Earlier today, Lee officiated the groundbreaking ceremony for Ferrotec Power Semiconductor Malaysia Sdn Bhd’s 60,000 sq ft manufacturing facility in Pasir Gudang.

He said the facility, with an investment of RM520 million, is expected to provide 460 high-skilled job opportunities for Johoreans when it is completed in 4Q 2024.
