We are boleh, but for wrong reason

Not a surprise to rate KL is riskest city in the world with Musa Hasan as Police chief. Ah Longs, Mat Rempits, motobike snapped thieves and illegal workers are found all over the KL city.

BUT police is super-efficient when it come down to opposition.

KL among top riskiest offshore places, says survey

NEW DELHI: Kuala Lumpur is listed among the top five riskiest offshore locations in the world while Singapore is in the top five safest locations in a worldwide survey.

The riskiest and safest lists are published in the 2009 edition of the Black Book of Outsourcing, brought out every year by US-based Brown-Wilson Group.

The annual publication is considered a major independent analysis and advisory research for the outsourcing players and investors globally.

The rankings of safest and riskiest places are based on factors like high terrorist or rebel target threats, uncontrolled environment waste and pollution, corruption and organised crime, unstable currency, geopolitical conditions and unsecured networks and technology.

In the riskiest 25 list, Bogota in Columbia is at the top followed by Bangkok in Thailand, Johanesburgh in South Africa, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia and Kingston in Jamaica among the top five.

In the safest 25 list, Singapore is followed by Dublin (Ireland), Santiago (Chile), Krakow/Warsaw (Poland) and Toronto/Montreal (Canada) in the top five.

The three Chinese cities Beijing, Shenzen and Shanghai have been ranked as 9th, 22nd and 24th safest destinations respectively.

India may have been hailed for long as the world’s top outsourcing destination, but the new study has named as many as eight cities in the country among the world’s 25 riskiest places.

The national capital region comprising Delhi Gurgaon and Noida has earned the dubious distinction of being the worst offshoring destination within the country, the Press Trust of India (PTI) quoted a survey in the annual Black Book of Outsourcing, as saying.

The NCR is followed by Mumbai as the second riskiest offshoring hub within India, while Kolkata has been ranked as least riskiest in the country.

The other domestic cities named in the global list of 25 riskiest offshoring destinations include Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune and Chandigarh.

In the overall global list, NCR has been ranked as sixth most riskiest, Mumbai ninth, Chandigarh 15th, Pune 20th, Chennai 21st, Bangalore 23rd, Hyderabad 24th and Kolkata the 25th most riskiest in the world.

Meanwhile, no Indian city has managed to find a place on a separate list of 25 safest offshoring destinations.

In terms of terrorism threats Mumbai has been ranked as the location with the highest risk, followed by Delhi NCR and Jerusalem in Israel.

Further, Delhi NCR has been ranked as the riskiest place when it comes to heightening transnational and geopolitical concerns.

Bangalore, another leading outsourcing destination in the country have been ranked as the riskiest place in terms of uncontrolled environmental waste and pollution.

While India accounts for the maximum number of cities in the 25 riskiest places, while China and Mexico lead the tally in the 25 safest list with three cities each.

There is just one Chinese city, Dalian, among the 25 riskiest places at 12th place.

The three Chinese cities Beijing, Shenzen and Shanghai have been ranked as 9th, 22nd and 24th safest destinations respectively. – Bernama

Time to officially name Putrajaya as the Capital of Malaysia, at least as a face saving act.

I don’t want to be treated as an International Pariah or Terrorist when visiting other Countries.

The police has to clean up all dirts. There is no hope too see any improvement under Musa Hasan and BN corrup government.

Indonesia used to be the most corrupt country several years ago, but Jakarta is not listed as world top 5 sin city.

I was rob by Indian gang in Cheras last year.
