KUALA LUMPUR: The decision to lift the conditional movement control order in most districts and states nationwide will allow the business sector to reopen and stimulate domestic economic activities.
Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi (pic) said the decision would enable the continuation of the ministry’s activities and initiatives such as the Buy Malaysian Products Campaign (KBBM) and the Mega Sales Programme (PJM) launched in July apart from the Domestic Franchise Development Tour programme.
“The ministry will be actively promoting KBBM and PJM via the mass media and social media to encourage manufacturers and entrepreneurs to produce more quality products and services at reasonable prices, ” he said in statement yesterday.
Nanta said the ministry was also proud with the animation series, Upin & Ipin – Barang Baik, Barang Kita (Episode 14) that was specially produced to promote KBBM and PJM, as it recorded more than five million views on YouTube last week.
He said the effort was the ministry’s innovative approach to promote the initiatives among the people, including children.
Apart from that, he said all state ministry offices would also be conducting the same initiatives such as 2021 Back to School campaign, as a programme to assist victims of disasters, foodbanks for Institution of Higher Learning students as well as monitoring and inspecting business premises.
On the postponement of cases under the Tribunal for Consumer Claims Malaysia, Nanta said an action plan was being established for implementation. — Bernama
