Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin said Malaysia will be seen as a deserted land if the issue of unsold surplus houses and properties now estimated to reach almost RM100bil is not promptly addressed.

She added that the government has been carrying out various measures to overcome the problem, including the Home Ownership Campaign. As a result, 21,000 units of houses valued at RM13.4bil were sold in the first six months of this year.

Zuraida said this during question time at Dewan Rakyat on Wednesday.
