MALACCA: Malacca will set up one-stop centres in industrial estates to cater to the needs of investors.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the centres would have clinics, restaurants and courier and security offices.

Speaking to reporters after visiting Panasonic Electronic Devices Malaysia Sdn Bhd in Batu Berendam, he said the concept was similar to those in the United States, Japan and South Korea.

“The state economic development corporation will set up the centres in an area close to the factories in the industrial estates.

“We are also planning to set up an international school in the state to attract Japanese investors to bring along their families.

“At present, most Japanese chief executives and senior management staff stay alone in Malacca and put up their families in Kuala Lumpur.

“We want to reverse this trend and entice them to bring their families over to Malacca,” he added.

Mohd Ali said a committee comprising state government officials and senior foreign executives would be set up to discuss the curriculum for the international school.

He said that under the Ninth Malaysia Plan, the Federal Government had allocated RM30mil for infrastructure development in the state's industrial estates.

“We will use RM3mil to put up streetlights, repair drains and roads and plant trees in the Batu Berendam industrial estate,” he added.

Mohd Ali said the state would also brief foreign expatriates on the Malaysia My Second Home campaign.
