During a Grab car ride from KL Sentral to our office in Mutiara Damansara recently, the driver asked us where we worked and when told that we were from the property portal EdgeProp.my, he began a conversation on the current Malaysian property market that lasted the entire 20 minute-ride.
What caught our attention was the high praise he heaped on the country’s first woman Housing and Local government minister Zuraida Kamaruddin and the work she has done including the policies that the ministry has introduced thus far. ”She knows her portfolio and what she’s doing. Instead of targeting the upper income class, she is taking care of the lower and mid-income groups who make up the majority of the country’s taxpayers,” said the young 30-something Malaysian who said that he is an opposition party supporter but that he remained impressed by Zuraida’s fortitude in dealing with housing issues.
