Semiconductor hub in Bukit Beruntung to boost state GDP

Semiconductor hub in Bukit Beruntung to boost state GDP

03 May 2024

A semiconductor hub in Bukit Beruntung, Rawang, is set to boost the country’s gross domestic product to 30 per cent by 2028.

Menteri Besar Selangor (Incorporated) (MBI) chief executive officer Saipolyazan M. Yusop said the development of the green energy concept industrial area would be completed as soon as possible.

“This (hub) is a follow-up to the Prime Minister’s announcement on the construction of a design park for integrated circuits and semiconductor drives in Puchong. 

“It will be a semiconductor research centre and will make Bukit Beruntung an industrial hub. This development will bring profit and economic benefits to the local community,” said Saipolyazan.

He said this to the media at the MBI Hari Raya open house here yesterday.

In March, Selangor signed a Memorandum of Understanding with four firms — Phison Malaysia, SkyeChip, United Kingdom-based ARM Ltd and China-based Shenzhen Semiconductor Industry Association — for the development of the research centre.

The centre, which will be managed by the Selangor Information Technology and Digital Economy Corporation, has the capacity to generate economic returns of up to RM1 billion.

The development is expected to create jobs, especially in engineering, with monthly salaries of between RM5,000 and RM7,000.
