Finally it has been confirmed that Johor have not received any investment from Singapore in Iskandar Malaysia.

Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman at the State Assembly when replying to question by Dr Sheikh Ibrahim (PAS Sg. Abong) said that Johor had received several investment from foreign countries including the Middle East. However, the state “have not received any form of investment from our neighbouring country (Singapore). (see Star July, 1)

I am the least bit surprised.

When small minded politician with a myopic view regularly ups the ante with jingoistic statements that Iskandar Malaysia will meet the same fate as Pedra Branca and send the message that Singapore’s investment is unwelcome, we must realise that Singaporeans in the circumstances will not be foolish or desperate enough to invest good money in Iskandar Malaysia. Period.
