(The Star) EPF: No plans on Bandar Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR: The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) has yet to decide whether to invest in the Bandar Malaysia project, said its chief executive officer Datuk Shahril Ridza Ridzuan.

“No one has approached us yet, and we have not seen any plans for the development thus far,” he told reporters after delivering his closing remarks at the International Social Security Conference 2017 here yesterday.

He was asked whether the provident fund was open for any joint-venture partnership on the mega property development project.

Shahril said EPF would continue to invest in local infrastructure projects as they came under its core investment segment. “We have always been the biggest supporter of the government's spending for infrastructure projects,” he said, adding that the fund was the single largest lender for infrastructure projects such as power plants, highways and the Mass Rapid Transit. — Bernama
