A Light at the End of the Tunnel?

Selangor will be resuming negotiations on water restructuring with the Federal Government despite past setbacks.

“The Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry and Selangor have agreed to work together to find the best solution in the restructuring of the water services industry in the state,” said the Mentri Besar’s press secretariat in a statement here yesterday.

Both sides had also agreed to set up a joint task force, headed by the State Secretary, to find an amicable solution to all pending issues involving the exercise, which would include takeover of water assets from the four water concessionaires by Selangor, the statement said.

The commitment to find a solution was made by both the new minister Datuk Peter Chin and Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim during their first official meeting in Putrajaya on Monday
