KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 5): Sime Darby Property Bhd has kick started its first project under the Malaysia Vision Valley 2.0 development with the groundbreaking of XME Business Park in Nilai Impian, Negeri Sembilan.
Spanning 69.72 acres of freehold land, the business park will be the first managed industrial park in Negeri Sembilan, with a gross development value (GDV) of RM520 million.
Sime Darby Property acting group CEO Datuk Wan Hashimi Albakri said the XME Business Park is strategically located at the gateway of Negeri Sembilan and Malaysia Vision Valley 2.0.
