Corridors of Development

TO facilitate the even development of Malaysia, the country has been divided up into separate economic regions or development corridors. Each has its own agency that plans and initiates its growth.

The separate regions were conceptualised with the objectives of narrowing the gap between the socioeconomic levels in the nation as well as the disparities in the development between states.

There is vast potential for investment in these regions, and their development will contribute to the economic development of the nation.

Indah Water Konsortium (IWK) - Towards a Green, Sustainable Environment

HISTORICALLY, the development of sewerage services in Malaysia was mainly driven by local authorities to meet the basic sanitation needs of the public.

With the federalisation of sewerage services in 1994, Indah Water Konsortium (IWK) together with the governing agencies had overseen the realization of modern and efficient sewerage treatment system in Malaysia for the past 16 years.

With almost 100 per cent sanitation coverage nationwide to date, Malaysia is considered by our regional counterparts as a success model.

Modern mechanised treatment technologies predominates most of our urban landscape, which ensures that sewage is treated before the effluent is released back into our receiving water bodies.

These systems not only safeguard public health but also provide a green and healthy environment. The modern systems we enjoy today have evolved through scientific research and technological development.

The continual improvement and modernisation of municipal sanitation services have led to the present day sewerage network and mechanised as well as automated treatment systems.

Your Natural Vitamin Supplements

WHEN most people think of vitamins they think of a pill, or several pills, as their source. If you ask about the "natural" source of specific vitamins you would probably hear that you can find vitamin C in an orange or vitamin D from the sun.

To refresh our memories, or perhaps to learn this for the first time, let's take a look at the basic vitamins, what they do for us and where, they can be found in nature.
