SPECIAL REPORT The Malaysian Highway projects are the outcome of the privatisation agenda. Under the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) concept, the government awards concession contracts to highway companies, which in turn, build and operate the highways.

When the contract period ends, they will transfer the management of the highway back to the government.
