Anwar Ibrahim discusses Johor projects with Menteri Besar for regional impact

The Malaysian federal government and the Johor state government are collaborating to ensure that the implementation of various projects in the state has a comprehensive impact, including on neighbouring countries, according to Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim. He met with Johor Menteri Besar Onn Hafiz Ghazi to discuss several governance and allocation issues related to Johor’s development and economy.

Among the topics discussed were the construction of health and road infrastructure, the Customs Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) Complex, the Financial Hub, as well as the construction of mosques and religious schools in Felda settlements. The two leaders also addressed post-flood relief assistance for farmers, breeders, and fishermen, and the issue of maintaining and repairing apartments that are more than 40 years old.

*In a social media post, the prime minister said that he received a courtesy call from Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi yesterday to discuss several issues pertaining to governance and allocations for Johor’s development and economy.*

This collaboration between the federal and state governments aims to achieve a balanced and comprehensive development in Johor, ensuring that the benefits of the projects reach not only the local population but also have a positive effect on neighbouring countries. The focus on infrastructure, health, and education demonstrates the commitment of both governments to improve the living conditions and opportunities for the people of Johor.

The joint efforts to address the challenges faced by farmers, breeders, and fishermen in the aftermath of floods, as well as the maintenance and repair of ageing apartments, indicate the governments’ dedication to the welfare and well-being of the residents of Johor.

This collaboration between the Malaysian federal government and the Johor state government is a promising step towards a more comprehensive and inclusive development strategy that takes into account the needs of the local population and the broader regional context.
