JOHOR BARU: More countries have approached the Works Ministry’s Professional Services Development Corp for advice on developing infrastructure. 

Deputy Works Minister Datuk Mohd Zin Mohamed said Algeria was the latest country to seek the corporation's advice in developing housing estates similar to Malaysia's. 

He said the interest showed by foreign countries was testimony of the standard of services offered. 

“This is also a sort of international recognition towards our ability to plan and implement public infrastructure. 

“We hope this recognition would spur us to further improve our services as the opportunity to venture into foreign lands is vast,” Mohd Zin told reporters after opening the Public Works Department's senior official conference here yesterday. 

On the investigation by the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) into an allegation that PWD had solicited RM500,000 from contractors to host the three-day conference, he said the agency was free to do so. 

State ACA director Abdul Razak Idris said the agency had begun its investigation on the allegation and declined to give further details.
