Sepang: The Mitsui Outlet Park Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) will become the Southeast Asia’s biggest outlet mall by 2021 after phase three expansion is completed.
Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd chairman Tan Sri Wan Abdul Aziz Wan Abdullah said the second phase expansion, which is set to be completed in 2018, would see the mall hosting 190 shops from the 130 at present, Bernama reported today.
