GE13: Seremban set for greater growth

SEREMBAN is an idyllic place to live or even retire in. The houses here are still reasonably priced and its proximity to Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya makes it attractive to those working in either places.

Known as Fuyong in the Cantonese dialect, Seremban is accessible via four highways North-South, Seremban-Kajang (Lekas), Elite and Kesas.

Seremban, which will soon be declared a city, saw a major increase in its population after the Kuala Lumpur International Airport opened in 1998.

The construction of a new highway linking Seremban to KLIA, which is ongoing, should see more people relocating here.

Another municipality which has experienced rapid growth in recent years is Nilai, located in the state's western corridor.

Home to several universities as well as bio-tech and medical institutes, Nilai has seen the establishment of several new townships.

The setting up of the multi-billion ringgit Integrated Education City in neighbouring Bandar Enstek and the presence of major global brands in Sendayan Tech Valley is testament to the rapid development this part of the state has undergone.

Despite being one of the smaller states, Negri Sembilan came in fourth in the amount of investments received in 2011.

Port Dickson is also expected to receive more tourists with the opening of new hotels as well as plans to turn this seaside town into a duty-free area.

In short, Negri Sembilan is poised for greater growth and development.
