NILAI, Sept 26 (Bernama) -- Nilai 3 Wholesale Centre Sdn Bhd has invested some RM100 million for its new tourist centre project as a value added attraction to the existing trade centre.

Its managing director Wong Ah San said that the new centre would be equipped with 113 handicraft outlets and complement the products sold in Nilai 3 Wholesale Centre.

'We are working at getting handicraft products from producers all over Negeri Sembilan. We also welcome products from other states. The project will start this December and will be completed and commence operations in June next year,' he told Bernama here.

Wong said that replicas of world renowned buildings such as the Great Wall of China would also be constructed as part of the initiatives to attract tourists.

He expects Nilai 3 to not only become a Wholesale Centre but also a tourist attraction as Nilai is only 20 minutes drive from the KL International Airport (KLIA).

'Nilai 3 could be a place where tourists on transit could stop for a while and shop before going to their next destination, he said.

He also said that branded outlets would be developed for buyers from the higher income group, which would be ready in the middle of next year.

Wong said that Nilai 3 Wholesale Centre recorded 60,000 to 80,000 visitors on a single Sunday or public holiday and expected the figures to double after all the projects are completed.

The Wholesale Centre, comprising 400 shops, recorded RM10 million turnover per month, he added.

Nilai 3 is located on a 16.2ha land, of which some 8.8ha had been developed.
