was there last year and it's sooooo empty... like a deserted disneyland. it's all a bit kitsch. and the sad thing is that it was built in the context of the 2020 goals of malaysia (to be a first world country by 2020) but come on you don't achieve that by building a big disneyland for your government while a large part of the population is still living in slums... big waste of money... a pity.

Govt Aims For Zero Hardcore Poor In 2010, Says Abdullah
June 09, 2006 19:20 PM

PITAS (Sabah), June 9 (Bernama) -- Undaunted by harsh criticisms levelled at him by his predecessor Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said Friday his administration would eradicate abject poverty by 2010.

"We will work harder to improve the economy and make sure there is no more hard-core poor in our land by 2010," he said when launching a Sabah Rubber Industry Board estate project in West Bengkoka, near here.

The 10,000ha estate, estimated to cost RM100 million, will be funded by the federal government under the Ninth Malaysia Plan.

The people in West Bengkoka are among the poorest in Malaysia. At least 2,230 of them are listed as hard-core poor.

(Malaysia's poverty rate is below 10 per cent, one of the world's lowest).

Abdullah said the government was committed to bring socio-economic development to rural areas as part of efforts to reduce abject poverty in the country.

"Among the poverty-elimination approaches adopted by the government is developing rubber estate projects in rural areas," he added.

He said the commodity could bring high returns to smallholders as both rubber latex and rubberwood have high commercial value.

(At the current market price, smallholders can earn up to RM4,000 a month, according to Rubber Industry Board Malaysia).

"Previously, only rubber latex has commercial value but today rubberwood is being used to make furniture and sold at good prices.

"Thanks to research and development initiatives, we are now able to come up with various rubber products from processed latex and rubberwood," he said.

Abdullah advised smallholders in West Bengkoka Estate to work as a team to ensure the rubber estate project would be a success.

"There must be cooperation and determination among you (smallholders) to make sure this project is successful.

"All I want is to see your standard of living improving after this rubber estate project is implemented. I want to see the people of Bengkoka getting out of the poverty trap."

Abdullah said the first phase of the project involving 2,000ha would be developed in the next four years. The project will be developed in five stages until 2030.

let me ask u one question: how often do u go there??

we have slum areas BUT large part of the population DOES NOT live in slums!
if u are refering to the 'kampung (traditional houses/villages)' areas as slums, then u are totally wrong and being misled.

I simply love the Sultan of Selangor's "Haunted Mansion". Even my dad commented about it.

I know its insensitive or maybe even mean to say this but i think putrajaya is such a great place... but then when u get back to KL, u see once again the realities of being in a country like malaysia. I'm not trying to offend anybody, just trying to state my thoughts. Maybe i'm expecting too much... la-di-da

dude, don't be quick to pass on judgements...and if you do, throw in some facts and figures and make a sound 'impression' based on what you know and not by what you 'see' or 'heard'..Malaysia has come a long way and Putrajaya is not just a grandiose scheme that is a waste of money...give it some time to mature..and by the time KL bursts off the seams...Putrajaya would be ready to catch the spill and accelerate growth at ease...and affordable and by that time would have created a helthy living, modern and self contained city. Malaysia's vision is to look forward and plan ahead and spread growth to the outskirts...and as in the case of Putrajaya...out in nowhere, but look now...sattelite cities and sprouting all over from the 'rural' site of KLIA all the way to KL...
Just by looking at KL itself...what do you see? yea tall modern buildings and GREENS...KL and cities in Malaysia do not aspire to be the next Hong Kong of asia..the cities are just happy to be modern and humble and most importantly...lotsa 'healthy' pockets of greens...and not heavilly populated...space to breath and enjoy the good life.
YES I am a proud Malaysian who has been living in the states for most of life...and YES America is my country but Malaysia is my home. I'm proud to be both american and malaysian!
as far as slums are concerned....you find it everywhere in developing nations, even here in America...at least you won't find people living in boxes and under flyways in KL or any other cities in Malaysia...and on that note...I pity you for having such a narrow view of malaysia and quick to look down on her.
