How It All Started


Established in 1967 under Enactment No. 3/1967, PKNP was mandated with the objectives below:


  • Boost economic and socio-economic development of the state
  • Accelerate industrial and commercial development in the state through a variety of investment portfolio, and
  • Act as the catalyst for private investments


The Agency was founded on four principles: to promote, to stimulate, to facilitate, and to undertake development initiative with the goal of bringing development to Perak.


This responsibility soon evolved and expanded to include long term strategic planning of resource utilisation, investments attraction, projects implementation, and value creation embracing all areas of economic and social growth in Perak.  PKNP Group will provide its support for the creation of a conducive environment for business and investment in the state.

Forging Forward


Being a leading state agency responsible in bringing development to the State of Perak, PKNP Group has recently undertaken a strategic definition exercise for the Group to reinforce its roles and redefine its direction forward.


As part of the organisation’s 5-year Strategic Blueprint, three (3) core businesses namely Property Development, Ports & Logistics as well as Hospitality & Tourism  are spearheading the development efforts in bringing economic and socio-economic impacts to the State of Perak.


Significant involvement of PKNP Group in property development, ports & logistics as well as hospitality & tourism is about to magnify with considerable progression in these core business areas including township development, logistics advancement as well as world class offerings of hospitality and tourism products and services.


The strategic direction and business planning of these new developments as key segments of the organisation’s core business areas are undeniably crucial to the overall business strategy and sustainability.  Vibrant and economically competitive development components such as an integrated township, exceptional tourist attractions, efficient connectivity and the right skills and community mix are key factors to fuel economic growth.  Supported by able and skilful human capital resources the organisation is geared towards bringing unparalleled impact to the State of Perak Darul Ridzuan.
