“The construction industry in Malaysia was affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. However, we are optimistic on the recovery of construction industry with more projects resuming after the movement control order in Malaysia was lifted. Our order book shall keep us busy for the near term and contribute to the Haily group of companies’ earnings and net assets for the financial years ending Dec 31, 2022 and Dec 31, 2023.”

Haily Construction had also, on Nov 2, accepted an award for a residential housing project by Gunung Impian Development Sdn Bhd located in Tebrau, Johor worth RM27.21 million.
“The recent success that we’ve had is due to our experience in the construction industry and capabilities as a Grade G7 contractor registered with the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB). This is also in line with the group’s plans for its listing, which is to focus on our core competency in the construction of residential and non-residential buildings in Johor, and extend our reach to other districts,” he added.
