JOHOR BAHRU: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob (pic) on Saturday (March 5) outlined four directions that need to be given attention to in the development of the country's landscape.
The four directions, among others, involve efforts to streamline the country's landscape network system with priority given to the expansion of the country's green infrastructure through a comprehensive landscape development programme.
"The second is to harness the potential and economic value of the landscape industry. Inline with global changes, we should harness the potential of the country's landscape industry as an economic value or as a source of return and a new economy for the country.
"The third is to protect the landscape asset of Keluarga Malaysia. A legal method of control has been established to ensure the landscape assets can be protected, in addition to continuous effective education because loss of the landscape assets will bring losses to the country and difficult to be restored," he added.
The prime minister said this in his speech at the 2022 National Landscape Day celebration at Taman Bandar Ekoflora here on Saturday.
