Ramadhan is around the corner and for the first time, Ramadan bazaar will not be held this year due to Covid-19. But not to worry, because over 3,000 licensed hawkers and petty traders in the city are all set for the new Ramadan e-bazaar concept following the movement control order (MCO) guidelines.

President of the Malaysian Federation of Hawkers and Petty Traders Associations Datuk Seri Rosli Sulaiman mentioned food venders could still do business during the upcoming fasting month through the drive-thru, pack and pick as well as e-hailing delivery to enable Malaysians to enjoy Ramadan Bazaar food. The government is now in the midst of identifying e-hailing companies that are willing to work with the hawkers and petty traders in accordance with the guidelines set by the Health Ministry.

Rosli also said the government will also forge collaboration with more than 400 food truck operations in the city to help the hawkers and petty traders market their products and look into how they can place the food they are selling at the food trucks at any nearby location. Besides that, the government will also be developing a special application to help them to generate income during Ramadan.

With that said, there may be a new norm to enjoy the Ramadan foods and drinks that will begin on 24 April. Do remember to keep an eye on the hygiene as well as keep practicing social distancing while you’re out buying foods or groceries. Stay tuned for more local news updates on TechNave.com!
