Teng also added that as much as 7 percent is still in the planning, factory development and in the installation of machines and tools stage. Ensuring these investment are well addressed and approved projects proceed without any interuptions, Teng said that the State Government through Invest Selangor holds regular discussions and follow -up actions with to help resolve any issues that arise. Selangor is the largest state with manufacturing industries, the established infrastructure with connectivity and ports draws investors naturally. However, with competion rising from regional peers like Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand- Malaysia is always upping the ante to be constantly competitive by providing added incentives to these large investors. To ensure investors have their investment protected, any company that receives manufacturing project approval from Mida must obtain a No-Objection Letter from the State Government.
