Northern firms embrace solar
SATURDAY, 11 JULY 2009 14:00 webmaster
Saturday July 4, 2009

GEORGE TOWN: Companies in the northern region are now making strategic moves to enter into the solar power business, as the Malaysian Industrial Development Authority (MIDA) has identified solar power sector as a new source of growth for the economy.
Three public-listed companies in Penang, P. I.E. Industrial Bhd, Ire-Tex Corp Bhd, and Pentamaster Corp Bhd, have recently invested to tap into the growing market demand for solar products in the country and in the world.

The global revenue from solar panels (known also as photovoltaic panels) is expected to rise to US$17.8bil in 2010, up 38.2% from 2009. Revenue will rise by another 11.1% in 2011 and by 29.1% in 2012, according to US-based market research company, iSuppli Corp.

Solar power, a green and renewable energy source, is the conversion of sunlight into electricity via the use of solar cells installed in a solar panel.

P’ng Soo Hong (inset) says the challenge is for SMEs to tap into their 30 years of semiconductor experience to shorten the learning curve of solar technology

Ire-Tex managing director Datuk Dr Donald Yap Tatt Keat told StarBizWeek that the group had recently invested about RM3.5mil to acquire the know-how and technology to produce packaging materials for solar panels at its premise in Bukit Tengah Industrial Park.

The demand for packaging materials by the solar industry in the country was expected to grow to RM120mil in 2012, Yap added.

“This year the solar industry demand for special packaging materials is estimated to worth around RM50mil, and is expected to grow to RM80mil next year.

“We expect the solar packaging material business to generate some 40% of the group’s revenue this year. There are three to four companies in Malaysia capable of designing and manufacturing packaging materials for the solar industry.

“We work closely with our customers to design and manufacture their packaging materials,” Yap added.

Pentamaster Corp Bhd has also recently entered the solar power business by teaming with a US-based solar company to develop solar trackers at its plant in Bayan Lepas.

Pentamaster executive chairman C.B. Chuah said solar trackers traced the positioning of the sun to maximise heat reception for the solar panels, which would increase solar power generation from 20% to 40%.

He added that the group had so far spent RM1mil to acquire the technology to develop solar trackers.

“The global revenue from solar panel installation is expected to grow to US$23.5bil in 2010 from US$18bil in 2009. The revenue is forecast to increase to US$37bil in 2011 and US$59bil in 2012, hitting eventually US$90bil in 2013,” he added.

Chuah said the customers for the solar trackers would come from the local solar power industry and utility companies overseas that use solar energy.

P.I.E. Industrial Bhd has invested in a RM30mil facility in Seberang Jaya to make solar panel cables this year.

Group managing director Alvin Mui said it was now waiting for the relevant TUV certification from Germany to manufacture the solar panel cables.

“This move is to diversify further our manufacturing capability and mitigate the impact of the global recession. We look forward to supplying to the new multinational corporations (MNCs) in the country that are involved in the solar panel business.

“The use of solar energy is becoming increasingly popular as global warming is now a primary concern,” Mui said.

The market in the country which Ire-Tex and Pentamaster planned to tap into are five MNCs involved in the solar power generation business that have either started operations or are planning to start operations in Malaysia next year.

To date, Malaysia has attracted five foreign direct investments, worth up to RM13.8bil, to set up solar PV manufacturing facilities in Malaysia.

These include US-based companies First Solar Inc at the Kulim Hi Tech Park (KHTP) and US-based SunPower Corp in Malacca, the China-based ReneSola in Johor Baru, the German company Q-Cells in Selangor Science Park 2, and the Japanese firm Tokuyama Corp in Sarawak.

First Solar Inc started operations of its RM2bil at the KHTP last April, while Q-Cells is expected to start operations in the fourth quarter of 2009.

ReneSola, SunPower, and Tokuyama are scheduled to commence operations next year. Collectively, these companies are expected to provide 11,500 jobs by 2010.

It is learnt that another US solar company, Solar Tech, is currently negotiating with the state government to set up a production facility in Bukit Minyak Science Park.

Meanwhile, First Solar Malaysia managing director P’ng Soo Hong told StarBizWeek that the challenge was for small and medium0scale enterprises (SMEs) to tap into their 30 years of semiconductor experience to shorten the learning curve of solar technology.

“The SMEs in the country need to acquire the necessary solar panel technology if they want to become a part of the eco-system supplying to the growing solar industry in the country.

“They need to invest to acquire the necessary know-how and understand the needs of the solar panel industry before they can provide support for it,” he said.

P’ng said First Solar currently sourced certain components used in the solar panels from local SMEs.

“These are the few SMEs that First Solar has shared its needs and production requirements with, as they are among the handful in the country that understand and can manufacture the components according to our specifications,” he added.

P’ng said First Solar would like to see more SMEs equipped with solar module technology manufacturing know-how mushroom in the country.

“If we could source the necessary components locally, then we would not need to buy them from overseas. This would then position us to operate more cost effectively,” he said.

The present priority of First Solar is to train its 2,400 workforce based in KHTP on good solar module technology manufacturing.

“The staff, ranging from engineers to operators, are sent to the United States and Germany for training,” he said.

At its RM2bil plant in KHTP, First Solar manufactures solar modules with an advanced thin film semiconductor technology.

The advanced manufacturing process transforms a piece of glass into a complete solar module in less than 2.5 hours. The glass, equipped with semiconductor materials and processes, receives and stores the heat from the sun, before channelling the heat for conversion into electricity.

First Solar also assembles components that are sourced locally and from overseas for use in the solar panels.

During challenging times what are Perlis, Penang and Kedah doing?
During these challenging times, StarBiz looks at what Perlis, Kulim Hi-Tech Park in Kedah, and Penang have to offer to rope in investments


PERLIS is rushing along with Kedah and Penang to attract investments in this economic crisis.

Perlis State Economic Development Corp (PSEDC) general manager Zulkafli Ahmad said PSEDC was now developing a 161-acre site in Pauh into an industrial zone.

“The Pauh High Technology Park will have first-class power and telecommunications infrastructure. For the first phase, we are developing 77 acres of the 161-acre site.

“So far, we have got hold of Pentamaster Corp Bhd to come over to set up a plant with a built-up area of over 200,000 sq ft on a 10-acre site,” he said.

He added that two more high-tech electronics multinational corporations were interested in coming to Pauh.

Pentamaster, which is involved in making automated equipment and glove-recycling machines, is headquartered in Penang.

Zulkafli said the cost of skilled employment in Perlis was about 30% lower than in Penang.

For example, the wage of an engineer in Perlis is RM2,000 compared with RM3,000 in Penang, while the pay of a technician is RM1,400 compared with RM2,000 in Penang.

He said PSEDC also offered attractive rental rates for buildings that it built and leased.

“The monthly rental rates are RM2 per sq ft compared with RM2.50 per sq ft in Penang, while a 60-year leasehold industrial land is sold between RM5 to RM6.50 per sq ft.

“The rates are negotiable, depending on the size of the investments,” Zulkafli said.

To date, PSEDC has developed over 230 acres at four industrial areas in Perlis.

“There is no more space in these areas. That is why we are developing the Pauh Hi-Tech Industrial Area, the fifth industrial zone,” he said.

There are also tertiary education institutions such as Universiti Malaysia Perlis, Universiti Teknologi Mara, Maktab Rendah Sains Mara and Institut Kemahiran Mara which can produce a variety of skilled workers to support industries in Perlis.

In Kedah, Kulim Technology Park Corp Sdn Bhd, which is wholly-owned by Kedah State Development Corp, also offers attractive rates for the lease of its industrial land, water usage and land assessment fee.

In Kulim Hi-Tech Park (KHTP), 60-year leasehold industrial land are sold at about RM18 per sq ft compared with about RM30 per sq ft in Bayan Lepas, Penang.

“The rates are negotiable, depending on the size. For facilities in the KHTP Business Centre, rates for the administrative, technology and IT centres are from 80 sen to RM1.40 per sq ft.

“These facilities can be used as research and development laboratories or incubators,” said Kulim Technology Park Corp (KTPC) president Muhamad Sobri Osman.

KTPC offers attractive incentives to woo investors to move to KHTP.

“We encourage technopreneurs in electrical and electronics as well as information technology (IT) industries to take up our incubators in KHTP with offers of start-up waivers on rentals for a pre-determined period.

“Workers in the tenant companies will also be given special discounts on properties and resort memberships based on certain mutually-agreed criteria,” Muhamad said.

Similar properties equipped with IT facilities such as the Suntech Tower in Bayan Baru, Penang, for example, are rented out for about RM3 per sq ft.

“The wages in KHTP are similar to those offered in Penang. But over here, the cost of living is lower, thus enabling a worker to have a higher disposable income.

“In Kulim, a worker needs to pay around RM125,000 for a double-storey house while in Penang, he needs to pay at least RM350,000 for a similar property,” he said.

In Penang, howeverinvestPenang general manager Wan Zailena Noordin said the state competed by providing services to investors.

“All incentives are from the Federal Government. Penang does not offer additional incentives.

“We work closely with Malaysia Industrial Development Authority (Mida) to offer the incentives, provide solutions and guide investors through the various processes to obtain approvals.

“If an investor wants to lease a building, we will introduce him to third parties so that he can negotiate the best rental rates,” she said.

Zailena said Mida also offered customised incentives for businesses.

“Companies can negotiate with Mida directly for these customised incentives, which are tailored according to the size of their investments.”

She said the bulk of the small and medium industries that supply to multinational corporations and other large companies were located in Penang.

“The livebility of Penang also attracts students to study and work in the state, which enables it to serve as a hub for a variety of skilled labour.

“This is Penang’s competitive edge. If your company is in Penang, then you are close to suppliers and skilled human resources,” she added.

GUH Holdings Bhd managing director Datuk Kenneth H’ng said Penang remained an attractive investment location despite the higher labour costs.

H’ng said Penang was a hub for raw material suppliers and small and medium-sized industries (SMIs).

“If an entrepreneur sets up his business in another state, he would still have to pay for the transportation costs of raw materials and support services to be sent over to him.

“These charges alone would offset whatever savings he would make from the lower cost of labour available in the other state,” he said.

Penang’s attraction as an investment haven depended on the nature of an investor’s business, he added.

“If the business requires a higher set of skills and regular support from SMIs, then Penang is still the place to invest,” H’ng reckoned

Utara: Diskaun beli tanah galak pelabur tanam modal
April 20th, 2009 by admin


KERAJAAN Kedah menawarkan pelbagai insentif kepada pelabur asing dan tempatan untuk menggalakkan mereka terus menanam modal di negeri ini, terutama dalam kegawatan ekonomi global, kata Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Industri, Pelaburan dan Industri Asas Tani negeri, Datuk Amiruddin Hamzah.

Beliau berkata, antara langkah diambil, termasuk memberikan diskaun harga tanah kepada pelabur yang berminat menanam modal membabitkan kawasan perindustrian diuruskan Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Kedah (PKNK) dan di Taman Teknologi Tinggi Kulim (KHTP).

“Mesyuarat Exco sudah meluluskan supaya kita memberi diskaun ke atas pembelian tapak untuk industri yang diuruskan agensi atau anak syarikat kerajaan negeri, selain membenarkan tempoh bayaran ansuran dipanjangkan bagi mengurangkan beban pelabur.

“Selain itu, kerajaan negeri juga meningkatkan tahap keselamatan dan memasang lampu jalan di kawasan industri supaya memberi imej yang baik kepada pelabur, manakala penubuhan pusat sehenti yang bertujuan membantu mempercepatkan proses kelulusan untuk pelabur sudah menampakkan hasil.

“Kerajaan negeri juga akan memantau proses yang perlu dilalui pelabur sehingga kilang mereka beroperasi supaya masalah yang timbul dapat diatasi dengan kadar segera,” katanya menjawab soalan Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid (BN-Pedu), semalam.

Mahdzir yang juga Ketua Pembangkang ingin tahu apa langkah diambil kerajaan negeri untuk memastikan Kedah terus menjadi destinasi pilihan pelabur, terutama ketika krisis ekonomi dunia sekarang.


Amiruddin berkata, kerajaan negeri juga sudah berbincang dengan Lembaga Pembangunan Perindustrian Malaysia (Mida) untuk memperkenalkan insentif lain dan ia akan diumumkan lembaga berkenaan tidak lama lagi.

Katanya, kerajaan negeri juga berusaha keras memastikan Kedah terus kekal berdaya saing untuk menarik pelabur menanam modal terutama ketika pelbagai pihak berdepan kesan kegawatan ekonomi dunia.

Menjawab soalan tambahan Mahdzir, Amiruddin berkata, kerajaan negeri dengan bantuan Jabatan Tenaga Kerja (JTK) turut membantu menempatkan semula pekerja kilang yang diberhentikan.

Electronics group sees decline in workforce
SATURDAY, 11 JULY 2009 13:54 webmaster
Saturday July 4, 2009

GEORGE TOWN: The Malaysian American Electronics Industry (MAEI) expects the workforce employed by its 17 members to drop to 53,376 this year from 56,213 in 2008.
“This reduction is due to the termination of contractual workers and the voluntary separation schemes implemented since last October,” chairman Datuk S.H. Wong said in an interview.

Last December, Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam announced that over 4,700 workers would be retrenched by 137 employers in the first quarter of 2009.

Of this figure, some 1,500 were from the Kuching plant of Western Digital, a member of MAEI.

“Some of these electrical and electronics (E&E) companies that have started replacing staff have seen (business) volume coming back,” said Wong.

In Penang, multinational corporations (MNCs) and local companies have either started selective recruitment or are about to start it in the second half of 2009.

A source close to Motorola said the facility in Bayan Lepas was now re-hiring for the second half.

“The plant is recruiting more or less 100 engineers for a variety of new two-way radio projects,” the source said, adding that Motorola’s sales were slightly affected -- between 5% and 10% -- due to the global slowdown in the first quarter.

Intel Malaysia corporate affairs manager Loo Cheng Cheng said selective hiring was now carried out.

Loo said the recruitment was for projects that required critical skills.

“Intel was able to offer comparable positions in its newer facilities in Penang and Kulim to all manufacturing employees affected by the announced closure of its two older facilities in Penang,” she added.

Jabil Circuit, which assembles printed circuit boards (PCBs), is also in the process of recruiting 100 workers for the material procurement and sourcing division at its plant in Bayan Lepas.

”We are recruiting because Jabil is transferring additional activities from the United States to Penang.

“Orders for Jabil’s PCB products have stabilised, and in May the plant reinstated the five-day workweek,” he said.

Entegris (Kulim) plant manager Chai Eng Leng said the plant in Kulim Hi-Tech Park (KHTP) had been recruiting since May due to an increase in the orders from existing customers.

“Our customers in Asia-Pacific who have kept a low inventory earlier this year are now reordering from us. These are customers from South Korea, Taiwan, and China,” he said.

Chai said the group had so far hired some 50 workers to fill the positions of technicians and engineers, increasing the workforce at KHTP to 525.

“While we are stillrecruiting, we are still observing closely the global economic situation,” he said.

Entegris manufactures semiconductor protective material products at the KHTP facility for the semiconductor industry.

Local companies involved in the electronics and hard disk drive industries are also recruiting.

Globetronics Technology Bhd chief financial officer Ng Kok Choon said the group had taken in about 100 operators since May to meet new orders.

“Our order book is filled up till August. Hopefully the upward trend will continue into the fourth quarter. The demand for our integrated circuits come from Asia-Pacific and the US markets,” he added.

Eng Teknologi Holdings Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Y.K. Teh also said the group had since May been recruiting for its facilities in the Philippines, Thailand, China, and Malaysia.

The recruitment exercise was to meet the growing demand taking place largely in Asia-Pacific, primarily from its Japanese and US customers, Teh added.

“We are looking at adding an extra headcount of 500 to the existing workforce of the group which currently stands at about 4,100.

“We plan to increase the workforce in Malaysia to 1,700 from 1,500 by August. Overseas, we want to increase the headcount to 2,900 from the present 2,600, also by August.

“All these recruits, comprising largely contractual workers, are to fill the operator and production positions. While we are recruiting, we are also wary of the market conditions in the hard disk drive industry. That is why we are engaging largely contractual employees,” he added.

MAEI’s Wong said that it expected second-quarter performance to be “better” than the first quarter.

The performance of the E&E sector for the second quarter is expected to be announced by Matrade in either late July or early August.

The 17 companies in MAEI include Intel, Dell, and Motorola. Collectively, they employ more than 55,000 people.

The Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers president Datuk Mustafa Mansur, meanwhile, said signs of rehiring were there. In a recent survey, 22 out of 63 companies indicated that they had started rehiring.

Nasi Ayam Periuk Besar Zaidi Semakin Hampir Ke Arah Francais

KULIM, 27 Mei (Bernama) — Bermula dengan minat mendalam terhadap nasi ayam, kini Mohamed Zaidi Mohamed Nooh, 41, pemilik Restoran Nasi Ayam Periuk Besar (NAPB) bukan sahaja terkenal di Kedah malah berjaya mengujudkan 18 cawangannya di beberapa negeri di Utara dan Selangor.

Cawangan-cawangan yang beroperasi secara separuh francais itu termasuklah enam di Kedah, Pulau Pinang (empat), Perak (lima), Selangor (dua) dan Perlis (satu).

“Cuma sebuah cawangan sahaja yang diusahakan oleh anak lelaki saya Mohd Zainol Hizar, di Kulim manakala yang lainnya pula dijalankan oleh individu yang menggunakan segala perencah resepi nasi ayam yang dibekalkan oleh syarikat (Nasi Ayam Periuk Besar Enterprise),” katanya ketika ditemui di restoran utamanya di Kampung Kepala Titi, Sungai Kob, dekat sini hari ini.

Restoran berukuran 2,000 kaki persegi yang beroperasi sejak 2002 atas nama Nasi Ayam Periok Besar Enterprise terletak di tebing Sungai Kob dan di tepi jalan raya KM16 Jalan Kulim-Mahang, kini mampu membekalkan perencah nasi ayam sebanyak 2.0 tonne sebulan kepada cawangan-cawangannya.

Beliau kini berhasrat meluaskan lagi usahanya ke arah mewujudkan taraf francais nasi ayamnya itu dengan menyasarkan pembinaan sebuah kilang memproses perencah nasi ayam berharga RM1 juta disebuah tapak berhampiran dengan restorannya yang berharga RM180,000.

Katanya kilang itu kelak akan didirikan di atas tapak seluas 0.5 ekar dengan kemudahan pusat penyembelihan dan memproses ayam, peti sejuk beku dan mesin memproses rempah dan perencah nasi ayam yang lebih kemaskini.

“Dengan wujudnya kilang ini kelak, saya berazam mengeluarkan perencah nasi ayam antara 5.0 hingga 6.0 tonne sebulan dan mampu membekalkan kepada lebih 50 lagi cawangan di seluruh Semenanjung”,” katanya penuh semangat.

Mohd Zaidi berkata beliau memulakan perniagaan nasi ayam, bihun sup, dan mee kuah ketam sejak 25 tahun lepas dengan menggunakan sebuah kereta sorong roda tiga di Pekan Karangan, dekat sini, yang terletak kira-kira 2.0 kilometer dari lokasi restorannya sekarang ini.

Pada permulaannya, katanya beliau cuma mempu menjual dua ekor ayam sehari yang kemudiannya meningkat sehingga 25 ekor sehari dilokasi pertama itu.

“Sejak 2000, selepas berpindah ke lokasi sekarang, jualannya meningkat hingga 120 ekor ayam dan 90 kilogram nasi sehari dengan bantuan 14 orang pekerja,” katanya. Beliau berkerja sebagai pemandu teksi sebelum menceburkan diri dalam bidang itu.

Menu utama yang disediakan restoran tersebut adalah nasi ayam mengikut pilihan pelanggan iaitu sama ada Ayam Madu, Ayam Panggang dan Ayam Dot My selain Ikan Bakar (Mas Merah), Ikan Goreng Dot My dan Puyuh Madu.

Pelanggan utamanya ketika itu ialah pekerja kilang dari Kawasan Perusahaan Berteknologi Tinggi Kulim (KHTP).

Katanya resipi produknya banyak dicipta dan ditambah baik oleh isterinya, Norhiza Abdul Aziz, 40.

Selain itu, Mohd Zaidi berkata turut menyediakan pakej hidangan nasi ayam untuk majlis kenduri kahwin dan keraian.

KHTP perlu Hazmat
ALOR SETAR 28 Feb. - Taman Teknologi Tinggi Kulim (KHTP) kini memerlukan Pasukan Khas Tindakan Bahan Berbahaya (Hazmat) sebagai persiapan menghadapi kemungkinan bencana berpunca daripada bahan kimia.

Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak berkata, ini kerana KHTP mempunyai banyak industri berteknologi tinggi yang berkemungkinan terdedah kepada risiko tumpahan bahan kimia.

"Balai Bomba dan Penyelamat sudah ada, cuma perlu ditempatkan Hazmat untuk atasi masalah tumpahan kimia dengan lebih cepat kerana pasukan berkenaan hanya ada di Prai, agak jauh sekiranya tindakan pantas perlu diambil," kata beliau.

Beliau berkata demikian kepada pemberita selepas merasmikan Majlis Dialog dan Program Pembangunan Industri Halal Kebangsaan di Dewan Majlis Bandaraya Alor Setar (MBAS), di sini hari ini.

Turut hadir Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Industri dan Pelaburan, Sains dan Inovasi Negeri Kedah, Datuk Ir. Amiruddin Hamzah.

Selain itu, kata beliau, kerajaan negeri mengemukakan cadangan untuk pembinaan sebuah balai polis di KHTP bagi menjamin keselamatan di kawasan berkenaan yang menjadi tarikan pelabur.

Kulim Hi-Tech Park to get police station

nst.com.my 17 May, 2009

KULIM: The Kulim Hi-Tech Park here will have a new police station -- a move which is hoped will reduce the number of robberies in the industrial area. Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Economic Planning Unit) Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop said the move would help build the confidence of foreign investors who had planned to establish their operations here. "This is an open area and there have been many robberies. The situation, nevertheless, is not serious. "However, we want to make sure that the area is crime-free. We will be calling for the tender to build the police station soon." He said several shoplots in the industrial park would be upgraded to function as a temporary police station. He was speaking after a meeting with investors of the hi-tech park at the Intel Corporation plant here yesterday. Nor Mohamed said...

Wi-Net to spend RM1b on wireless broadband rollout

WI-NET Technology Sdn Bhd, a network service provider, will invest RM1 billion over the next five years to roll out its wireless broadband services.

Wi-Net Technology is the first to sign with Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) under the latter's high-speed broadband services (HSBB) project on a wholesale ethernet basis.

Wi-Net group chief executive officer Lee Wai Tuck said under the five-year agreement, the company would leverage on TM's existing wholesale ethernet service and the new HSBB network.

"We will expand our wireless broadband service to more than 2,000 locations nationwide by 2010," he told reporters after the signing ceremony with TM in Kuala Lumpur yesterday

Ethernet is a family of frame-based computer networking technologies for local area networks (LANs).

Currently, Wi-Net's broadband service is available at more than 100 locations, including Kulim, Sungai Petani, Alor Star and Langkawi.

Focusing mostly on the retail sector, he said the company targets one million customers in the next three years.

TM, which will be providing the backbone network for Wi-Net, would see the company offering Internet access up to 20 megabits per second (mbps).

Lee said the company hopes to reach out to about 4,500 locations in the next five years.

Meanwhile, TM group chief operating officer Datuk Adnan Rofiee said the total value of the contract is RM250 million.

Under the HSBB project, TM is currently in talks with more than 10 service providers on its wholesale package, he said.

TM's wholesale ethernet is regarded as a smart investment in providing cost-effective, robust, scalable and seamless connectivity solutions.

It offers high-speed secure connectivity access based on carrier class ethernet industry standards across a metropolitan area network extending to multiple locations nationwide. - Bernama

Malaysia expecting RM5b in FDI from Europe(english version)

SOME 250 investors from the three of the biggest cities in Europe are planning on investing RM5 billion in several sectors of the country in the near future.

Minister of International Trade and Industry Datuk Mustapa Mohamed said investors from Frankfurt, Milan and London have indicated their wish to invest in Malaysia during a meeting with the Malaysian trade delegation led by him last week.

Speaking to reporters following a briefing on the progress of Kulim Hitech Park (KHTP) in Kulim today, Mustapa said the investors from Frankfurt were looking at an investment of RM2.2 billion in the manufacturing and chemical sectors while investors from Milan planned to invest RM1.77 billion in the engineering sector.

Investors from London meanwhile are planning to invest RM1.1 billion in the services sector.

Mustapa also disclosed that in June several trade missions were being lined up to attract investors from China, Korea and Japan, while a trade delegation will be also visiting Australia in August.

He also hoped these trade delegations overseas will be able to bring in more investors to the country and achieve a higher investment amount than the RM62.8 billion registered last year.

On the Kulim Hitech Park meanwhile, he said its progress was commendable having become a premier industrial zone in the country and attracting 21 foreign investors as well as local investors.

He said there were plans to get more investors particularly foreign investors to invest in the park as it offered the best facilities for various sectors. - Bernama

Kediaman mampu milik

Oleh ZAMRI RAMBLI
zamri.rambli@kosmo.com.my

Warga Kedah dan Pulau Pinang kini mampu memiliki kediaman sendiri menerusi limpahan projek kediaman SPNB di dua negeri itu.
MEMILIKI rumah kediaman pada harga yang berpatutan sudah tentu menjadi idaman sesiapa sahaja. Namun, terdapatkah syarikat pemaju yang berani menawarkan dua pakej sekali gus iaitu harga rumah yang murah dengan janji 100 peratus rumah tidak akan terbengkalai?

Selaku sebuah syarikat milik penuh Menteri Kewangan, Syarikat Perumahan Negara Berhad (SPNB) sanggup memikul tanggungjawab dan berani memberi komitmen untuk kedua-dua insentif itu.

"Berbanding dengan syarikat pemaju swasta lain, kami mengambil margin keuntungan yang rendah. Jadi, kami menjual rumah 10 hingga 20 peratus lebih murah daripada rumah yang dijual pemaju swasta.

"Bahkan, satu lagi janji kami ialah rumah anda tidak akan terbengkalai. Macam mana nak terbengkalai, sedangkan salah satu tugas kami adalah memulihkan projek-projek perumahan yang dikategorikan terbengkalai."

Demikian ujar Pengurus Besar Bahagian Pemasaran dan Jualan SPNB, Azrul Hisyam Munap mengenai kelebihan menjadikan rumah yang dimajukan syarikat itu sebagai kediaman.

Jelas beliau, salah satu daripada fokus projek perumahan SPNB kini ialah di kawasan utara Semenanjung terutama di Kedah dan Pulau Pinang.

"Terdapat banyak permintaan terhadap perumahan di kedua-dua negeri itu terutama di daerah Kulim, Gurun, Sungai Petani, Pendang dan Changlun di Kedah manakala Jelutong, Seberang Prai Utara, Seberang Prai Selatan, Bayan Lepas dan Balik Pulau di Pulau Pinang," katanya.
Bagi tahun 2009, Azrul Hisyam berkata, masing-masing terdapat empat projek di Kedah dan Pulau Pinang yang kini dalam pembinaan.

"Di Kedah, kami mempunyai projek Taman Kulim Utama, Mukim Padang Cina, Kulim bagi Fasa Satu; projek Mukim Gurun, Kuala Muda juga untuk Fasa Satu; projek Mukim Ayer Putih, Pendang dan projek Mukim Sungai Laka, Kubang Pasu.

"Di Pulau Pinang pula, empat projek SPNB ialah Mutiara Vista Jelutong, Mukim 6, Jawi Seberang Prai Selatan, Seksyen 4, Seberang Prai Utara dan projek Mukim 12, Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah," katanya ketika ditemui Kosmo! di pejabatnya baru-baru ini.

Melanjutkan perbualan mengenai projek-projek perumahan di kawasan utara, katanya, setakat ini projek perumahan pangsapuri Mutiara Vista Jelutong telah dilancarkan penjualannya.

"Pada harga RM75,000 seunit, sambutan yang kami terima sangat menggalakkan kerana sehingga kini, daripada 412 unit yang dibuka penjualannya, sebanyak 252 unit telah ditempah. Semua unit premis kedai juga telah habis dijual.

"Mutiara Vista Jelutong merupakan kediaman berkeluasan 650 kaki persegi dengan tiga bilik tidur dan dua bilik air," jelas Azrul Hisyam.

Katanya, baki unit Mutiara Vista kebanyakan adalah untuk pembeli bumiputera. "Kesemua 40 peratus unit yang dikhaskan untuk pembeli bukan bumiputera telah ditempah. Jadi, kami amat mengharapkan warga bumiputera yang berkelayakan merebut peluang memiliki kediaman di kawasan strategik itu," tambahnya.

Antara syarat kelayakan pembeli di Mutiara Vista Jelutong termasuklah warga negara Malaysia, bermastautin di Pulau Pinang, pendapatan tidak melebihi RM3,500 sebulan, belum memiliki rumah selain pembeli perlu mendapat kelulusan daripada Setiausaha Kerajaan Negeri.

Bagi projek di Kulim pula, jelas Azrul Hisyam, projek kediaman seluas 69.2 hektar itu merangkumi beberapa pembinaan perumahan bercampur.

"Rumah teres satu tingkat (20x70 kaki persegi) dijual pada harga RM125,000, rumah teres dua tingkat (22x70) RM195,000, rumah berkembar satu tingkat (35x80) RM179,000 dan rumah banglo (45x80) pada harga RM250,000," Azrul Hisyam.

Dengan pembangunan Kulim Hi-Tech sebagai sebuah kawasan perindustrian selain kawasan sekitar termasuk Butterworth yang jaraknya cuma 25 kilometer dari kawasan perumahan itu, Taman Kulim Utama bakal meraih perhatian pembeli.

Kata Azrul Hisyam, selain insentif jualan seperti yuran guaman percuma (untuk surat perjanjian jual beli) dan pakej fleksibel (90 hari faedah percuma untuk pinjaman dan pengeluaran EPF), harga yang disebutkan juga belum dipotong lima peratus diskaun untuk pembeli bumiputera.

Jelas beliau lagi, Taman Kulim Utama akan dilancarkan jualannya pada Sabtu ini manakala beberapa projek lain akan dilancarkan selewat-lewatnya menjelang Jun 2009.

Utara: Sidang DUN Kedah: TPKHT berdepan saingan perlu diberi perhatian
Laporan Siti Fatimah Mohamed Anwar
ctfa@bharian.com.my
Taman industri serantau boleh gugat prestasi jika leka
ALOR SETAR: Kerajaan Pas Kedah perlu memberi tumpuan terhadap persaingan serantau taman perindustrian di Asia, yang dikenal pasti mampu memberi kesan terhadap prestasi Taman Perindustrian Kulim Hi-Tech (TPKHT) sebagai projek perindustrian bertaraf global.

Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid (BN-Pedu) berkata sejak 18 tahun lalu TPKHT muncul sebagai penanda aras terhadap pusat perkembangan perindustrian global yang mampu memancing kemasukan pelabur asing, termasuk Eropah, Jepun dan Korea.

Beliau berkata, namun lebih sedekad lalu, kemunculan taman perindustrian serantau termasuk di Hanoi (Vietnam), Shenzhen (China) dan Bangalore di India sedikit sebanyak menggugat prestasi TPKHT.

"Perkara ini perlu diambil perhatian oleh kerajaan negeri. Kita tidak boleh lagi terus leka dengan pencapaian dicipta sebaliknya bersedia menghadapi persaingan dengan taman perindustrian lain di Asia.

"Jika pengurusan TPKHT tidak ambil serius dengan kewujudan pesaing ini maka dalam tempoh lima tahun akan datang taman perindustrian yang menjadi kebanggaan seluruh rakyat Kedah akan ketinggalan dan terus kekal di takuk lama," katanya ketika membahaskan Rang Undang-undang Pihak Berkuasa Tempatan TPKHT di sini, semalam.
Mahdzir berkata, peranan pihak berkuasa tempatan (PBT) dan pengurusan serta pentadbiran TPKHT perlu diperkasa bagi menjamin keseimbangan prestasi selain pertumbuhan sosio ekonomi masyarakat setempat.

"Pengurusan dan pentadbiran TPKHTP perlu berlangsung dalam suasana profesional selaras dengan keadaan ekonomi yang tenat ketika ini. Saya fikir, jika kita tidak bersedia dan tidak membuat persiapan terhadap persaingan taman industri yang wujud di rantau Asia, tidak mustahil pelabur asing sedia ada akan beralih arah.

"Difahamkan, lebih 18,000 orang berkerja di TPKHTP. Justeru, dengan jumlah sumber tenaga kerja besar itu kita berharap TPKHTP akan kekal relevan menjadi pusat perindustrian terkemuka dunia dengan mengekalkan sifat berdaya saing," katanya.

Sementara itu, Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Industri, Pelaburan, Pertanian dan Industri Asas Tani negeri, Datuk Amiruddin Hamzah, berkata sehingga kini jumlah pelaburan yang dibawa masuk ke negeri ini berjumlah RM2.9 bilion.

"Jumlah itu diperoleh melalui Kementerian Perdagangan Antarabangsa dan Industri, Lembaga Kemajuan Perindustrian Malaysia (Mida) dan ia tidak termasuk kira-kira RM36 bilion yang disumbang menerusi pelaburan Merapoh Resources Corporation Sdn Bhd di Sungai Limau Hydrocarbon Hub (SULIHH) menjelang akhir tahun ini," katanya melalui jawapan bertulis yang dikemukakan Datuk Dr Ku Abd Rahman Ku Ismail (BN-Guar Cempedak).

Swiftlet Rearing Made As Agriculture Industry - Mukhriz



KULIM, Aug 15 (Bernama) -- Rearing of swiftlets should be made one of the industries in the country's agriculture sector because of its lucrative income, Deputy International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Mukriz Mahathir said on Saturday.

He said the technology in the rearing of swiftlets had changed that the bird could be bred using the hatchery process and then reared for its nests.

Speaking to reporters after opening an association for agriculture and agro-based industry entrepreneurs and a swiftlet rearing project here, he said such a project was being carried out by the association at Kampung Sungai Tengas, near here.

Some 8,000 birds were being reared in the project and when fully operational was expected to yield an income of RM120,000 a month, he added.
