Johor stakeholders take the state to new heights

By Aisyah Suwardi

WITH its strategic location in Peninsular Malaysia and vast land area of 19,102sq km, Johor was in good stead when crowned the country’s southern economic corridor in 2006. Since then, the state has grown from strength to strength with innovative developments and outstanding projects.

The contributions of property developers in building the state into the next Klang Valley have been recognised through the StarProperty.my Awards 2018: Jewels of Johor.

The awards night on Sept 18 was graced by Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar and Tunku Mahkota Johor Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim.Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar receiving the token of appreciation from Star Media Group chairman Datuk Fu Ah Kiow while Tunku Mahkota Johor Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim (left) and Datuk Seri Wong Chun Wai (right) look on during the StarProperty.my Awards 2018: Jewels of Johor.

To celebrate the event, StarProperty.my has published a coffee table book titled Jewels of Johor: Johor Most Exceptional Development 2018/2019. Inside the book, the Ruler noted that the modernisation of Johor has helped to improve the lives of his subjects and heaved the economy to new heights.

“One sector in particular that has made a major impact on Johor’s economy is the real estate market, which I hope will provide more quality homes for all Johoreans,” said Sultan Ibrahim.

Also present at the event were Star Media Group Bhd chairman Datuk Fu Ah Kiow, group managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Wong Chun Wai, and chief revenue officer Lydia Wang.

Wong attributed the lively property market in Johor to the close collaboration between the state government and the private sector.

He said: “Johor has become a leading investment destination that offers quality businesses and trade opportunities as well as numerous mega projects to spur growth.
