PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia should not be proud of its skyscrapers and landmarks when some of its people are still not enjoying a good infrastructure, says Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.


Anwar said the government should guarantee that its people including the underprivileged are being looked after.

“Malaysia should not be known for its glorious skyscrapers. Malaysia should be known for providing for its people, including the underprivileged,” he said in his first National Day Perdana address since taking over as Prime Minister in November last year

He added that all schools in the country will have reasonable basic facilities in October.

The 2023 National Day celebration, themed ‘‘Malaysia Madani: Tekad Perpaduan, Penuhi Harapan’ (Determination in Unity, Fulfiling Hope) will take place in Putrajaya on Thursday (Aug 31).


This marks the fifth time the National Day celebration has been held in Putrajaya. It was held in Putrajaya in 2003, 2005, 2018 and 2019.

Ten contingents will participate in the parade on Thursday, namely Nationhood; Malaysia Madani Unity; Economy; Banking; Telecommunications; Creative and Broadcasting Industry; Community; National Sports; National Well-being and Security.
