PUTRAJAYA: All ministries, with the exception of International Trade and Industry, Works and Defence, are expected to move to the federal administrative capital here by 2010.

Putrajaya Corporation president Tan Sri Samsudin Osman said construction of buildings to house several ministries were already going on while some were in planning stages.

He said that Unity, Culture, Arts and Heritage as well as Tourism ministries were among those which would be moving here in the near future.

“The three ministries have decided not to move as they consider their location as strategic. They will continue to remain at their present location while other ministries operating in Kuala Lumpur are making plans to move to Putrajaya in the next two years or so,” he told reporters on Monday.

Samsudin said there would be more commercial buildings in the federal administrative capital to meet demands for such outlets, adding that currently the only commercial buildings were Putrajaya Holdings Sdn Bhd (PjH) and the soon-to-be opened 26 Boulevard at Precinct 3.
