Further, the group expects an increase in construction activities with the pick-up in private development activities as well as from the recent announcement of the Budget 2011 and the Economic Transformation Programme."
It outstanding order book currently stands at RM2.4 billion and therefore, the group expects its construction division perform even better. Yau said the group's property unbilled sales stand at about RM470 million from existing property development projects in Malaysia, Singapore and China.
