Dr Mahathir officiates Putrajaya signage

PUTRAJAYA (Bernama) – Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad yesterday unveiled the ‘Putrajaya’ signage, the latest landmark at the federal government’s administrative centre.

With Perdana Putra, which houses the Prime Minister’s office in the background, the signage, in the form of letters – P, U, T, R, A, J, A, Y and A – and built using stainless steel, has colourful graphic images that also feature the Jalur Gemilang.

The ceremony was held at Dataran Putra, Precinct 1 and was also attended by Putrajaya Corporation (PPj) President Datuk Dr Aminuddin Hassim.

According to Aminuddin, the signage was inspired by young PPj officers as a manifestation of the entirety of Putrajaya as the Federal government’s administrative centre.

He said the building of the signage was among plans to enliven Putrajaya that were tabled to the Prime Minister last December 12.
