Authors : Norhayati Abd. Mukti and Jalaluddin Abdul Malek

Abstract: Contemporarily Malaysia is seriously and practically committed to developing the new city based on a cite within cities development for the urban life of the 21st. To create a new modern urban life, planners have introduced the concept of a multimedia city where the aim is to develop new cities such as Intelligent City, Garden City Putrajaya and Cyberjaya in Malaysia`s Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC). This corridor, about 15 kilometres by 50 kilometres has the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) in north, Putraya and Cyberjaya in the middle, and Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in the south. The MSC will further generate the concept of a multimedia city, and subsequently another new city development will be implemented by private sectors, such as the Bukit Unggul Eco-media City, Airport City, and Tasik Permaisuri City, A few questions arise on why Malaysia is implementing the multimedia city concept: the strengths, weaknesses, opportunity and threats (SWOT) to Malaysia in wanting to implement it; and what is the Malaysian government`s plan to realise the multimedia city concept. This paper hopes to answer the questions raised and it discusses briefly the Malaysian experience in implementing the multimedia city concept based on advanced infrastructure, such as information technology (IT) and advanced telecommunication system in the development of new cities.
