The East Coast Railway Line, ECRL would change the economic landscape and life of the people in Kelantan as well as all the states in the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, in various fields.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today said, the construction of the ECRL also proved that the government was sincere in fulfilling its promises to the people.
(Soundbite of Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak / Prime Minister
The project will become the catalyst of change. We have undertaken studies which show that the economic growth of the states in the east coast would be 1.5 per cent higher with this ECRL project. I’m confident that this will also address the concern of parents, particularly those whose children had to migrate to other states to look for jobs. With the existence of the project, there will be a reverse migration. This means that many outsiders and locals will remain in Kelantan because of this ECRL project.)
