Iskandar Malaysia: City of the future

 Iskandar Malaysia in Johor is the pilot region for a smart city model for Malaysia.


THE aim of a smart city programme is to enhance the people's quality of life, and to achieve a sustainable economic and technological ecosystem that would ultimately create smart, connected and inclusive communities.


Iskandar Malaysia enters the fast lane

The chief of Iskandar Investment Bhd (IIB) is bullish on the outlook for Iskandar Malaysia in Johor, attributing his optimism to various projects like the high-speed rail (HSR) plan and the transformation of Desaru.


"Hopefully, it (HSR) can come earlier. Iskandar Malaysia will benefit from the MRT link between JB Sentral and Woodlands in Singapore," said IIB president and chief executive officer Datuk Syed Mohamed Syed Ibrahim.
