Johor is expected to garner investments of up to RM260bil by 2015 said Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman.
Abdul Ghani said Johor currently has about RM100bil in investments and the recent joint projects between Singapore and Malaysia in Iskandar Malaysia was also a positive indication for things to come.
“The recent meeting between Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Singapore premier Lee Hsien Loong resulted in the announcement of three major projects with a total investment of RM28bil.
“All these investments show that investors are confident with the current Government and are in support of our economic transformation policies and long term plans,” he said.
He was speaking during the Johor MCA Chinese New Year dinner held at SJKC Chi Ming 1 here recently.
Abdul Ghani said that Johoreans should be wise when casting their votes for the coming general election as a change in the Government could cause a disruption with current plans that have already been put in place.
“While Pakatan Rakyat is busy making promises, the Government has successfully attracted billions of ringgit in investment here,” he said.
He added that the investments had also generated job and business opportunities for the people here.
“These are promises which have been fulfilled and can be felt by the people,” he said adding that the Government was also sensitive towards the needs of all people including the Chinese and the Indian community.
The dinner which was attended by more 2,000 people including MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek and other state MCA leaders.
