Other than visiting the King of England, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah will officiate at the inauguration of the Malaysian-owned Battersea Power Station.
After being out of use for many years, the Battersea Power Station has finally been fixed up. It is now a popular place to visit for both Londoners and tourists who want to see this famous Grade II* listed landmark and its more than 100 shops, restaurants, and other places to have fun.
The £9 billion ($1 = RM5.14) Battersea Power Station will be officially launched on October 12 and open to the public on October 14.
On October 14, a five-day “Festival of Power” will begin to honor the building’s unique history and contributions to British culture in honor of this important event.
New Straits Times stated that during his special visit to the UK last year, His Majesty expressed joy in the capacity and success of Malaysian-owned firms and government agencies managing businesses and investments.
