KUALA LUMPUR: Permodalan Negeri Selangor Bhd (PNSB), IJM Corp Bhd and Lim Seong Hai Capital Bhd (LSH) have announced a strategic collaboration targeted at transforming the road transportation infrastructure in the southern districts of Selangor.

In a joint statement, ithe companies said the initiative is focused on the Southern Selangor Integrated Regional Development (IDRISS).

IDRISS aims to boost the economic potential of Sepang and Kuala Langat districts through diverse development projects spanning industrial, logistics, warehousing, ports, commerce, housing, tourism, and education.

“Leveraging PNSB's extensive experience and deep understanding of the state’s local development needs, alongside the collective strengths of LSH and IJM, we aim to create a robust infrastructure that supports our long-term vision for the region’s growth and development while incorporating sustainable elements within an ESG Framework."

Meanwhile, IJM group CEO and managing director Lee Chun Fai said: “Our involvement in this initiative draws upon IJM’s core expertise in construction and infrastructure development to support Selangor's growth. We aim to meet the state’s immediate and future infrastructure needs, ensuring long-term benefits. Our approach is pragmatic, focused on the well-being of the community and sustainable regional development."
