Sirim Expands Services To Support Ecer Growth
August 05, 2009 19:19 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 5 (Bernama) -- SIRIM Bhd is expanding its services to cater to the industry needs at the Eastern Corridor Economic Region (ECER).

In a statement here today, SIRIM said it would provide the ECER technical assistance and human capital development in the areas of metal fabrication technology, packaging and labelling and post-harvest machinery in agriculture.

"These services will also be expanded to new companies which are expected to be established in ECER, it said.

Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Datuk Dr Maximus Ongkili, said with the development of Tanjung Agas in Pekan, Pahang as part of ECER zone to create activities in petrochemical and fabrication engineering work, the demand for these services was expected to grow significantly.

"This will provide opportunities for employment to the local community and small medium enterprises (SME) technical support services," he said.

SIRIM, he said, has been actively involved in SME development activities, which included the enhancement of product packaging and labelling in the food-related industry.

"This is in line with the objective of ECER in upgrading and improving the product presentation of companies which are operating in this region," he said.

He said SIRIM has also proposed to train and assist welders to be qualified underwater welders and inspectors under the Tenth Malaysia Plan (10MP).

Ongkili said this skill was in demand especially in the petrochemical (offshore), port, marine (ship maintenance and repair) and liquid-filled tanks.

For this, he said, SIRIM proposed an allocation RM6 million under the 10MP to cover infrastructure development, human capital development and equipment for the underwater welding centre in Pahang.

SEZ set to fire up economic growth
Published: 2009/08/06



siness Times talks to Datuk Jebasingam Issace John, CEO of the ECER Development Council that will coordinate all projects under the Special Economic Zone

Malaysia’s economy, specifically the East Coast Economic Region (ECER), will see a resurgence with the introduction of the country’s first Special Economic Zone, which was recently launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

The SEZ is aimed at generating investments of RM90 billion by 2020.

An integrated development zone stretching from Kertih, Chukai, Kuantan Port City, Kuantan, Gambang to Pekan, with special incentives to draw in investments, the SEZ will foster a conducive business environment, accelerate growth and economic development.

The SEZ is expected to contribute RM23 billion to the national GDP and create 220,000 new jobs out of the 560,000 jobs under the ECER Master Plan.

Business Times talks to DATUK JEBASINGAM ISSACE JOHN, chief executive officer of the ECER Development Council which will monitor and coordinate all projects under the SEZ.


Q: Why is the ECER SEZ limited to this area only?

A: While the SEZ forms only 6 per cent of the ECER land mass, the area has a significant impact as it creates 50 per cent of all jobs and 80 per cent of economic output set out in the ECER Master Plan.

Because it contains mature activities such as oil, gas, petrochemical, manufacturing plants and industries, the area has economies of scale for development, concentrating on the provision of infrastructure and facilities as well as customised incentives.

Q: Will the SEZ draw investments away from the other ECER districts?

A : Other projects and initiatives under the ECER Master Plan will continue as planned. While the SEZ's focus is on manufacturing and industrial activities, projects for the tourism, agriculture and education clusters will continue uninterrupted outside the SEZ.

In fact, the rest will act as hinterland catchment areas supplying feedstock to support the development of the Collection, Processing and Promotion Centres (CPPC) for the agro based industries and manufacturing products meant for the domestic and export markets.

Studies are also under way to explore the possibility of a second SEZ within ECER for an integrated development throughout the region. One of the areas being studied is the vicinity near Tok Bali - Besut and its immediate environs along the border of Kelantan and Terengganu.

Q: How competitive are the SEZ's incentives in comparison with other international SEZs?

A: Several fiscal and non-fiscal incentives have been introduced to boost the SEZ's competitiveness. These are supplemented by customised incentives for qualified investors.

Supplementing these incentives, the SEZ will be backed by modern infrastructure and specialised institutions to enhance skills and competencies.

It will be one of the first truly integrated SEZs with new townships, international tourism sites, served by four ports, two airports and knowledge innovation zones.

Processing of applications will also be fast tracked through ECER's one-stop centres established at all ECER Development Council offices, while infrastructure projects are designed to cut down access time to port, airport or highway to 45 minutes.

Utilities will be upgraded with uninterrupted delivery while its port throughput will grow to 70 million metric tonnes by 2020.

Q: Why launch the SEZ now when the economy is still in the doldrums and may affect investments?

A: The idea of an SEZ is timely as it paves the way for recovery. When the up-cycle comes around, SEZ has already put ECER in the forefront in the minds of investors.

In addition, the ECER has committed to the construction and upgrading of infrastructure and supporting facilities which will have a multiplier effect to the growth and development of the Region.

Q: How will ECERDC prioritise between SEZ and ECER? Will ECER's milestone targets change now?

A: The projects in the SEZ are all subsets of the ECER Master Plan and will fuel ECER's growth. Meanwhile, all other ECER projects and programs outside of SEZ will continue to have the same priority and will be implemented as planned.

This means that in addition to the SEZ's focus on manufacturing and industrial activities, projects for the tourism, agriculture and education clusters will continue uninterrupted outside the SEZ, acting as hinterland catchment to supply feedstock for the agro based industries and manufacturing products.

Without the SEZ, the ECER Master Plan targets for 2020 will be difficult to achieve due to the unexpected slowdown in the global economy.

Also, any investments derived for the SEZ will benefit the rest of the region, especially from growth of various economic and commercial activities within the ECER.

This is supported by research showing higher urbanisation correlates to higher economic output and has a positive impact in generating employment and business opportunities in the adjacent areas.

Q: Will SEZ's activities displace agriculture?

A: The SEZ's activities will not displace agriculture but rather it will enhance and create new opportunities for farmers through anchor company and contract farming arrangements, as well as supply chain and value chain integration and enhanced branding, packaging and marketing efforts.

One project focus of the SEZ is agriculture-based industries such as the grain-based animal feed, livestock processing, fisheries processing and halal industry. All these require farming and raw material input, increasing demand for agriculture produce.

Q: What is the employment ratio between local and foreign workers within the ECER?

A: There is no restriction on employment. The priority for jobs will be given to local workers, while unlimited expatriate knowledge workers for management positions can be brought in to fill positions which they are better qualified for.

However, there will be a mandatory portion of local employment required to ensure transfer of technology and employment of skilled labour from the educational institutions in the region.

ECER rancang wujudkan Zon Ekonomi Khas kedua


MAJLIS Pembangunan Wilayah Ekonomi Pantai Timur (ECER) merancang mewujudkan Zon Ekonomi Khas (SEZ) yang kedua untuk memastikan pembangunan bersepadu di seluruh wilayah berkenaan.

Ketua Eksekutifnya, Datuk Jebasingam Issace John, berkata antara kawasan yang sedang dikaji bagi dijadikan SEZ kedua itu adalah sekitar Tok Bali dan Besut serta kawasan berhampiran di sepanjang sempadan Kelantan dan Terengganu.

Dalam temu bual dengan Berita Harian dan Business Times, beliau berkata langkah kerajaan mewujudkan SEZ pertama yang meliputi kawasan dari Kertih dan Chukai di Terengganu sehingga ke Bandar Pelabuhan Kuantan, Kuantan, Gambang dan Pekan di Pahang akan menyediakan rangsangan kukuh bagi pelaburan di ECER.


Katanya, zon dengan tumpuan terhadap kegiatan berteknologi tinggi dan sektor perkhidmatan yang dilancarkan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak kelmarin itu disasarkan menarik pelaburan berjumlah RM90 bilion menjelang 2020 dan mewujudkan 220,000 pekerjaan baru.

Bagi mencapai matlamat itu, katanya, beberapa insentif fiskal dan bukan fiskal telah diperkenalkan bagi meningkatkan lagi daya saing SEZ, di samping insentif yang dirangka khusus untuk pelabur yang layak.

“Bagi menyokong insentif itu pula, SEZ akan menyediakan prasarana moden serta institusi khusus untuk meningkatkan kepakaran dan kecekapan.

“Pemprosesan permohonan juga akan dipercepatkan menerusi pusat sehenti ECER yang diwujudkan di pejabat Majlis Pembangunan ECER, manakala projek prasarana pula direka bentuk supaya dapat mengurangkan jarak perjalanan ke pelabuhan, lapangan terbang atau lebuh raya kepada 45 minit,” katanya.

Jebasingam bagaimanapun menegaskan, langkah kerajaan mewujudkan SEZ tidak akan menjejaskan kemasukan pelaburan ke dalam kawasan lain dalam ECER.

Beliau berkata, ini kerana pelbagai projek dan inisiatif lain di bawah Pelan Induk ECER akan diteruskan mengikut perancangan.

“Walaupun tumpuan SEZ adalah dalam kegiatan pembuatan dan perindustrian, projek untuk kelompok pelancongan, pertanian dan pendidikan di luar SEZ akan terus tidak terganggu,” katanya.

Malah tegasnya, projek berkenaan akan bertindak sebagai sumber pembekalan bahan mentah untuk menyokong pembangunan pusat pungutan, pemprosesan dan penggalakkan (PPC) bagi industri berasaskan pertanian dan pengeluaran produk untuk tujuan eksport dan pasaran tempatan.

Kegiatan di SEZ juga, katanya, tidak akan menggantikan kegiatan pertanian tetapi ia akan menggalakkan lagi sektor itu dan ia juga akan membuka peluang baru kepada petani menerusi kontrak pembekalan, serta daya usaha pemasaran, penjenamaan dan pembungkusan.

Beliau turut menegaskan bahawa tanpa SEZ, sasaran yang ditetapkan dalam Pelan Induk ECER adalah sukar untuk dicapai berikutan kelembapan ekonomi global yang tidak dijangkakan.

Nik Aziz's presence at ECER zone launch 'bodes well for ties'
2009/08/07


BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN: Kelantan Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat's presence at the launch of the East Coast Economic Region's Special Economic Zone two days ago shows the Pas leader's desire to forge good relations with the Federal Government, said the prime minister here yesterday.

Datuk Seri Najib Razak said relations between the Federal Government and state governments, especially those under opposition rule, should not be an issue but the interests of the people, including in Kelantan, should be given attention in a fair manner.

"A high degree of understanding (between the Federal Government and Kelantan government) cannot be achieved within a short time, but what is important is the sincerity and mutual respect shown by the leaders of both sides," he told Malaysian journalists on the last day of his official visit to Brunei.

Najib was asked to comment on Nik Aziz's statement that he was grateful for the extraordinary reception from the prime minister during his visit to Pekan.

"I appreciate Nik Aziz's comments and his willingness to participate in that day's programme."

Najib was referring to Nik Aziz comments that he had never received such a warm reception from previous prime ministers, besides being impressed with Najib's generosity with his smile as well as the various areas they visited.

Najib said as prime minister, he wanted to be fair to all Malaysians. -- Bernama

Development authority might be revived
Monday August 24, 2009

ROMPIN: The Federal Government is mulling over the suggestion to revive the defunct Pahang Tenggara Development Authority (Dara) to spur economic development in the south-eastern areas.

Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal said a high-profile meeting would be held “very soon.” with the state government to discuss the issue.

“We feel that Dara can be revived so that the southeastern areas in Pahang can be better co-ordinated and more organised in their development.

“However, we must also ensure its role will not affect the development programmes of the East Coast Economic Region (ECER) masterplan,” he said after opening the Rompin Umno division delegates’ meeting here recently.

Shafie, who is also Umno vice-president, said many aspects needed to be considered before a decision was made on the proposed revival.

He said among others, Dara must be tailored to meet the needs of infrastructure, industrial and tourism development to benefit the public at large.

Shafie was responding to a suggestion by Rompin Umno division chief Datuk Seri Dr Jamaluddin Jarjis who urged the Government to revive Dara to help achieve a more balanced development in southeasterly districts namely Rompin, Maran, Pekan, Paya Besar and Bera.

“It is a good suggestion and I will personally look into it, to see whether it is viable to be revived.

“Most importantly, we do not want Pahang to be left behind compared to other states,” he said.

Shafie said if the suggestion received the green light, more funds could be allocated to expedite development projects in those areas.

1,000 hardcore poor await land approval under ECER
2009/08/24


The South Kelantan Development Authority (Kesedar) is still waiting for approval from the state government to relocate 1,000 hardcore poor at a 960-hectare site in Rantau Manis under the East Coast Economic Region (ECER) programme.

Kesedar General Manager Mohd Arshad Ismail said the matter was discussed between the Gua Musang Land and Administration Office, state Land and Mineral Resources office and the state government.

"We will wait for the outcome but we hope the land approval can be done soon. Once we receive the approval, proposed plans under the programme, including building 990 houses for the settlers will be carried out," he told Bernama.

The ECER is expected to attract investment worth RM112 billion over a 12-year period, starting from 2008 when it was launched. Apart from developing the region, the launch of ECER is also aimed at eradicating poverty by 2010.


"Kesedar''s responsibility is to identify the settlers while ECER will carry out the implementation of the programme as planned," said Mohd Arshad.

Mohd Arshad expressed confidence that those participating in the programme would be able to earn more than RM1,000 a month. - Bernama

RM3bil steel factory in Kemaman


KUALA TERENGGANU: A proposed RM3bil steel factory to be built in Telok Kalong, Kemaman, will become Terengganu’s third major steel factory once completed on a 400ha site.

State Industrial, Trade and Environment Committee chairman Toh Chin Yaw said that with the addition of the new steel plant, the Government hoped to see Teluk Kalong become a steel manufacturing centre.

The other two factories in Kemaman are Perwaja Steel Sdn Bhd and Lion Plate.

Toh, who is also Bandar assemblyman, was speaking to reporters after attending his constituency’s Ihya Ramadan programme at Abidin Mosque here.

He said land was being cleared for the new factory which was expected to provide over 2,000 jobs for the locals when it was operational in two or three years’ time.

He disclosed that the consortium comprised investors from Malaysia, China and Australia.

Toh said Terengganu had received tremendous interest from foreign investors, such as from Iran, China, Australia, Taiwan and the Middle East. - Bernama

Government Spends RM12 Million Develop Manik Urai
August 30, 2009 20:48 PM

GUA MUSANG, Aug 30(Bernama) -- The government has spent RM12 million to implement several projects for the benefit of the people living in the Manik Urai constituency as promised in the July 14 by-election.

Kelantan Umno chief Datuk Mustapa Mohamed said the implementation of projects proved that the Barisan Nasional government was serious in providing what was promised.

He said from the allocation, RM3.5 million was to repair schools, RM2 million to repair and build new houses for the poor and another RM4 million on building roads in the constituency.

Mustapa said, the balance of RM7.9 million was channeled to government agencies, including the Public Works Department and the Kelantan Federal Development Department.

"We are planning to implement many more facilities in Manik Urai with new applications being forwarded to Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak," � he told reporters after having a meeting with Kelantan Selatan Development Authority staff here, Sunday.

He added that the federal government planned to develop Gua Musang as the second biggest town in Kelantan after Kota Bharu, and develop inter connecting roads involving the states of Pahang, Perak and Terengganu as outlined in the East Coast Economic Region (ECER).

Mustapha, who is also the Minister of International Trade and Industry, said the government was focusing on the development of Gua Musang, as it was a strategic area to bring more investors and people from the northern Kelantan.

"The government does not want the people in northern Kelantan to be in poverty, therefore it is better for them to move to Gua Musang," he said.

Taman Industri Minyak Berstatus Zon Perdagangan Bebas
Saturday, 20 June 2009 21:25

PEKAN, (Bernama) -- Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak berkata kerajaan sedia menimbang menjadikan Taman Industri Minyak, Gas dan Maritim, Tanjong Agas, di Pekan, berstatus Zon Perdagangan Bebas.

Beliau berkata pertimbangan menjadikannya sebagai zon perdagangan bebas tertakluk kepada syarat-syarat tertentu."Projek ini bertepatan dan bersesuaian dengan kehendak dan keperluan semasa dalam usaha negara kita meningkatkan lagi usaha mencari gali dan pengeluaran minyak mentah dan gas asli," katanya ketika berucap pada majlis pecah tanah Taman Industri Minyak, Gas dan Maritim Tanjong Agas, di sini hari ini.

Majlis pecah tanah projek melibatkan kawasan seluas 1,704 hektar dengan kos RM2 bilion itu dirasmikan oleh Sultan Pahang Sultan Ahmad Shah. Turut hadir ialah Tengku Mahkota Pahang Tengku Abdullah, Pengerusi Tanjong Agas SupplyBase & Marine Services Sdn Bhd Tengku Muda Pahang, Tengku Abdul Rahman dan Menteri Besar Pahang, Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob.

Najib berkata projek itu berpotensi mendapat sambutan menggalakkan daripada pelabur asing dan tempatan untuk menempatkan operasi mereka seperti limbungan kapal, fabrikasi, pangkalan bekalan dan terminal penyimpanan minyak. "Ia merupakan pencapaian memberangsangkan dan akan memberi perubahan dari segi ekonomi, dengan unjuran Fasa 1 akan mewujudkan 5,000 peluang pekerjaan dan selepas 10 tahun dijangka mewujudkan 30,000 peluang pekerjaan," kata Najib.

Najib berkata kerajaan menyokong projek berkenaan kerana selain membuka peluang pekerjaan, ia juga akan merancakkan lagi sektor perkhidmatan dan memberi limpahan kepada ekonomi hiliran. "Kerajaan telah meluluskan peruntukan sebanyak RM150 juta sebelum ini untuk menjayakan projek ini dan Insya-Allah, kita akan tambah lagi peruntukan pada masa akan datang," katanya. Najib berkata kerajaan akan sentiasa peka terhadap keperluan dan bantuan terhadap projek itu dan mahu semua jabatan dan agensi kerajaan turut membantu usaha syarikat itu serta pelabur dari segi permohonan dan kelulusan lesen-lesen dan insentif tertentu supaya mereka dapat beroperasi dengan segera.

"Projek ini akan memberi kesan terhadap usaha kerajaan untuk melaksanakan konsep modal ekonomi baru, dan satu daripada punca penjanaan pertumbuhan negara adalah daripada sektor perkhidmatan. "Ketika ini sektor perkhidmatan menjana 54 peratus KDNK negara dan kita berharap ia meningkat kepada 70 peratus," katanya. Majlis pelancaran projek itu sebelum ini disempurnakan Sultan Pahang pada 16 Feb lepas di Kuala Lumpur, dan projek itu dijangka siap dalam tempoh lima dan tujuh tahun.

Pahang To Appoint Three Businessmen To ECER Committee

Kerajaan Pusat setuju bina pelabuhan - Nik Aziz

KOTA BHARU 10 Sept. - Kerajaan Pusat bersetuju untuk membina sebuah pelabuhan di Semerak, Tok Bali dekat sini di bawah pelan pembangunan Wilayah Ekonomi Pantai Timur (ECER).

Kerajaan negeri menyifatkan persetujuan tersebut membuktikan Kerajaan Pusat memberikan kerjasama yang terbaik kepada Kelantan di sebalik pelbagai kontroversi yang melanda sebelum ini.

Menteri Besar, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat berkata, pihaknya telah dimaklumkan oleh Kerajaan Pusat mengenai persetujuan tersebut dan telah menyediakan tanah di kawasan berkenaan untuk pembinaan projek itu.

Katanya, Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak dijadualkan menghadiri majlis pecah tanah pelabuhan berkenaan yang belum ditentukan tarikhnya.

''Kerajaan Pusat bersetuju dengan cadangan kita untuk membina pelabuhan di Semerak, Tok Bali dan saya telah menulis surat menjemput Perdana Menteri datang ke majlis pecah tanah pelabuhan ini.

''Kita telah sediakan tanah di kawasan berkenaan dan pada masa ini sedang menunggu tarikh dari pejabat Perdana Menteri untuk adakan majlis pecah tanah ini,'' katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian kepada pemberita pada majlis perasmian pecah tanah pembinaan kilang paip besi keluli di Kawasan Perindustrian Pengkalan Chepa II di sini hari ini.

Kilang tersebut merupakan satu-satunya kilang pengeluaran paip jenis besi keluli di Pantai Timur dan mampu mencapai pengeluaran di antara 15,000 sehingga 20,000 tan metrik setahun apabila beroperasi pada pertengahan tahun depan.

Sebelum ini, kerajaan mencadangkan supaya sebuah pelabuhan dibina di Tumpat bagi membantu membangunkan negeri ini.

Nik Abdul Aziz bagaimanapun tidak memberitahu kos serta maklumat lanjut mengenai pembinaan pelabuhan tersebut.

''Ini menunjukkan kerjasama di antara kerajaan (Pusat) dengan kerajaan (negeri) berjalan dengan baik tanpa membabitkan perbezaan parti politik,'' katanya.
