The strong buyer response to our launches justified our commitment to availing properties that are within reach to a growing population in Negeri Sembilan and Johor.
We believe that demand for affordable products would remain intact in FY2015, and intend to continue our momentum going forward. Hence, we target to launch new projects amounting to a gross development value of RM1 billion in Negeri Sembilan and Johor, which will stand us in good stead to deliver stronger growth in the years to come.”
