by KT Leong

Perak Academy is pleased to present the topic of “Reconsidering the World Heritage Potential for Kinta Valley Post-Industrial Mining Landscape, Malaysia”

This topic, which will be presented by Dr. Suriati Ahmad, discuss the fact that the distinct landscape of the Kinta Valley is undeniably unique in its capacity in narrating significant phases and processes in Peninsular Malaysia’s history and culture. While tin mining brought about massive development to the Valley’s landscape, evidenced in the making of modern Kinta and Kampar Districts today, and Malaysia generally, this study focuses on the potential of Kinta Valley as a World Heritage Listed mining cultural landscape.

The rich cultural tapestry that is evident today across the Valley’s mining lands provides a significant living platform to understanding and appreciating the diversity of Malaysia’s cultural landscapes and, offering a new perspective about industrial heritage values to Malaysia’s domestic and international tourism catchments.
