PETALING JAYA: Should government agencies and essential goods businesses move to the outskirts of urban areas to boost economic conditions at affordable housing locations.
Think-tank Emir Research head of Social, Law and Human Rights, Jason S.W. Loh, thinks so.
“To promote productivity and effective deployment of human resources, it is a good idea to disperse and reassign civil servants farther away from the city area,” he said.
“It doesn’t necessarily have to be about relocation to another district or state, but about reconfiguring the urban setting to be closer to the ‘marketplace’, that does not have to be mainly based in the central business district.
