Sun is the first company to sign up for space on what promises to be the most advanced technology park in the world. Malaysia is establishing a 'Multimedia Super Corridor', which is critical to its strategy to shift its economy from manufacturing to hi-tech industries.
Sun will open its unit before the end of the year, to serve as a development and marketing centre for Java applications. Sun already has Java units in the US, Japan, Taiwan and Singapore and sees the Far East as a key area for developing and selling Java products.
The Multimedia Super Corridor will be 50 kilometres long, stretching from Kuala Lumpur city centre to a brand new airport, which will open in 1998. The corridor will offer buildings with a state-of-the-art broadband telecomms infrastructure and also encompasses a new administrative capital, Putrajaya, which will be the centre of Malaysia's government and business life from its completion in 2005. Next to Putrajaya will be an IT City that should be finished in 1999.
