NATIONAL news agency Bernama will be celebrating its 50th anniversary with a grand dinner in Kuala Lumpur that will be attended by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
Bernama general manager Datuk Zulkefli Salleh, who announced this on Monday, launched a commemorative stamp to mark the agency’s Golden Jubilee.
The 60 sen stamp, which depicts the KL Twin Towers and Wisma Bernama, can be bought in sets of 20 for RM30, and are available at Wisma Bernama.
Zulkefli said that among the highlights of the dinner at Dewan Perdana Felda on May 22 would be the presentation of an award for the designer of the Bernama logo.
“Bernama continues to be relevant in the age of social media as we provide confirmed and verified news when people are flooded with fake news and rumours,” he said.
