PETALING JAYA: Property developer Tropicana Corporation Bhd (Tropicana), working with the Langkawi state government has completed the upgrading of the Pantai Kok Rest and Recreation (R&R) Centre. The initiative cost RM2.5mil and included the completion of eight commercial lots, an enhancement of washroom and surau facilities, as well as the allocation of more than 70 parking bays for cars, motorcycles and bicycles.
Group executive director Jared Ang said that Tropicana’s contribution aims to create a meaningful impact on the district’s long-term sustainability.
“The joint renewal of the Pantai Kok R&R Centre showcases not just Tropicana’s commitment to building a vibrant and sustainable township in Langkawi, but the Group’s targeted approach to social outreach as well. By focusing on and bolstering one of the state’s key economic drivers, we ensure that our contributions have meaningful impact and contribute to the district’s long-term sustainability, in line with our core mantra of Redefining the Art of Caring,” he said.
Ang also said that Tropicana has increased its focus on corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities to foster positive impacts throughout its value chains. It organised the Tropicana go-go-FIT 3km Beach Fun Run at Pantai Cenang in July, which attracted 200 participants, and the Langkawi International Folding Bike Challenge in May.
Spearheaded by the Tropicana Foundation and as part of their commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles, the foundation has since 2011 channelled over RM26mil towards charitable causes and underprivileged segments of society, including orphanages, old folks’ homes, flood victims, frontliners, sports associations and more.
