Speech for Penang Hill Corporation Annual Dinner(e/c)

PRESS STATEMENT ON 16 JANUARY 2015 – SPEECH BY CHIEF MINISTER OF PENANG FOR PENANG HILL CORPORATION ANNUAL DINNER ON 15 JANUARY 2015

First and foremost, I would like to thank and congratulate the organizing committee for organizing the 4th Appreciation Night after the incorporation of Penang Hill Corporation.

I am very delighted to hear that the total number of visitors in 2014 has reached 1,364,074 surpassing the target set for the year (1.3 Mil) and 2013 figures of 1,233,556 passengers by 11%. Furthermore the performance of funicular operation has also been maintained and this has helped in improving the customer’s experience while taking the funicular service up to Penang Hill.

The total collection of ticket sales and other incomes of PHC have increased about 14.9% from the year 2013. What a great memorable year to remember and next year our target should be 1.45 million passengers.

Indeed Penang Hill has carried out so many meaningful projects last year such as hill top view deck together with slope stabilization, micro biological balancing technology implemented in food waste and in septic system and heritage trail.

Our vision of Penang Hill being “The Hill Resort of Choice In Malaysia” can only be achieved if we stay united with team spirit, determination to improve our competency by acquiring knowledge and maintaining our integrity in our work performance.

Keep up the good work!

LIM GUAN ENG

首席部长2015年1月16日于槟城光大发表的文告 – 槟城首席部长于2015年1月15日在升旗山机构年度晚宴的讲词

我非常高兴听到2014年造访升旗山的游客达到了136万4074人,超越原本定下130万人的目标,也超越2013年123万3556人乘客11%。而且如今缆车的性能已经获得良好维护,这无疑提供了游客在乘坐升旗山缆车的时候,拥有美好的体验。

升旗山机构2014年的升旗山缆车售票及其他收入比2013年增加了14.9%。这是值得记忆及难忘的一年,明年,我们的目标是要达到145万的缆车乘客。

升旗山去年展开了许多非常有意义的项目,如山顶观景台翻修及斜坡加固,推行山上厨于及化粪池的微生物平衡科技以及推行山上古迹步道。

我们升旗山的愿景是“马来西亚首选的山顶度假胜地”。这项愿景唯有我们团结一致,团队精神上下一心,在工作表现上充分掌握知识及秉持廉洁,决心要提升我们的竞争能力,才能成功。

各位做得好,请继续加油!

林冠英
