Putrajaya is the Administrative Centre of the Federal Government of Malaysia. Situated within the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC), the development of Putrajaya marks a new chapter in the history of modern city planning in Malaysia. It is set to be a model garden city with sophisticated information network base on multimedia technologies. Termed as Malaysia's first Intelligent Garden City, Putrajaya will become a vital development catalyst due to the role it will assume as a model city - as the nerve centre of the nation and an ideal place to live, work, conduct business and engage in sports and recreational activities. Putrajaya promises a comfortable and quality lifestyle for its residents. Lush greenery, botanical gardens and parks are spread across landscapes enhanced by large bodies of water and wetlands. Residential areas are supported by commercial hubs and public amenities that are planned and integrated for an ideal "live-work" environment. Putrajaya is located along the South Growth Corridor which houses the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC). Physically, the MSC covers a 15 by 50 sq km area which begins with the Kuala Lumpur City Centre in the north and extends to KL International Airport at Sepang in the south. Supporting the MSC is a high capacity, fully digital telecommunications infrastructure designed to the highest international standards in capacity and reliability. Putrajaya will use multimedia technologies to become an electronic administrative centre. Interdepartmental communications and interactions with the public will be conducted via electronic and multimedia channels. The development of Putrajaya and its twin city, Cyberjaya, will position the MSC competitively in the international arena. Putrajaya sits on a magnificent 4,931 hectares in Sepang, Selangor, within the MSC. It is 44km south of Kuala Lumpur and 40km north of KL International Airport in Sepang via existing highways.
