20 events lined up for state-level National Day


THE state government through Tourism Perak will organise 20 programmes in conjunction with National Day 2018 on Aug 31.

State Tourism, Arts and Culture Committee chairman Tan Kar Hing said the state’s arts and culture programmes would be held on weekends from Aug 12.

He said apart from celebrating Merdeka, the programmes were also aimed at promoting the Malaysia Games (Sukma) 2018 in Perak next month.

Sama-sama (togetherness) will be the theme for the programmes to illustrate Malaysia’s multi-cultural society that has always been our unique identity and strength.

“Among the programmes are ‘Sama-sama Talk’, ‘Sama-sama Daki’, ‘Sama-sama Zumba’ and ‘Sama-sama Gema’ that will be held around Ipoh city including in the Old Town, Taman Dr Seenivasagam and Kinta Riverfront,” he told reporters at a press conference at the Perak Darul Ridzuan Building in Ipoh.

Those interested in becoming volunteers for the programmes can download the form at www.samasamaperak.my.

Meanwhile, Perak will host the national-level e-sports championship next year.

State Youth and Sports Committee chairman Lee Chuan How said the championship would provide a platform for e-sports enthusiasts to promote their talent.

E-sports will be demonstrated at the 18th Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang, Indonesia, before it is made an official medal sport at the 2022 Asian Games. — Bernama
