I would like to think that a century from now people would know they are in Putrajaya because of the uniqueness of the city architecturally." - Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad

The former Prime Minister unveiled Putrajaya in 1999 as a shining example of its grand vision for the future. Putrajaya has since come to symbolise the branding of Malaysia.

The overall goal for Putrajaya is to be an efficient and ‘intelligent’ city, developed within the context of a sustainable garden city concept that would provide comfort and security for its inhabitants well into the 21st century. In line with the government’s vision of turning the country into a ‘Developed Nation’ by the year 2020, it is envisioned that Putrajaya be a model city, one that is well-planned world-class in terms of its overall planning, urban design and environmental management.
