The declaration of Ipoh as a safe city has certainly boosted the city as an artistically and historically rich capital of Perak.
The ‘Light and Sound’ project in Padang Ipoh proposed by the state government will be the first joint effort between the Northern Corridor Implementation Authority (NCIA) and the Ipoh City Council (MBI).
“We hope that this project will be completed by the end of this year. Discussions on the project are now in the final stage. It’ll be fully managed by NCIA without any interference from other parties,” said Tan Kar Hing, Executive Councillor for Tourism, Arts and Culture after launching the Safe City Programme and International Design Fest 2019 on Sunday, June 16 at Ipoh Padang.
Present were Ungku Omar Polytechnic (PUO) director Haji Zairon Mustapha, MBI Secretary Mohd Zakuan and over 300 attendees including students from PUO and Prince of Songkla University, Thailand.
