KUALA LUMPUR, June 28 — Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) will develop an education and entrepreneurship area called the “Edu-Biz Park” in Bukit Jalil, costing RM1.3 billion, in the near future.
Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal said the project would further boost Mara as a pioneer in education and entrepreneurship in the country when it combines both elements in one place.
“Mara has signed an agreement with Technology Park Malaysia for a large area...it (plan) is already in the pipeline,” he said at a press conference after opening the Umno Youth Tuition Programme organised jointly with the Mara Education Foundation (YPM), here, today.
It is understood that the development would be on a nine-hectare piece of land. Also present at the ceremony were Umno Youth head Khairy Jamaluddin, who is also Youth and Sports Minister, Mara director-general Datuk Ibrahim Ahmad and YPM chairman Datuk Yussoff Dohab. — Bernama
