Reshape regional strategies to navigate global uncertainties

The COVID-19 crisis triggered one of the worst peacetime recessions globally. Even as several economies tread the path to recovery, the surge in COVID-19 cases and emergence of new variants, coupled with geopolitical tensions, will continue to cloud the global outlook.  The Global Risk report uses GlobalData’s proprietary Country Risk Index to determine the existing and future level of global risk by assessing over 50 key indicators, including:

Known to be the second of three mass rapid transit (MRT) systems, the MRT Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) line includes 37 stations, of which 26 are elevated and 11 are underground stations.

Construction of the line, which is being developed by mass rapid transit (MRT), is scheduled to begin this year, with operations expected to start by 2022.

Designed to operate trains at speeds of 100km per hour, the new line aims to provide an end-to-end journey in 85 minutes.

"The services we are delivering under our commission will reinforce budget confidence throughout the eight-year construction period."

Under the government’s initiative to ease road traffic congestion, contribute to a cleaner environment and boost the economy, as well as raise living standards, the line expects to serve a population of two million with an estimated 533,000 passengers using the system daily.

Turner & Townsend Asia infrastructure head Rodney Moulder said: "Our strong experience on complex infrastructure projects, including Singapore-Kuala Lumpur High Speed Rail, was a key factor on our selection.

"The services we are delivering under our commission will reinforce budget confidence throughout the eight-year construction period."

It is reported that the SSP Line, along with its two other lines, will extend the MRT network to 150km by 2020.

The first phase of the SSP Line, covering Sungai Buloh to Kampung Batu, is expected to be completed by 2021 and the second phase of the line, spanning between Kampung Batu and Putrajaya, will be completed by 2022.
