Iskandar Johor Bahru Malaysia (Never just Iskandar, which is incorrect), is a special economic region in the state of Johor, where the government aims to develop a strong, diversified, dynamic, and global economy. It was established in July 2006 by then Prime Minister, Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, and is named after the late Sultan of Johor, Al-Marhum Sultan Mahmud Iskandar Ibni Sultan Ismail Al-Khalidi.
Encompassing an area of 2,217 km2—which is three times the size of Singapore , Iskandar Malaysia area covers most of the southern area of Johor: Johor Bahru, Kota Tinggi, Kulai jaya, and Pontian. Iskandar Malaysia was modeled after the Pearl River Delta Economic Zone in southern China, and through it, the government is promoting nine economic sectors: Manufacturing, electrical and electronics, petro and oleo-chemicals, food and aggro processing, services, logistics, tourism, healthcare, and education. As you might have noticed, housing is not one of the sectors that are promoted, but as with any high-impact development project, it comes with the package. Where there are jobs, there is money; where there is money, there are people; and where there are people, there will certainly be houses or property. Where there have house or property , there will certainly a lot property investment in Iskandar Johor Malaysia.
“I am bullish on Iskandar Malaysia in the long term. There has been lots of talk of over development and the population not being able to absorb such supply. Iskandar Malaysia is a 20-year masterplan. It should not be viewed as just a short-term play. The supply is created to meet the future demand. There are very few opportunities in the world to invest in a city that is growing from scratch, such as Iskandar Malaysia,”
“Iskandar Malaysia is to Singapore what Shenzhen is to Hong Kong. Both the Malaysia and Singapore government are working together to ensure its success. This makes Iskandar Malaysia a very exciting prospect in the long-term. I believe the industrial flagship zone is very promising,”
“I believe that Iskandar Malaysia’s success will be pinned to the industrial flagship in a big way. If the industrial sector takes off, Iskandar Malaysia will be a huge success. Many of Singapore’s SME (small and medium sized enterprises) with lower-end manufacturing concerns have been encouraged to relocate to Iskandar Malaysia by none other than their own Singapore government. Plus, the various incentives provided further add to its lustre and attractiveness,”
“This is such an overlooked point. Places like Senai, Kulai, Tebrau Corridor, Pasir Gudang and Perling may not sound very “sexy” to most, but these are the future growth areas, as they are either part of Iskandar Malaysia or very close by. The workers from Zones C, D and E need places to stay and they will look at these areas. So, if you like options to Flagships A and B, well, there are plenty,”
