Covering an area of nearly 14 square kilometers, almost half the size of Macau, it is planned to be a “city at sea,” consisting of four man-made islands.In 2014, when the reclamation began, the project stirred controversy. Some residents believed that the project would destroy the surrounding environment, while the Singaporean government conveyed its concern that the project lay too close to the border between the two countries, only 2 kilometers from Singapore.In January 2015, Country Garden Pacificview Sdn. Bhd. (CGPV), the developer of the Forest City project, announced that its environmental impact assessment report had gotten a nod from Malaysia.Yang Guoqiang said City Forest is only 2 kilometers from Singapore — a distance that can even be swum. Yang said, “Dubai built a city in the desert and we will build a Forest City in the Iskandar Development Region, with a Singaporean lifestyle and the economics of Malaysia.”Local politicians have suggested that despite the project getting approval, its implementation is still cause for concern. Malaysias government may ignore the environmental costs due to excessive economic development.  (For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Editor:Liang Jun,Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9027422;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.We RecommendChina has worlds largest high-speed rail network
