Kulim is a town in the state of Kedah, Malaysia. It is located on the southeast of Kedah, bordering Penang on the west. Kulim evolved from a small settlement in the 1950's to a successful city which is the focus of many industrial complexes. Kulim is a district consisting of 15 smaller sub-districts also known as "mukim".

In 1996, the Kulim Hi-Tech Park (KHTP) was officially opened as the first and fully integrated high technology industrial park in Malaysia. With the development of phase two of the MSC connecting Georgetown, Bertam and KHTP, potentials of development as the science and cyber city would spur on the development of other downstream industries in Kulim.
The Park comprises a total land area of approximately 14.5 square kilometres (5.6 mi²). Many local and foreign companies, such as Intel, Fuji Electric, Infineon, Showa Denko, First Solar, Gazzo Food, Entegris, Celestica and SilTerra have moved to the site since then.[9] It is strategically located nearby North-Butterworth Container Terminal (NBCT) and Bayan Lepas International Airport. According to the Ninth Malaysia Plan, this economic area is referred to as the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER). The Northern Corridor Economic Region is one of three development regions formed in Peninsular Malaysia, other development regions being the Iskandar Malaysia (or South Johor Economic Region) and the East Coast Development Region.
