According to the Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak in the 12th Invest Malaysia (IMKL2016), Malaysia is expected to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Singapore by the middle of 2016 for the development of a high-speed rail (HSR) linking both countries.
The development projects under the 11th Malaysia Plan would remain unaffected despite the Government has to revise its budget and cut spending in response to the drop in crude oil prices. Those projects include the HSR project linking Malaysia and Singapore, the Pan Borneo Highway linking Sarawak and Sabah, the MRT and LRT, as well as the Pengerang Integrated Petroleum Complex (PIPC) in Johor.
