Malacca mulls a new port

Kuala Lumpur: The state government of Malacca is looking at building another big port in the region. Studies are being conducted into the possibility of developing a port capable of handling containers, passengers, roros as well as tankers.

Lim Ban Hong, who oversees the state’s transport portfolio, said: “Malacca does not have natural resources and is in dire need of an international port as a catalyst for economic growth.” He also pointed to growing trade between China and Malaysia.

Malacca’s two existing ports are Tanjung Bruas Port dan Kuala Linggi Port.  [12/11/14]
