PUTRAJAYA: This year’s National Landscape Day (HLN) celebration will feature various activities and booths aimed at developing the local landscaping industry and youth talent, says Nga Kor Ming.

The Housing and Local Government Ministry said this year’s celebrations, planned to be held at Taman Tasik Shah Alam, would include booths from various industry players for the public to experience.

He also announced a number of new activities for the event including a marathon, cooking demonstrations, industry dialogues, workshops as well as a number of art competitions for both adults and kids.

The celebrations are planned to last for 10 days from May 24 till June 2 and are expected to draw 50,000 visitors, according to Nga.

“Through this, we hope to provide a platform for landscape industry players to showcase and promote their products to the public.

“This will then help to further develop the quality of the landscaping industry which is estimated to be valued at RM29bil as it both contributes significantly to the economy while beautifying the country.

“Meanwhile, through these family activities, we also hope to enhance public awareness on the importance and key role landscape development plays in the country,” he added after officiating the soft launch of the HLN celebration here Wednesday (May 15).

He noted that there would also be new awards to recognise establishments with the best landscapes for hotels or resorts, schools, villages and many others.

His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim, the King of Malaysia, is expected to officiate the celebrations on May 25, making it the first time for the King of Malaysia to inaugurate HLN celebrations.
