Putrajaya Corporation president Tan Sri Aseh Che Mat said as the flowers were relatively unknown in the country, they were expected to entice visitors to the annual flower show which targeted one million visitors. "If many people think that Asam Batu will not be well received, they are wrong. It will definitely create a lot of interests," he told a news conference at his residence here Friday.
He hoped the entrance fee at RM3 for adults and RM1 for children aged between seven and 12 would not burden visitors while convincing foreigners of the gorgeous flower show.
The Floria Putrajaya 2014 is scheduled to be opened by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Hajah Haminah at its new permanent site at the Putrajaya lakeside, Presint 4 on June 14.
A total of 400,000 species of flowers and plants will be displayed at Floria Putrajaya, the seventh since it was first introduced, while 58 garden lots will cater for landscape operators, flower suppliers and entrepreneurs putting up their products and services.
