THE Finance Ministry has denied receiving proposals for development of two airports on mainland Penang, with Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng adding that the Finance and Transport ministries, along with the state governments of Penang and Kedah had received no such communication over the proposed development, which was reported by The Star today.

“To date, The Star report has only sowed confusion among the communications and transport industry because they (the paper) failed to disclose who had attended the briefing or accepted the recommendations,” he said in a statement today.
