What makes or break a place – for residents, visitors, business, and the environment? The City Expo Malaysia 2021 (CEM 2021) will dissect the issues that make and break places.
Happening on November (forum from 8-12 Nov, and exhibition from 8 Nov to 8 Dec), the event hosted on a fully virtual platform will provide a crucial platform to shape discourse on how to build upon a common vision, expressed through shared values and aspirations.
This expo will highlight the role of urban planners, as represented by those in the Malaysian Institute of Planners in the country, and their counterparts from the region.
“The esteemed profession of planning helps us to chart a course for our cities in the delicate balance between functional efficiency and social equity. In this regard, few entities have done more to continuously advance collective knowledge, shared experience, and cooperation in Malaysia than the Malaysian Institute of Planners,” says Datuk Seri Maimunah Mohd Sharif, Executive Director of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat).
