Tour of Malaysia’s Iskandar Development Region

The Club is organising a tour of Malaysia’s foremost emerging economic zone, Iskandar Malaysia, on Saturday 4 December. Just across the Second Link from Singapore in Johor, the development area will have five flagship zones where living, entertainment, environment and business seamlessly converge. A major undertaking by the Malaysian government, it marks yet another aspect of Malaysia’s drive for sustained economic growth.

The catalyst of change in this economic zone is Iskandar Investment Berhad (IIB), which was set up to drive the projects that will be set up in the zone, through strategic investments and partnerships, contribution of land or granting of concessions and development rights.

With help from the CEO of Iskandar Investments’ Singapore office, Dato N. Parameswaran, IIB has organised a very interesting one-day programme for the Club, including a dialogue with Iskandar Investments new President and CEO Datuk Syed Mohamed Ibrahim.
