Klang Valley SEZ, Outdated 20th-Century Construct

Following the proposal for a Johor-Singapore Special Economic Zone, there has now been a proposal to transform the Greater Klang Valley into a special economic zone as well. The SEZ plan aims to reposition the region for larger investment inflows. Might its impact be marginal or momentous?  Dr Geoffrey Williams, Economist & Professor, Malaysia University of Science and Technology makes a case for the former.
