To be developed in two phases in an area spanning 1,244 acres, KRC is one of the Federal Government’s national strategic projects implemented via NCIA with the aim of making it a leader in the development of Malaysia’s rubber industry, as well as a global hub for high-value rubber industry.
Phase 1 of KRC development has already been completed and the industrial park is now ready to welcome the arrival of investors. Following the remarkable progress of KRC Phase 1, Phase 2 of the project is scheduled to commence in 2023.
KRC is expected to boost the income of rubber smallholders in Kedah by ensuring continuous and sustainable demand for their natural rubber, as well as stabilising rubber prices by optimising rubber usage through the production of value-added downstream products. Response towards KRC has been encouraging to-date, as it has already attracted some RM4 billion worth of committed investment that will create 7,000 new job opportunities. In fact, KRC is already on track to meet its RM10 billion private investment target by 2025, five years earlier than the original target of 2030. The investment will create around 15,000 job opportunities for the locals, not only in Padang Terap but also Kedah in general.
