Baskets of mandarin oranges for 30 fishermen

Fishermen living near the PSI project site receiving mandarin oranges in conjunction with Chinese New Year.

PUSAT Perkhidmatan Setempat Nelayan (PPSN) presented mandarin oranges to 30 fishermen living near the Penang South Islands (PSI) project site.

Penang Infrastructure Corporation (PIC) chief executive officer Datuk Seri Farizan Darus said, “For the Chinese, giving mandarin oranges means wishing the recipient good fortune.”

The fishermen who received the mandarin oranges were from Batu Maung, Gertak Sanggul, Telok Tempoyak, Seri Jerjak and Teluk Kumbar.

Also present at the event was Penang Island City councillor Mohd Faruk Abdul Rahman.

PIC oversees the operations of PPSN that was set up by the Penang government in 2016 as the one-stop centre for the local community and fishermen to seek information on the PSI project.

PPSN has three offices in Permatang Damar Laut, Sungai Batu and Gertak Sanggul.
