PKNS plans to set up Astronaut City in Bernam Jaya

KUALA LUMPUR: The Selangor Economic Development Corp (PKNS) plans to set up an "Astronaut City" in Bernam Jaya, Northern Selangor, says its Chief Executive Officer Omar Othman. "However, it is still in the preliminary stage. We are just talking about it. There is nothing concrete yet," he told Bernama here today.

Ohman said PKNS was organising an "Astronaut Congress" to be held at the Shah Alam Convention Centre on October 8. "We are trying to schedule a visit by the astronauts to our Selangor Science Park, which is also the Solar City to exchange ideas," he said after a visit by national astronaut Datuk Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor to PKNS's exhibition booth at the Global Finance Conference here today.

Themed, "Dawn of the New Decade: Alternative Investments in Asia", the two-day conference, organised by the International Herald Tribune and the London Speakers Bureau, ended today.

PKNS, the investment arm of the Selangor state government, is the only exhibitor displaying multi-billion ringgit high-profile properties to attract potential international investors.

Malaysia's first Solar City, located in Selangor Science Park 2, is an integrated urban mixed redevelopment with high-tech industrial, commercial residential and recreational components.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Muszaphar said "we are impressed with the world class infrastructure that PKNS has put in place in the Solar city". "We are bringing 100 astronauts from all over the world to visit Solar City namely from the United States, Iran, India. "Probably, we can promote space science as the Solar City has a lot of opportunities and potential," he added.
