IPOH: The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry plans to organise a big-scale carnival next year to enhance the campaign to buy local goods.

Deputy minister Datuk Rosol Wahid wants to see the Malaysia Agriculture, Horticulture, and Agrotourism Exhibition (MAHA) included in the carnival, where retailers could showcase fashion, furniture, batik, automotive, lifestyle, medical and food products.

“To further strengthen local products and services, various shows, exhibitions as well as competitions are planned for the mega carnival next year.

“I have expressed my desire to see local products continue to develop, hence the proposal for a larger scale carnival for our items,” he said at the launch of the Malaysian Products Carnival held at the Mydin Mall Meru Raya here on Oct 1.

The Malaysian Products Carnival here, the first to be held by the ministry, featured 52 traders. This carnival is seen as a precursor to the mega event next year.

From Oct 14 to Nov 3, the Malaysian Products Carnival will be staged at the Angsana Plaza in Johor Baru.

Rosol said many of our products are of international standard, if not better.

“We must give a chance to local entrepreneurs, because there are many products which have made a name internationally.

Rosol told a press conference after the event that Malaysia has been expanding its exports to place more local products in foreign markets.

“As an example, AEON and Lulu hypermarkets have been marketing our products in their chains abroad,” he said.

“The ministry is also intensifying product transformation and development programmes to help local entrepreneurs in terms of product packaging to meet international standards.”
