PICC - The White Elephants

Finally it was revealed in the Parliament that the PICC (Putrajaya International Convention Center) is a white elephant, costing rate payer a stunning amount of RM800 million. Yet Lim Guan Eng in Penang still want his own PICC, Penang International Convention Center. Even with the help of the Federal Government, the PICC in Putrajaya still failed to measure up in term of utilization. How to make the PICC profitable seem to be a mission impossible for all those who fancy a convention center.

Anyway, Lim should be satisfied with the decision to relocate Parliament to the PICC, as he finally can go to the PICC for his legislative work. He should just forget about building PICC in Penang.
