The northern region of Selangor will see an improvement of economic development with the 233-km long West Coast Expressway (WCE) from Taiping, Perak, to Banting, Selangor.

This was due to the fact that there would be more vehicles expected to use the expressway, thus benefiting local economic activities, Mentri Besar Amirudin Shari said at a Selangor State Legislative Assembly sitting, yesterday.

He said that at the same time, the state government will also ask relevant state exco members, namely, Rodziah Ismail (Entrepreneur, Rural, Village and Traditional Village Development) and V. Ganabatirau (Socio-Economic Empowerment, Development, and Caring Government) to see proper development potential to be developed along the highway.

He said this in his reply to a supplementary question from Ahmad Mustain Othman (PKR-Sabak) who wanted to know the state government’s allocation to Sabak Bernam.

Amirudin also said it would be unfair for any party to label the state government did not develop the areas along the highway as various efforts had been implemented so far.

The state government plans to focus on those activities which include eco-tourism, fisheries, and agriculture which will involve areas including Kuala Selangor, Tanjong Karang, and Sabak Bernam.
