This was partly the resultant of the identification of growth conurbations in the National Physical Plan and the call for a more balanced development growth in the country. All three corridors of the Peninsular Malaysia will bring about great change to development and allocation of funds and budget is based on these master plans projects. This seminar have explored and udpated planners in its current progress. 3 main speakers involved in this seminar are :
a. How are them these plans incorporated into Federal Department of Town and Country Planning (FDTCP) of Peninsular Malaysia's Development Plan system?
b. What is the legal status of these Master Plan?
c. Who is the custodian of these Master Plans?
e. Are these plans competing or complementing each other?
f. Will they boost Malaysia economy for next 10-15 years?
g. Will Penang and Johore Bahru are globalization cities for the next 10 years?
h. The 3 economic corridors will provide international standard of facilities and infrastructures to attract foreign investors... Will our local authorities and cities (which fall in the economic corridors) are more efficient?
The ironics about this seminar are :
a. 2 of the paper presenter are FDTCP senior town planner officers (Encik Ismail Ibrahim and Y Bhg Dato' Jebasingam Issace John) - I am so pround for both of you. I can see you so passionate of your job thats why you can deliver your paper and anwer the questions so confident.
b. These 3 economic corridors are sitting in one place and try to 'talk and communicate each other'- I hope they do not competing but complementing each other.
