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]
