Recognising responsible developers and promoting inclusive home ownership
PUTRAJAYA, 15 September 2017 — The Malaysian Property Press Awards (MPPA) 2016/2017 — an annual awards ceremony by strategic property content provider, Terra Value Sdn Bhd, which recognises the outstanding achievements of participants within the property industry — will be held in Q4 this year.
To mark the 2016/2017 accolades, Terra Value has tied up with marketing arm Emjay Communications and strategically partnered with the Malaysian Global Business Forum (MGBF), Majlis Profesor Negara (MPN), under the Prime Minister’s Department, and stakeholder relations and communications counsel, Perception Management Sdn Bhd, to escalate the awards to greater heights.
At a press conference held this morning, Malaysian Property Press Awards chairman and Terra Value Sdn Bhd executive director Gunaprasath Bupalan said that with the Awards was tying up with MPN for the first time this year to put the spotlight on the issue of inclusive home ownership.
“This year, we are giving recognition to the Malaysian Government, for its efforts in delivering key infrastructure projects and housing for Malaysians over the past several decades. When you think about how far the country has come, it is heartening to see how the lives of people have improved through these projects,” said Gunaprasath.
“As the world advances into a more digitalised and connected world, Malaysia has to move forward with smart cities, green development and wealth creation through property ownership. Honouring responsible developers is key to making it happen,” he added.
The press conference was held to announce the tie-up between MPN and MPPA. During the event, the Malaysian Global Business Forum and MPN shared their findings on housing that the government has provided to the public and how much has been spent to help Malaysians with their housing needs.
“Partnering with Terra Value and the Malaysian Global Business Forum for the upcoming Malaysian Property Press Awards makes perfect sense. Our research has shown that over the past decades, there have been many housing initiatives brought forward by private developers as well as the government to benefit people from many walks of life and the economy at large. This Awards highlight many of these initiatives and the personalities behind the companies involved. It’s quite appropriate for us to be part of this endeavour,” said MPN president and chief executive officer Prof Datuk Dr Raduan Che Rose.
“The MPPA stands out as an award programme that recognises significant contributions made by property developers on individual merit, those who have contributed to the long term sustainable development of the industry and the nation as a whole, and we are proud to be part of this initiative,” said MGBF founding chairman Nordin Abdullah.
Making up the majority of the judging panel for The Malaysian Property Press Awards 2016 / 2017 are editors who are involved in the daily preparation of property articles, which provides them with the depth and breadth to observe and comment on projects, personalities or companies that they feel have excelled or contributed significantly to the betterment of the industry over the year.
Their collective effort, opinions and perspectives will culminate in 15 accolades being presented to deserving winners at The Malaysian Property Press Awards 2016 / 2017 gala awards ceremony to be held in Kuala Lumpur in Q4 this year.
Amongst the winners this year are Hatten Group Sdn Bhd, Mah Sing Group Berhad, The Haven Sdn Bhd, Far Capital Sdn Bhd, M101 Sdn Bhd, PKNS Real Estate Sdn Bhd (PREC), Andaman Group and Gila Hartanah.
The team of experts and judges have also shortlisted several projects for this year’s edition, which are in the process of being judged. Among which are UMLand Bhd for their township Seri Austin in Iskandar Malaysia; Mitraland for Gravit8 in Klang; UDA Holdings Bhd for their special project Legasi Kampong Bharu; and Macly Equity (from Singapore) for The Luxe by Infinitum.
This year, the event will also see a special award being presented to Datuk Ng Seing Liong JP, current Mapex organising chairman and past president and patron of Rehda, for his countless contributions to the property industry.
