“I congratulate the winning bidders, and take this opportunity to remind them the importance of this project not just to Kuala Lumpur as a city, but to Malaysia in general,” he said in a statement yesterday.
He added that like the previous awards, best evaluated tenders were selected after a stringent, proper and fair evaluation by the OSPC.
