Where is the market study, cash flow estimates, economic impact analysis? No information what so ever regarding the physical site inspection? Any analysis of local and regional economic and demographic information? Any discussion with local area and regional hotel/conference center operators? Is there any gathering and compilation of data from national convention industry research firms and publications? Any discussion with representatives of hotel and convention center management companies?
Without analyses that based on estimates, assumption and other research of the market, knowledge of the industry, information regarding the project, how on earth the public and MPPP going to comment and participate in the decision making? This is purely a decision of a single individual who has no knowledge of the industry.
LGE totally disregard our right to know when he make the decision to build the PICC.
We need to see the financial analyses and forecast. What are the legal, engineering and regulatory requirements applicable to the project, including zoning, and other state and local government regulations, permits and licenses. Is there any effort being made to determine the possible effect of the project on PISA, present, and future federal, state and local legislation, including environmental or ecological matters, compliance with Manual Saliran Mesra Alam or interpretation thereof?
We need to know the market demand analyses, the cash flow estimates, the economic impact analyses, the potential impact of any sharp rise or decline in local economy and general economic conditions, to see whether the project is viable or not. Without all these information, how the state government come to the decision to direct the MPPP to build the PIGG will be a puzzle to the public. The so call public hearing or feedback is just for show. The decision already been made to proceed with the building of PICC, LGE is misleading the public again.
