S'gor gov't wants to build mega-business park on a forest reserve
The park will be developed by state-owned Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS), says the Selangor MB.A - The Selangor government itself is the developer for the real estate project that will require the Kuala Langat (North) Forest Reserve being bulldozed. Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari revealed yesterday that his administration wants the forest to make way for the Selangor Business Capital project, which will be developed by state-owned real estate company Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS). This project was first announced by Amirudin in his speech on Budget 2020 for Selangor on Nov 1 last year. At the time, he did not reveal that the project would require a forest reserve to be sacrificed. Kuala Langat (North) Forest Reserve measures at 958ha. According to the notice calling for public objections to the degazettement, the state government wants to excise 97 percent of the reserve, leaving just a tiny strip to the south.

"Among the advantages of the Selangor Business Capital is that is its strategic location. It is located near Cyberjaya, Putrajaya and the airports. "It would include world-class convention centres, five-star hotels, shopping centres, office and commercial space, homes and other support facilities," said Amirudin in his budget speech. Global tech giants Tencent Holdings and Huawei were mentioned as"potential investors" in the project, according to the November 2019 issue of Selangor government's newsletter the Selangor Journal Read more: malaysiakini.com
