Top 10 Reasons to Invest in Iskandar
Much has changed for Iskandar Malaysia over the last few years. This month, we kick off 2011 with a fresh look at the Top 10 Reasons to Invest in this economic region.
Posted Date: Jan 11, 2011
By: iProperty.com

Much has changed for Iskandar Malaysia over the last few years. This month, we kick off 2011 with a fresh look at the Top 10 Reasons to Invest in this economic region.

In its first five years, Iskandar Malaysia has overcome economic slumps, global recessions and the pullout of some major partners, and now looks set to go from strength to strength. In fact, the Iskandar Regional Development Authority chief executive officer Ismail Ibrahim announced just before Christmas 2010 that the total value of investments recorded by Iskandar Malaysia from its start in 2006 until September 2010 is RM64.38 billion – exceeding the RM47 billion target set for this year. The start of an exciting new year seems an opportune time to re-examine the top 10 reasons to invest in this economic corridor.

1. Unwavering Government Support

The Malaysian Government has, since Iskandar Malaysia's inception, indicated its unwavering support for the creation of a dynamic and conducive business environment in Iskandar, including major allocations in its two stimulus packages. The Government has approved an additional allocation of RM700 million for infrastructure and other projects within Iskandar for the next two years. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak himself has played a part in facilitating discussions with major parties like the Singapore Government, as well as witnessing significant signing ceremonies with major investors.

2. Vibrant Business Environment

The business environment in Iskandar has been planned according to dynamic, knowledge-based clusters including information technology, biotechnology, tourism, education, healthcare, Islamic finance, manufacturing, and electrical and electronic industry. Already a highly competitive manufacturing and export base, Johor has a strong, growing services sector. Of the overall investment recorded, RM25.65 billion was in the service sector, RM12.81 billion in the tourism sector, RM19.64 billion in properties and RM6.28 billion in the government sector.

3. Skilled Workforce

Investors in Iskandar Malaysia get access to a large, educated workforce proficient in English, Bahasa Malaysia and other international languages, at competitive rates. The Government's five-year development plans reflect emphasis on both education and industrial training. Education is a business cluster in Iskandar Malaysia itself, reflecting continued support of human resource development in the economic corridor.

4. Investment in Infrastructure

Iskandar Malaysia contains world-class land, sea and air cargo facilities that allow good supply and distribution of raw materials, including an ultra-modern airport in Senai and world-class ports in Tanjung Pelepas and Pasir Gudang. It already enjoys major road connections and railway links with the major distribution hub of Singapore, all the way across Malaysia and up to Thailand. For 2011, the Federal Government has allocated RM339 million for highways, houses, public transportation services and development planning research in southern Johor – long-term investments to ensure adequate and supportive infrastructure.

5. Singaporean Co-operation

Singaporean companies are buying into the idea of Iskandar Malaysia, thanks to their Government's support. The two countries have set up a Joint Ministerial Committee to oversee economic co-operation in the corridor, discussing measures from smartcards to ease the daily commuting of over 150,000 workers, a Rapid Transit System (RTS) Link between Singapore and Iskandar to reduce immigration to only one checkpoint, and a new framework for cross-border sharing of information on lost and stolen passports.

6. More Major Investors Continually Coming

Joining the already illustrious line-up of foreign investors in Iskandar Malaysia are, most recently, the Mace Group (MACE) of the United Kingdom, a global consultancy and construction giant, and Biocon Ltd, a billion-dollar biotechnology company from India. Biocon is investing RM500mil in the first phase of its new biomanufacturing and research and development (R&D) facility in Iskandar Malaysia – the largest investment in Malaysian biotechnology thus far. Meanwhile, WCT Bhd and the Mubadala Group are eyeing a second project in Iskandar Malaysia in 2011, a RM688 million mixed commercial project.

7. Excellent, Affordable Environment to Live and Work

Iskandar Malaysia offers a seamless convergence of business, living, entertainment and environment – at far less expensive rates than, say, Singapore and Hong Kong. Investors can choose from a good, affordable mixture of greenfield (virgin land) and brownfield (existing industrial land) sites and high-tech industrial parks, telecommunications and office facilities. Meanwhile, the economic corridor also has a wide variety of offerings for education, relaxation and recreation, from schools and universities for children to international tourist destinations, theme parks, sports facilities, shopping, healthcare and wellness.

8. Strategic Location

Iskandar Malaysia is strategically positioned along one of the world's busiest shipping routes. Being at the heart of the Asian region and at the cross-road of centuries-old East-West trade routes creates lucrative opportunities to tap into growing economies such as Indonesia, China and India. Travel (for business or leisure) and distribution are smooth, swift, reliable and safe – qualities not to be taken for granted in these times.

9. Liberal Equity Policy

The Malaysian Government's welcoming of foreign direct investment (FDI) extends to increasingly liberal equity policies. Generally, foreign investors in Malaysia's manufacturing sector can hold 100 percent equity in projects which export at least 80 percent of their production. However, effective from 17 June 2003, 100 percent foreign equity holding is allowed for all investments in new projects, as well as investments in expansion/diversification projects by existing companies irrespective of their level of exports. Under Datuk Seri Najib's premiership, foreigners are now allowed to own up to 70 percent equity in all financial institutions here except commercial banks, where foreign equity is capped at 30 percent. The government has also removed the 30 percent bumiputra equity condition in 27 services sub-sectors.

10. Attracting Talent with Liberal Hiring Policies


Foreign companies in the manufacturing sector have traditionally been allowed to employ expatriates where certain skills are not available in Malaysia. A company with a foreign paid-up capital of US$2 million and above will be allowed up to 10 expatriate posts, including five key posts. The Private Higher Educational Institutions Act 1996 [Act 555] also requires any person who wants to teach in any PHEIs – local or foreign – to obtain a permit to teach beforehand. However, the Prime Minister in December 2010 also announced the introduction of the "resident pass", a document offered to highly qualified expatriates which will accord, not only to holders but also their spouses, long-term rights to live and work here without being tied to an employer. Malaysian diaspora and their offsprings, who no longer hold Malaysian citizenship, also qualify for the pass.

Masteel, KUB to jointly run inter-city rail transit system in Iskandar Malaysia

By Bernama
Friday, 21 January 2011 14:23

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Steel Works (KL) Bhd (Masteel) and KUB Malaysia Bhd signed a joint-venture (JV) agreement to jointly build and operate 100km inter-city rail transit system costing RM1.23 billion at Iskandar Malaysia in Johor.

The system will also be linked to the Mass Rapid Transit line in Singapore.

Masteel and KUB will hold 60% and 40% stakes respectively in theJV company Metropolitan Commuter Network Sdn Bhd.

The proposed inter-city rail transit will have up to 25 commuter stations in major towns in the Iskandar Malaysia economic corridor in the initial stage.

"We will use the existing Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) rail, and will add four new stations in the growth areas along KTM's rail path," said Masteel managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tai Hean Leng. — Bernama

Top British varsity to open next year

KUALA LUMPUR: The University of Southampton (UoS) will establish its first overseas campus in Malaysia, boosting the nation’s status as a regional education hub.

Scheduled to open in Sept 2012, the university will establish its School of Engineering Services at [email protected], Johor.

Constantly ranked in the world’s top 100 universities by the Times Higher Education World Uni- versity Rankings and the QS World University Ran*kings, the university’s Malaysian campus will be called the University of Southampton Malaysia Campus (USMC).

Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin said that the university’s presence, which is renowned for its engineering courses, was a recognition of Malaysia’s higher education system.

“With the USMC, Malaysia is fast realising its ambitions to be a regional education hub,” he said, at a press conference after witnessing the signing ceremony between the university and Iskan*dar Investment Bhd yesterday.

“Its presence will allow us to tap the potential of students in the region as those in China, India, Indonesia and the Middle East will be able to get a British degree by studying in Malaysia.”

The USMC will initially offer undergraduate programmes in electrical, mechanical and aerospace engineering via a 2+2 format – students would spend their first two years in Malaysia before completing their studies in Britain.

Students will be taught by UoS professors in Malaysia.

Targeting an initial batch of 60 students, the USMC’s 0.563-ha campus will be established as part of Educity’s multi-university enterprise complex, which is shared among the tenants.

The complex will be able to accommodate approximately 5,000 students by 2020.

Other renowned universities at the Educity include the Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia and the Netherlands Maritime Institute of Technology.

Describing the event as “historic”, UoS vice-chancellor Prof Don Nutbeam said that the university had the option of expanding and this could lead to setting up new schools or having postgraduate programmes.

University of Southampton setting up campus in Iskandar
25 January 2011 , By Business Times Singapore

Iskandar Malaysia received a further boost yesterday as Iskandar Education Enterprise signed an agreement with the UK's University of Southampton to establish a campus in the region.

The University of Southampton Malaysia Campus (USMC) will be located in EduCity within Iskandar Malaysia ([email protected]) and is scheduled to open in 2012 with an intake of 60 students.

The 0.6 hectare USMC will be established as part of the 2.8 ha Multi-Varsity Enterprise Complex in [email protected]

The complex will also house the Netherlands Maritime Institute of Technology campus and a Students Centre shared among the tenants.

The complex will be able to accommodate approximately 5,000 students by 2020.

USMC in [email protected] will offer undergraduate and postgraduate courses in electrical, mechanical and aerospace engineering.

The university will initially offer undergraduate courses in engineering taught by Southampton professors in Malaysia for the first two years of the programme.

Students will then spend the last two years at the University of Southampton campus in the United Kingdom.

This marks another milestone in Iskandar Investment Group's journey towards establishing [email protected] as a leading education hub in Asia.

It is also the first international venture for the University of Southampton, which was ranked among the top 100 universities worldwide in 2010, according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings and the QS World University League Rankings.

'The University of Southampton Malaysia Campus in [email protected] will boost the region's education offerings and enhance the nation's capacity building towards becoming a high-income economy.

'It will also address Malaysia's shortage of engineers and our ability to meet the demand for 200,000 engineers by 2020,' explained Syed Mohamed Syed Ibrahim, president and chief executive officer of Iskandar Investment Group and chairman of the

Professor Don Nutbeam, vice-chancellor of the University of Southampton, said: 'The university is excited to be associated with the innovative EduCity development that brings together a host of world-leading educational institutions in a unique research and learning environment.

This is Iskandar Investment Group's fifth partnership with an internationally-recognised educational institution.

Brunei Darussalam Seeks To Explore Investment Scope In Malaysia – Muhyiddin
26 January 2011 , By Bernama

Brunei Darussalam has expressed interest to step up bilateral trade with the focus on expanding and exploring the scope of investment in Malaysia, Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said here Tuesday.

He said that in his discussions with Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, it was learnt that Brunei Darussalam had identified Iskandar Malaysia in Johor, Sabah and Sarawak as the three territories with great potential for investment.

The sultan had granted an audience to Muhyiddin, who is on a two-day official visit to Brunei Darussalam during which he is also scheduled to attend the 46th Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organisation (Seameo) Council Conference (Seamec) and 6th Asean Education Ministers Meeting (ASED).

"No decision has been made on the specific investment areas but among them are food and meat production, cattle farming, hotel and real estate," Muhyiddin told reporters after a visit to Sekolah Vokasional Nakhoda Ragam.

He said the investment would be undertaken by the Brunei Investment Agency (BIA), an organisation under the finance ministry of that country.

Muhyiddin, who is also education minister, said both countries would also establish cooperation in education, particularly in the aspect of international schools, vocational education and ICT.

He said that in the area of international schools, one aspect to be looked into would be the need for exchange of students because a feature of the development of high-performance schools in Malaysia was an international network among schools abroad.

On vocational education, he said, the focus would be on enhancing the quality of such education in the two countries.

ICT development involved software content and teacher training, he added.

Muhyiddin said Malaysia was interested in learning from Brunei Darussalam's experience in raising English Language fluency among school children.

"They also use English Language experts from the United Kingdom," he said, adding that Malaysia wanted to look into this aspect following the government's new policy to recruit English Language experts from abroad to teach the language in Malaysia.

Iskandar rail job to draw more bids
By ZAZALI MUSA
[email protected]


JOHOR BARU: More private and public-listed companies (PLCs) could possibly submit their proposals to the Transport Ministry this year for the development of inter-city rail transit network in Iskandar Malaysia, said a senior official with the State Economic Planning Unit (Upen).

This is following an announcement by Malaysia Steel Works (KL) Bhd (Masteel) and KUB Malaysia Bhd recently that they had proposed to develop and operate the RM1.23bil project on a joint-venture basis.

Masteel and KUB told a media briefing in Kuala Lumpur that the project, consisting up to 25 commuter stations, was expected to be completed not later than end of 2013.

“We at Upen were quite surprised when reading the news that the two companies have agreed to form a joint-venture company to bid for the project,'' the official, who declined to be named, told StarBiz.

When asked whether Upen had received any proposal other than from the two companies, he said the project was being handled by the Federal Government.

He said other bidders likely to submit their proposals include PLCs and non-PLCs involved in infrastructure, engineering and construction activities.

Under the 10th Malaysia Plan, a RM2.8bil allocation has been made for the Urban Public Transport National Key Result Area to increase ridership in Greater Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor Baru in the first two years of the plan.

Meanwhile, property developers in Johor Baru have welcomed the project, which they described as long overdue.

Country View Bhd marketing manager Andrew Tan said the network would improve connectivity within the economic corridor and help boost property demand.

“Better connectivity will improve the economy in general and will create spillover not only for the property sector but also other segments including retail, education, health and tourism,'' he said.

Tan said Nusajaya would benefit the most as a big portion of its land area was still in green field category.

Nusajaya is one of five flagship development zones in the 2,217 sq km Iskandar Malaysia, the country's first economic corridor in the southern-most part of Johor.

He said apart from being the state's new administrative centre with the Kota Iskandar Complex, there were several projects in Nusajaya by the private sector which would be completed in two years.

These include Asia's first Legoland Theme Park, Indoor Theme Park @ Puteri Harbour, Newcastle University of Medicine Malaysia, Netherlands Maritime Institute of Technology, Marlborough College Malaysia and Pinewood Iskandar Malaysia Studio.

“While the rail system is still in its planning stage, we can expect many developers, including those from outside Johor, to come to Iskandar Malaysia,'' said Tan.

Country View is developing the 121.40ha Nusa Sentral in Nusajaya which will keep the company busy for eight years.

KSL Holdings Bhd executive director Ku Hwa Seng said while the rail system would be good for Iskandar Malaysia in the long term, proper planning was needed to ensure that it would work.

He said one way of doing that was to integrate the system with the public bus and feeder bus services in the area.

Ku said the locations of the bus stops must be within walking distance to the commuter stations.

“The system will only be successful if it interconnects with Singapore's Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) due to the high movement of human traffic between Johor Baru and Singapore every day,'' he said.

Ku said apart from reducing traffic congestion at the Causeway, the link with Singapore's MRT would also help bring in more Singaporeans to Johor Baru, hence boosting the local economy.

SP Setia Bhd deputy president and chief operating officer Datuk Voon Tin Yow did not foresee major problems in implementing the rail project in Iskandar Malaysia.

He said unlike the Klang Valley which had many established housing areas and mature townships, planning would be easier in the economic corridor where the system could be planned to cut through housing areas as little as possible.

“While improving public transport system and connectivity in Iskandar Malaysia is lauded, the region must continue to attract new investments to ensure its sustainability,'' said Voon.

GAIM seeks to invest more in Iskandar
By THE STAR

The Macau firm has just acquired two condo blocks there for RM200mil

JOHOR BARU: Global Asia Investment (Macau) Ltd (GAIM) is looking to invest in more property projects in Iskandar Malaysia following its initial foray into Johor Baru market.

Chief executive officer Charlie Taka said the prospects in Iskandar Malaysia were good and the company wanted to benefit from long-term growth of Malaysia’s first economic growth corridor.

Headquartered in Macau, GAIM is an asset-building consulting company with 10,000 members. It assists its clients, who are mostly Japanese, in investing overseas.

“Iskandar’s close proximity to Singapore and its strategic location in the region is the major selling point to attract investors from all over the world,” Taka told StarBiz at the ground-breaking ceremony of Molek Pine Tower 3 project here recently.


Berinda Group chief executive officer and Tanjung Bintang group managing director Frank Goon Swee Kheong (right) briefing Johor Baru mayor Jaafar Awang (centre) and Charlie Taka on the Molek Pine 3 Tower.

He said like Chinas’ Shenzhen, which benefitted from the economic spillover of Hong Kong and Macau, Iskandar would benefit from Singapore’s position as an international trade and financial centre.

He expects Iskandar to be fully developed in 10 years although Iskandar Regional Development Authority, under its Comprehensive Development Plan, has set a target for the economic corridor to become an international metropolis in 2025.

Meanwhile, GAIM has purchased the two condominium blocks at Molek Pine Tower 3 from Tanjung Bintang Sdn Bhd for RM200mil. The blocks would be used for its “Malaysia My Second Home” programme for its Japanese clients.

The project comprises a 28-storey tower block with 212 units and a six-storey block with 36 units on a 2.42ha site in Taman Molek.

The units will have built-up areas of 1,300 to 2,300 sq ft. The condo, with selling price from RM500,000, is expected to be completed in two years.

It is being developed by Tanjung Bintang, a unit of the Berinda Group, which in turn is a property development arm of the Kuok Group. Taman Molek was launched in 1990 and now has about 5,000 residential and commercial units.

“With European and the US economies still have a long way to recover and Japan’s economy not in a good shape either, we are focusing on China and Asean countries for investments,” said Taka.

He said GAIM would look at several options when investing in Iskandar including joint ventures with local partners, buying properties en bloc and acquiring stakes in companies.

Taka said apart from Iskandar, the company also had property investments in Kuala Lumpur and Penang.

GAIM, which has a revolving fund of RM500mil, has similar investments in Canada, China, Cambodia, Europe, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Thailand, the United States and the Philippines.
