IPOH: “The world continues to recognize Ipoh, which is filled and surrounded by limestone hills.

“This makes the city unique and different from other cities in Malaysia,” said Ipoh Mayor, Datuk Rumaizi Baharin.

He said Ipoh has been declared a National Geo Park within the city area.

Ipoh is also known as the white coffee city through the Taste Atlas website as one of the popular coffee products among people worldwide.

It also ranked 10th in the list of ’39 Best Coffees in the World’ published on March 15.

Rumaizi said this while addressing 1,500 members of the Ipoh City Council (MBI) at the Special Assembly in conjunction with the 36th Ipoh City Day celebration.

Ipoh received city status on May 27, 1988, by the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Azlan Muhibbuddin Shah ibni Almarhum Yussuf Izzuddin Shah.

It is divided by the Kinta River into New Ipoh Town and Old Ipoh Town.

Meanwhile, Rumaizi said MBI has drafted a ten-year direction through the MBI Strategic Planning Plan 2021-2030, guided by the National Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Policy.

The implementation of the MBI Strategic Planning Plan 2021-2030 is guided by the vision to make ‘Ipoh a Smart Regional City Based on a Sustainable and Prosperous Ecosystem’.

To support this aspiration, MBI has set a mission to ‘Empower Urban Management, Inclusively Towards a Smart, Low Carbon, and Prosperous City by 2030’.

ThisĀ  plan is designed using the MINER concept, which stands for Man (M), Infrastructure (I), Nature (N), Economy (E), and Regulation (R), with the CERIA approach based on 5 Pillars, 22 Strategies, 88 Action Plans, and 221 Programs.
