Print Email

BERA, May 1 (Bernama) -- The Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperative and Consumerism with the cooperation of the Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority will build community markets or Pakar throughout the country.
Its minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said initially, 20 community markets, each costing RM2 million, would be built this year and their sites had been identified.
He said the markets would accommodate petty traders and hawkers who were selling their goods at farmers' and night markets and construction would begin in June.
The community markets will be equipped with facilities for wet and dry goods, a management office, a prayer room, toilets, a car park and footstalls, he told reporters after opening the Champion of the People Programme and Kafa Carnival which was jointly organised by the Bera Umno division, Pahang Special Affairs Department and non-governmental organisations here Sunday.
In another development, Ismail Sabri said the government had approved RM60,000 in loans for shop and workshop owners, whose premises had been upgraded, nationwide.
"The new-look premises have registered better sales for they are more appealing to customers.
"For example, some sundry shops involved used to earn less than RM3,000 a month but after the makeover, their sales increased to RM4,000 or more," he said, adding that the ministry aimed to makeover at least 500 sundry shops this year.
