KUALA LUMPUR: Wanita MCA is holding its first all-women Chinese New Year event here next month.
Movement head Datuk Heng Seai Kie (pic) said the Feb 15 dinner at the Xin Cuisine restaurant in Concorde Hotel will be aimed at enhancing networking and closer ties between the wing and women-based organisations.
They include guilds, clan-based associations, community groups and Barisan Nasional component parties, she told a press conference here yesterday. She said the wing will also organise a dialogue between petty traders and the Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism Ministry to tackle the problems faced by the traders.
She said the meeting will be held soon. Heng said Wanita MCA will also hold programmes to educate consumers on wise spending and savings. On the 15% electricity tariffs hike, the wing urged Tenaga Nasional Bhd to make it gradual and in stages.
Regarding the flash mob on the kangkung issue by Macang Bubuk assemblyman Lee Khai Loon, she said the PKR representative had shown a bad example to youngsters and had instilled hatred for national leaders by disgracing the Prime Minister.
“We strongly condemn the despicable act and will not support such unhealthy political culture,” said Heng, referring to the Jan 15 incident in which Lee and his followers stuffed the vegetable into an effigy of Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
