The Federal Territories Minister, Tan Sri Annuar Musa, has said that private companies now have the opportunity to participate in the development of tourist products in Putrajaya by adding value to existing facilities or creating new products.
Putrajaya Corporation (PPJ) is open for any private company development ideas but must ensure that the value of the environment in a tourist destination is properly preserved.
For example, applications now are open for improvement in the Wetlands Park, so it can be commercially managed to attract more people not to become a commercial space, he said here today at a news conference.
He said that the PPJ has received proposals for glamping products in Wetlands Park from various local companies and it was expected that the selected company will begin work at the end of this year.
He added that there were also proposals on developing a Safari Park with a total estimated cost of RM500 million over 64.7 hectares of land in Precinct 19.
“We would like to see creativity. We will be very open and transparent, we want to give chance to anybody who wants to come and help bring Putrajaya to the next level in line with our policy of making Putrajaya a major recreational city,” he said.
