Melaka Gateway project is still ours, says KAJD

The project consisted of three man-made island and a natural island that would include the Melaka international cruise terminal to be developed in partnership with US-based Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd

MELAKA: The Melaka Gateway project on Melaka Island is still developed by KAJ Development Sdn Bhd (KAJD), the master developer of the RM43 billion project, and there is no change in ownership, said the company in a statement today.

KAJD said the company was still operating as usual and had not sold off the project or any equity in it as widely speculated.

"Rumours are rife and this is fake news that has tarnished KAJD's reputation," said the statement.

KAJD said it would not be responsible over the speculation and had the right to take legal action against those disseminating such false accusations.

KAJ signed a memorandum of agreement with Powerchina on Sept 1, 2016 to privately develop the 546.4 hectare mixed development on the Straits of Malacca, comprising three man-made islands and one natural island.

Melaka Gateway is expected to be completed in 2025 and attract some 2.5 million visitors, annually, with some 40,000 to 45,000 job opportunities created.

The islands would feature, among others, an international cruise passenger terminal, a commercial city, liquid bulk terminal and maritime industrial park. - Bernama
