KUANTAN: Members of the Cabinet will hold its meeting in Kuantan early next month and efforts are in the pipeline to beautify the town.
Teruntum assemblyman Chang Hong Seong said tentatively, the VIPs and their entourage would congregate in Kuantan from Feb 8 to 9 for the high-profile meeting.
“I was informed that Kuantan will be the first town for the Cabinet members to hold their meeting.
“Subsequently, they may travel to other major towns nationwide for the purpose.
“As such, we hope to leave a lasting impression and beautify the town to welcome the rare and historic congregation,” he said here recently.
Chang added that he met Kuantan Municipal Council president Datuk Zulkifli Yaacob to discuss plans to decorate the town with lanterns.
He said Zulkifli was supportive of the move and agreed to put up more lanterns in view of the coming Chinese New Year celebrations.
“We hope traders will also give their support and help out in the efforts to refurbish the town and create a celebrative atmosphere.
“Personally, I am in the midst of looking for sponsors to put up more lanterns in my constituency so that the celebration this year will be more lively and vibrant,” he said.
