He continued to emphasise the importance of ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance) and SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) policies in future property development projects. He urged all winners, participants, and future participants to remain up-to-date, relevant, and sensitive to emerging trends in the industry, such as the trends towards modern smart homes and co-living spaces, to remain competitive and deliver what the market demands.
Dr Yu Kee Su, the organising chairman of Malaysia Property AwardTM on the other hand, revealed to the media that the competition was incredibly tight this year, and the judges had a hard time selecting the winners. “The high level of excellence displayed in the submissions speaks to the quality of the property industry in Malaysia,” Yu added.
Yu commended the committee's commitment to ensuring that the Malaysia Property AwardsTM continue to be a benchmark of excellence in the property industry. “They are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards and ensuring that the awards reflect the latest developments in the industry!”, Yu exclaimed.
Yu added further that the organising committee is committed to ensuring that the judging process is as objective as possible. They appreciate the Panel of Jury and Independent Judges' expertise and experience, which have been invaluable in the judging process. The organising committee also thanked the secretariat for their tireless efforts in coordinating the award's organising activities.
The organising committee hopes that the property industry will continue to be a major contributor to the economic growth and development of the country, creating jobs, driving innovation, and attracting foreign investment. They also hope to receive more submissions in the next year's award from the winners and future participants.
