A land area of 180 acres has been allocated to UMP to be developed into Pahang Bio Aromatics Park, a project to be jointly carried out with ECERDC and Biotech Corporation.
A MoU was signed on December 16, 2013 in Putrajaya and was witnessed by Prime Minister of Malaysia. The project reflects UMP's dedicated commitment to the federal government and Malaysia. As such, a structured and organised development plan was mobilised to ensure that Pahang Bio Aromatics Park was developed in line with the government's aspirations.
The Luit land development project is a comprehensive one. It does not only involve the planting of patchouli herb but will also involve plans to set up a research and administration centre, a recreational centre, a breeding centre, a research laboratory, a pilot plant and an incubator centre. As such, it is essential to identify staffs who are really interested in the related areas and those with the right agronomy and horticulture background.
Preliminary development plan of Pahang Bio Aromatics Park was worked out to ensure that the natural characteristics of the topsoil and natural landscape are preserved. Staffs selected for the project consisted of researchers and experts of various backgrounds who will be directly and indirectly involved in making the park a success.
