    Efforts to transform the Malaysian border zone near Singapore into a bustling commercial corridor appear to be on track after a rocky start.

    The zone, known as Iskandar, is emerging as an attractive opportunity that deserves to be on the radar of those considering investment in the new growth centres of Asia.

    Iskandar is a 2,216 square kilometre urbanisation project, three times the size of Singapore. Nusajaya, the residential zone at its core, which stares across the water at the Singapore skyline, is just a 45-minute drive from Singapore’s Changi airport. The zone is geared towards a residential metropolis with educational, medical and theme-park infrastructures being used to attract resident migrants from Singapore. Logistics, transport and industrial-related infrastructure is being developed in adjacent zones.

    ISKANDAR Malaysia, a region of 2,217 sq km just north of Singapore represents an important economic and geographical region for Malaysia.

    To Singapore, it is potentially a hinterland, provided conditions are right.

    In 2005, the Federal Government of Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur and the state of Johor agreed that there had to be a focused and developmental approach to realise the region’s full potential.

    The plan was to eliminate uncoordinated and duplicated development and grow a sustainable metropolis.

    Malaysia’s state investment arm Khazanah Nasional was tasked to study this and came up with a conceptual plan which became known as the South Johor Economic Region concept plan.

    With most projects now broken ground or operating, Iskandar Malaysia is in position to rake in the value from investments made
    puteri-harbour-catalyst-developmentWas it a rebranding, the entry of the Singapore government’s own investment vehicles, improved bilateral relations, or the entry of crucial names like Pinewood Studios (of James Bond fame), Legoland, Marlborough College (of Kate Middleton fame), Traders Hotel and the Hello Kitty theme park? Or was it the attractive tax and government incentives, the heating up of the Singapore property market, or just timing in its serendipitous mysterious way?
