This LoI signing is an extension of its first initiation on 19 February 2019 and once again unites the same vision of both institutions in enhancing the capacity of local governments.

Representing the KLRTC was the Mayor of Kuala Lumpur himself, Datuk Seri Mahadi Bin Che Ngah; and UCLG ASPAC was represented by Secretary General Dr. Bernadia Irawati Tjandradewi. The signing ceremony took place in the Kuala Lumpur City Hall Headquarters.

In her remarks, Dr. Bernadia highlighted that with this new LoI, both parties will continue to grow and reap benefits from each other through mutual partnership. It also expects to optimise the function and operation of KLRTC to be the capacity building and learning hub for cities and local governments on sustainable development, not only in Malaysia but also in Asia and the Pacific.

Mayor of Kuala Lumpur, Datuk Seri Mahadi Bin Che Ngah highlighted the importance of collaboration in achieving common goals as UCLG ASPAC and KLCH have been standing together for decades in addressing the importance of sustainable development towards capacity building transformation and activities. “With UCLG ASPAC’s presence in KLRTC, we hope it becomes a collective effort between both parties to enhance KLRTC’s capacity to be a role model for cities in Asia and the Pacific, and beyond,” he added.

KLCH’s vision to become “The well-being city for all in 2030” aligns with UCLG ASPAC Manifesto and this will be the foundation of the cooperation and strategy. UCLG ASPAC will continue its support to Kuala Lumpur, particularly in the capacity building programme, and advocacy to bring more collaboration within its network of cities and local governments.
