SHAH ALAM, Jan 29 — Stability and prosperity are the basis of Selangor’s success in attracting investors to the state, said Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari.
He said this was proven when Selangor attracted a total of RM25.7 billion in investments, as of the third quarter of last year.
The state also managed to attract 199 manufacturing investment projects worth an estimated RM9.7 billion, which are expected to provide approximately 11,600 new job opportunities for the people.
“The investments are a manifestation of foreign investors’ confidence in selecting Selangor as one of Malaysia’s main investment destinations since it will generate the economy as well as boost the state’s manufacturing and service sectors.
“This accomplishment is also proof of the state government’s excellence and the people’s continued support for the administration,” he said.
Amirudin was speaking in his address during the Selangor-level 2023 Chinese New Year open house, at the Shah Alam City Council’s (MBSA) Dewan Bankuet, yesterday evening.
His Royal Highness the Sultan of Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah Alhaj and Her Royal Highness the Tengku Permaisuri of Selangor Tengku Permaisuri Norashikin also graced the event.

“The state leadership and I will ensure that Selangor continues to excel as a state that always moves forward, proving it as ‘The Golden State of Malaysia’,” he said.
