KUCHING: The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry (KPDNHEP) will continue to do its best to ensure a high level of satisfaction for both consumers and traders.
The ministry wants to take care of all stakeholders, from the consumers to traders and businesses.
Consumerism is very dynamic, but through advocacy and consultation, the ministry aims to create wise consumers.
“We’re driven to look after the interests of all stakeholders.
“As for the domestic trade, we want to create and promote a conducive business environment by ensuring that it is easy for traders and businesses to do business. Through a conducive environment, more businesses can be established.
“When there are many businesses established, there will be more job opportunities that can help the people, especially with the Covid-19 pandemic,” said its minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi.
The minister was speakingduring an engagement session with members of the Sarawak media at a hotel here on Thursday (Oct 21).
On a separate issue, Nanta said the ministry would include the Malaysian Family or ‘Keluarga Malaysia’ concept in its programmes and initiatives in support of the federal government’s policy.
During the media engagement session, Nanta handed over a RM10,000 contribution to the Federation of Sarawak Journalists Association (FSJA) chairwoman Jacqueline David for the upcoming Kenyalang Journalism Award (KJA) 2021.
He expressed hope for the existing good cooperation between the ministry and members of Sarawak to continue.
The good rapport was crucial in efforts by the ministry to disseminate information to the public, he said.
“We are very fortunate to have good relations with the media in Sarawak, Sabah and Peninsular Malaysia. The media plays an important role not only for the ministry but the government as a whole because it is a reliable source of information that can be depended on.
He said the ministry dealt with a lot of matters and issues relating to the people.
