1. The Housing and Local Government Ministry (KPKT) will discuss with the state governments on the redevelopment of housing, especially flats which are more than 30 years old.


2. Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin went to China for a working visit with the Prime Minister to look for investments for affordable homes.

Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin of KPKT said the requirement to check or redevelop old houses is included in the National Housing Policy.

“In the case of the Taman Keramat Permai apartments, these are under the Selangor state government. The KPKT will monitor the aspects that can be helped. I will visit the location tomorrow as I have just returned from China today,” she told reporters when asked to comment on the incident when 222 residents of 40 units in Block F of Pangsapuri Taman Keramat Permai in Kuala Lumpur were relocated recently.

This was after cracks found in the apartment structure reportedly became worse and the block seemed to be tilted to one side.

Zuraida spoke to reporters after the closing ceremony of the Kampung Baru Village Community Management Council Empowerment Convention (MPKK) at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre yesterday.

In the same press conference, Zuraida — who had just returned from a working visit with Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in China — said it was part of the visit to look for investments for affordable homes.

“While in China, I saw development in fishermen areas, ports and small industries in villages. I will look at similar developments in Malaysia,” she said.

The convention was the first to be held and was attended by 800 MPKK chairmen and secretaries of Chinese villages throughout the country.
