Senai Airport City Sdn Bhd (SAC), a member of MMC Group, had participated in two events in Singapore and Johor Bahru, to promote Johor as a location of choice for investments.

The seminar event in Singapore, “Investment Opportunities in Johor”, was graced by YB Mr Jimmy Puah Wee Tse, Johor State Executive Chairman of International Investment and Utility. Organised by Johor State Investment Centre (JSIC) in collaboration with Singapore Manufacturing Federation (SMF), the seminar was filled with information sharing by Johor Economic Planning Unit, Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) Singapore, Johor Human Resource Unit and Telekom Malaysia. The session was then followed by panel discussion to exchange ideas related to economic growth, current and future planning of Johor, investment facilitation and human resource development particularly in the state of Johor.

On the other hand, the event “Industrial Park Forum”, held in Johor Bahru was organised by MIDA in collaboration with Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM). Officiated by YB Dr. Ong Kian Ming, Deputy Minister in the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) and accompanied by YB Mr. Jimmy Puah Wee Tse, Johor State Executive Chairman of International Investment and Utility; the event provided a strategic avenue for industrial park developers, prospective local and foreign manufacturers and investors, as well as local authorities to establish business linkages in strengthening the industrial ecosystem.

Before visiting SAC’s booth at the exhibition hall, YB Dr. Ong Kian Ming had reiterated in his speech that the developers need to ensure that our industrial areas are equipped with infrastructure and facilities that meet the standards and requirements of investors to continue to attract foreign direct investments (FDIs) and for preparation towards Industry 4.0.

Two of SAC’s renowned investors, Hershey Malaysia and I-Park Development had also delivered testimonial presentations at the event. In their presentations, the investors shared their experience with SAC as the master developer that facilitated the setting up of their investments at SAC.

Participation in both events have showcased SAC as a reputable developer in Johor that provides essential infrastructure and facilities for high-value added industries. With the testimonials from our current investors, it is hoped that SAC will be able to attract more FDIs into Johor specifically and Malaysia generally.
