DAP National Deputy Chairman and MP for Kepong Dr Tan Seng Giaw believes that KL City Hall (KLCH) must raise its administrative and developmental efficiency, so that KL will become a world-class city by 2020.
One aim should be to improve KL's ranking among the cities of the world. According to an assessment, KL is 48th among world cities.
On 18.8.2010, Dr Tan notices the american Foreign Policy Magazine pegging 65 cities, New York coming first, London second, Tokyo third and KL 48th.
Malaysia's objective is to make the country world class in economic, social, political and spiritual aspects. KL's aim is to become a world-class tropical city of light. This means that she would like to reach that status in working environment, standard of living, trading atmosphere and administration.
For example, What are KL's part in the globe, benefits to city folks, workers, and tourists. The allocation of public housing, stalls during Ramadan and so forth must be fair and just.
Comparing with New York, London and Tokyo, KL is lagging behind. Obviously, KLCH has been planting more green trees in the city, making her greener. It should go further.
City dwellers, workers, tourists and investors hope that infrastructure, administration. social, cultural and societal facilities will improve.The public would not like to see that in the middle of busy traffic intersections, a building such as Puduraya sticks out like a sore thumb. A similar view can be seen in other areas like Cheras and Kepong.
