A dialogue session with state-based industry players discussed several efforts, including incentives, potential sectors and areas that could be offered the opportunity to conduct their business and operations in the JS-SEZ.

The menteri besar is committed to replicating the Shenzhen-Hong Kong SEZ achievements in the state.

"To achieve Shenzhen's success in becoming a thriving SEZ, all industry players must share the same agenda within a broader framework.

"We must ensure it is beneficial to the people, too, enjoys economic growth, while creating job opportunities," he added.

The discussion was attended by state executive council members, Iskandar Regional Development Authority and Malaysian Investment Development Authority representatives, among others.
