There were strong reports tracking the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high-speed rail (HSR) project yesterday with regards to Berjaya Land (BJLAND, 4219, main board consumer stocks), which is headed by Johor Princess Tunku Tun Aminah Sultan Ibrahim Ismail, is cooperating with Ipoh Engineering (IJM, 3336, main board construction stocks), MRCB (1651), main board industry stocks) and Malayan Railways Berhad (KTMB) jointly in a bid.
