The East Coast Development Corridor | Kelantan,Terengganu,East Pahang | Petronas

http://besonline.rtm.net.my/modules....icle&sid=62449

Kelantan- Prime Minister Dato' Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said the Barisan Nasional (BN) has a good chance of recapturing Kelantan from PAS based o*n the tremendous welcome thbelives e local people gave him o*n his visit to the state.


He said he had visited Kelantan many times but the positive reception o*n this visit was strikingly different and indicated the people in the state were willing to give an opportunity to the BN.

Prime Minister said at a news conference after closing a three-day camp at the Sekolah Wakaf Mek Zainab complex.

Also present were UMNO Kelantan Chairman, Datuk Seri Annuar Musa and Minister of Higher Education, Datuk Mustapa Mohamed.

On the Eastern Corridor encompassing Kelantan, Terengganu and east Pahang, he said the master plan being prepared by Petronas was expected to be ready by the end of the year. In his speech, he said the people could make greater progress if they adopted a new mindset.

He said the government was focusing o*n developing human capital because all the infrastructural development would become meaningless if the people were not prepared to change their old ways.

Very excellent news !!

Paklah really thinks "big" -- he realizes that Malaysia is not only KL but it's all over within the national boundary.

Not only East Coast, but Northern and East Malaysia corridors will be launched soon !

I hope by 2015 Malaysia's per-capita GDP will hit $ 20 000 !

East Coast Corridor plan to be unveiled by year-end

August 3 2007

MACHANG: The East Coast Corridor development blueprint is nearly ready for submission to the Sultans of Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang before being unveiled at the end of the year.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said national oil corporation Petronas had done a fine job in crafting the plan.

“Petronas has briefed the National Investment Task Force and has submitted the document to the Economic Planning Unit implementation committee which I chair.

“Now preparations are being made to forward it to the Rulers of the three states,” he told reporters after visiting the Machang Moral Rehabilitation Centre project site here yesterday.

Petronas is spearheading development efforts in the East Coast Corridor focusing on downstream activities based on petrochemical, handicraft industry and tourism. — Bernama

Hopefully.

But normally this type of positive statement saying develop this and that will come out when the election is near.

its a way to attract voter to vote for them.

once they won the election, there will be another story in the first few years untill when the election is near again.

Giliran Koridor Timur -- Ia akan dilancar akhir tahun bagi melonjakkan ekonomi 3 negeri terbabit

Oleh: HERMAN HAMID dan AZRAN FITRI RAHIM

MACHANG 2 Ogos – Pelan Koridor Pantai Timur yang akan menjadi asas untuk melonjakkan ekonomi negeri Pantai Timur iaitu Kelantan, Terengganu dan Pahang kini dalam proses terakhir untuk dikemukakan kepada sultan ketiga-tiga negeri terlibat sebelum dilancarkan hujung tahun ini, kata Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

Menurut Perdana Menteri, Petronas yang dipertanggungjawabkan untuk merangka pelan tersebut telah menyusun dengan baik perancangan pembangunan bagi mentransformasikan ekonomi ketiga-tiga negeri itu.

Katanya, Petronas sudah memberikan taklimat kepada Jawatankuasa Bertindak Pelaburan Nasional dan mengemukakan pelan tersebut kepada jawatankuasa pelaksana Unit Perancang Ekonomi yang beliau sendiri pengerusikan.

‘‘Sekarang ini persediaan sedang dibuat untuk pelan itu dipersembahkan kepada raja-raja tiga negeri terlibat iaitu Kelantan, Terengganu dan Pahang,” katanya.

Abdullah yang juga Menteri Kewangan dan Menteri Keselamatan Dalam Negeri berkata demikian pada sidang akhbar di sini hari ini selepas melakukan lawatan kerja ke tapak Projek Pusat Pemulihan Akhlak Machang bernilai RM125 juta yang kini dalam pembinaan.

Perdana Menteri sedang melawat Kelantan selama dua hari bermula pagi ini.

Abdullah sebelum ini mengumumkan cadangan untuk merancakkan pertumbuhan di Kelantan, Terengganu dan Pahang melalui Koridor Pantai Timur yang memberi tumpuan khusus kepada pelaksanaan projek-projek pembangunan yang dapat menjana kegiatan ekonomi ketiga-tiga negeri yang selama ini dicorakkan oleh masyarakat desa.

Menurut beliau, koridor baru pembangunan itu merupakan perancangan besar Kerajaan Persekutuan untuk membolehkan rakyat ketiga-tiga negeri itu merapatkan jurang antara Pantai Timur dengan wilayah dan negeri-negeri lain di Malaysia.

Pada awal tahun ini Abdullah telah pun melancarkan Wilayah Pembangunan Iskandar (WPI) di Johor yang banyak menarik pelaburan dari seberang laut.

Isnin lalu, Perdana Menteri melancarkan Wilayah Ekonomi Koridor Utara (Koridor Utara) yang menjanjikan pelaburan sebanyak RM177 bilion dalam tempoh 18 tahun antara 2007 dan 2025 di Kedah, Perlis, Pulau Pinang dan Perak.

Pelan Koridor Pantai Timur merangkumi Kelantan, Terengganu dan Pahang diumumkan oleh Perdana Menteri semasa beliau membentangkan Rancangan Malaysia Kesembilan (RMK-9) di Dewan Rakyat Mac lalu.

Terdahulu dalam ucapannya di sini, Perdana Menteri berkata, di bawah pelan tersebut penduduk negeri-negeri Pantai Timur termasuk di Kelantan akan mengalami transformasi dalam kehidupan mereka.

‘‘Oleh itu kita akan melaksanakan pelan tersebut sebaik-baiknya untuk manfaat rakyat keseluruhannya demi meningkatkan taraf hidup penduduk di wilayah ini,” jelasnya.

Abdullah mengulangi komitmennya untuk membawa Kelantan, yang berada di bawah pemerintahan parti pembangkang Pas sejak tahun 1990, supaya bergerak maju seiring dengan negeri-negeri lain di Malaysia.

‘‘Pak Lah tak akan tinggalkan Kelantan... Pak Lah nak Kelantan turut maju dan menikmati pembangunan negara.

‘‘Tidak ada sebab untuk tinggalkan Kelantan. Kelantan ada banyak kelebihan, tanahnya subur, orangnya bijak pandai dan ini semua merupakan aset bernilai untuk kita bawa kemajuan ke sini,” ujarnya.

Kelantan backs economic projects for eastern corridor
Friday August 3, 2007
TheStar


KOTA BARU: The Kelantan government said it will cooperate with the Federal Government to carry out projects in the planned eastern corridor economic region.

“If it benefits everyone, the state government will firmly back the projects,” state Finance Planning Committee chairman Datuk Husam Musahe told reporters after a state executive council meeting here on Wednesday.

He said neither political differences nor bureaucracy should come in the way of implementing the projects.

Husam said Petronas briefed the state government on the corridor eight months ago.

“We have given our feedback and hope the projects will not just be a pipe-dream,” he said, adding that among the projects that Kelantan had proposed is a fast-track rail link between the state and Penang.

He said this would help to boost Penang’s status as a logistics hub in the north and enable better economic and social interaction between the east and west coasts.

Husam added that Kelantan had also mooted the setting aside of 50,000ha of land to cultivate rubber, to boost production in strategic commodities.

He said the state government had started to woo international tyre-producing firms by offering a nominal amount of free latex when they invest in Kelantan to produce tyres and conduct research on how to improve safety features of tyres.

On another matter, Husam announced the setting up of a RM500,000 welfare centre, called Tunas Harapan in Pengkalan Chepa to house troubled youngsters aged 12 and 13.

PM to launch two projects in Kelantan
Thursday August 2, 2007
TheStar

KOTA BARU: Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will launch two projects in the state today – a second bridge across Sungai Kelantan and a rehabilitation centre in Machang.

The Prime Minister’s visit will make it a hectic weekend as the PAS-led state government will also be hosting two major programmes and the MCA its state convention.

Federal Development Department director Shukry Mohd Salleh said the new bridge and the centre were projects under the Ninth Malaysia Plan.

He added that Kelantan would also be part of a proposed multi-billion-ringgit eastern economic corridor, the master plan of which will be unveiled by Abdullah at a later date.

National oil corporation Petronas will be the lead agency in the development of this corridor.

The second bridge across Sungai Kelantan, when completed next year, would significantly ease the traffic dispersal system for motorists heading towards Tumpat and Pasir Mas, Shukry told a press conference here yesterday.

The Prime Minister will launch the ground-breaking of the bridge project before heading to Kok Lanas for a meet-the-people session.

Abdullah will also launch the ground-breaking of the RM1.25mil Pusat Pemulihan Akhlak in Machang, a detention and rehabilitation centre that can house 500 inmates.

At the time of Abdullah’s visit, the state government will be holding a halal food carnival at Padang Perdana and the Farmers’ Day state-level celebrations at Hotel Perdana.

Abdullah would rather work than answer critics

KOTA BARU: Development projects under the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP) will be spread across the country and leave no state behind, the prime minister said.
Officiating at the ground-breaking for the RM143 million second Sultan Yahya Bridge here yesterday, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi conceded that there were still many facilities and various infrastructure lacking in the country despite the progress it had achieved.

"Our position is that we will keep providing them so that the development of the states and people continues," he said.

The ground-breaking was the first of several project launches to be unveiled by the prime minister during his two-day visit to the state.

The prime minister said the government would improve the needed infrastructure and hoped the state government would co-operate by speeding up land acquisitions.
On a another matter, the prime minister said the best way to deal with the relentless criticism over his development initiatives was to let the projects speak for themselves.

"I sometimes get tired of talking. Instead, I just want to see the work done," he said at the launching of Kada (Kemubu Area Development Authority) Square, a riverside development in Ketereh near here yesterday.

Abdullah said he preferred to focus on detailed planning for development projects, which are meant for the public good, and then carrying them out to full completion.

He said he would meet with local leaders beforehand to discuss the needs of the rakyat, and when the projects were implemented, he would inspect their progress.

"We can’t waste time talking endlessly. This is the time for work," he said.

"From the planning stage to implementation, I am continuously being asked by critics why we need to spend so much money and where the money is coming from.

"When the project is underway, they again query if the budget approved by parliament is enough.

"This is just their habit. If I want to ask them, I can think of a hundred questions but I choose to spend my time working and making sure all these projects are completed," he said.

Boost for East Coast states
Monday August 13, 2007
TheStar


KEPALA BATAS: Kelantan and Terengganu will soon be developed under a comprehensive plan, similar to the recently launched Northern Corridor Economic Region, to improve the livelihood of the people and eradicate poverty in the two states.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said the East Coast Economic Corridor plan, now being drawn up by Petronas, was expected to be unveiled before the end of the year.

“We promise and we deliver. This is our policy. We don’t promise something just as an election gimmick to fish for votes.

“It is not an empty promise. The people know this. I don’t do things to mislead them as God is watching what I am doing and what I have promised them.

“They know our capabilities and I believe they will return the mandate to us once again in the next general election,” he said when opening the Kepala Batas Umno division annual general meeting at Dewan Millennium here.

Abdullah said emphasis would be given to poverty eradication, while the agriculture and agro-based industry would be the thrust of the plan for the corridor.

He added that he had directed Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Ministry Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to look into replanting oil palm trees on a big scale as the commodity had good prospects.

“I have also asked Muhyiddin to seriously consider the cultivation of giant sweet potatoes on a big scale as the tuber can produce 12 different products. I have also told him to build factories in the east coast states to manufacture products using sweet potatoes,” he said, adding that tobacco farmers in the two states had asked for an alternative crop as they were no longer keen in the tobacco industry.

Abdullah, who is also Umno president, paid tribute to past Umno leaders, including his father Ahmad Badawi,

He said it was time the people fulfilled the true meaning of Independence by acquiring knowledge and skills to upgrade themselves and help steer the country to greater heights.

“Without Independence and the struggles of our forefathers, we would still be slaves of the colonial government,” he added.

Abdullah also presented souvenirs to Kepala Batas Umno veterans and launched the Kepala Batas Puteri Umno election machinery.

Terengganu investing RM12m in fish forecasting system
Thursday August 16, 2007
TheStar


KUALA TERENGGANU: The Terengganu government is spending about RM12mil on research and development to come up with a fish forecasting system in waters off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia to increase fish catches.

Fisheries Director General Datuk Junaidi Che Ayub said the project, which began last year and was expected to be completed in 2010, would determine fishing areas for the setting up of the fish forecasting system.

"Fish forecasting technology can forecast potential fishing areas," he said after launching the system at the Marine Fishery Resources Development and Management Department in Chendering here on Tuesday.

Also present were Mimos Berhad president and chief executive officer Datuk Abdul Wahab Abdullah and National Fishermen's Association (Nekmat) manager Norizaman Ghazali.

Junaidi said the research project was undertaken jointly by the Fisheries Department, Fisheries Development Authority of Malaysia, Malaysia Centre for Remote Sensing, Nekmat and Mimos.

He said the project would be extended to waters off Sabah and Sarawak as well as the Indian Ocean if it achieved its objectives.

The forecasting system, to be named IKANG, the abbreviation for Ikhtiar Ke Arah Nelayan Gemilang (Striving Towards Shaping Fishermen of Distinction), is divided into five components.

The components are gathering of marine data, compilation of sea surface data via satellite, database development, model development and dissemination of information to fishermen.

PM To Launch East Coast Corridor After Aidilfitri


BACHOK, Aug 18 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will launch the East Coast Corridor development programme involving Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang and a section of Johor after Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Dr Awang Adek Hussin said the development plan would result in a balanced development in all the development areas in the East Coast, he told reporters after closing the `Premier Gotong-Royong' organised by Rela Kelantan at Pantai Irama, here today.

Also present were Home Ministry Secretary-General Tan Sri Aseh Che Mat and State Assemblyman for Jelawat Datuk Dr Ilias Hussain as well as more than 500 Rela members from the whole of Kelantan.

In his speech at the function, Awang Adek said Kelantan had the potentials for development as it was endowed with natural resources such as gold, tin ore, petroleum and a rich culture which could be highlighted.

East Coast Economic Corridor For Post-Aidilfitri Launch


KUALA TERENGGANU, Aug 26 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi Sunday asked Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang to be prepared for development under the East Coast Economic Corridor (ECEC) plan to be launched after the Hari Raya Aidilfitri in mid-October.

In giving the reminder, he said the ECEC plan was ready and would be presented to the sultans of the three states for their consent after the festival.

"The East Coast Economic Corridor will be launched after the Hari Raya (Aidilfitri). The development must proceed; it cannot be postponed. The plan is ready," he told reporters after closing the Terengganu Barisan Nasional (BN) convention in Pulau Duyong near here.

Abdullah was accompanied by his wife, Datin Seri Jeanne Abdullah. Also present were Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh and his wife, Toh Puan Che Kamariah Zakaria.

The prime minister had launched the Iskandar Development Region (IDR) in Johor early this year and the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER), covering Perlis, Kedah, Penang and Perak, last month.

Earlier, in his speech, Abdullah said all quarters including the state administrations should be streamlined to ensure that the development projects under the corridor plan really benefited the people.

He said the success of development programmes in the states depended greatly on the public sector services and, as such, the capability of the sector should be at its highest level.

He also said that all procedures that could delay the implementation of the development programmes should be reduced so that they could be carried out well and effectively.

Abdullah said he was convinced that the implementation of the corridor plan would intensify development in the three states and improve their economic status.

On development in Terengganu, he said more development programmes would be implemented, even projects hitherto unseen by the people of the state.

Abdullah said the development would bring about a social and economic transformation, adding that this reflected the determination and commitment of the government in developing the state as envisaged in the BN manifesto of the last general election.

"I hope the people will be able to discern the determination and sincerity of the government in developing Terengganu. At the same time, the people should also play their role so that the projects could be implemented quickly and effectively," he said.

He also said that all problems be resolved immediately so that the development projects would not get stalled.

On another matter, Abdullah reminded all BN component parties to adhere to the consensus approach in their discussions to ensure that solidarity reigned supreme in the coalition.

He said quarrelling among themselves and voicing their dissatisfaction through the media were not the way out of problems, and would only reflect a weakness on the part of the coalition.

Abdullah said he was confident the BN would continue to receive the support of the people of Terengganu in the next general election because much development has been brought to the state since the BN regained power there in the last general election, in 2004.

"I am not worried (about the BN position in Terengganu) because I believe the people will continue to support the BN as they are seeing the changes for the better," he said.

He said Terengganu would eventually emerge as a BN stronghold.

At the event, Abdullah received a list of the resolutions of the convention, which was presented to him by the Member of Parliament for Kuala Terengganu, Datuk Razali Ismail.

After the function, Abdullah returned to the federal capital. He will return to Terengganu tomorrow morning to launch the national-level Farmers, Livestock Breeders and Fishermen's Day 2007 here.

Meanwhile, Jeanne is scheduled to attend a dinner organised by the Terengganu Association of Wives of Elected Representatives (Serikandi) here.

PM urges east coast states to facilitate ECER programmes
Monday August 27, 2007
By R.S.N. MURALI
TheStar


KUALA TERENGGANU: Get ready to implement the Eastern Corridor Economic Development Region (ECER) – that is the message from the Prime Minister to the three east coast state governments.

Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang must gear up quickly to implement programmes under ECER to be launched after Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

He said the blueprint for ECER was ready and would be presented to the states’ rulers for their blessing.

“The three states should be prepared by enhancing their administration structures so that any decisions on the implementation of ECER programmes could be expedited and carried out effectively,” said the prime minister.

Abdullah said the three states would witness robust development with the launch of ECER.

“So government officers right up to mentri besars should be systematic in expediting the implementation of ECER programmes,” he said after closing the state Barisan Nasional Convention here yesterday.

Abdullah said he was also glad to see development taking shape in Terengganu under the Barisan, adding that this would continue.

“The rakyat can see for themselves that we have delivered our promises and continued to introduce further development.

“I am not worried about Barisan’s position in Terengganu as the locals could evaluate the changes brought here,” he added.

Earlier, in IPOH, the prime minister said the Attorney-General’s Chambers must have considered all aspects when it dropped the 37 charges against Port Klang assemblyman Datuk Zakaria Md Deros and five of his business partners.

Abdullah said he did not want to comment further on cases that had to do with the Attorney-General Chambers.

“It is not my practice to interfere in matters of the chambers. What is necessary is justice,” he told reporters at the national-level Student Leaders Unity and Integration Programme at Stadium Indera Mulia.

He was asked about the case in which Zakaria and the others were charged with failing to notify the Companies Commission of Malaysia of a change of address, failing to hold annual general meetings, failing to submit financial statements and failing to submit profit and loss accounts.

Terengganu To Be Biggest Hub For Barramundi In Asean

KUALA TERENGGANU, Sept 2 (Bernama) -- A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed here today that has the potential to make Terengganu the biggest hub for barramundi in the Asean region, with the potential to export the fish to Europe and the Americas.

The MoU was signed by Terengganu Agrotech Development Corp Sdn Bhd (TADC), a Terengganu government subsidiary, and Cell Aquaculture Ltd of Perth, Australia, and was witnessed by Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The project would be developed by TRG Cell Sdn Bhd, a joint-venture subsidiary of the two companies, on a 5.5-hectare marine culture centre in Tanjung Demong, Besut, in November under the Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) concept.

TADC Executive Director Ir Adnan Ghazali said the project would be undertaken with technology specially brought in from Australia by Cell Aquaculture, a company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange that has developed the RAS and expanded its business to Europe and the Americas.

"We expect the technology to be brought in fully by the middle of December. Under the first phase, we will import the Barramundi fish fry from Australia.

"Six to eight months after that we expect to market the first harvest of the fish to Europe and the Americas as well as several other countries," he told reporters after signing the MoU. Cell Aquaculture was represented by its chairman, Perry Leach, and managing director, Peter Burn.

The first phase of the project is expected to yield 100 tonnes of Barramundi annually and the second phase 600 tonnes annually for export of live fish.

Adnan said the project would provide a boost to the country's aquaculture technology, particularly in Terengganu, and provide jobs for graduates and the local people.

Muhyiddin lauded the move by the Terengganu government, saying aquaculture products had good markets not only locally but also abroad.

Earlier, he had closed the National Farmers, Livestock Breeders and Fishermen's Day celebrations at the Taman Awam Batu Burok here.

He told reporters then that the Federal Government had set the target of making Terengganu a major food producer over the next eight to 10 years.

The ministry and the state government had drawn up an agricultural development plan to realise the objective, he said.

Muhyiddin said the Terengganu Agricultural Development Plan would be implemented soon and would be continued under the 10th Malaysia Plan (2011-2015).

He said the private sector would also be encouraged to help make a success of the plan which would involve various sectors, including cultivation of vegetables, fruits and herbs and breeding of goats and dairy cattle as well as fisheries and aquaculture.
