I REFER to your report “MVV goes green” (NST, May 6). The Malaysia Vision Valley, covering 153,000ha under the 11th Malaysia Plan, will boost development in Negri Sembilan.
Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan is passionate about this 30-year plan that will be undertaken in stages until 2045.
The area covers Port Dickson, Nilai and Seremban, which will be made into city states. Each will have infrastructure and amenities for people to have a balanced life.
The High-Speed Rail station in Seremban, with development taking shape in Bandar Ainsdale and Nilai Impian, will attract residents and city folk to commute to KL for work.
If one drives through Negri Sembilan, one will see integrated development projects taking shape.
Four initial projects to be implemented under MVV are:
UPGRADING of roads from Kuala Lumpur international Airport to Telok Kemang at RM260 million;
BUILDING new roads from Nilai to Bandar Enstek at RM200 million;
BUILDING an alternative road from the Seremban toll plaza to the Seremban Middle Ring Road at RM90 million; and,
SETTING up a 2,440ha manufacturing zone.
The state and federal governments want to see MVV attracting RM296 billion in investment and creating 1.38 million jobs.
The plan is to make Seremban the central business district, and the Nilai-Enstek-Sendayan area the education and sports cluster.
A park has been proposed near Bukit Galla.
All these efforts by the private, state and federal government partnerships will create a new emerging economic zone, making Negri Sembilan the preferred destination for people to live in.
