Meet The Only Age-Friendly Town In Southeast Asia

Taiping district of Malaysia's Perak state has been chosen as the only age-friendly town in Southeast Asia, Malaysian National News Agency (BERNAMA) reported.

Taiping Municipal Council (MPT) president Borhan Abdul Halim said a celebration ceremony was scheduled to be held at the Taiping Perdana Hotel here on Sept 30.

He said the Heritage Town was chosen after MPT had met various criteria set by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to achieve the status within five years.

Borhan said more than US$237,491 (RM1 million) had been spent by MPT in the research process carried out over the past two years through grants from the United Nations Development Programme.

“This will not only make Taiping well-known to the world but it will also make it as a pensioners’ town that can attract pensioners to settle here as well as foreign investors to invest here,” he told reporters here Tuesday.
