By Mustakim Ramli

SHAH ALAM, April 17 — The state government is collaborating with Think City Sdn Bhd (Think City) to provide a public housing community platform known as Selangor Kita2Kita (K2K) to improve the quality and standard of living of People’s Housing Project (PPR) residents.

Selangor Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said through a pilot project at PPR Kampung Baru Hicom here, it went for a holistic approach, working with the community to find solutions to meet the social, economic and physical aspects.

“Think City has changed the paradigm and turn the previous pandemic into an opportunity to measure, study and identify needs that are in line with state government expectation.

“That is, we give them what they need such as data management and processing as well as big data analysis that can give more accurate answers on government policies,” he said after visiting PPR Kampung Baru Hicom in conjunction with Selangor K2K Day.

Meanwhile, Think City through a statement informed that K2K is an effort to link government programmes, corporate contributions, the public housing community and its management system, through a digital platform to provide delivery measures and impacts that are efficient, effective and transparent.

“This includes connecting the community with cheaper food and goods, providing easy access to skills and training.

“The system is supported by community mobilisation and impact measurement through data analysis from digital platforms and other sources,” said its managing director, Hamdan Abdul Majeed.
