

Meanwhile, Wan Hisham said call metered taxis will be introduced in Kuala Terengganu city, very soon.

He said 30 taxis will be equipped with such facilities under the first phase and the fleet size would be increased gradually.

“These taxis will come under Cas Ligas, a state government-owned company that manages Inter-City buses,” he added.

He said the company is also tasked with initiating a boat cruise service along the scenic Sungai Terengganu, connecting Shahbandar jetty to the Islamic Civilisation Park in Pulau Wan Man.

PAYA BUNGA MALL @ KT

Shopping mall to open in KT by mid year

KUALA TERENGGANU: The first shopping mall here is poised to begin operations by mid year, just a few months after the opening of a pioneer hypermarket in Terengganu last week.

The Paya Bunga mall situated at the heart of the town was supposed to commence operations a decade ago but hit a snag due to technical hitches and bureaucracy.

The state is hoping to lure a renowned mall management company to participate as an anchor tenant of the multi-storey complex where a cineplex is also expected make a debut after the Chinese New Year.

The mall located close to the main express bus complex and Government buildings will also allot space for a family amusement park.

With the opening, local folks who have been waiting to enjoy an extravagant shopping mall can shop here without travelling to Kuantan or Kota Baru.

There are four supermarkets in the heart of the town but none offer a mall concept.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh said the opening would quash the perception that Kuala Terengganu was a dull town.

“We have transformed Kuala Terengganu and the state as whole with more paradigm changes,” he told The Star here.

Theme park for people of all faiths, says state govt

Sunday February 3, 2008


KUALA TERENGGANU: The Islamic Civilisation theme park is open to all, including non-Muslims, the state government said yesterday.

State Infrastructure, Public Amenity and Communication Committee chairman Datuk Wan Hisham Wan Salleh stressed that the park, which will be declared open today by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, is not exclusively for Muslims but for people of all faiths.

“This is a theme park concept and anyone can tour it as it is an attraction featured in the Visit Terengganu Year this year,” he said yesterday.


Terengganu’s latest icon: A local ferry fondly known as ‘Bot Penambang’ adorned with Barisan Nasional and Umno flags cruising along Sungai Terengganu passing the Crystal Mosque at Pulau Wan Man in Kuala Terengganu yesterday.

Wan Hisham was responding to queries by some tour operators in the Klang Valley whether they could organise tours for non-Muslims to the park.

He said the park features replicas of 12 mosques, the Al-Hambra of Spain and Taj Mahal of India.

The 23ha park, costing RM250mil is also a project under the East Coast Economic Region (ECER)

Islamic hotel for Terengganu


A model of the Wakaf Hotel in Kuala Terengganu, due for completion in 21/2 years.


KUALA TERENGGANU: The country will have its first ever Islamic-themed hotel here within the next 2 1/2 years.

The RM20 million three-star Wakaf Hotel will include separate swimming pools for both sexes, built under a canopy, rooms provided with copies of the Quran and prayer mats, among others.

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, in announcing this yesterday, said the hotel would help solve the limited number of rooms here and cater to religious functions.

“It can help woo tourists, local and foreign, especially from Muslim countries, besides accommodating officials from religious departments,” he said after witnessing the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the state Religious and Malay Culture Council (Maidam) and the Wakaf, Zakat and Haji Department here.

The seven-storey hotel will be built on a 0.7ha site, near the Masjid Sultan Zainal Abidin or “Masjid Putih", and the Kuala Terengganu City Council bus station.

Comprising 182 rooms, the hotel will also house two dorms, five seminar halls and three retail units.

Maidam and the Wakaf, Zakat and Haji Department will jointly operate and manage the hotel.
