Bravo Pakatan

Saw this in Malaysia-Today. A real good piece of news which I don't see it in other news or platform. It's good and enlightening to see the Pakatan state government working together closely for the benefit of the rakyat. This show off maturity in administering the state in togetherness. I applaud their working together and I must say that I am truly envious of the fact that Malacca, my state is not doing any better but spending unnecessary.

Opposition state govts share platfom to attract investors

For the first time, three opposition state chief ministers shared the same platform to promote Selangor, Perak and Penang to potential investors on the last day of the World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT) here today.

Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim together with Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin took about 15 minutes each to describe the investment incentives, potential and advantages in their respective states.

Lim, who described Penang as an "ICT jewel in the making", said the state will continue to build on new niche areas to expand its core competencies.

"We want more high technology and high value-added investments, and are upgrading our supply chain and capability," he said.

The state, Lim said, was also evolving into a logistics hub under the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER), which encompasses Perlis, Kedah, Penang and the north of Perak.

He also took the opportunity to promote Penang's competency, accountability and transparency government, in short the "CAT government".

Mohammad Nizar said Perak was changing from "tin mines to MIND industry", with MIND being an acronym for multimedia, information and communications technology (ICT) outsourcing, new media, and research, development and design.

He said at Perak's MSC Malaysia Cybercenter@Meru Raya, located in Jelapang, near Ipoh and covering an area of about 85 hectares, a RM40 million Perak Techno-Trade Centre has been built to serve the communications infrastructure needs of investors setting up operations there.

He added that Dubai-based Spacetoon International Ltd, a leading global player in the animation industry, will start production there by July 2008.

Abdul Khalid said besides providing various facilities and amenities for the ICT industry, Selangor was also able to offer a pleasant living environment.

"Selangor is already home to a number of thriving ICT companies," he said.
