Penang report cover

malaysia penang mail box27 November 2013. Here please find an advanced working copy of the final report which is being sent out to all those who collaborated with the various supporting events in Penang for their views and suggestions.  The immediate  next step in this process is to collect these comments and suggestions and working with them to finalize the report for public distribution and discussion.

But even more important the priority  now is to initiate the process of selection and implementation of the large number of measure and proposals that have been received over the last months in this project, matching them with specific groups who are ready to work to advance them and in the process get Penang on the path to sustainable transport and quality of life for all. .

Get in touch if you wish to be part of this process.
