MCKIP symbol of close friendship
KUALA LUMPUR: The name "Malaysia-China Kuantan Industrial Park (MCKIP)" says a lot about the emphasis Malaysia places on its friendship with China, as well as the close bond between the two countries.
MCKIP, an important component of the East Coast Economic Region measuring 607ha, is the first industrial park in Malaysia to be accorded national status.
Launched earlier this year, the park is expected to be fully completed in two years and has already attracted investment worth RM10.5bil, and promises to create 8,500 jobs.
Guangxi Beibu Gulf International Port Group is a big player in MCKIP.
