As land scarcity is an issue of concern in Penang, especially on the island, the state government hopes the Penang South Reclamation will come to fruition.

The massive plan off the southern coast of Penang island will see the size of 3,600 football fields being reclaimed for mixed development projects.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow says the three man-islands will become a green and smart city creating jobs opportunities housing and social amenities for the future generation.
