Welcome to Malaysia

"Malaysia is blessed with rich natural beauty and vast bio- resources. However, we must remember that the beauty and splendor of our environment can be lost in the blink of an eye. As such, we need to treasure God's gift to us and make every effort to protect our natural environment for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations. In line with this , Malaysia determined to gear the country towards the realization of being the Most Beautiful and advanced Garden Nation by the year 2020. I would like to call upon each and every one of us, as the inhabitants of this world, to love and preserve our natural environment. Let's try and make the world a better place to live, without depriving our younger generation the same privileges that we are currently enjoying."

Dato' Seri Ong Ka Ting
Minister of Housing & Local Government, Malaysia

IFLA World Welcomes You

Landscape Architects have the knowledge and design skills to plan and manage landscapes. As stewards, it is our responsibility to protect, conserve and enhance those landscapes. Whether we are dealing with massive devastation causes by natural impacts, or with the design of tiny but much loved spaces, we must use our knowledge, in collaboration with other professions, to benefit people and places.

The 44th IFLA2007 World Congress in Malaysia will provide us with additional skills, inspiration and examples so that we in turn can contribute to Edening the Earth. I welcome all landscape architects and colleagues to this Congress. Come to Malaysia and help to make the 44th IFLA2007 World Congress memorable.

Welcome to IFLA2007

"Selamat Datang and warm welcome to all participants of the 44th IFLA 2007 World Congress in Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia is proud to host the 44th World Congress and we are delighted to showcase Kuala Lumpur, our "Sustainable Tropical Garden City and Putrajaya, our 'Intelligent Garden City". The theme for the congress is 'EDENing THE EARTH. It is very timely and appropriate for us to deliberate on this subject as parks and greeneries play a major role in fostering community interaction besides being able to create a strong sense of belonging within a beautiful, safe, quality and productive living environment. This congress will also offer the opportunity for all the participants to keep updated about all current research and experimental work as well as latest trends and technologies in landscape development. The months of August through September are important months for Malaysia as we celebrate our 'Golden Jubilee National Celebration - Anniversary of our independence. Witness first hand Malaysia's diverse culture heritage in this memorable colorful parade. We look forward to welcome you."
