Malaysia Discussing Possible Port Klang Expansion with China

March 2019

Malaysia and China are discussing the possibility of port expansion plans according to the Transport Minister of Malaysia. The government had identified Port Klang as its focus for expansion, given its status as the primary port of the country. The port had two operators, Westports Holdings Bhd and Northport (M) Bhd

The government has talked about expanding Port Klang for some time. It recently gave Westport the green light to expand. 

The previous Barisan Nasional administration had initially planned a third port on nearby Carey Island, as part of an USD 34 billion industrial hub project. In July 2018, the new Pakatan Harapan administration said that it would carry out a feasibility study on the proposed Carey Island port project
