Singapore: Eco World Development Group Berhad (EcoWorld Berhad) celebrates another milestone today with the opening of its first international EcoWorld Gallery @ Singapore.
Located on St Martin’s Drive, the EcoWorld Gallery @ Singapore will showcase EcoWorld’s projects in Malaysia and overseas.
Currently, the Group has 15 projects located in three key economic regions in Malaysia which are the Klang Valley, Iskandar Malaysia and Penang. Through its associates, EcoWorld will also be launching its first project in London by end of May and another in Sydney before the end of the year.
Tan Sri Liew Kee Sin, Chairman of EcoWorld Berhad said the Group was excited at the opportunity of having a presence in Singapore as EcoWorld had already established a strong footing in Iskandar Malaysia with three residential developments and three business parks.
“We are delighted to be able to grow the EcoWorld brand further in Singapore and hope that our presence here will make it more convenient for our customers and prospective buyers who would like to know more about EcoWorld,” added Liew.
President & CEO of EcoWorld Berhad, Dato’ Chang Khim Wah said that the establishment of EcoWorld Gallery @ Singapore was a natural choice considering the city state’s importance as a global economic and financial hub, its proximity to and close business ties with Malaysia.
“Our office location right off Singapore’s famed Orchard Road was carefully chosen to enable the Group to reach out to and better serve our customers who have bought or are interested in owning properties in London, Australia, Kuala Lumpur, Iskandar Malaysia, and Penang,” said Chang.
He added that since the launch of EcoWorld’s first project – Eco Botanic at Nusajaya, Iskandar Malaysia in 2013, the Group has amassed 5,245 acres of land in the central, southern and northern regions of Peninsula Malaysia.
“Within Iskandar Malaysia we have grown very quickly with the launch of two townships which are Eco Botanic and Eco Spring/Summer and a green business park called Eco Business Park 1,” shared Chang. He added that the Group will be launching another two new projects in Iskandar Malaysia which are Eco Tropics and Eco Business Park III, both located in the Pasir Gudang corridor. A third business park called Eco Business Park II in the Senai corridor is also being planned.
“We are privileged to have a significant number of Singaporean SMEs and MNCs looking to establish and expand their business within the region as our business park customers. Having our own dedicated EcoWorld office here in Singapore will enable us to better assist them with their expansion plans,” said Chang.
Chang explained that as a value-added service, the Group has a one stop solutions centre for its business park customers to help them with business set-ups, applications for incentive packages, business licensing, registrations as well as end-financing through the Groups’s panel bankers.
The opening of the EcoWorld Gallery @ Singapore was officiated by His Excellency Datoʼ Husni Zai Yaacob, High Commissioner of Malaysia to Singapore.
“I would like to congratulate EcoWorld on the opening of the EcoWorld Gallery @ Singapore and wish you every success. I see this venture as a step forward not only for EcoWorld but Malaysia to improve bilateral ties with our neighbour,” said Husni.
“On behalf of EcoWorld, I would like to extend my deepest appreciation to the Malaysian High Commission, officials from MIDA and MITI as well as our business associates and business chambers who have supported us tremendously in Singapore and Iskandar Malaysia.
“Through our new EcoWorld Gallery @ Singapore, we look forward to many more opportunities to work hand-in-hand with you to assist our customers in establishing highly productive investments which will both increase employment opportunities and add further to the significant economic vibrancy we mutually enjoy on both sides of the Causeway,” said Liew.
