PM meets p-hailing company reps on Aug 8

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 1 — Representatives of food and parcel delivery companies (p-hailing) will meet Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on August 8, said the Transport Ministry.

In a statement today, the ministry said the prime minister had requested the meeting after speaking to p-hailing riders on July 22 to understand the challenges they face.

“The unity government is mindful of p-hailing workers’ welfare, and is committed to ensuring the sustainability of the p-hailing industry’s development in line with the concept of Malaysia Madani,” it said.

On July 22, Anwar promised to meet p-hailing company representatives to seek better commission rates for riders, which the riders said are currently too low.

The prime minister said he wants clarification from the companies on the situation, which is burdensome to p-hailing riders.
