KUALA LUMPUR: The construction industry grew at the rate of 14.3% until the middle of this year with projects worth RM69bil carried out until September, Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof said.

He said 39% of the projects valued at RM27bil were non-residential projects, residential projects (33%/RM23bil), infrastructure projects (22%/RM15bil), and social services (6%/RM4bil).

Fadillah said the construction sector grew 10.9% last year with projects valued at RM124 bil, of which 30% or RM38bil were residential projects.

The rest of the projects comprised non-residential projects accounting for 41% valued at RM51bil, infrastructure projects (21%/ RM26bil) and social services (8%/RM9bil), he said at the signing of a memorandum of cooperation (MoC) on governance, integrity and prevention of corruption with construction industry players here yesterday.
