What is Sustainable Development?
"A development that fulfils the current and the future needs so as to achieve the continuity between the development in the economic, social and the environment for the prosperity of all without compromising the needs of the future generation”

Sustainable development also balances the economic development with the social needs and the environment that is based on the principle of ‘People Centric'. This approach is very apt to the aspiration and the aim of 1 Malaysia, “people first, performance now" (rakyat didahulukan pencapaian diutamakan) which was put forward by Y.A.B the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
