KL gets 16 Melaka trees to mark close relationship

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) – The Melaka Historical City Council (MBMB) yesterday presented 16 Melaka trees to Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) to mark the close relationship between the federal capital and Melaka.

Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan said the Melaka trees would be planted in several places in the capital in line with the Kuala Lumpur Low Carbon Society 2030 campaign.

“For today’s tree planting programme, two of the trees will be planted in Jalan Melaka while  the remaining will be planted at  the Perdana Botanical Gardens, Taman Metropolitan Batu, Taman Rimba Bukit Kerinchi and the DBKL Nursery,” he said at the tree planting ceremony in Jalan Melaka yesterday.

Also present were Melaka Historical City Mayor Mansor Sudin and Melaka Housing, Local Government, Environment and Green Technology Committee Chairman  Datuk Tey Kok Kiew.

Meanwhile, Mansor said the catalyst for the partnership was the friendship between MBMB and DBKL over the last 30 years.

He added that the cooperation between the two local councils thus far resulted in various positive benefits, among others MBMB has learned the aspects of governance, enforcement, engineering, traffic management and green technology from DBKL.
