KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia provides comprehensive supply-side information like the number of housing starts and completions but lacks demand-side information, said the World Bank.

Senior housing specialist Dao Harrison based in Singapore’s World Bank Group suggested the need for a housing think tank, which would provide the big data in a timely manner and help to alleviate the scarcity of affordable housing in Malysia.
