What a phony website. Some idiot created it. A website that has nothing about the Disneyland. Just whole bunch of links!
Yeah! Some idiot who will make quick buck if the website is really get sold. Or some idiot who will get sue for infringement of registered brand or trademark. :nuts:

Either way it is quite interesting to note that the website is created right after the announcement of SJER.

SJER To Create 817,500 New Jobs


JOHOR BAHARU, 4 Nov (Bernama) -- The South Johor Economic Region is expected to create around 817,500 new jobs during its development until 2025, said the Johor Economic Planning Unit (EPU).

With the new job opportunities, employment in the region would increase to 1.43 million as against one million jobs available at present, the Johor EPU said in a report.

The SJER is a massive multi-billion ringgit development covering an area of 2,200 square km here. The project was launched by the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Iskandar on Saturday.

Based on projections by the SJER development master plan, RM47 billion in investments are needed to generate economic growth and activities over a five-year period between 2006-2010 and another RM335 billion over 15 years (2011-2025).

The Johor EPU said with the SJER, the area is expected to register eight percent growth in gross domestic product (GDP) per annum while growth without the project will be only at six percent.

Over a 20-year period, the two percent difference represents a GDP value of US$93.3 billion with the SJER and US$64.1 billion without the SJER.

It also said that with the SJER, productivity would increase to four percent compared with three percent without it while unemployment in Johor will be three percent as against 6.2 percent without it.

Demolish Causeway - Sultan Iskandar


JOHOR BAHARU, Nov 4 (Bernama) -- The Sultan of Johor, Sultan Iskandar, on Saturday called for demolition of the Johor Causeway, the southern gateway into Malaysia, to provide the passage for ships to pass through the Tebrau Straits which separates Malaysia and Singapore.

He said the causeway, built by the British colonialists, was blocking ships from passing through the Tebrau Straits.

This had subjected Johor to constant condemnation, he said.

"The causeway has to be demolished, only then Johor will develop," he said when launching the multi-billion ringgit South Johor Economic Region (SJER) project in Danga Bay here today. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was present.

Built in 1920, the causeway, spanning 1,050m in length from Johor Baharu to Singapore and 18.18m in width, accommodates two railway lines and a 7.87m-wide road. A water pipeline from Johor to Singapore and a telecommunication cable also pass through the causeway.

On the SJER project, a joint initiative of the federal and state governments, the Sultan said he was confident the project would succeed with the cooperation of all parties.

He hoped it would open up opportunities for Johoreans and the benefits reaped by people from all strata of society in the state.

He also reminded Johoreans to learn a lesson from the experiences of the forefathers who were easily deceived by the British.

"We better not be naive to be not cheated again," he said.

The Ruler thanked the federal government, particularly Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, for allocating a substantial amount for Johor's economic development.

The Sultan later placed an iconic time capsule at the project site which would be kept until 2025.

In conjunction with the launch, the massive SJER project, developed by Khazanah Nasional, the federal government's investment arm, was given a new name -- Iskandar Development Region.

The project entails RM47 billion investment in the first five years from 2006 to 2010 and RM335 billion in the next 15 years between 2011 and 2025.

Eh, Khazanah has gazillions of cash ok. We can afford it. Foreign investors can contribute too. If Dubai can build it, so can we. Dubai don't need the world's tallest tower and world's biggest mall, but they built it anyway! Let's show the world what Malaysia is capable of.

let we focus on our plaza rakyat tower first,then we talk about new supertall....ok :)
Absolutely correct. Rather use the money and build megascrapers to show the world we are capable of, why dont we use that to help other states like Kedah, Perlis and Sabah to develop their states so that all of the anak Malaysia can live in prosperity, no more poverty and whatsoever...I am trying to say that use the investment at the proper sector that everyone is benefited, rather than using the money to show off that Malaysia only "boleh" in building huge and supertall buildings, but do not have the ability to solve the poverty, or corruption ....

No offense. Cheers:D

That's what they call ego, world longest, world fastest, world tallest, world biggest...............Let's not waste money on something that not everyone can enjoy it, but help the standard living of Malaysian, sound like a great idea?

why :? :?
I hv a feeling that dubai is spending with obsession and dreaming. They r trying to be hubs of many things, and building it by hundreds of billion dollars. They hv the money, but is it a worth gamble or really a good thing for them?

These photos generated are actually done by an Australian consultant back in the early 90s on how JB would look like in the next 10-20 years. That is not Nusajaya but Johor Bahru. Sadly, in the millenium, JB has lost its lustre and there is hardly any development around town. Most of the constructions are state-financed projects, and almost nothing from the private sector. To prove my point, there are at least several huge abandoned projects, including a couple of tall office skyscrapers sitting empty in the city proper alone. Therefore, before being too ambitious as to build another Putrajaya-like city like Nusajaya, the government should first try to develop JB properly before venturing further.

:sleepy: Really. instead of building these new cities filled with mega project. why not help fight poverty or help other malay states that are not a fortunate as the other? one example is dubai. besides building these megaprojects. cant they put their money to better use then waste it on highrise building and artificial islands. sure their nice. but cant they do something better with the oil in their hands.:eek:hno: anyway that website is one of those cheapo web links that just want to get ur attention. because of the catchy name.:lol:
