am_7riel on ETP-Economic Transformation Programme Pt 2,the Greater KL



Greater Kuala Lumpur(KL) has been identified by Government as one of 12 National Key Economic Areas (NKEAs) that would our spur economic growth rapidly.

However, Greater KL should have limitless boundary and scopes of definition by not only looking for materials aspects only as such as rapid development or creating satellites city in this case to develop Sungai Buloh as part of Greater KL plan. It should be well-balanced of development, that would not sacrifice any reserve forest, or any open parks as part of green lungs to communities surround. If New York can have several acres of its Central Park in a center of New York, i shall not see it would be much problem for KL which are one third of New York's
size.

Central Park measurement


Any cities in the world that listed as livable cities not only have its own vibrancy and multitudes of uniqueness like still preserving and valued historical monuments or even buildings. What i would not understand here in Malay
sia, our Government does not seems care the historical values that we have in our shores that unlike in other countries,take example like Italy, or Paris.

Why do not we take advantage of old yet having its own historic values like Sultan Abdul Samad buildings, Kuala Lumpur Railway Stations, Pudu Jail Gate, Clock Tower at Medan Pasar formerly known Market Square (nearby Petaling Street that was built to commemorate the coronation of King George VI) along with unique Neo-classical shophouses, Masjid Jamek (which it was situated at the confluence of both Klang rivers and Sungai Gombak) and National Museum to name a few by beautified it as part of Greater KL as major tourists attractions?

To sum up,Greater KL should not neglect the values of having ample of green lush area, the artistics of Neo-classical buildings that have its own stories while still pursuing Government target to have its 1st class city by it means of reliable and efficient transportations, greater security granted and infrastructure developments holistically.

Your measurements of NY's Central Park are very wrong. The park measures approximately 2.5 miles in length, north to south, and at most 1/2 mile in width, east to west.
