Pasir Gudang takes to silver screen for tourism


PASIR GUDANG: The Pasir Gudang City Council (MBPG) will work with a prominent film production company to further promote the city as an exciting destination for national and international visitors.

Pasir Gudang mayor Datuk Asman Shah Abd Rahman (pic) said the partnership will highlight the city’s unique attractions and cultural richness, which is in line with Visit Malaysia Year 2026.

“This is one of the plans we have under our own Visit Pasir Gudang Year 2025 agenda,” he said after chairing the MBPG full council meeting at Menara Aqabah yesterday.

“We will collaborate with a few government agencies and film production companies, where we hope they can feature Pasir Gudang in their productions.

“By leveraging the storytelling power of cinema, the council hopes to draw attention to the city’s lesser-known gems,” he said.

Asman Shah added that the city has various iconic locations, from the green landscapes of Tanjung Puteri Golf Resort to the Pasir Gudang Kite Museum.

On another matter, Asman Shah said MBPG will work with tree specialists from the Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia to identify which trees pose a public hazard to residents.

“We are collaborating with arborists from the Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia (Ilam), who will determine which trees require cutting down or trimming,” he said.

Ilam will also assist in suggesting which trees are suitable for planting in Pasir Gudang, Asman Shah added.

“We need to identify which trees are suitable to plant in Pasir Gudang’s large industrial area; we will only plant certain types of trees in these areas, especially ones that do not affect large vehicles,” he said.

The follows a recommendation from Housing and Local Government Minister Nga Kor Ming for all local authorities to employ arborists to assess the health of all trees in urban areas.

Asman Shah added that MBPG is planning to use Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags to monitor all trees in the Pasir Gudang area.

“The tags will provide us with details about planting date and carbon absorption, enabling us to prepare for the future use of carbon credits,” he said
