9 June, PETALING JAYA – As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic along with the economic slowdown, it has certainly put institutional, private sector, international community and individual resilience to the test.

The phenomena have drastically changed the landscape of the property industry both globally and locally. Many developers have relooked their business strategy and operations, focusing on business continuation and business recovery plans for the near to long term.

Experienced town-maker

Having been through several economic cycles, developer Gamuda Land, backed by over two decades of town-making experience in Malaysia and other parts of the world, is resilient in addressing the challenges.

“While the pandemic caught us by surprise, entailing many uncertainties; this challenging economic climate however, is not new to us.” said Ngan Chee Meng, Chief Executive Officer of Gamuda Land.
He continued, “Over the last 40 years, the Group has experienced and overcame many challenging moments including the Asian financial crisis in 1997 and the US subprime mortgage crisis in 2007/08. We are prepared and ready to deal with the sudden adverse change of economic environment with the cooperation of everyone in the organisation. Our town-making principles, which form our solid foundation of creating sustainable towns and communities, coupled with the team’s agility to adapt to the new normal, will see us going to the market with creative solutions for genuine property buyers or investors.”

If we observe the property market trend closely, we are now in the recession phase and will soon be entering into the recovery phase. It is noteworthy that the recovery phase in every cycle usually starts higher than the previous recovery phase. Whether it is 1997 or 2007 financial crisis, property prices always rebound and the general trend is upward.

Agility to adapt

Currently focusing on resilient recovery, the developer believes that it is time to refresh its marketing strategies, re-align its business goals and upskill its employees.

“Times like this paves way for change, often for the better. We have been actively rolling out strategic innovation, developing new skills for an integrated response, diversifying our outreach programmes and introducing attractive marketing campaigns,” commented Ngan, adding that the market needs some stimulus to turn around from both the government and the developers, which means it is a good time for buyers to invest in property.


Leveraging on the government stimulus packages and the Overnight Policy Rate cut by Bank Negara, Gamuda Land introduces its GL WOW campaign that revolves around enticing offers and financial solutions designed to bring assurance to home buyers in these uncertain times.
