Penang is embarking on a key strategic initiative to develop the new Penang South Islands (PSI) as an economic driver for the future of Penang. It will incorporate smart city and smart park features while remaining as an international destination for investment, industrial manufacturing and tourism. As an integrated development, the PSI will be a development that emphasises the economic, environmental and social aspects, aligned with the Penang 2030 Vision as a ‘people-focused and inclusive’ project.
