In Bertam, Penang, INDUSTRIAL development must be based on high technology and skilled workers must be involved.

Kepala Batas MP Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican said Bertam Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had developed carefully during the time of former Prime Minister.

“I was told that the area was ready to be developed as an industrial site and if so, it should be a high-tech area,” he said.

After the launch of Kepala Batas’s Esport Youth Cabin, Reezal Merican confirmed that he did not agree with Bertam’s proposal to build centralized works (CLQ).

He indirectly informed the developer of his concerns and expressed his position to Mayor Seberang Prai.

Housing and Local Government Minister Reezal Merican said it is not appropriate to build a CLQ in a residential area and it will affect many traditional towns.

He said, however, that this did not mean that Bertam had abandoned industrial development.

“I will not accept the so-called‘ backward industry ’in Bertamen, which will lead to the arrival of foreign workers,” he said, referring to low-tech factories that employ low-skilled workers.

He added that he will ask the state government to list the types of industries that will be suitable for him.

It is understood that Bertam’s urbanization project, in the process of obtaining planning permission, has two packages.

The one package will build 45 industrial plots and three blocks of 10-storey workers, and the second package will consist of 99 industrial plots and four blocks of 10-storey workers.
