“We will look into various aspects eg. helping small and medium enterprises utilise digital technology, a proper waste management system and methods to ease traffic flow,” he added.

He said the master plan is an all-inclusive development programme that pursues to be holistic, environmentally-friendly and sustainable in nature.

“It is my sincere hope that the PD Masterplan will kick-start the process of addressing various long-held concerns of the community of Port Dickson.
