SEREMBAN: Hawkers and petty traders who rent out their government-owned premises to others, particularly foreigners, have been warned to stop doing so.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said he was upset to hear that some traders preferred to earn rent instead of running the units themselves.
“Some of them use their political connections to obtain these units but would immediately rent them out once they are given the keys.
“This really upsets me because the Government spends a lot of money to build such business premises and promote micro-enterprises, only for some irresponsible people to rent it to others, especially foreigners,” he said at the national Hawkers and Petty Traders Day celebration here yesterday.
Najib also endorsed a move by the Negri Sembilan government which had decided to waive licence fees for hawkers and petty operators for the next three years.
