Klang Valley: Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan


( 2006 Est.)
Internet Users,

Source : InternetWorldStats

Malaysia is a federation of 13 states in Southeast Asia,
The country consists of two geographical regions divided by the South China Sea:

Peninsular Malaysia (or West Malaysia) on the Malay Peninsula shares a land border on the north with Thailand and is connected by the Johor-Singapore Causeway and the Malaysia-Singapore Second Link to the south with Singapore. It consists of nine sultanates (Johor, Kedah, Kelantan, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang, Perak, Perlis, Selangor and Terengganu), two states headed by governors (Malacca and Penang), and two federal territories (Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur).
Malaysian Borneo (or East Malaysia) occupies the northern part of the island of Borneo, bordering Indonesia and surrounding the Sultanate of Brunei. It consists of the states of Sabah and Sarawak and the federal territory of Labuan island.

Klang Valley

Klang Valley is an area in Malaysia comprising Kuala Lumpur and its suburbs and adjoining cities in the state of Selangor. An alternative reference to this would be Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan Area or Greater Kuala Lumpur, though neither of these terms is used locally. It is geographically delineated by Titiwangsa Mountains to the north and east and the Strait of Malacca to the west. The conurbation has a total population of over 4 million as of 2004, and is the heartland of Malaysia's industry and commerce. In the most recent census, the population in the Klang Valley has expanded to 5.2 million, and in 2006, the population in this area is estimated to be 6.5 million.

The valley is named after Klang River, the principal river that flows through it, which is closely linked to the early development of the area as a cluster of tin mining towns in the late 19th century. Development of the region took place largely in the East-West direction (between Gombak and Port Klang) but the urban areas surrounding Kuala Lumpur have since grown south towards the border with Negeri Sembilan and north towards Rawang. Strictly speaking, the southern and northern areas are not geographically part of the river valley, so the term Klang Valley is always used to describe urban areas surrounding Kuala Lumpur rather than a strict geographical feature.

KLIA Aeropolis
An Airport City

KLIA’s land bank of over 100 square kilometres certainly gives it a distinct advantage over most other gateways in terms of having space to grow and develop.

And with only a fraction of it used today and just 60% of the site set aside for aeronautical use, the airport has an abundance of land available for the development of non-aviation related commercial activities.

The land designated for airport and aeronautical use will serve the core airport growth needs over the long-term.

The rest will be clearly demarcated into zones comprising Airport Central, which will serve as the core commercial area; a business park functioning as a secondary commercial area; an aerospace park, logistics park and aeronautical support zone to cater to aviation-linked businesses; and a leisure and recreational zone

Demand-driven initiative

According to Malaysia Airports’ development strategy, KLIA Aeropolis will be a demand-driven project initially centred on three key clusters – Air Cargo & Logistics; Aerospace & Aviation; and MICE & Leisure.

As a result, plans are on the drawing board for a Cargo Logistics Park, Aerospace Park and a Aeronautical Support Zone for MRO (Maintenance, Repair, Overhaul) services across 90, 100 and 200 acre plots respectively with the airport operator admitting that it is considering a number of options for funding and developing the projects.

“Various financing options and development structures are being evaluated to ensure the maximum value to the airport,” says a spokesman.

“These include BOT type projects funded by private investors but built on land under Malaysia Airports management and leased to them on long-term contracts.

“We will create value through smart partnership and synergistic collaboration with our business partners in order to achieve mutual benefits.”

Malaysia Airports is, however, happy to reveal that all future developments for the MICE & Leisure cluster will follow the successful joint venture model it adopted with Mitsui Fudosan to create the highly popular Mitsui Outlet Park KLIA at Sepang, six kilometres from the airport.

The existing Sepang International Circuit used for Formula 1’s Malaysian Grand Prix sits within the area allocated for leisure and recreation/MICE related projects.

“We are very clear in our KLIA Aeropolis development strategy,” says Badlisham. “The clusters identified are synergistic to the larger airport system and will serve to not only benefit the airport operator but also the aviation supply chain as a whole.”

Talking about the Air Cargo & Logistics cluster, Badlisham notes that express cargo shipments at KLIA have grown by 33% since 2010, mirroring the growth of the e-commerce market in South East Asia, which is expected to account for $35 billion worth of business annually by 2018.

And with intra-Asian airfreight projected to grow by an average of 6.5% per annum up to 2033, he believes the future potential of air cargo for KLIA is clear for all to see.

He says: “We are targeting an annual long-term forecast of 2.5 million to three million tonnes by 2050, from about 726,000 tonnes today. KLIA Aeropolis will serve as the core of our air cargo and logistics eco-system that extends to Penang and East Malaysia.”

He is also confident that KLIA Aeropolis has the potential to become a leading centre for aerospace development, pointing out that the country’s appeal to the industry has already led to over 300 companies setting up operations in Malaysia, a quarter of which are based at either KLIA or Subang, about 60km away from KLIA.

This boom has led to the country formulating a clearly defined national aerospace blueprint that aims to position Malaysia as a leading player in the global aerospace value chain.

“Boeing and Airbus tell us that 30% of all their aircraft deliveries today are to the Asia-Pacific region,” comments Badlisham.

“APAC also accounts for 21% of the global MRO market demand and is expected to grow at 4.6% per annum for the foreseeable future. Our aim is to capture at least 5% of the global market share.”

He adds: “As a result of this strategy, KLIA Aeropolis will enable an aviation business eco-system by leveraging on businesses such MROs and OEMs. It will function as the core of Malaysia Airports’ aerospace belt, which includes Subang and Melaka airports.

“Our focus on attracting first-tier aerostructure manufacturers is also expected to drive the growth of second-tier set-ups.”

Based on PWC’s economic analysis of the KLIA Aeropolis development plans – excluding airport terminal operations and expansion – the total estimated impact of the project over a 15-year period could amount to a GDP contribution of around $7.2 billion and 56,000 new jobs.

The projected figures certainly support the government’s agenda of striving to make Malaysia a high-income nation by 2020.

Sharing his aspiration on the future of KLIA Aeropolis, Tan Sri Dato’ Dr Wan Abdul Aziz Wan Abdullah, the chairman of Malaysia Airports, says: “I envisage KLIA Aeropolis to be a truly remarkable airport city development with top class tourism and business attractions.

“It marks a promise of sustainability and growth for companies who will call it their home.”, KLIA by A satan incarnate, on Flickr

Very nice photos, I was just in KL a few weeks ago. I have always enjoyed Malaysia, one of my favorite countries of Asia.

You seem to have taken the last photo from an even taller tower !!

That's taken from KL tower

KL tower, situated atop Bukit Nanas (Nanas hill) at 94m above sea level, it is on higher ground than the Twin Towers of Kuala Lumpur. Menara Kuala Lumpur was constructed as a telecommunications tower to upgrade the quality of telecommunications and the clarity of broadcast transmissions. Undoubtedly, Menara Kuala Lumpur marks the start of a milestone in the telecommunications arena.

Note :
The KL Tower is the fifth tallest telecommunication tower in the world (after the CN Tower in Canada, the Ostankino Tower in Russia, the Oriental Pearl Tower in China, and the Borj-e Milad in Iran). Built to enhance the quality of telecommunication services and the clarity of broadcasting, KL Tower represents the symbol of Kuala Lumpur, the Garden City of Wondrous Lights.
