Penang is embarking on a key strategic initiative to develop the new Penang South Islands (PSI) as an economic driver for the future of Penang. The PSI will provide a transformation of Penang’s growth engines and prepare the state for Industry 4.0. It will incorporate smart city and smart park features while remaining as an international destination for investment, industrial manufacturing and tourism. As an integrated development, the PSI will be a sustainable development that emphasises the economic, environmental and social aspects, aligned with the Penang 2030 Vision as a ‘people-focused and inclusive’ project.
The State Government of Penang invites the Registration of Interest (ROI) from outstanding Malaysian and world leading architects and planners to participate in the Masterplan Design Competition (MDC).
