Accepting the award, Lim said, “LBS has been building homes for Malaysians for the past 27 years. This is a mission for us and it continues to this day because we want to help the nation achieve its agenda of helping more Malaysian’s own homes.
“As proud Malaysians, I believe it is our duty to do our part in helping the nation move forward and achieve greater heights.”
