Second Finance Minister Dato’ Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah dropped by the Ipoh City Council recently. He visited the environmental, health, town planning and engineering departments to “see things” for himself. This was in conjunction with his executive talk to officers of the Council which followed soon after.
Husni was glad to note the progress of the Ipoh City Council thus far. He praised the Council for the prompt completion of the Perak Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) in downtown Ipoh. The deadline given was seven weeks but it was completed in six.
MBI is now the second largest city council in terms of development planning applications from investors, after DBKL. It has replaced Penang from the number two spot.
“Thus, Ipoh has the potential to be even more developed and vibrant,” said Husni to reporters.
