BOUSTEAD Projects has entered into a joint-venture (JV) agreement with Malaysian-listed Malaysia Airports Holdings for the incorporation of a JV company to undertake the development of an aerospace and high-tech park within the Subang Aerotech Park in Subang, Malaysia.

Through the JV, their respective subsidiaries - BP Aerotech (Subang) and Malaysia Airports (Subang) - will hold 70 per cent and 30 per cent of the equity interest in the JV company BPMA Subang.

The initial paid-up capital in BPMA Subang will be RM10 (S$3) contributed by BP Aerotech and MA Subang in proportion to their respective shareholdings.
