“The success of any project starts with a good idea. HSL wants to have more open competitions because we believe in the value of good ideas. Competitions are progressive in nature and among the best ways to uncover new talent,” HSL managing director Datuk Paul Yu Chee Hoe said.

余志和说,之所以选择‘AIR’这个名字, 是因为它代表着‘我们头顶的空气’, 而且在马来语中,‘air’的意思是水,代表流经该片土地的河流。
