The Penang government is planning to develop a water theme park in Batu Kawan, Malaysia, in order to attract investors to the town.
It is part of a plan to develop various commercial, housing and mixed building projects in Batu Kawan, Penang.
Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said: “The Penang Development Corporation (PDC) is planning to expand on this idea (water theme park) and are open to suggestions. This will help develop Batu Kawan as a complete mixed development area.”
“However, I do not have information on how much land is left in the area (for development). This is because, every plot of land have been identified to investors, even though (development) has yet to begin.”
A total of 243.62 hectares of land in the Batu Kawan Industrial Park have been sold to local and foreign companies for them to start and expand their businesses.
In 2013, the Penang Development Corp (PDC) announced a request for proposal (RFP) to build an international theme park project.
