Mumbai: Malaysia is targeting at least five mega projects in India, special envoy to India and south Asia on infrastructure, Datuk Seri S Samy Vellu, said. The projects include the building of two highways, the expansion of a container port and construction of a new city centre, modelled after Kuala Lumpur City Centre.

''Since January, I have held meetings with both federal and state ministers and officials about infrastructure projects that Malaysian companies can undertake in India,'' he told reporters.

The special envoy is part of deputy prime minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin's, delegation to India. Muhyiddin arrived here last night for a five-day visit, which will include New Delhi and Chennai.

Samy Vellu said the container port expansion project in Chennai alone was worth RM10.5 billion and among the companies vying for it was MMC Corp Bhd.

He added Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd was interested in building a city centre, like KLCC, in Gujarat.

''A site between Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar has been identified for this,'' he said.
