The Malaysian Investment Development Authority (Mida), joined with the Kedah state government, will be promoting Kedah as an investment-friendly destination through the Mida Invest Series: Unfolding States Business Potential initiative.
Invest Kedah Bhd CEO Muhamad Mahazi Ibrahim said he would present the facilities provided by the state government, including strategic areas for investors to invest in, at the programme scheduled to take place in Kuala Lumpur.
“We have industry, tourism, agriculture... we have more than 20 industrial sites. For example, in Kulim, Sungai Petani, Bukit Selambau, Gurun, Bukit Kayu Hitam and KRC (Kedah Rubber City). Those are all our industrial sites.
“I will inform tomorrow’s (today) audience, consisting of embassy representatives, business chambers, and industry players, among others, and they will know what Kedah has to offer and what we have prepared,” he said on Sept 21.
Regarding investments in the tourism sector, Muhamad Mahazi said Kedah is more focused on health tourism whereby investors have the opportunity to invest in the state to develop a private hospital in Langkawi in addition to Kulim where there is an industrial area which is the Kulim Hi-Tech Park (KHTP).
“We will offer our best to investors. For the first six months of this year, we are number one in manufacturing industry investment.
“The manufacturing sector creates many job opportunities and we are confident that we are on the right track,” he said
