Bill Holman clearly remembers Mimaland, which was already in existence when he began working on Sunway Lagoon back in the late 1980‘s.

With most projects now broken ground or operating, Iskandar Malaysia is in position to rake in the value from investments made
Was 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?

The city welcomed 2,100 delegates to the 8th World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF) which was held from Dec 4 to 6.

Kuala Lumpur, with its numerous world-class convention centres, has been the host city for many international events. Singapore has also been a popular choice.
In the past, Johor Baru was unlikely to be the choice of organisers of global events.
So when it became known, early this year, that JB would be the venue to hold the WIEF, some were in a state of disbelief while other were overjoyed.
