KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 25): UEM Sunrise Bhd plans to divest its non-strategic lands worth RM400 million to RM500 million this year.

The real estate property developer has identified several lands to dispose of, including land in Seputeh (Kuala Lumpur), Seri Kembangan (Selangor) and Johor, its managing director and chief executive officer Anwar Syahrin Abdul Ajib told a press conference here.
