The following listing of twenty-plus organizations is intended eventually to identify all those groups and institutions who are going to have a role in the restructuring of Penang’s transportation arrangements. (Each of these entries is clickable and will take you directly to the indicated source.)
But here’s our question. Are there other groups and agencies (and companies and media) who should be identified here for communication and coordination purposes in support of the project? And should you have a contact name and email address at hand, that would be much appreciated. If so please let us know via the email address email@example.com. Thank you.
