Malaysia Tries to Lure World-Class Institutes

December 19, 2010

At the southern tip of the Malaysian peninsula, just across a strait from Singapore and in the middle of a new metropolis rising from the flat, green landscape, workers are constructing what officials hope will be a hub for higher education. The project, EduCity@Iskandar, is part of the Iskandar Malaysia development zone, a large government undertaking announced in 2006 to increase investment in the country. The entire development zone is scheduled to be completed in 2025 and will include a large manufacturing area, new financial and civic districts, a medical village, amusement parks and residential housing.
