Pasir Gudang to be home for UITM campus
By FARIK ZOLKEPLI Wednesday July 21, 2010

JOHOR BARU: The Pasir Gudang area will welcome the latest UITM campus to be built this year, said Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin.

He said the construction of the campus, which would handle intakes of up to 4,000 students, would start soon and was expected to be completed within three years.

“The campus will also have on-campus accommodation for 2,000 students.

“However, the remaining students, along with academic and non-academic personnel could easily find off campus accommodation in the surrounding areas,” he said in his speech during the groundbreaking ceremony for UITM Pasir Gudang campus here recently.

He said Pasir Gudang was chosen given its strategic location near housing estates as well as industrial areas.

Mohamed Khaled said the courses that would be offered at the campus were diploma courses in civil engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering and business management.

“We also hope the campus administration will take advantage of its location being near industrial areas by cooperating closely with various companies especially in research and development (R&D).

“Cooperation between the university and the industry will be beneficial for both parties,” he said.

Mohamed Khaled said the Pasir Gudang campus, along with five others would be built this year along with six others, still in the pipeline as part of the university’s goal to have 200,000 students by 2015.

“The ministry is confident the university has the potential of reaching its target.

“Among the other locations chosen for the campuses are Dengkil in Selangor, Nilai in Negri Sembilan, Pekan in Pahang and Jasin in Malacca,” he said.

'Expo city' will make Iskandar trading hub
By Ahmad Fairuz Othman



Asia Pacific Trade and Expo City (APTEC)
“It will be a truly integrated city attracting all types of people and
nationalities that will have something to interest each one of them.
The city will create a huge influx of tourists,” says Ch’ng.


ISKANDAR Malaysia in Johor is set to become a major trading hub in the region for manufacturers and buyers once a permanent one-stop exposition, trade and distribution centre near Pasir Gudang is completed in five to seven years.

Called the "Asia Pacific Trade and Expo City" (APTEC), it is located within the RM6.6 billion township of Lakehill Resort City, which is being developed by Malaysia Pacific Corp Bhd (MPCB).

Once completed, APTEC will have a built-up gross floor area of about 4 million sq ft, occupying a land area of 9.4ha.

MPCB president and chief executive officer Datuk Bill Ch'ng said APTEC would become a centre for manufacturers of all sizes to showcase their products to international buyers.

"Buyers will come to the hub just like in a department store. These buyers will be retailers and wholesalers.

"The hub will be the centre to supply goods for the regional market, and allow buyers from all over the world to source their products here," said Ch'ng after attending the launch of the Iskandar Malaysia Open Day in Johor yesterday.

Manufacturers who set up their base in APTEC will promote their products to buyers from Southeast Asia, India, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and the Middle East.

Ch'ng said potential manufacturers at APTEC would be selected based on the potential of their products or services.

They include manufacturers of goods such as electronics, fashion, home appliances and foodstuff.

Investors and traders will also find accommodation and recreation at the Lakehill Resort City to complement their business dealings.

Other attractions in the development include a six-star lakeside resort, factory outlet stores, a heritage and cultural village, a thematic restaurant located on top of a rock formation and other international bistros and cafes.

Civil Work To Start This Year For APTEC Project
April 26, 2010 20:26 P

KUALA LUMPUR, April 26 (Bernama) -- Property firm, Malaysia Pacific Corporation Bhd (MPCorp), plans to start the civil work of the Asia Pacific Trade and Expo City (APTEC) in Iskandar Malaysia this year.

The combined cost of the project, including Nusa Paradis (rpt Nusa Paradis) and factory outlets is expected to cost RM2.6 billion.

"We have the masterplan and are waiting for some special incentives from the Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA). We hope to be granted soon," its president and chief executive officer Datuk Bill C.P. Ch'ng told reporters at the National Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia forum titled "A Strong China: Its Implications and Challenges" here Monday.

APTEC, billed as the largest trade exposition and distribution centre in the region is located within its flagship Lakehill Resort City. It will comprise a trade and expo centre, shopping mall, office towers, hotels and a halal centre.

The entire project -- APTEC and LakeHill Resort City -- is expected to cost RM4.5 billion and has an estimated gross development value of between RM6.5 billion and RM8 billion.

Covering three million sq ft of exhibition space, APTEC will have the widest selection of products from China and the Asian region, with the state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructures in a one-stop sourcing and trading centre.

APTEC will serve as a catalyst in the development of Iskandar Malaysia into a regional and distribution hub, targeting Asia-Pacific's population of 800 million.

"We are also negotiating with various potential joint-venture partners as we want to look for people with the expertise to operate APTEC. We need various expertise as it is an international trade centre," Ch'ng said.

APTEC, he said, would showcase a wide variety of mass consumer products such as garments, souvenirs and high-tech electronic goods from China, India and Asean countries, at competitive prices and comparable quality options for buyers.

Ch'ng said Asean was a good alternative market as the world was also looking at China and Asia to kick start the global recovery.

"In terms of affordability, it will still be the Asia and China because by tradition and culture, we tend to save more money and spend," he said.

APTEC will also have an impact on the economy as the expo centre will serve as a direct source from suppliers and factories, Ch'ng said, adding that it will have an enormous economic spin-offs.

"You will get the price directly from the source and there is no middlemen and agents. The cost will then can be brought down which will help contain inflation and reduce the cost of living," he added.

APTEC and LakeHill Resort City are developed by LakeHill Resort Development Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between MPCorp and Amanahraya Development Sdn Bhd, which holds 22 per cent.

Senai-Pasir Gudang-Desaru Expressway (SPGDE) – First Phase is Opened




11 September 2009 1,532 views
I think this is the most important and most exciting announcement of 2009. We can now use the new Senai-Pasir Gudang-Desaru Expressway (SPGDE).

The first phase of the Senai-Pasir Gudang-Desaru Expressway (SPGDE) is now open to the public, heralding a new chapter in the development of the eastern node of Iskandar Malaysia and by

extension, to Johor as a whole.

Linking air-transport and industrial centre Senai to Pasir Gudang, the first phase of the 77km-long expressway could not be said to be just another alternative road between the two places as it will cut the travel time from one hour to just 23 minutes.

*Time taken of SPGDE:*

1. Senai – Pasir Gudang: 27 mins

Senai – Cahaya Baru: 23 mins

Senai – Ulu Tiram: 13 mins

2. Ulu Tiram – Pasir Gudang: 14 mins

Ulu Tiram – Senai: 13 mins

Ulu Tiram – Cahaya Baru: 10 mins

3. Cahaya Baru – Senai: 23 mins

Cahaya Baru – Ulu Tiram: 10 mins

4. Pasir Gudang – Senai: 27 mins

Pasir Gudang – Ulu Tiram: 14 mins

It can be predicted with the completion of Senai-Pasir Gudang-Desaru Expressway (SPGDE), the economic and logistics development of Johor State will be accelerate and speed-up.

Better still, there will be no toll charges starting yesterday until October 10, 2009. Nevertheless, the opening of SPGDE still yet to well developed, so we urge all users to keep in mind with safety drive when using this new expressway

Thanks for those update pictures of Pasir Gudang, Nazrey.

Look at those cars parked along double-yellow lines.....we need better enforcement. Noone seems to follow rules. If the authority doesn't mind drivers parking there, then don't even bother painting those lines: waste of public funds

Johor Port
Johor Port is located at Pasir Gudang in the southwest of Johor in Peninsular Malaysia. Built by the Johor Port Authority and run by Johor Port Berhad in 1977, it is the first port in Johor and is designed as a multi-purpose port that caters to practically all types of cargo. It is the first port in Malaysia to be located within a free trade zone. Johor Port's warehouses are exempted from customs duties. Duty is only payable when the cargo is released from the warehouse area for local consumption.



Tanjung Langsat Port
Tanjung Langsat Port (TLP) is the third port in Johor, Malaysia, designed to complement the Port of Tanjung Pelepas and Johor Port in Pasir Gudang. Positioning itself as Southeast Asia's premier speciality terminal, it handles bulk cargo such as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and dangerous chemicals.

JOHOR BAHARU, Dec 31 (Bernama) -- The Port of Tanjung Langsat (PTL), in Pasir Gudang, will emerge as the leading chemical logistics hub in South East Asia, given the edge it has over its competitors.

Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman said the port's advantages were obvious although it has to compete with integrated petrochemical complexes in Pahang, Terengganu, and Pulau Jurong in Singapore.

Speaking to reporters after officiating PTL's liquid cargo berth here today, he said PTL can boost of its deepwater facility and offered a far lower cost of operation compared with other ports.

TLP is the third port in Johor, designed to complement the Port of Tanjung Pelepas and Johor Port.

Positioning itself as Southeast Asia's premier speciality terminal, it handles bulk cargo such as liquefied petroleum gas and dangerous chemicals.

"PTL's strategic location in South East Asia will make it the leading port for bulk liquid cargo handling.

"Besides being very spacious with a 4.5 kilometre shoreline fronting the Straits of Johor and depths of 12.8 metres, the port can accommodate large vessels," he said.

Johor Corporation, which owns PTL, has invested RM300 million to develop five liquid cargo berths.

Its President and Chief Executive, Tan Sri Muhammad Ali Hashim, said another RM600 million would be invested to install additional berth facilities at the port.

By 2012, Johor Corporation would have invested more than RM1 billion and, todate, has invested about RM500 million to develop itself to complement the nearby Tanjung Langsat Industrial Estate.

With the completion of the PTL's liquid cargo berth, the port can now handle 26 million metric tonnes of liquid cargo annually, making it the biggest liquid cargo port in the country and region.

The PTL berth will also serve Langsat Bulkers Sdn Bhd, a joint-venture between PTL and Felda Johor Bulkers.

As for activities at the complex, Abdul Ghani said Asiaflex Products Sdn Bhd which was in the midst of completing a RM500 million flexible pipe factory, was planning additional investments to produce high-tech "Umbilical Cords".

Besides, South Korea's Kiswire Neptune is planning to invest RM250 million to manufacture steel wire ropes at the integrated complex.
