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).
