KUALA LUMPUR, 15 October – In response to a statement by Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin in The Edge article dated 12 October 2018, Mah Sing’s Chief Executive Officer Datuk Ho Hon Sang said that the Group is confident that it is on the right track with “74% of our targeted residential sales in 2018 priced below RM500,000”.
In the article, Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamarddin said that the Government will incorporate three categories of affordable housing that will be constructed under the National Housing Policy, with houses fetching RM150,000 and below, RM150,000 – RM300,000 and RM300,000 – RM500,000 making up the new categories.
“Mah Sing welcomes this announcement as we been developing affordable priced homes since 2015, in an effort to enable everyone to own a home,” said Datuk Ho Hon Sang.

“Our customers are our priority; hence, our focus is to deliver products that is in demand and strategically located with added accessibility and connectivity,” he also said.

Over in Johor, Mah Sing is also constructing a direct access from its Meridian Bayvue to the Johor Bahru East Coast Highway as well as a connecting road into the Tanjung Langsat – Cahaya Baru Toll Connecting Highway for its Meridin East Township.
“Moving forward, we will continue to enhance the lives of our customers by developing accessible and well-planned products. We want to position Mah Sing as a big contributor for the development of affordable homes for the nation,” said Datuk Ho Hon Sang.
