GBS@Mahsuri expected to be completed by September


The office space in the new GBS@Mahsuri has been fully snapped up by tenants.

Penang Development Corporation (PDC) general manager Datuk Mohd Bazid Abdul Kahar said the construction works of the two-storey 80,000 sqft building would be completed in September this year.

“It was initially scheduled to complete in April. However, we were unable to complete it due to the movement control order (MCO).

“We are very happy that the lots are fully taken up by tenants. There is a demand for Global Business Services (GBS) in Penang.

“This project is another contribution by PDC towards industrial growth in the state,” he told Buletin Mutiara at GBS@Mahsuri in Bayan Baru today.

Penang Domestic and International Trade, Consumer Affairs and Entrepreneur Development Committee chairman Datuk Abdul Halim Hussain said that the state is known for its manufacturing industry.

“GBS is a growing sector in Penang. We are going to promote the sector and attract big companies to support our existing manufacturing industry,” he said.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said the GBS@Mahsuri facility was scheduled for operation in the last quarter of this year.

“This RM17.8 million building is an MSC Cyber Centre Tier One office space.

“Penang has always been strong in the electrical and electronics (E&E) cluster. The GBS is one of the sub-clusters that is gaining traction in the state.

“The sector is, principally, not only serving Malaysia but also Asia Pacific and the world,” he said.

Chow said investors looked at the availability of human talents besides business ecosystem and infrastructure.

“Those are what Penang can offer and provide investors. We will monitor the market situation and grow in tandem with the industry.

“We can provide the facilities to draw investors and to provide job opportunities to the rakyat,” Chow added.

Chow said that the management of PDC would study the market trend to see if there is a need for another GBS facility in other locations.

Also present were Bukit Tambun assemblyman Goh Choon Aik, Penang Island City Council (MBPP) mayor Datuk Yew Tung Seang and PDC deputy general manager Yeoh Lean Huat.
