Ho, Chin Siong (2006) Putrajaya - Administrative Centre of Malaysia -planning concept and implementation. In: Sustainable Urban Development and Governance Conference, 16 Nov 2006, SungKyunKwan University, Seoul.



Putrajaya was designated as the new administration seat of the Malaysian Government following the Government’s decision to relocate the federal administrative capital in June 1993 from Kuala Lumpur to the district of Sepang in Selangor. The relocation was part of the decentralisation efforts and also the Government’s efforts to alleviate traffic congestion in Kuala Lumpur to ensure its continued development as Malaysia’s premier business hub. Putrajaya is a model city planned with “great respect for the environment” The city is planned to embrace two (2) main themes -- city in a garden and an intelligent city. The construction of Putrajaya commenced in October 1996. By 2006, Putrajaya has a population of 60,0000 and is supported with modern and smart public amenities and infrastructure. About 38% of the land is being developed into parkland. Putrajaya has the largest man-made wetland totaling about 200 ha, which is used for recreational activities, scientific and biological research. Putrajaya represents an administrative centre for the new millennium.
