Chuping Valley development to become economic hub in Perlis

KANGAR: The Chuping new town development, to be called "Chuping Valley" is expected to become the economic hub of Perlis said Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Md Isa Sabu on April 25.

Md Isa said Chuping Valley would be developed as a logistic support centre to compliment Padang Besar which has grown into a booming economic centre in the north border.

Speaking at the Perlis Malay Chamber of Commerce's (DPMM) 35th Annual General Meeting today, Md Isa urged the people to take advantage of the opportunities available.

He said development in Chuping Valley would also change the landscape of Chuping, known for its sugar cane plantations.

"Malay entrepreneurs and businessmen must seize the opportunities available in the new development which will comprise an area of 1,000 hectares and include government institutions, resettlements, industries, business centres and theme parks," he said.

Perlis' presence in the North Corridor Economic Region (NCER) will bring about a form of transformation and develop sectors like farming, manufacturing, logistics and tourism, he said. -- Bernama
