The Melaka Gateway is a $10-billion-dollar development that includes the construction of residential, retail, office, entertainment, and port facilities on three man-made islands off the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It is one Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) project that, for the time being at least, appears to have survived the new government’s sweeping infrastructure review (others were put on hold indefinitely over inflated costs). However, the government has reserved the right to tweak the project “so that it does not stray from its original objective of promoting tourism.”
