The Pahang office of the East Coast Economic Region Development Council (ECERDC), which is now operational, will help facilitate the progress of ECER projects.
In a statement here today, the East Coast Economic Region (ECER) secretariat said the office in Kuantan would also monitor related state-wide projects as well as provide information on ECER’s core fundamentals and strategies to the residents in Pahang.
"The office will provide a greater presence in Pahang for the council and will go a long way to promote ECER projects," said ECERDC chief executive, Datuk Jebasingam Issace John.
He said under the 9th Malaysia Plan, 45 projects had been identified under the ECER for implementation in Pahang, of which 32 were exclusive for the state, while the balance 13 were cross-border projects involving other neighbouring states.
"In 2008, work on 24 projects has begun while 11 more will start by mid-year, another seven before year-end and the final three will commence next year," he said. -- BERNAMA
