PORT KLANG: A mega sale offering goods such as cars, electrical items, mattresses, rice and oil at discounted prices will be organised by the Customs Department in conjunction with the World Customs Day celebration this year. 

Some 34 booths would be set up for the special sale from Jan 25 to 28 at Dataran Shah Alam, next to the Quality Hotel in Shah Alam, between 10am and 9pm daily. 

State Customs Department director Datuk Wazir Muaz said the sale would serve as a unique way for the department to give something back to the public for the co-operation they had extended. 

“We wanted to have an event in which the public could participate. The mega sale seemed appropriate as the public could enjoy great bargains for selected goods and food items on a first-come, first-served basis,” Wazir said yesterday. 

He said the highlight of the World Customs Day programme would be the official opening on Monday by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Tuanku Syed Putra Jamalulail at Dataran Kemerdekaan, Shah Alam. 

Selangor's Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah and Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo would also attend the event. 

The King would present special awards to honour outstanding Customs Department officers and companies that made prompt tax payments.  

A special exhibition would be held at the Grand Blue Wave Hotel in Shah Alam to commemorate the event. 

“We will also release specially-marked balloons on the day of launching. Those who manage to get hold of them would receive a prize. 

“We expect the balloons to reach the outskirts so it would give the department a chance to mingle with the rural folk as well,” he added.
