Perak Can Set Example For Other States In Preserving Environment – German Envoy

IPOH, Nov 25  — Perak can set an example for other states in preserving the environment with its proactive measures towards cleaner living habits, said German Ambassador to Malaysia Dr Peter Blomeyer.

He said the implementation of environmental programmes in the state, such as in Taiping, has garnered international recognition.

Taiping was selected for the implementation of the first phase of the Age-Friendly City pilot project by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in 2019.

It was also named the third most sustainable city in the world during the Sustainable Top 100 Destination Awards at the International Tourismus-Börse (ITB) in Berlin, Germany in the same year.

He said awareness from all parties including non-governmental organisations (NGOs) is needed to contribute to the efforts of developing the city in an environmentally responsible way where people can live and recycle their waste or turn it into useful material.

He said this in a press conference today in conjunction with his two-day visit to Ipoh.

Blomeyer also pointed out that it was important to hold discussions with local communities to help the authorities in their efforts to preserve the remaining green spaces for future generations.

The ambassador took time off from his busy schedule to meet with NGOs, individuals, environmentalists and traders.
