There are many lessons Malaysia can learn from Japan, from the latter’s public housing mechanism to its smart wellness and sustainable townships, as it strives to shape a more inclusive and sustainable housing sector.
OSAKA (Oct 5): Malaysia Housing and Local Government (KPKT) Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin and the Mayor of Izumisano City in Osaka, Hiroyasu Chiyomatsu expect S P Setia Bhd’s upcoming mixed development in Izumisano City to create economic benefits for both countries.

看看你祖父母位于Petaling Jaya的单层独立式房屋，不但有宽敞的3,000平方尺空间，还有停车空间及绿油油的花园。40年前，这间房子只要价RM100,000。 现在看看你正在居住的900平方尺公寓单位，室外空间只有一个小小的阳台和两个前后并排的停车位。这个单位在5年前要价RM450,000。 所以，你发现这些年来，我们房子的空间缩小了多少吗？ 根据联合国人居署（UNCHS），充足空间是居住环境的重点。所以，现在的问题是，大马人在今日有没有符合人居署的居住空间呢？ MKH Bhd集合从房屋部、UNCHS和世界银行采集的数据，撰写了名为“The Quality of Living Space – Larger House Means Better Living Quality”的研究报告显示，澳洲的平均房子空间位于全球之冠，有2,592平方尺，紧接的是美国（2,163平方尺）和加拿大（1,948平方尺）。 有趣的是，马来西亚排名在全球第九，平均房屋面积有1,264平方尺，也是唯一挤入前10名的亚洲国家。 不过，该报告也指出，房子面积和个人平均生活面积是两回事，因为房子面积不能反映个人生活的面积和品质，比方说，菲律宾每间房子平均住了5个人，但瑞典却只有两个人。 所以，人均居住面积能够更准确地反映当地的生活品质。 在大马，人均居住面积是293.
