Realizing the need for the state of Perak to further stimulate the local economy in its aspiration towards creating a high income state, the State has identified Wilayah Perak Selatan as a new development area, and has bestowed the mandate to Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Perak as the implementing agency.
Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Perak is the key state agency entrusted to spearhead the economic development and socio-growth in the State of Perak. Its 5-year Strategic Blueprint highlights its development focus in three core areas; Township Development, Port & Logistic and Hospitality & Tourism, which are also applied in the development of WPS.
Since its inception in 1967, PKNP Group has delivered tangible results on its mandate to strengthen Perak’s economic and socio-economic growth. As the implementing agency of WPS, PKNP is empowered to make strategic decisions to support any investments which brings positive impact to WPS. PKNP works closely with the local authority also known as “pihak berkuasa tempatan” (PBT) to achieve optimum value that would benefit both the investors as well as its people.
PKNP was mandated with three clear objectives:
- Boost economic and socio-economic development of the state
- Accelerate industrial and commercial development in the state through a variety of investment portfolio, and
- Act as the catalyst for private investments
In performing its roles as a state agency, PKNP and its group of companies ensures that its initiatives are aligned with the objectives of the State Agenda, National Agenda and National Transformation Programme in bringing a holistic change and sustainable growth.
