Najib launches 1Malaysia Mobile Market


PUTRAJAYA -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak today launched the 1Malaysia Mobile Market (PB1M), a federal government initiative to bring essential goods direct to the middle- and low-income consumer in a move to stave off price increases.

The mobile market is a 16-tonne bus modified for the purpose. It will be accompanied by several small lorries, also modified, and will operate particularly in low-cost housing areas and selected community centres.  

 Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Datuk Seri Noh Omar said in astatement that the prime minister had proposed an allocation of RM3 million to launch the PB1M.    

He said that for a start, the Federal Agriculture Marketing Authority (Fama)planned to introduce the mobile market in the northern, central and southernzones.    

The flag-off of the mobile market today by Najib was witnessed by Deputy PrimeMinister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and other Cabinet ministers at DataranPerdana.  - Bernama
