The powerful potential of Port Klang
"There's nothing really special about Port Klang. The port only handIes half of Malaysia's comainerlsed cargo and remains largely a destination for those who have dealings with imports, exports and all matters related to maritime trade and the shipping industry. It is definitely not a popular tourist destination and in a nutshell, it is a dull, wealthy place to be in. Yet Port Klang has the potential to become a port ci~
Currently, there are no waterfronts or social activities or attractions to lure tourists to make a trip to the port.To sttm it up, Port Klang needs a vibrant waterfront. Hence plans to build a tourism project called Harbour City was expected to take between 10 years and 15 years to complete and will cost RM1.5 billion. This project features a passenger
terminal, shops, a hotel, a marina, an ofllce tower and chalets, yet the project has not taken off.
Nonetheless, promoting Port Klang as a halal hub might make it as an ideal place for investments. Backed with Port Klang's rich history, the future port city has great potential in the tourism industry.
