MEDIA STATEMENT BY THE CHIEF MINISTER OF PENANG YAB TUAN CHOW KON YEOW IN KOMTAR, GEORGE TOWN, PENANG ON THE 10th OF JUNE 2019:

The Penang State Government welcomes any proposal to develop a new airport in the State or the region. However, the State is unaware of the two new airport proposals as reported in The Star today.

The Penang State Government will be going ahead with our plan to commission a study on the future needs of airport in the State and surrounding regions.

Meanwhile, the Penang State Government will wait for the proposals to be presented and provide our feedback thereafter.

The Penang State Government wants to reiterate our earlier position that any new airport proposal must not jeopardise the role and function of the Penang International Airport and the future development of the State.

The economy of Penang and its people must benefit from any such proposals.

CHOW KON YEOW

槟州政府欢迎任何在州内或区域内开发新机场的提案。然而,州政府对《星报》今日有关2份新机场提案的报道并不知情。

槟州政府将继续原定计划,委托有关方面研究槟州及周边地区未来对机场的需求。

与此同时,槟州政府将等待有关提案被提交给我们后,再作回应。

槟州政府在此重申我们早前的立场,即任何新的机场提案不得危及槟城国际机场的角色和功能,以及槟州未来的发展。

任何此类提案需有利于槟州经济和人民。
