The Penang lawmaker, in his capacity as the chairman of GTCDC, led a delegation from Penang and Think City to France this week.
He led discussions with GTCDC partners, including Think City and Aga Khan Trust for Culture, to review the past three years of collaboration since the signing of the GTCDC Management Collaboration Agreement on October 16 in 2015.
GTCDC is a tripartite partnership between the Penang State Government's Chief Minister's Incorporated (CMI), Think City and the Aga Khan Trust for Culture that was established in 2015.
'GTCDC will be working closely with MBPP to mitigate the effects of gentrification and develop strategies to repopulate the core of the historic area,' Chow said.
He added that 2019 will be a crucial year for GTCDC as many of the projects will come to fruition.
