In line with the priorities of the State Government, Sime Darby Property Berhad is planning for the development of a high-tech and industrial park, which is the first heartbeat project among the identified six within the first phase of developments to be activated. Sime Darby Property currently owns 2,838 acres within the MVV 2.0; and has the option to acquire another 8,796 acres from Sime Darby Berhad within five years from the date of its listing. The first phase of MVV 2.0 spans over a 30-
year development period covering 27,000 acres.
Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz said, “Sime Darby Property Berhad will be undertaking this project as the Master Developer, which allows us to extract and enhance the value of our land-bank within the MVV 2.0 development area. We will take on key
projects that will become among the principal drivers of the country’s future economic growth and social development. The company’s significant role in MVV 2.0 is a continuation of our commitment towards the development of Negeri Sembilan.”
