KUANTAN

 

Overview

The capital of the Pahang state on the east of the peninsula, Kuantan is said to be the commercial, social and economic hub for the entire east coast, mostly attributed to its strategic location.

From its humble historical beginnings of small businesses and the fishing trade in the 1850s, and then tin mining and rubber plantations, the city was earmarked by the government in the National Physical Plan in 2005. Since then it has seen a tremendous amount of development encompassing tourism, trade, transportation and commerce projects.

Kuantan has always been a popular tourism destination in Malaysia, particularly for its beaches. As such, the August 2013 opening of the Terminal Kuantan Sentral – a public transportation terminal – in Bandar Indera Mahkota, enables easier ferrying of visitors and domestic travel. The RM50 million project is a state-of-the-art transportation hub and is set to be the station for the expected high-speed train that will connect Kuantan to Kuala Lumpur.

Property Developments

Among the massive projects that have emerged in Kuantan include Putra Square, Bukit Gambang Water Resort, Pahang Tech Park and Kuantan Port City. Also the 2009 launch of the Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in the state capital is projected to boost growth within the east peninsula region. The SEZ is expected to generate some RM90 billion worth of investments and offer incentives to investors ranging from import and export duties exemptions to a full investment tax allowance. There are numerous other projects in the pipeline, including tourist villages and a commuter service to modernise and develop the state, and region.

Among the new townships that have been constructed around the suburbs of Kuantan are Alam Perdana, Bukit Istana and Astana Permai within Indera Mahkota; D'Marina Kuantan and Bandar Kuantan Puteri in Tanjung Lumpur, Beserah and Balok's Bandar Baru Gebeng and Bandar Damansara Kuantan as well as the Halal Park, Cybertech City and Science Park, all within Gambang.
