Bringing Malaccans Together and Melaka to the World
MALACCA: The National Archives of Malaysia (ANM) has proposed to build a Malacca State Archives costing RM30 million in the effort to preserve state historical records.
National Archives director-general Datuk Azemi Abdul Aziz said the proposed Malacca State Archives would be built in Ayer Keroh here and the ANM office now operating in Menara Persekutuan, Ayer Keroh would also be shifted to the new building.
He said currently ANM was in the process of appointing the project development consultant and construction was expected to begin in Jan next year.
"With the building we could keep and preserve Malacca government records and documents systematically in line with international standards," he told Bernama.
Commenting further he said the Malacca State Archives which would be built beside the Home Ministry complex in Ayer Keroh, would be completed with an exhibition hall, repository and other specific facilities for research especially those involving records and history. — Bernama
