Infrastructure and Communication

Malaysia's newest and biggest airport, the RM9-billion Kuala Lumpur International Airport, is located 50 kilometres south of the federal capital.

The greatest advantage to manufacturers in Malaysia has been the nation's persistent drive to develop and upgrade its infrastructure. Over the years, these investments have paid off and serious bottlenecks have been avoided. Today, Malaysia can boast of having one of the most well-developed infrastructure among the newly industrialising countries of Asia.

A landmark event was the completion of Malaysia's newest and biggest airport, the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), which opened for business in 1998. The following year, Cyberjaya, Malaysia's first intelligent city and the nucleus of the country's Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC), became a reality, complete with a multimedia university to provide a pool of knowledge workers for industries.

Recently launced is Kuala Lumpur Sentral, a transportation hub integrating all major rail transport networks, including the Express Rail Link to the KLIA and Putrajaya, the government's new administrative centre.

The remaining RM1 billion will be spent on roads in Peninsular Malaysia, he said.“My administration will continue to improve aggressively infrastructure in rural and outer areas,” Najib said in a speech to civil servants in Putrajaya today to mark his recent 100th day as prime minister. “The government is very concerned with the livelihood of the poor people.”Najib, who took power in April and acted as finance minister since last year, has introduced stimulus plans worth RM67 billion and eased rules to attract foreign investors.

The government will allocate RM2 billion to bring clean water to 60,000 people in Sabah and Sarawak, as part of a plan to broaden water supply in those states to 90 per cent of the population, from an earlier target of 70 per cent and the current 62 per cent, Najib said.Electricity CoverageThe target for those receiving electricity in the two states will rise to 95 per cent from 80 per cent, bringing power to 80,000 more households with a budget of RM3.9 billion, Najib said. Twenty-four-hour power supply will be provided to 7,000 Orang Asli, or indigenous people, in Peninsular Malaysia, Najib said.The government, which has repeatedly promised to free up road congestion in the nation’s gridlocked cities, will also provide 35 new four-car trains for a light rail service serving the capital, Kuala Lumpur, Najib said today.Malaysia aims to increase the proportion of people using public transportation in the Klang Valley, which includes the capital and surrounding areas, to 25 per ce
