Kuala Lumpur − The Malaysian Rubber Board (MRB) will build a new headquarters and other key facilities at Sungai Buloh beginning next year, reported The Star.
Sungai Buloh is a sub-district of Petaling district and adjacent to the capital of Kuala Lumpur. The project costs RM1.1bn (€249.4m) and the development will be carried out by MRB’s project delivery partner KLIA Premier Holding’s units − KLIA Associates and KLIA Consultancy Services on the MRB-owned 216.5-hectare stretch of land.
“The MRB is expected to invest a big portion of the money obtained from the asset monetisation programme in Sungai Buloh to develop five facilities,” said the MRB chairman Datuk Wira Ahmad Hamzah.
The project will see the construction of a new headquarters, a research and development centre, a college, a rubber discovery museum centre and a business cluster. Ahmad added it was envisaged these five facilities would extend MRB’s prime focus to be a centre for rubber research that would eventually be recognised internationally.
The entire project will be done in phases starting from next year and is scheduled to be completed by 30 August 2018.
