Selangor Tekun Madani Carnival in Sg Buloh on March 1

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 24 — The Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Ministry (Kuskop), via the National Entrepreneur Group Economic Fund (Tekun), is organising a three-day Tekun Madani Carnival at Strand Mall, Kota Damansara, beginning March 1.

Deputy Minister Datuk R. Ramanan said the Selangor state-level carnival will be held in collaboration with the Sungai Buloh Parliamentary constituency’s People’s Service Centre.

The purpose of holding the carnival is to make it easier for Selangor’s residents, especially those in Sungai Buloh, to get information about Tekun products, initiatives, and programmes organised by other agencies under Kuskop.

“This carnival will bring the local community, especially the people of Sungai Buloh, closer to information, initiatives, assistance and funding provided by Kuskop and its 10 agencies,” he said in a statement today.

Ramanan, the Sungai Buloh MP, said the carnival also aims to create a business network among participating entrepreneurs for a strong, viable, honest, and progressive Tekun entrepreneur community.

“This carnival allows local entrepreneurs to exhibit and promote their products and services,” he said.

In addition to more than 100 stalls for sales and exhibitions, various interesting programmes and activities would also be held during the three-day carnival.

This includes “Malam Kota Damansara Berselawat”, talks by successful entrepreneurs, the presentation of corporate social responsibility (CSR) Back to School contributions, cooking demonstrations, sports, performances by local artists, demonstrations on the wearing of hijab and make-up, and lucky draws.

In recognition of the successful entrepreneurs, there will be an Entrepreneurship Award presentation to the five best entrepreneurs at the Selangor and Sungai Buloh levels.

For the luck draws, attractive prizes, including two motorcycles, await the lucky visitors.

Meanwhile, Ramanan said various programmes involving agencies under his ministry had been arranged to be organised in the Sungai Buloh parliamentary constituency, including the Madani Sales by the Malaysian Cooperative Commission (SKM), youth programmes, and entrepreneurial talks.

“This is to promote local entrepreneurs and the economy of the local population. Hence, the local community should take advantage of all the programmes carried out by the ministry,” he said.
