A mega sale to sell F1 race

The Malaysian GP Sale is scheduled to kick off on March 6 and will run for 37 days as a back-to-back event with the upcoming Formula 1 race.

The Malaysian F1 Grand Prix will be held on April 2 - April 4.

Grand event: Ng talking at the press conference to promote the Malaysian GP Sale Thursday.

Tourism Minster Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen said the events to be held would include the Malaysia International Shoe Festival and KL Sunday 1Malaysia Family Fair at various shopping malls around the country.

She also said a Malaysian shopping taskforce would be set up as part of the plan to re-structure the Malaysian Mega Sale.

“The Malaysian Mega Sale has been on for 10 years. Now we want to move forward to structure it properly. Shopping is always structured within Tourism Malaysia,” she added.

“The ministry will look at policies and inter-agencies connectivity. For example, we will invite Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) to sit on the taskforce to do city decoration,’’ she told a press conference held at the Menara Dato’ Onn at PWTC yesterday.

“According to a newspaper report, Mita wrote a letter to the ministry dated Feb 8 this year, and because they didn’t get any reply they insisted on proceeding with the lion dance show.
“I must clarify, if there is no letter, there’s no answer,” she said, adding that Mita had only sent an invitation to a press conference at Matic on Feb 11 to announce the lion dance show.
