PULAU INDAH (Beautiful
- Some 20 years ago Pulau Indah, previously known as Pulau Lumut,
located just off the coast of Selangor, was a swampy mangrove
area. But now the place is slowly transforming into a
multi-billion ringgit integrated industrial zone and a premier
Central Spectrum (M) Sdn Bhd, a company under Kumpulan Darul
Ehsan Berhad (KDEB) is the main developer of the RM4 billion
fully-integrated Pulau Indah Industrial Park (PIIP) slated for
completion by 2014. When fully completed, the 2342.6-hectare
park will be a self-contained island made up of light, general
and specific industry areas, warehouses, a town centre and
PIIP's first phase covering 352 hectares was put on the
market in 1995 while the second phase was unveiled in 1997.
Central Spectrum (M) Sdn Bhd's general manager Ir. Roslan Ahmad
said the development of the industrial park remained an
important component under the island's development masterplan to
turn Pulau Indah into an integrated 'harbour city' that would
attract export-based manufacturers to set up their plants here.
He believes that an investment within the 'harbour city' is
an ideal business proposition due to the strategic location and
modern infrastructure. It also promises cost savings and high
DEVELOPMENT OF INDUSTRIAL PARK
"The project is based on a simple concept," said Roslan.
"It's a development where the environment will be taken care of,
where people can do business at ease, where families will enjoy
coming home, where potential customers are virtually at your
doorstep and life can be as simple as the concept behind it."
Roslan noted that the integrated industrial park encompasses
industrial development, commercial and institutional centres as
well as residential development. On industrial development, he
said PIIP encouraged the establishment of port-related
industries backed up by medium- and small-scale industries. The
latest product, the Selangor Halal Hub is part of the industrial
development programme. All factory units, which consist of 1
1/2-storey terrace factories, 1 1/2-storey semi-detached
factories and single-storey terrace factories, enjoy spacious
land area with close proximity to Westport, the biggest super
port in the region.
As for the commercial and institutional centres, Indah Point
consists of 102 units of four-storey shop-offices and a tower
block to house the financial and banking institutions,
international freight forwarders, medical and health services,
restaurants, leisure and entertainment outlets and so on.
Designed with world-class infrastructure, Indah Point is
certainly a much sought after business hub.
As for residential development, he said more than 15,000
units had been planned ranging from low-cost housing to meet the
demand of employees in Pulau Indah, to high-cost homes.
Residential Development in Pulau Indah offer buyers a chance to
own an island home, and the residents can capitalise on the
water-front shores that offer water sports activities such as
jet- skiing and fishing.
The PIIP is also linked to all major highways as well as to
the rest of the world through various means. Roslan said with
sophisticated transport and communication infrastructure, PIIP
could meet the demands of the local and international market. An
effective town planning programme will see the development of
business parks, research and technology parks, shopping
complexes and shopping villages. All these will be further
complemented with the presence of government departments, a
private hospital, private college, floating mosque, transport
terminal and a hypermarket.
Roslan asserted that the designs would meet the demands of the
21st century business setting and the town centre fully equipped
with networking facilities and related amenities. "We will
preserve 44 hectares of mangrove swamp in the island's
commercial centre into a wetland, similar to the Sungai Buloh
Woodlands Sanctuary in Singapore," he said. "Purchasers can be
assured that the development of PIIP adheres to the stringent
requirements of the Department of Environment (DOE) and set to
take care of tomorrow's environmental needs. "Enjoy hassle-free
procedures for your investment in our properties. We will ensure
that your investment here begins on a bright note."
PIIP as the "The Global Vision of the Future" is set to create
business opportunities for investors and is on track to make
Malaysia's Vision 2020 a reality. Those keen to grab a golden

PORT KLANG: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah
Ahmad Badawi wants the port authorities to enhance efforts in
attracting logistics agents to utilise Malaysian ports. He said
the logistics and shipping sectors were very competitive,
especially in Asean. As such, the port authorities should strive
to provide excellent services to exporters, importers and
shipping companies, Abdullah said in his speech, which was read
out by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, at the
opening of the Port Klang Free Zone at Pulau Indah, near here,
Malaysian ports should also be prepared to fulfil
customerís demand, apart from providing additional attractions,
Abdullah said, citing the setting up of the Port Klang Free Zone
as a positive move. Abdullah said the Government wanted the Port
Klang Free Zone to be the catalyst for trade, distribution and
light industrial activities. He is confident that the Port Klang
Free Zone will bring in positive changes based on its strategic
location and the facilities offered. If the operations and
marketing of the Port Klang Free Zone run smoothly, I am
positive that Port Klang can become the ideal port in Asia, he
He is happy with the co-operation between Port
Klang Free Zone and Jebel Ali Free Zone International (JFZI) in
the United Arab Emirates, which has an excellent record in the
development and management of free trade zones worldwide.
Abdullah is also confident that the co-operation will achieve
the objective of making the Port Klang Free Zone the preferred
trade and distribution centre in the region.
The Port Klang Free Zone is located on a 400ha
land in Pulau Indah. Developed and owned by the Port Klang
Authority (PKA), it comprises two free zones, namely the
Commercial Free Zone and Industrial Free Zone. It is modelled
after the Jebel Ali Free Zone, the leading distribution hub in
West Asia and reputedly the most successful in the world.
PKA has appointed Jebel Ali to conceptualise the
development, marketing and management of the Port Klang Free
Zone. Seven companies, four Malaysian and three from the UAE,
have so far indicated their intention to set up their operations
in the Port Klang Free Zone.- Bernama
