MANJUNG: A total of 30 traders received the keys to my kiosk from the Manjung Municipal Council (MPM), located on Jalan Venice Raya 2 here.
This strategic business location is near Taman Manjung Point.
The myKIOSK project serves as a facility for small vendors with green technology functions powered by solar energy and adheres to the 3S values (Safe, Uniform, and Comfortable).
The President of MPM, Syamsul Hazeman Md Salleh, stated that the provision of these kiosks is an MPM initiative approved by the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (KPKT).
“The opening of myKIOSK reflects MPM’s concern for small vendors to enhance income-generating opportunities and boost the local economy in the Manjung district.
“MPM hopes that traders will maintain a positive image in terms of cleanliness, cheerfulness, and compliance with the regulations and ownership agreements that have been set,” he said.
He previously officiated the key handover ceremony to the selected traders.
Also present was the Head of the Licensing and Enforcement Department of MPM, Mohamad Shahril Salihan.
The kiosk has been operational since last week, with a monthly fee of only RM40.
The types of sales involving these 30 traders include traditional pastries, lunch dishes, various hipster coffees, Malay cuisine, noodle-based dishes, Western cuisine, pastries, and other beverages.
Meanwhile, one of the traders, Muhammad Arif Danial, who sells coffee, described the myKIOSK project as the best initiative to help small traders.
“I appreciate MPM’s efforts in facilitating traders and providing comfort to us.
“The government has provided many facilities, but the key is the effort of the traders themselves,” he said.
