Motac: No agents appointed for grant applications

PUTRAJAYA, Aug 10 — The Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (Motac) has not appointed any individual or organisation as an agent in applying for the Tourism, Arts and Culture Matching Grant (GPPSB).

The ministry clarified this in a statement today in light of information received that there are individuals claiming to have been appointed as agents for grant applications under the ministry.
