The Chow Kon Yeow Way For Penang

"When the call for duty comes, you have to rise up to the occasion," says Chow Kon Yeow, the fifth Chief Minister for Penang.

Admitting that he tends to shy away from the limelight, Kon Yeow recognises the fact that as Chief Minister, it is time for him to be at the forefront.

In an exclusive interview with BFM, Kon Yeow gave us a glimpse into his low key personality.

Groomed for the top job by his predecessor, to what extent is Kon Yeow out of Lim Guan Eng's shadow?

We ask him this.

We also take a deep dive into the development plans at the Pearl of the Orient - is Penang overdeveloped or is development a necessary cost to incur? Kon Yeow shares updates on the Penang Transport Master Plan and the undersea tunnel.

We also discuss about rising competition in the region competing for top FDI (foreign direct investment) dollar as well as tourist and talent.

In 2016, Penang saw the exit of 2 large MNCs from Penang - Seagate and Western Digital. Is Penang starting to lose its shine as “the place” for FDIs in this region?

We ask the Chief Minister this and look into how the Island city is strategising to stay in the highly competitive game.

Listen in.
