The Muafakat Komuniti offices are one of the initiatives under National Community Policy, which is meant to empower the local communities to encourage the residents to involve themselves more in community activities such as to manage and care for the common assets in the community.

“We [the ministry] have certain allocation for the set-up of the office, officers from KPKT will be assigned to the office to assist the community to kickstart the community activities,” he told after officiating the ground breaking event for – Paramount Property Sayangi Rumahku campaign.

He noted that the objective of community building and community empowerment could not be achieved without the involvement of the residents in the housing community.

He said the Muafakat Komuniti offices could serve as a bridge between the government, private sector and the public housing community to work together to improve the lives of the residents.

“The activities may not only be limited to refurbishment of common facilities, it can be education activities like tuition or handicraft classes that could benefit the residents,” he added.

The – Paramount Property Sayangi Rumahku campaign is a joint effort by EdgeProp Malaysia, Paramount Property Development Sdn Bhd and Nippon Paint Malaysia.

This is also a private sector initiative to support the National Community Policy (Dasar Komuniti Negara or DKN) formulated by KPKT).
