The Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley (GKL/
KV) NKEA seeks to realise the region’s full
potential as the pulse of Malaysia’s commercial
activities. In doing so, this NKEA aims to
transform Malaysia’s capital into a world-class
city and globally competitive economic hub.
With its initiatives anchored on a geographic region, the Greater KL/KV NKEA is unique from other NKEAs. As a result, while the Greater KL/KV NKEA contributes indirectly to the country's GNI and job creation, its efforts are not immediately driven by these goals. It is instead more focussed on developing the factors which support economic growth and improve its liveability.
These factors include attracting investments from multinational companies (MNCs) and attracting skilled human capital.
The NKEA also gears the region's liveability towards the standards of other global cities by improving the public
transport system and the environment while enhancing the region's unique places of interest.
The Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) and River of Life (RoL) are the fagship projects of Greater KL/KV that enable more investments and employments within the GKL/KV area. Both projects have already started and are right on track to be
completed by 2020, thus meeting the economic and competitive demands of a global city.
