MANJUNG: The initiatives undertaken by the Manjung Municipal Council (MPM) to be a trader- and small-business-friendly local authority are evident in the streamlined process for vendor license applications.
Through the MyManjung PPHS application, applications can now be submitted instantly.
Additionally, MPM has introduced MyKiosk to accommodate 42 vendors along Jalan Venice Raya and Jalan Gapis Seri Manjung. Transforming a traditional ground-based vendor site, MyKiosk provides a more comfortable commercial space.
In Kg Koh, the environment around the old market has been developed to accommodate 30 small business stalls, each measuring 8×10 feet.
Further enhancements include the commercial space in Beruas town, specifically focusing on activities during the morning and night markets.
MPM has also collaborated with non-governmental entrepreneurial associations in the region and various government agencies.
This collaboration aims to sustain the continuity of 13-night markets in the municipal area involving 1,141 small-scale traders.
The markets are located in Pantai Remis, Pekan Beruas, Sitiawan, Kampung Koh, Bandar Baru Setiawan, Seri Manjung, Teluk Muroh, Kampung Dato Seri Kamarudin, Ayer Tawar, and Kampung Sitiawan.
