Melaka to host 51 Ramadan bazaars, nine Aidilfitri bazaars

MELAKA, March 9: Melaka will organise 51 Ramadan bazaars and nine Aidilfitri bazaars during Ramadan, says State Housing, Local Government, Drainage, Climate Change and Disaster Management Committee chairman Datuk Rais Yasin.

He said 23 Ramadan bazaars will be organised within the administration areas of the Melaka Historic City Council (MBMB), with 10 each in the areas of the Hang Tuah Jaya Municipal Council (MPHTJ) and Alor Gajah Municipal Council (MPAG) while eight Ramadan bazaars will be under the Jasin Municipal Council (MPJ).

“For Aidilfitri bazaars, five will be opened within the MBMB area and two each in the areas of MPHTJ and MPAG. This year, we are not facing many problems in organising Ramadan and Aidilfitri bazaars, with almost all lots nearly rented out but there are still some improvements that can be made next year,” he told reporters here today after officiating a ‘Back to School’ assistance programme here.

Rais also urged bazaar organisers to make efforts to promote Visit Melaka Year 2024.
