The training programme is designed to equip the officers with the skills and competencies required for key parts of the development cycle of industrial parks, including visioning, feasibility, and planning; estate management; marketing and investment promotion; and inter-agency coordination.
The programme is helmed by CIG’s resource expert, Mr Lim Chin Chong. Mr Lim was formerly from JTC Corporation in Singapore, and has extensive experience in physical infrastructure, land planning and industrial estate development.
