Petaling Jaya, 15 March – Leading Malaysian property developer, LBS Bina Group Berhad (LBS) recently presented two commemorative trishaws to the Government of Melaka. The trishaws were a gesture of appreciation in honour of the state’s presence and support in officiating the launch of Melaka Cultural and Trade Centre in Zhuhai, China. The Melaka Cultural and Trade Centre is part of the Zhuhai International Circuit (ZIC) Upgrading and Transformation Plan, which is in line with the One Belt, One Road initiative.
Expressing his gratitude for the Melaka state government’s enthusiasm and support, LBS Group Managing Director, Tan Sri Lim Hock San, said, “As a Malaysian developer, we always look for opportunities to share our Malaysian identity and culture on the world stage. We are very proud to have this opportunity through our involvement in transforming the ZIC and development of the Melaka Cultural and Trade Centre in Zhuhai, China.”
The transformation plans for ZIC and development of the Melaka Cultural and Trade Centre were formalised through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between LBS Bina and its China counterpart, Jiuzhou Group Holdings Ltd. The MoU detailed the upgrade and transformation plan of multiple zones in Zhuhai International Circuit (ZIC). The plan also
included the development of a cultural centre to showcase the bond between China and Malaysia.
“We thank Tun Datuk Seri Utama Dr. Mohd Khalil bin Yaakob, the Governor and Datuk Seri Utama Ir. Hj. Idris bin Hj. Haron, Chief Minister of Melaka for their continuous support. We firmly believe the completion of the ZIC Upgrading and Transformation Plan will benefit the tourism and bilateral relations between Malaysia and China,” explained Tan Sri Lim.
“Trishaws were used as the main transportation in the olden days. Over the years, society has innovated better versions of transportation alternatives to make travelling more comfortable, stylish and safer. Today, trishaws continue to hold great sentimental value and remain a symbol of Malaysia’s rich heritage. We hope this partnership we have with the Melaka Government inspires more collaborative initiatives between private and government organisations,” said Tan Sri Lim.
