KUALA LUMPUR, July 8 (Bernama) -- The government is fully committed to providing affordable and quality houses for the people, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. "Affordable housing has always been of paramount importance to the Barisan Nasional government," Najib said in his latest posting on Facebook today.

In that spirit, he said, the government aimed to build 100,000 houses nationwide under the 1Malaysia Civil Servants' Housing Programme as part of its commitment to deliver cheap and quality housing for all.

Yesterday, Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa said a total of 100,000 houses would be built under the 1Malaysia Civil Servants' Housing Programme (PPA1M) nationwide.

Besides Putrajaya, the government will identify strategic locations in the federal capital and major centres, including in Sabah and Sarawak, to expand the programme.
