Land border treaty to boost development in Sepang, Semenyih, Nilai

By Mustakim Ramli

SEPANG, July 5 — The move by the Selangor and Negeri Sembilan governments to finalise the borders of the two states will boost development in the areas.

Energy and Natural Resources Minister Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan said the development could be seen through the opening of new towns and industrial parks which would boost the economic activities of the locals.

“For example, the opening of industrial areas and municipalities at the border of Sepang, Semenyih and Nilai, which can now be optimised up to the agreed dividing line.

“Development can also be seen with the opening of new towns which are expected to boost local economic activities that also contribute to employment opportunities and living standards of the people,” he said.

He said this at the media conference for the Land Agreement signing ceremony between Selangor and Negeri Sembilan at Sama-Sama Hotel here yesterday.

Therefore, he called on other states to follow the example of Selangor and Negeri Sembilan in the determination of their boundaries because it will enable many border areas to be developed.

Commenting on the absence of the Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun who was to sign it yesterday, Takiyuddin said Aminuddin could not attend due to health factors and will sign it at a later date.

He said the Department of Survey and Mapping Malaysia (Jupem) will manage the matter to complete the border alignment process.

“A document like this must be signed by the State Secretary and the Menteri Besar. However, in the last moments, Dato’ Seri Aminuddin Harun could not attend due to health reasons.

“So only Selangor will be signing the document today (July 4), after this Jupem will manage it and the Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar will sign to make this document final. There is no issue because he is not present due to health problems,” he said.

Work on the land boundary’s demarcation and measurement between the two states began on May 5, 2016, and was fully completed on March 17, 2018, involving a distance of 111.9 kilometres.
