The success of Singapore’s Housing & Development Board (HDB) to provide public housing for 80 per cent of its citizens has motivated the Local Government Development Ministry to consult its experts as well as other foreign experts in its effort to build more affordable homes in Malaysia.

The ministry, in a statement, last week said: “The ministry will examine case studies for best practices on housing policies in other countries including neighbouring countries such as Singapore that have shown success in providing the public with affordable housing.

“This will allow the new National Housing Policy to take into account the various needs of the people according to their culture, customs, religions and scenarios of the multi-racial society in the country.

“We will also hold a knowledge-sharing session with housing experts from Singapore to discuss affordable housing management.

“This is to strengthen the country’s housing development strategy based on the six core values of Madani, namely kemampanan (sustainability), kesejahteraan (prosperity), dayacipta (innovation), hormat (respect), keyakinan (trust) and ihsan (compassion),” it said.

Local Government Development Minister Nga Kor Ming had earlier said the Singaporean government had given its nod for HDB flat contractors to visit his ministry next month to share their knowledge on building affordable homes in Malaysia.

Penang hopes infrastructure projects will be approved under Budget 2023

For illustration only

Penang hopes that the federal government will approve the infrastructure projects which will make a positive impact on the state and the northern region in the re-tabling of the 2023 Budget on Feb 24.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said these included the Light Rail Transit (LRT) project for the George Town-Butterworth line which was submitted to the federal government at the end of last year.

“We hope that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will appreciate Penang’s contribution. In addition, several state and federal agencies including the Northern Corridor Implementation Authority (NCIA) have also submitted projects for consideration.

All these should be looked into in terms of not only benefitting Penang alone but also in driving development to the entire northern region through the implementation of such projects,” he told reporters after attending the Kadun Padang Kota Open House here today.

Elaborating, he said among the priority projects that have been submitted by the NCIA were the new expressway and the elevated highway from Juru to Sungai Dua. These two projects must be given priority as a solution to the increasing and alarming traffic congestion that is happening now, he said.

“Perhaps not all the projects will be approved but the state government hopes that priority will be given to projects that will be beneficial to the northern region and Penang,” he said.
