Some of our corporate boys forget that people have ears. The other day, in Bangsar, a journalist happened to be drinking well within hearing range from some of the boys from Scomi.
They were happily talking about a revamp of the Kuala Lumpur public transport. Under the plan, they will manage and take care of bus and LRT mainenance. It seems, according to this journalist, Scomi is looking at the Singapore (pronounced as Sing-grr-pore) model, a totally card-based system.
Under Scomi's grand plan, the government will buy KL Monorail also. The same system will be used in Penang and JB in future phases.
Since the Singapore model is going to be used, Scomi is likely to have to ('have to' here does not suggest that it is being forced to do so) import expertise from the island.
In the spirit of the current state of bilateral intercourse, we will not rule out equity participation from Singapore parties, Temasik included.
Perhaps our government should look at giving incentives to encourage more Singaporean investors to pump in their hard and strong currency into our system?
