8/5/2009 — BERNAMA
Kelantan Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat said today he was most thankful to Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak for the “extraordinary reception” he was accorded by the prime minister during his visit to the East Coast Economic Region Special Economic Zone (ECER SEZ) yesterday.
He said the unprecedented reception by the prime minister was most heart-warming.
Nik Aziz said he was taken care of well and shown around the “corridor of power” for foreign investors.
“It was just great,” he told reporters after welcoming 50 people from Kelantan headed for a visit to an oil platform located 170km offshore Tumpat.
Nik Aziz was asked for his comments on the launch of the country’s first SEZ in Pekan, Pahang, yesterday by Najib. The SEZ is expected to generate investments of RM90 billion by 2020 and create 220,000 new jobs.
