An estimated amount of RM20mil is expected to be spent in maintaining proper environ for the pandas. The pandas will be housed in Wetland Park, approx 35kms south of Kaula Lampur. The entire infrastructure will be similar to the natural habitat of pandas. The funds are planned to cover the training costs for staff to handle these gentle creatures, maintaining an air-conditioned sanctuary and importing bamboos from China for feeding them.
I am not interested in starting any political debate over this. In my opinion this definitely is a great opportunity for the locals to know more about the animals and also an added tourist attraction for Malaysia. A unique way to strengthen ties between two countries!
