General : Govt Plans To Set Up UTCs In Four States

IPOH, Jan 12 (Bernama) — The government is planning to set up urban transformation centres (UTCs) in four states which do not have such centres.

Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Chua Tee Yong said the states were Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang and Perlis.

“The government is still in discussion with the state governments to obtain appropriate locations in the respective states,” he told reporters after a working visit to UTC Perak here today.

Chua said the time frame to set up the UTC depended on finding a suitable location which must be accessible to people, with adequate parking.

Moreover, he noted that the government was aware of the nationwide positive response to UTC.

Earlier in his speech, Chua said a total of 8.7 million people had visited UTCs nationwide.

He said the Perak UTC recorded the highest number of visitors at 1,893,316, among its eight UTCs and two Mini UTCs.

Meanwhile, Ipoh Mayor, Datuk Harun Rawi said the revenue collected from services rendered at the UTCs showed a tremendous increase from RM379 million in 2013, to RM566 million last year.
