Kedah Science & Technology Park (KSTP)

With a vision to be world class in the promotion and commercialisation of applied scientific research and technology, KSTP in Bukit Kayu Hitam is expected to encourage growth in the northern region and generate higher income for its people.

Bukit Kayu Hitam was selected as the location for the technology park due to its location. An 800 hectares area near Bukit Kayu Hitam Industrial Park has been earmarked for this purpose. There are two components to KSTP, which are the Global Research Centre and Modern Industrial Park, both of which are expected to boost research, development and world class commercialisation activities.

This project is expected to create more than 20,000 jobs once fully developed.

The project will be focusing on these (7) seven focus areas:

  • Agro-Science (Priority cluster)
  • Advanced Materials (Priority cluster)
  • Information and Communications Technology (ICT) (Priority cluster)
  • Halal Science
  • Component R&D and Manufacturing
  • Green Technology
