PKR-controlled Ampng Jaya Council praises MBKS (under BN Sarawak) for proper planning and good environment
Delegation from Selangor visits Stutong Community Market

WARM GREETINGS: Muhamad shaking hands with a hawker.
KUCHING: The delegation of 35 members from Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (AJMC) Selangor visited Stutong Community Market here yesterday as part of their study trip.
In town to exchange ideas with the local councils, they were accompanied by Kuching City South (MBKS) Mayor Datuk James Chan.
AJMC chairman Datuk Muhamad Yacob said he found the market clean and properly managed.
“It was good to see the close relationship between the hawkers and MBKS as well as between hawkers and customers,” he commented.
There were objections to the market when it was built in 2008 but the councils and traders came to an agreement.
“Stutong Community Market looks like a mall while the one in Ampang Jaya is smaller,” the AJMC chairman said in jest.
He said Ampang Jaya is 25 to 30 years old with a population of about 600,000.
Compare that to Kuching’s 200,000 population which makes Ampang Jaya look sort of crowded.
He said Kuching city folks are lucky that it is still a spacious green city.
“Kuching city is properly planned. After a few visits to Kuching, I find the environment has improved including roads and surroundings,” he said.
His delegation arrived in Kuching on Dec 10 for the three-day trip. After visiting Stutong Community Market, they moved to Satok Market.
They left for Ampang Jaya yesterday.
