CHINA OFFERS AIR DEFENCE SYSTEM TO MALAYSIA TO DETECT "TERRORISTS"

Ties between Singapore and Malaysia are set to become testy as China attempts to drive a wedge between the 2 neighbors with its actions in trade and defence. According to The Malaysian Insight, China has promised loans for the RM55 billion East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) that would link Port Klang to Kuantan and provide a rail bridge for goods from the Strait of Malacca to the South China Sea, effectively bypassing Singapore's busy sea port.

MALAYSIA BUILDING MASSIVE PORT, RIVALING SG TUAS PORT PLANS

The chairman of the authority that oversees Port Klang, Kong Cho Ha said that the massive port industrial city planed for Malaysia's Carey Island will not be a threat to Singapore's port.

Singapore is also building its own new terminal in Tuas, which is slated to be even bigger than the one that Malaysia has planned. Kong said that the Malaysia port will be complement to Singapore's Tuas one, not a direct competitor.

But maybe the timing of the building of the new ports are on purpose. Would this be the next issue that Malaysia and Singapore will go head to head in? We already have the VEP challenge, maybe next the Big New Port challenge coming our way?
