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.

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

You sure Mersing will have a worldclass and huge theme park??... If so...Desaru in Johor is another place to have two world class theme parks (Ocean Quest marine park and Ocean Splash water park) which they (Kazanah Nasional) are partner with Dolphin Quest (from the US) there

It seems like the Sultan of Johore himself wants to involve directly in this project.. Hopefully this will be a blessing to Mersing people and of course, to the project itself

iskandar city? it is Iskandar (Dev) Region.. Mersing is located at Northeast of the State of Johor.. Iskandar Region generally spans from Tg Pelepas to Tg Langsat and central north until Senai and surrounding areas if i am not mistaken.

Err, I don't think so. Here is a picture to prove it.

Let's compare with the map of Iskandar Malaysia.

Iskandar does not even include Kota Tinggi and Mersing is even further away from JB or Kulaijaya.
