Lembaran Johor Tengah means The Center of Johor; Kluang.
Kluang was founded in 1915 as the administrative capital for central Johor by the British. The main railway line linking north to south Malaya was built passing through Kluang and this helped in its growth. Roads were built to link Kluang to Johor Bahru towards the south-east, to Batu Pahat towards the south-west and to Mersing towards the north-east and it is located in the centre of the state and is within 90 minutes of all major urban areas of Johor.
Over the 20th century, Kluang’s economy transitioned from rubber to palm oil and now has some of Malaysia’s largest organic farms. The industrial sector has also grown significantly with multinational investment and a critical mass of tile manufacturers enabling the district to be called the ’tile capital of Malaysia’. The organic farming sector has also boosted Kluang as an ecotourism destination too.
With the effort of the new state and local government, they are currently promoting Kluang through the integrated tourism concept where they integrates the industrial, agriculture and also tourism as a part of their initiatives.
The initiatives was to;
1) Assist the local busineses in: Local farming and research, product development and research, corporate friendly policies, travel marketing assistance to domestic and foreign markets
