KUALA LUMPUR, 23 February – The exemplary works of Prasarana Malaysia Berhad (Prasarana)- leader in the transformation of Malaysia’s public transport services and operator of Makkah’s Al Mashaaer Al Mugaddassah Metro Southern Line (MMMSL) in Saudi Arabia – has been duly recognised by the prestigious Middle East Business Leaders Awards (MEBLA).

Prasarana’s President and Group CEO, Dato’ Sri Azmi Abdul Aziz was accorded with the Leadership Excellence in Infrastructure Development award at the 7th edition of MEBLA, which was held in London on February 17.

MEBLA was organised by The Leaders International, a high-profile business magazine based in Malaysia and endorsed by American Leadership Development Association, a US-based non-government organization that showcases global leadership at large.

The organization received 123 nominations from 17 countries for various categories of awards where 32 companies as winners by judges in different categories and from various sectors including information technology, publishing, textile, public transport as well as beauty and wellness.

Prasarana was accorded the award in recognition of its massive contribution in management of public transport operations and development of public transport infrastructure that included the new LRT Line Extension Project, which was officially opened in June last year and South East Asia’s first elevated Bus Rapid Transit system using full-fledged electric buses in Bandar Sunway.

Prasarana also spearheaded the operations of the world’s most challenging rail services in the form of the MMMSL, which provided public transport convenience for more than 300,000 pilgrims from Middle East and South Asia in performing their haj.

Thanking MEBLA for the honour, Dato’ Sri Azmi said the award was further recognition to the transformation agenda that had been carried out by the Group in revitalizing the country’s public transport industry.
