Penang announces ‘carrots’ for SMEs

GEORGE TOWN, April 4 — The Penang government introduced a new incentive programme today for local small-medium enterprises (SME) in a bid to drive up investment in the state.

Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the Penang SME Centre will offer a 50-per cent discount for the rental of unfurnished units in the centre.

The discount is only for the first six months of tenancies signed between January 1 and June 30 this year.

“The incentive is only applicable for local companies and the eligible recipient is required to sign a three-year tenancy,” he said in his office in Komtar today.

He added that the state also offered other incentives to SMEs such as the free SME Market Advisory Resource and Training (SMART) Centre and a 150- acre SME Village.

Earlier, Lim witnessed the tenancy signing ceremony between Penang Development Corporation (PDC) and Togun Malaysia Sdn Bhd and Lleap Sdn Bhd.

Both companies took up lots in the Penang SME Centre.

“Both Togun and Lleap will be contributing to a combined investment value of about RM6 million and over 45 job opportunities,” Lim said.

Togun Malaysia produces hydrogen infused drinking water while Lleap is an IT company offering an e-Post system for single or large document volumes.

商家与槟中小企中心签租约 首半年回扣50%享津贴


槟州首长林冠英指出,从今年1月1日至6月30日,凡与槟州中小型企业中心签署租约的中小型企业,除了获得租金津贴外,也可在租用的首6个月,获得50%的回扣。

他强调,只要于该中心签署至少为期3年的合约就可享有上述优惠。

他说,这项优惠可说是全国仅有,而且租金更是全国最低。

他是于今天出席及见证槟州发展机构与一家氢化水公司及资讯工艺公司签署租赁合约时,如是表示。

他表示,这项优惠绝对物有所值,因为所有企业不但享有津贴式租金,所有单位都备有国际化的设备。

他提及,2家企业入驻槟州,将为槟州带来约600万令吉的投资基金,及超过45个就业机会。他也说,该中心目前已超过50%的租用率。
