PUTRAJAYA, Sept 19 (Bernama) — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak is expected to make several important announcements at the 1Malaysia rural entrepreneurs’ carnival on Sept 22, Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal said Monday.
Najib is scheduled to open the carnival then.
The prime minister is also scheduled to give out the “Excellent Entrepreneur” and “Rural Economic Financing Scheme” awards.
“This year, we received so many applications for the carnival that we had to turn away some as the site can only accommodate 500 participants,” he said after the ministry’s Aidilfitri open house, here.
The five-day carnival starts on Wednesday at the 1Malaysia Mall, Precinct 2, Putrajaya. It will be on from 10 am to 10 pm.
The activities include top spinning, kite flying, flower arrangement, cooking competition and children’s colouring contest.
