    It is going to be a very important meeting, possibly to finalise some details. I think it is likely to be centered around Iskandar collaboration. I hope Singapore is smart enough to win much more in the win-win partnership. At the moment, it is skewed towards Johor winning more.

    I think Malaysia's involvement in Singapore's developments is quite minimal (non-strategic). The swap in land parcels seems to a move more to pacify the Malaysians.

    Hopefully there will be some kind of media announcement by end of today.

    I am sure they are going to spend quiet a lot of time discussing how they are going to jointly manage the HSR and also how to quicken the immigration process between two countries.

    Hopefully they can come up with an integrated process where passenger will only need to stop once to clear immigration on both side

    If two govt can establish mou not to su ka su ka change policy for iskandar, it will be very helpful for investors to consider to invest more for long term perspective aside the railway project initiative.
