ZON Ekonomi Khas Wilayah Ekonomi Pantai Timur (ECER SEZ) bakal menerima pelaburan baru bernilai RM620 juta menerusi pembinaan Pangkalan Bekalan Pengguna Bersama Pelbagai Guna di Taman Industri Minyak & Gas dan Logistik Tanjong Agas di Pekan, Pahang.


Pangkalan itu akan dibangunkan Oilfields Supply Center Ltd (OSC) berpangkalan di Dubai dan Tanjong Agas Supply Base & Marine Services Sdn Bhd (TASBMS) menerusi sebuah syarikat usaha sama, Tanjong Agas Oilfields Supply Centre Sdn Bhd (TAOSC). Majlis pecah tanah pembinaan pangkalan itu dirancang diadakan bulan depan dan ia dijangka beroperasi sepenuhnya pada 2013.

Pengarah Urusan TASBMS, Mohd Faidzal Ahmad Mahidin, berkata pangkalan itu akan dibangunkan di tapak seluas 101.17 hektar di pinggir laut sepanjang 1.5 kilometer dengan kedalaman air 20 meter.

“Apabila siap kelak, ia akan menyediakan perkhidmatan dan kemudahan sokongan menyeluruh untuk syarikat tempatan dan antarabangsa yang terbabit dalam operasi penerokaan, eksploitasi dan pengeluaran minyak dan gas luar pesisir perairan Malaysia serta perairan di sekitar Laut China Selatan," katanya pada majlis pemeteraian perjanjian usaha sama itu di Kuantan, semalam.

Mohd Faidzal berkata, TASBMS yakin kerjasamanya dengan OSC itu bakal memberikan impak besar kepada industri minyak dan gas di Malaysia, di samping merangsang pertumbuhan ekonomi tempatan, terutama di Pekan.

Sementara itu, Iqbal Mohammed Abdullah, berkata pembabitan OSC di Tanjung Agas bukan sekadar pelaburan perniagaan semata-mata tetapi lebih bersifat perkongsian dengan Malaysia.

“Kami mempunyai pengalaman lebih 50 tahun dalam bidang minyak dan gas dan usaha sama ini akan mencetuskan kejayaan yang diharapkan,” katanya sambil menambah syarikat usaha sama itu akan memanfaatkan kepakaran dan kemahiran teknikal OSC bagi menyumbang kepada pembangunan sektor minyak, gas dan petrokimia di kawasan ECER dan Malaysia.

High tech industries to be centred in Gambang
Monday August 22, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...sec=southneast



Fine facility:

KUANTAN: Gambang is set to be the centre of high tech industries with Malaysian Solar Resource Sdn Bhd (MSR)’s facility that produces solar photovoltaic (PV) modules used to make solar panels.

The move is also foreseen to be the main technology park in the eastern corridor.

In view of this, Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Seri Peter Chin had urged other companies to set up businesses and operations in the place and venture into the high tech industries such as MSR.

“It will help boost the economy, be it the state or country, and create job opportunities.

“The ministry is satisfied to see Gambang developing and moving in the right direction,” he said after visiting MSR’s facility here recently.

Chin added that the ministry is determined to see the development of renewable energy in the country to take off in the right step.

He said the Sustainable Energy Development Authority (Seda) had already been formed to manage and regulate activities and development in the area.

“A conducive setting is essential to promote a new industry so companies can steadily build their businesses.

“Efforts taken by MSR to venture in the industry must be praised and emulated by others.

“Renewable energy is still new but it is critical for the country and those dealing in green technology.”

Chin said that some 80% of the 70 workers in MSR are locals and this was equally important too as the country needed skilled workers in this area.

The government, he added, strongly encouraged such development in a new industry as it would further improve growth in green technology.

“It will play a significant role in giving a good boost to the economy and build a pool of skilled workers.”

Also present at the minister’s visit was MSR managing director Ong Ah Hwa.

He that MSR is a fully-owned Malaysian company and its current production capacity was 25mw and would be increased to 70mw by the fourth quarter of the year.

“Most of the products are exported as the demand is higher but the company expects to cater to at least 50% of the local market by year end after the FiT (feed-in-tariff) for the development of renewable energy becomes effective in December.

“Government projects made up the main bulk of the local market but demands from the private sector is expected to increase beginning next year,” he added.

Ong said the present investment is RM80mil, but the company had plans to expand production to accumulate capacity between 50MW and 70MW.

The expansion project would involve an aditional RM80mil and to commence in November and this would be able to meet demands of local and foreign markets.

Wenzhou to set up industrial park in Kuantan
Published: 2011/09/10
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1Xd2pH3Pv

China-based Wenzhou Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation Bureau will invest RM900 million to establish an integrated industrial park comprising logistics and warehousing facilities in the East Coast Economic Region (ECER)'s Special Zone in Kuantan, Pahang.

Through the investment, Wenzhou will have its first trading complex in the ECER, which will be located in the integrated industrial park to boost bilateral trade.

Construction of the integrated industrial park is scheduled to take off June next year and be completed in 18 months thereafter.

Wenzhou Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation Bureau and the East Coast Economic Region Development Council (ECERDC) today exchanged documents to formalise the planned investment in the special zone witnessed by International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed.

Mustapa said both parties would also collaborate to identify new areas of economic collaboration and stimulate investments.

"I hope this investment will prompt other companies from China to invest in Kuantan and other parts of the East Coast," he said after witnessing the exchange of documents between the two parties in Sri Kembangan today.

The event was part of the two-day Malaysia-China Trade and Investment International Conference 2011 which started today.

Launched by Mustapa, the conference was attended by more than 1,000 delegates from China, Dubai, Sri Lanka, Iran and Japan. More than 400 delegates are from China. Mustapa advised Chinese companies keen to undertake projects in Malaysia to use the services of the Malaysian Industrial Development Authority (MIDA) and the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE).

Mustapa, who is scheduled to meet his Chinese counterpart next month, said he would discuss the planned 55 sq kilometer industrial park to be constructed in Wenzhou as a joint-venture project between Malaysian and Chinese companies.

"The first phase of the project is expected to be completed in 2015. The proposal for the project has not been submitted," he added.

Wenzhou, dubbed the "light industry capital of China", produces 60 per cent of China's shoes and has a strong presence in apparel manufacturing.

It is also a major manufacturing centre for electrical appliances, electronic items and light machinery.

Wenzhou has established commercial centers in Brazil, Holland, United Arab Emirates, the United States and Germany.

In Malaysia, its trade centre is located in Ipoh, Perak, while its trade centre in Senai, Johor, is currently under construction.

Earlier, at the launch of the conference, Mustapa said that MITI, which has been focusing on Beijing and Shanghai, was expanding its range of business contacts in China to provinces such as Wenzhou, Yunnan and Guangxi.

"We will also work with the Hainanese, Hakka, Teochew, Fuchow and Guangxi clan associations to help us connect with their counterparts in China," he added. -- Bernama

RM900mil for ECER from China
By JOSEPH KAOS JR Sunday September 11, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...429&sec=nation

KUALA LUMPUR: China has pledged to invest RM900mil in the East Coast Economic Region (ECER), which is expected to generate 30,000 jobs.

International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed said he hoped the investment would further spur growth in the east coast.

“As you know, the east coast is an area we are working very hard to develop.

“There are many developments in west coast states like Selangor and Johor but the east coast states are still lagging behind,” he said after witnessing the exchange of documents between ECER Development Council and China-based Wenzhou Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation Bureau here yesterday.

Mustapa said he hoped that with the signing of the deal, more Chinese companies would invest in the east coast region.

“This investment will not only help create employment opportunities in the region but will also result in closer co-operation between China and Malaysia,” he said.

Mustapa also said he was currently discussing with Wenzhou city officials on a joint venture between Malaysian and Chinese companies to develop a 55 sq km industrial park in Wenzhou.

“They (Wenzhou officials) are going to submit a written proposal to me on the project, detailing the model they are suggesting for this park.

“Next week, my ministry officials will be visiting their counterparts in Beijing to discuss this matter,” he said.

ECER officials said with China's pledge, it was expected to surpass its annual investment target of RM5bil by October, bringing the total since its launch in 2007 to RM48bil.

They said an estimated 30,000 jobs in the service, manufacturing and logistics sectors would be generated by the investment.

The pledge will also see the establishment of an integrated industrial park comprising logistic and warehousing facilities at ECER's Special Economic Zone in Kuantan, Pahang.

ECER Development Council chief executive officer Datuk Jebasingam Issace John said the construction of the industrial park was expected to begin mid-next year and would take 18 months to complete.

“We are in the midst of discussing details with our Wenzhou counterparts on the project model,” he said.

Located in the southeast of Zhejiang district, Wenzhou produces 60% of China's shoes and also has a strong presence in apparel manufacturing.

It is also a major manufacturing centre for electrical appliances, electronic items and light machinery.

Also present at the signing were Wenzhou City Foreign Trade Deputy Director Zhou Zheng and Wenzhou Municipal People's Government vice mayor Xu Yufei.

ECER eyes RM10b investments
By Rupa DamodaranPublished: 2012/02/07
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1ldYy1Uge



The East Coast Economic Region (ECER) has targeted to double its investments to RM10 billion this year, underpinned by interest from top Asian communities like China.

Its industrial parks located within the Special Economic Zone (SEZ) are expected to drive these billion-ringgit investments.

The SEZ will be “our jewel in the crown” in Malaysia, says ECER Council (ECERC) chief executive officer Datuk Jebasingam Issace John.

“We expect the investments to come on board by the third quarter,” he disclosed in an interview with the Business Times.

The risks of the slowing investment flow from Europe may impact Malaysia as a whole in 2012, but John says the ECER has the added advantage of having caught the attention of the Chinese, Koreans and Japanese, who are also being encouraged to look abroad.

ECER attracts over RM9b investments in Q1
Updated: Tuesday February 28, 2012 MYT 7:54:29 PM
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...&if_height=426

PUTRAJAYA: The East Coast Economic Region (ECER) successfully attracted investments worth RM9bil in tourism, aquaculture, manufacturing and education in the first quarter of the year.

ECER Development Council Chief Executive Officer Datuk Jebasingam Issace John said the nine new projects comprise two projects worth RM5.5bil in Mersing, Johor, five projects worth RM2bil in Pahang, one project worth RM1bil in Terengganu and another one project worth RM500mil in Kelantan.

"The new investments will enhance resource-based economic activities in ECER and help create better economic opportunities for the local populace by generating new jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities," he said at the document exchange ceremony between the ECER and the investors.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin witnessed the exchanging document ceremony.

Also present were Terengganu Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said, Pahang Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob, Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman and Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop.

The nine investors include Radiant Starfish Development Sdn Bhd, Damansara Assets Sdn Bhd, Encorp Bhd, Ocean Aquatic Marine (M) Sdn Bhd and Zhanjiang Guolian Aquatic Products Co Ltd; Andaman Sea Foods (M) Sdn Bhd; Gelnas Sdn Bhd; Nilai Mahir (M) Sdn Bhd and Johnson Controls Automotive Holdings (M) Sdn Bhd and Hicom University College Sdn Bhd.

Jebasingam said the three investments already approved in the ECER are Tioxide (M) Sdn Bhd (RM275mil), East Coast Universe Smelting & Mining (M) Sdn Bhd (RM80.3mil) and Q-Porcelain Manufacturing Sdn Bhd (RM7.8mil).

In Johor, Radiant Starfish Development Bhd plans to invest RM4.2bil to develop a fully integrated eco-tourism resort known as Mersing Laguna while Damansara Assets Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Johor Corporation, will develop a resort town known as the Tanjung Leman Integrated Resort and Coastal Township in Mersing with total investment value of RM1bil.

Both investments are expected to see the transformation of Mersing into a vibrant tourism hub with upgraded facilities and amenities.

In Pahang, Encorp Bhd will develop an integrated tourism resort and international golf course in Cherating with gross development value of RM1.3bil, Andaman Sea Foods Sdn Bhd will invest RM225mil in an integrated shrimp farm in Kampung Kasing, Rompin, and Gelnas Sdn Bhd will invest RM130mil in building a halal gelatine plant in the Gambang Halal Park.

Also Nilai Mahir (M) Sdn Bhd and Johnson Controls Automotive Holdings (M) Sdn Bhd will see a total investment of RM90mil in an automotive project in the Pekan Automotive Park and HICOM University College Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of DRB-HICOM Bhd, will invest RM592.5mil to set up an automotive university college within the DRB-HICOM Automotive Hub in Pekan.

In Terengganu, Ocean Aquatic Marine (M) Sdn Bhd together with its joint venture partner, Zhanjiang Guolian Aquatic Products Co Ltd, will invest RM1bil over a five-year period in an integrated shrimp farm in Kampung Pasir Putih, Marang.

In Kelantan, Hongkew Holdings (M) Sdn Bhd will invest RM500mil to set up an integrated cement plant in Gua Musang.

Jebasingam told reporters later that more than 80 percent of the new investments announced day were from domestic investors.

"All nine investments will commence this year. The investors are ready to invest in the ECER in their respectively areas," he said.

Jebasingam said the ECERDC was set to revise upward its investment target to RM15bil this year as the investment for the first quarter had almost hit the RM10bil investment target.

"Within the first quarter of this year, we are able to get more than RM9bil. We have almost achieved our target. I have already discussed with my investment team to set RM15bil as our annual target," he said.

To date, the government has invested some RM2bil for infrastructure development in the ECER to support private sector investments.

THE development of Mersing Laguna will be carried out with strict guidelines to ensure the district's idyllic coastline and natural marine attractions is protected and preserved despite the massive dredging and reclamation work involving 809ha for the proposed project.

Sinohydro Group Ltd's chairman Fan Jixiang, who gave this assurance said his company appreciates the natural ambiance and attraction of Mersing and will adhere to the strict local and international laws in regards to environmental conservation.

"We respect Malaysia's laws and will do everything necessary for the care of the environment as Mersing Laguna is all about eco-paradise tourist destination," Fan said in an interview after witnessing the signing agreement of the RM4.2 billion contract between Synohydro Corp (M) Sdn Bhd and Radiant Starfish Marine Development Bhd in Johor Baru recently.

Also present during the ceremony were Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman and Radiant Starfish Development Bhd's president and chief executive officer Ungku Safian Abdullah.

Fan said Sinohydro will ensure the reclamation work will be timely delivered and enable the full-scale development on the man-made islands to be carried out as planned, enabling Radiant Starfish to realise its dream in making Mersing Laguna an eco-paradise destination.

He said Sinohydro, a state-owned conglomerate and is ranked among the world's top 15 international contractors by the engineering news record, decided to take part in this mammoth project due to the strong ties between the Malaysian and Chinese governments.

Sinohydro is actively involved in major contracts and business interests in 70 countries involving architectural projects, electric power investment, property and real estate as well as design and manufacture of construction equipment.

The company's current book order is estimated at RM86.72 billion (US$D27.1 billion), is also engaged in the manufacture and installation of mechanical and electrical plants, power generation, expressways, railways, harbours, airports, municipal public utilities and building industries.

"We will consciously work towards environmental sustainability through our advanced technologies and execute the work strictly in accordance with strict regulations," Fan said adding that local talents and resources would be maximised throughout the duration of the project.

He added the company's 10-year experience in Malaysia, in projects such as the building of the Bakun dam in Sarawak has encouraged it to participate in other large-scale projects such as Mersing Laguna.

He thanked Radiant Starfish for its confidence in awarding the design and built contract to his company.

Mersing Laguna, a RM22 billion high-end development is set to transform the once sleepy-town into an international class eco-tourism destination involving three man-made islands and a 36km stretch of beachfront between the Endau-Rompin and marine parks off the coast of Mersing.

The project was among the nine announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to be implemented in the East Coast Economic Region that straddles Pahang, Terengganu, Kelantan and Mersing in Johor on February 28 in Putrajaya.

This ambitious development will involve the construction of 25 international-class hotels, 4,000 villas, a marina withyachting facilities and several commercial developments

It is also understood that several world-renowned architects have been penned to be involved which will see Malaysia, particularly Johor, establishing itself as an eco-tourism hub similar to that of the Gold Coast in Australia.

Johor Sultan hopes laguna project will help Mersing draw tourists
Posted on April 15, 2012, Sunday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2012/04...draw-tourists/

MERSING: Sultan Ibrahim of Johor has expressed the hope that the RM22-million Mersing Laguna project will turn Mersing into a world famous tourist destination.

Sultan Ibrahim said despite having many precious natural resources and beautiful islands, Mersing, which was founded in 1892, had yet to experience rapid development as compared to other towns in Johor.

“Today, Mersing is a mere transit town for tourists heading to the islands. Most of the people of Mersing still depend on seasonal fishery activities and sources of income that are not very stable.

“Hence, the time has come for the people of Mersing to make changes for a better future and higher income,” he said at the ground-breaking ceremony for the Mersing Laguna project at Dataran Pulau here yesterday.

Present were Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman, Mersing Member of Parliament Datuk Dr Abdul Latiff Ahmad and Radiant Starfish Bhd chief executive officer Ungku Safian Abdullah.

Sultan Ibrahim said as the Mersing Laguna project would definitely benefit the people in the constituency, they should prepare themselves to grab any available opportunities to work in the tourism industry so that they would not have to continue living as fishermen and depend on government aid.

The Sultan said the developer and the government had carried out in-depth study on the project and had taken into account all factors and impact of the project to the residents and the environment.

“I would also like to give a little reminder to those it may concern. Do not take advantage by staging protests or making unreasonable demands for your own personal or political interests.

“As you know, I visit Mersing on a very regular basis because this town has been my playground ever since I was young.” — Bernama

ECO-TOURISM: Laguna project to be developed on 809ha reclaimed land

THE once sleepy district of Mersing in the northeast of Johor is set to be transformed into a RM22 billion high-end international eco-tourism destination in seven years.

Called Mersing Laguna, the resort will see a new wave of exciting developments that include boutique hotels, service apartments and waterfront villas on 809ha of reclaimed land, touted to be the country's biggest land reclamation project.

The project was launched yesterday with the signing of agreements by master developer Radiant Starfish Development Bhd and four partners -- Chinese construction conglomerate Sinohydro Corporation (M) Sdn Bhd, China-based theme park developers Shengrong International Group Co Ltd, Johor education foundation YPJ Holding Sdn Bhd and CIMB Insurance Brokers Sdn Bhd.

Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman, who launched the event, also witnessed the signing ceremony.

Present were Johor state secretary Datuk Obet Tawil, East Coast Economic Region (ECER) chief executive officer Datuk John Isaace and Radiant Starfish Development Bhd president and chief executive officer Ungku Safian Abdullah.

Mersing Laguna, which started its three-year reclamation work, is located between the Endau-Rompin and the Marine Parks off the coast of Mersing.

The reclamation project will involve a 36km stretch of the beach. The project was one of the nine announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to be implemented in the ECER region that straddles Pahang, Terengganu, Kelantan and Mersing in Johor on Feb 28.

Ungku Safian said the project took years of detailed hydrographic, environmental impact and socio-economic studies before it could take off.

"We will consciously work towards environmental sustainability by adapting green and advanced technologies in the provision of energy and waste management."

Ungku Safian was confident that the project had the potential to be a high-niche global tourist resort similar to the Gold Coast in Australia and Bali in Indonesia.

"We want to turn Mersing into a premier tourism product and use it to leverage on eco-tourism."

The reclamation work alone would cost RM4.2 billion, while related infrastructure would cost a further RM1 billion.

Another RM17 billion will be required to complete the entire development of 22 hotels, 4,000 villas, marina facilities and other commercial development, including a 80ha theme park.

On the livelihood of traditional coastal fishermen in the area, Ungku Safian said the development would not in any way hamper them, adding that the project was also expected to provide jobs for the people of Mersing.

Ungku Safian also assured Johoreans that they would be able to see for themselves the first hotel under Mersing Laguna in two years.

Ghani said Mersing now had a huge potential to develop into an international tourist destination.

"Johor is the only state with two economic growth corridors with Mersing Laguna coming under the ECER in the east and Iskandar Malaysia in the west of the state," he said, adding that Johor had a good mix of investment assets.

Ghani also said the government would improve the infrastructure connectivity between Mersing and other parts of Johor as well as the rest of the east coast.

RM5bil project set to be a major boost for Terengganu’s economy
Tuesday October 25, 2011

Huge project: Ahmad (second left) listening to Jebasinggam (left) while
State secretary Datuk Mazlan Ngah (second right) and ECERDC General
Manager (Infrastructure) Arizan Arifin look on during the ground breaking
and launching ceremony.


KUALA TERENGGANU: The Kuala Terengganu City Centre (KTCC) project is expected to draw some RM5bil in domestic and foreign investments upon its completion in 2018.

Terengganu Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said said the project, with a gross development value of RM5bil, would also improve the state’s economy.

“At present, the state’s yearly economic growth is between 5% and 5.5%. However, we expect economic growth to reach 7.7% by 2020 due to this mega-project,” he told reporters after officiating the ground-breaking ceremony at the project site here recently.

Ahmad said the project, which covers a 7km area from the Terengganu river estuary, would expand and link the city to its waterfront and is expected to enhance Kuala Terengganu as a Heritage Waterfront City.

“Terengganu is set for exciting times. The KTCC project is a game-changer and will establish new economic parameters for the state.

“There will be multiple spin-offs for the local population as businesses will flourish riding on increased tourist arrivals as well as enhanced opportunities in trade, retail services, recreation, food and beverage,” he said.

He added the project would lead to new domestic and foreign investments, attracting private-sector participation that would eventually elevate Terengganu’s economy.

Ahmad said the project is centred around five key development areas: Muara Utara, Muara Selatan, Pulau Warisan, Kampung Ladang/Tanjung and the Corniche Waterfront.

“In total, the development is estimated to create jobs for more than 82,000 people by 2020.

“The project, facilitated by the East Coast Economic Region Development Council (ECERDC), will serve as a catalyst in transforming socio-economic growth in Terengganu,” he said.

According to Ahmad, three major elements in KTCC — an integrated lifestyle enclave, a learning quarter, and a health and wellness village — would essentially move Terengganu up the value chain and place the state firmly in the New Economy.

“The project will be beneficial to all, with value of real estate going up.

“On the socio-economic front, KTCC will be a factor in encouraging more youths to stay back to work in the state as Kuala Terengganu changes to become a hub for living, working and recreational activities,” he said.

He added the completion of the East Coast Highway (LPT2) by 2013, would also reduce travel time between Kuala Lumpur and Kuala Terengganu from seven hours to only four hours.

ECERDC chief executive officer, Datuk Jebasingam Issace John said the landmark project would boost Terengganu’s economic potential. He added that ECERDC had already received expressions of interest from various parties, including Middle Eastern investors, who were keen to take part in the KTCC’s development projects.

“So far, feedback and the response to the project has been very encouraging.

“Our vision is to introduce new state-of-the-art facilities while preserving Terengganu’s unique cultural heritage, while coming up with a balanced and sustainable development,” he said.

MCKIP to turn Kuantan into regional gateway
By M. HAMZAH JAMALUDIN Published: 2012/04/20
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New.../pimo/Article/



PRIME Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak announced the setting up of an industrial park in Gebeng here, at the opening of the China-Malaysia Qinzhou Industrial Park (QIP) in southwest China early this month.

Mooted as the sister project of QIP, the setting up of the 600ha Malaysia-China Kuantan Industrial Park (MCKIP) is an important step to help turn Kuantan into a strategic gateway to the Asean and Asia-Pacific region, which has a population of four billion and a combined gross domestic product of US$17 trillion (RM52 trillion).

The people here, especially the business community, are excited with the announcement as they believe that MCKIP will expedite the process to make Kuantan part of the first conurbation in the east coast and turn Pahang into a developed state by 2020.

Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia (ACCCIM) Pahang chairman Datuk Seri Lim Sing said the business community in the state was eager to participate in the project as they saw vast potential in MCKIP.

"We are confident that the new industrial park will attract local and foreign investors, especially those in the oil and gas, rubber and automotive industries," said Lim, who is also ACCCIM's vice-president.

He also urged the government to expedite the plan to upgrade the Sultan Ahmad Shah Airport and Kuantan Port to support the growing export and import activities and the increasing number of people using the facilities in the next few years.

"The airport and seaport should have the facilities of international standards that can cater to bigger aircraft and ships. We also hope that direct flights to China can be introduced at Sultan Ahmad Shah Airport soon," he said.

Kuantan's proximity to China will provide synergies between QIP and MCKIP, he added.

Lim said the government had made the right decision when it chose Kuantan for the project because it has a port that faces the South China Sea, offering a direct link to the deepwater Qinzhou port and others in the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.

The sea trip between Kuantan and Qinzhou takes about three days, and journey by air takes only about three hours.

"Local companies can form a partnership with those from China and they can either invest in QIP or MCKIP, or both," said Lim, who will be meeting a group of investors from China this week.

Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) vice-chancellor Profesor Datuk Dr Daing Nasir Ibrahim said the establishment of MCKIP was timely as it would bring various benefits to the people, apart from creating more jobs as the park would be within the East Coast Economic Region (ECER).

As a leading university in ECER, he said UMP could also play its role effectively, not only in the technical fields but also through its Mandarin Language and Cultural Centre (MLCC), which was set up under a collaboration with Hebei University of China last year.

He said Hebei University had sent three lecturers to MLCC and the collaboration between the two universities also covered the placement of students in the Chinese companies, apart from joint research and cultural activities.

Pahang Youth Council secretary-general Azrul Khairi Muhamad said the setting up of the twin industrial parks was the result of excellent ties between Chinese and Malaysian leaders.

MCKIP will provide opportunities to young entrepreneurs to forge a partnership with Chinese companies and penetrate the vast market in the republic, he said.

Azrul said that support given by the Chinese government to MCKIP also proved that the negative publicity on Lynas rare earth refinery in the same area had failed to scare investors away.

ECER Development Council chief executive officer Datuk Jebasingam Issace John said Kuantan was the best location for MCKIP as it was located in the ECER Special Economic Zone and was well connected by highways to the leading airports and seaports in the country.

"Kuantan Port will also serve as the regional hub and collection centre for containers in Southeast Asia to support the development of the logistic facilities in Qinzhou, as well as its manufacturing and automotive industries," he said.

ECER: Lynas has no negative impact on MCKIP
Monday, May 07, 2012 - 15:40 by Bernama
http://www.mmail.com.my/story/ecer-l...e-impact-mckip

KUALA LUMPUR: The controversial Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (LAMP), will not have a negative impact on the Malaysia-China Kuantan Industrial Park (MCKIP), says the East Coast Economic Region's (ECER) Chief
Executive Officer, Datuk Jebasingam Issace John.

"Lynas is a good idea, a good project. We don't want to have a negative impression of it right from the beginning," he told Bernama.

He also said that the government is working to resolve issues surrounding Lynas.

He said this in response to whether the RM1.5 billion rare earth refinery located at the Gebeng Industrial Estate, would have a negative impact on the MCKIP.

The LAMP is located close to the proposed 607-hectare MCKIP which is also sited at Gebeng town in Kuantan, Pahang, and within the ECER.

Jebasingam said the MCKIP, which is expected to take off within the next six months, will enhance bilateral trade between Malaysia and China.

The key components of the MCKIP include plastic, metal, electric and electronics, consumer products and renewable energy he added.

"Malaysian businesses and businessmen from the area will be able now to enter into joint ventures with Chinese partners to develop these industries," he said.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak had announced last Sunday that Kuantan has been identified as a suitable location to house a sister industrial park between China and Malaysia.

He said the move was to reciprocate China's efforts to set aside a 55 sq km piece of land in Qinzhou, Nanning, as the Qinzhou Industrial Park, as a joint venture project with Malaysia.

In announcing it, Najib said the government was carrying out detailed studies on the implementation of MCKIP and has had meetings with investors from China on it.

"Give us a little bit more time to finalise it and if eventually realised, we will see a higher level of investments, especially in Kuantan," he added.

Terengganu home for refinery
By Satiman Jamin and Cheryl Yvonne Achu Published: 2012/06/14
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...UKITE/Article/

MALAYSIA will house Asia's largest biorefinery complex in Terengganu.

The complex, which the government has allocated RM170 million for its infrastructure, is expected to generate a cumulative gross national income of RM20.4 billion by 2020 and produce 2,500 green-jobs.

The East Coast Economic Region Development Council (ECERDC) has teamed up with the Terengganu government and Malaysian Biotechnology Corp Sdn Bhd (BiotechCorp) to facilitate the project.

ECERDC chief executive officer Datuk Jebasingam Issace John said with the biorefinery project, ECER now had secured more than RM10 billion in investments.

From the total, RM2.1 billion investments were from Pahang, RM5 billion from Johor and RM500 million from Kelantan. Terengganu makes up the balance.

ECERDC expects total investments to hit RM15 billion this year.

Jebasingam said the complex would be the first in Malaysia to use cellulosic feedstock to produce bioderivatives such as advanced carbohydrates, biochemicals, biomaterials, biofertilisers and active feed ingredient.

He was speaking after the signing ceremony, which was witnessed by Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said, here yesterday.

BiotechCorp CEO Datuk Mohd Nazlee Kamal said the 1,000ha complex was expected to be occupied by eight global industrial biotechnology players by 2015, with estimated RM6.8 billion in foreign direct investment.

"To ensure uninterrupted downstream operations, 30,000ha have been set aside as dedicated feedstock plantations that will produce 10.5 million tonnes of wood chips annually from Acacia mangium and Leucaena leucocephala," he said.

Construction of the complex, located at the Kertih Biopolymer Park, is slated to begin in August, with operations starting early 2014.

BiotechCorp and ECERDC have already secured RM2 billion investment from a joint-venture between Korea's CJ CheilJedang and France's Arkema to build the world's first bio-methionine facility there.
