“New superapp to aid developers, buyers, and architects in housing projects, boosting efficiency and decision-making. Expected to launch next year, says Housing Minister.”

Kuala Lumpur, 04th July 2024, 14.25pm – The government is creating a superapp driven by big data analytics to serve as a reference tool for developers, buyers, and architects involved in new housing projects.

Housing and Local Government (KPKT) Minister Nga Kor Ming announced that the superapp is expected to launch next year.

“The superapp will enable buyers to verify developers’ backgrounds, including information on new residential areas under construction. For developers, it will aid in better business management and ensure that housing projects are developed in appropriate locations.”

“It also enhances business efficiency and aids in making more precise decisions. This helps reduce property overhang by identifying suitable areas for various types of products and houses through big data analysis, allowing developers to base their feasibility studies on this information,” he stated.

Nga made these remarks at a press conference following the launch of the ASEAN-China Ministerial Roundtable on Construction and Housing (ACMROCH) and the 23rd International Architecture, Interior Design, and Building Exhibition 2024 (Archidex) by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today.

In his speech, Nga praised China for being at the forefront of technology, continually advancing innovation and development. He expressed confidence that ASEAN would significantly benefit from increased collaboration and knowledge exchange with China.

By utilizing China’s technological advancements, Nga stated that ASEAN could accelerate its growth and development in various industries, especially in construction and housing.

“I am particularly impressed by the advancements in digital technologies and renewable energy, where China is a global leader.

“Strategic partnerships with China in green construction technologies will aid ASEAN and the broader Asia-Pacific region in transitioning away from fossil fuels. We need intelligent people to create smart cities that work for us,” he added.

Meanwhile, Nga mentioned that his ministry aims for a trade value of RM1 billion over the four days of the International Architecture, Interior Design, and Building Exhibition (Archidex) 2024, which starts today. The event is expected to attract over 40,000 visitors from 100 countries.

“More than 700 companies have been allocated space in 11 exhibition halls, with a waiting list of 200 additional companies unable to participate.

“Therefore, next year, when Malaysia chairs ASEAN, the Ministry of Local Government Development will collaborate with REHDA (Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association Malaysia) and other companies to organize the ASEAN Property Summit 2025, which will be a larger exhibition,” he said.

Earlier, Anwar and Nga observed the handover of a Letter of Intent from PR1MA CEO Datuk Seri Mohd Nazri Md Shariff, via its subsidiary PR1MA Communications Sdn Bhd, to Henry Hsu Yen Shuenn, the Deputy Country Director of the Malaysia Device Business Department, Consumer Business Group, Huawei Technologies (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.

The ceremony signifies a collaboration to incorporate Huawei’s smart devices into PR1MA developments, aiming to improve the quality of life for residents.
