UNIVERSITI Tunku Abdul Rah-man (Utar) got a RM10,000 boost – thanks to Ipoh-based developer Century Homeland Sdn Bhd.
Century Homeland executive chairman Johnson Lau handed over the mo-ney to Lumut MP Datuk Kong Cho Ha, who is also Perak MCA deputy chief, at the recent launching of the Koh City project developed by the company in Sitiawan.
Lau said the donation to Utar was part of its corporate responsibility.
“We hope other corporate companies will follow suit,” he said after Kong, who is also Deputy Science, Technology and Innovation Minister, launched the project which comprises 27 units of three-storey shop lots.
Lau said Century Homeland was expected to make RM12mil in sales from the project which is sited on a 1.6ha plot.
He said the project started last Sep-tember and was 20% completed.
Lau also said the company had a to-tal land bank of about 40.5ha in Teluk Intan, Ipoh, Bidor, Sitiawan and Cyber-city, adding that it planned to develop these areas in the next five years.
Among those present at the launching was Tebing Tinggi assemblyman Datuk Chew Wai Khoon, who is also state MCA vice-chairman.
