Designed to forge industrial partnerships with other parks in Malaysia creating a ready cluster, PHIP is set to be equipped with world-class facilities and infrastructure, efficient park management alongside impervious security control.

Complementing the heavy industries and the logistics hub is the new township of Bagan Datuk Water City, an immaculately planned township to cater to the demand of residential, commercial, recreational, educational and world-class tourism and hospitality facilities.
