ExpatGo Destination Guide: Putrajaya

Putrajaya, or officially the Federal Territory of Putrajaya, is the federal administrative centre of Malaysia and the seat of government since 1999.

Kuala Lumpur remains Malaysia’s national capital, and is the seat of the King and Parliament as well as the home of the country’s commercial and financial centre. Putrajaya was the brainchild of former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad. In 2001, Putrajaya became Malaysia’s third Federal Territory after Kuala Lumpur and Labuan.

Named after the first Malaysian Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra, the territory is entirely enclaved within the Sepang District of the state of Selangor. Putrajaya is also a part of MSC Malaysia, a special economic zone that covers Klang Valley.
