The Economic, Social & Administrative Centre That Offers So Much More!

In this district lies the Kinta Valley which is the richest tin valley in the world.  Although tin is not a  prominent industry as before, this valley retains its status as the hub of Perak, mainly due now to development of industry and tourism.  Inhabited by some 629,899 people, it is also the artery of economic and social growth and the administrative centre of the royal state of Perak.  Ipoh the capital city is situated within this district.

The robust economic growth brought about by tin mining and rubber industry, being the pillars of Malaysia's economy, has rendered this area with adequate infra-structure facilities - an ideal environment for business enterprise.  Consequently, it made it easier to build other facilities thus assuring the continued growth of the Kinta Valley as the premier growth area in Malaysia.  Ipoh city which has a population of 500,000 people is growing and it is testimony to its potential for growth.
