Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley

As the capital and commercial heart of the country, the Greater Kuala Lumpur (KL)/Klang Valley NKEA represents a crucial component in the plan to transform Malaysia into a high-income nation by 2020. The overall aim is to transform the region into a world-class metropolis that will boast top standards in every area from business infrastructure to liveability.

By 2020, the NKEA is projected to create 300,000 new jobs through the implementation of nine Entry Point Projects (EPPs).

    Business Opportunities

    The Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley NKEA has identified two business opportunities that will enhance the city’s liveability and generate incremental GNI – Vitalising Putrajaya and increasing the efficiency of sewerage systems.

    • BO 1Vitalising Putrajaya
      Putrajaya, as the Government’s administrative capital, could benefit from the spillover effect of Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley’s rapid growth. It is equipped with top-of-the-line infrastructure but lacks vitality, which can be boosted via these initiatives:

      • Reshaping the main boulevard by populating the 4.2km main strip of Putrajaya town with retail shops and upscale street vendors.
      • Leveraging waterfront potential to create a commercial and recreational district.
      • Increasing connectivity to create better linkages between Putrajaya and surrounding areas.
      • Stimulating economic activities by developing supporting industries.
      • Increasing tourism and optimising the use of the Putrajaya International Convention Centre.
    • BO 3Basic sewerage services
      By 2020, the population in Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley is expected to increase by over 65%. The region’s existing sewerage facilities will not be able to cope and hence efforts are being made to move the population away from fragmented and small sewerage treatment plants (STPs) and connect them to more efficient regional networks.

      The Government will invest in upgrading 32 regional STPs and 1,495 multi-point STPs that do not meet the new Department of Environment standards. The goal is to have 91% of all STPs upgraded to Standard A Category 1 by 2020. A rehabilitation programme will also be undertaken to upgrade 346km of the existing sewer network.
