Kulai Municipal Council president highlights district's potential for industrial development


KULAI: The Johor-Singapore Special Economic Zone (JS-SEZ) is expected to attract more investments into the Kulai district.

Kulai Municipal Council (MPKU) president Mohd Fahmi Salam said that as one of the key areas in the JS-SEZ, the district is in a position to continue attracting investments.

“Of the RM70.6bil of total investments approved in Johor for 2022, 70% were in Kulai," he told reporters after the MPKU full council meeting on Thursday (April 25, 2024).

Mohd Fahmi said several locations, including Ibrahim Technopolis (Ibtec), the data centre hub of Sedenak Tech Park and Senai Airport City, have the potential to be developed into major industrial areas.

“Although 70% of land usage in Kulai involves agricultural activities, there is a strong interest in industrial and property development projects,’’ said Mohd Fahmi.

He said MPKU is expected to complete the Kulai District Local Plan 2035 this September, adding that the plan would help the council undertake future developments that have already been outlined.

Mohd Fahmi also said 300 units of CCTVs would be installed in the district within the next three to five years as part of the smart city initiative and safety for Kulai residents.
