KUCHING: Property website, iProperty.com Malaysia is set to publish an inaugural book entitled Malaysia's Top Property Developers 2011/2012 with the support of the Ministry of Tourism and Ministry of Housing and Local Government.

Minister of Housing and Local Government Malaysia, Dato' Wira Chor Chee Heung and Minister of Tourism, Dato’ Sri Ng Yen Yen both commended iProperty.com for successfully putting the book together and noted that the publication would significantly contribute to the growth of the property industry in Malaysia.

"It is an honour and privilege to endorse a publication which showcases Malaysia's Top Property Developers. International real estate investors find Malaysia an attractive place to invest in and the government is always open to having discussions and dialogues with relevant industry players and house buyers to ensure policies, regulations and programmes formulated and implemented are fair in protecting the interests of all parties concerned.” added Dato' Wira Chor Chee Heung.

Dato' Sri Ng Yen Yen said in her forward message that since the inception of the Malaysia My Second Home Programme (MM2H) in 2002, over 16,000 foreigners had since made residence in Malaysia, attracted by its low cost of living, developed infrastructure, friendly Malaysians, attractive tourist destinations and quality of life.

Group chief executive officer of iProperty.com, Di Gregorio said, "As Asia's leading and number one property portal group, it's a tremendous honour to have the ministries support this publication. With a dynamic and shared vision between all parties, we are able to put Malaysia on a trajectory to attract foreigners to invest and enhance the country’s competitiveness in the industry."

The top developers to be listed in the book included Berjaya Land Bhd, Country Heights Holdings Bhd, Dijaya Corporation Bhd, Glomac Bhd, IJM Corporation Bhd, IOI Properties Bhd, amongst many.

The website operator would also be creating a microsite on the book directly to the company’s website where keen readers could purchase and download a copy online.

Only a total of 10,000 copies was estimated to be sold at RM99 and would be available at all major bookstores in Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong, local hotels, business lounges and other popular locations with high traffic flow from December this year onwards.

INCREASING COMPETITIVENESS: With the publication of the book, iProperty.com is able to put Malaysia on a trajectory to attract foreigners to invest and enhance the country’s competitiveness in the industry.
