KUCHING, March 12–Property developers’ participation is vital in ensuring the successful delivery of 500,000 units of PR1MA homes nationwide, worth more than RM100 billion.
Perbadanan PR1MA Malaysia (PR1MA) chief executive officer Datuk Abdul Mutalib Alias said the participation from developers, both public and private, through collaborations with PR1MA was critical in ensuring the success of PR1MA housing.
“Public housing schemes should be seen as part of our nation-building agenda in addressing housing needs of the middle-income group, particularly those living in urban and sub-urban areas,” he said in a statement in conjunction with the launching of PR1MA@Sarawak Home Expo here Saturday.
The expo being held from March 11 to 13 at the old Sarawak State Assembly building in Petra Jaya here was officiated by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak today.
At the same event the Prime minister launched a mobile app “PR1MA” as an added convenience in the registration of PR1MA homes to the public, especially those who do not have internet access at home.
Abdul Mutalib said PR1MA Board or known as Members of Corporation (MOC) has to date approved a total of eight projects, comprising 9,185 units of quality affordable homes to be built in Sarawak.
The eight projects are PR1MA@Vista Tunku, Kuching, PR1MA@Matang, PR1MA@Matang2, PR1MA@Semenggok, PR1MA@Sibu, PR1MA@Petrajaya 2, PR1MA@Sungai Plan and PR1MA@Bintrawa.
