Ranked at 26th of the richest people in Malaysia by Forbes, Tan Sri Lim Kang Hoo is one of the significant people who turned Johor into an international destination. He is widely regarded to be one of the recent additions to the Forbes list through his associated with Iskandar Waterfront Holdings.

Iskandar Malaysia has been one of the most exciting projects in the region since it was launched. It is one of the fastest growing townships not only locally but internationally as well. Because of this, it has attracted a myriad of international names in entertainment, education and medicine to its shore. This includes the likes of Reading University UK, University of Southampton and the Legoland Theme Park.

There are more than 4,000 acres of land in Iskandar which has since attracted the interests of renowned figures like Tan Sri Jeffrey Cheah and Tan Sri Robert Kuok, among others.
