Groups wants review of hawker free trade zone in Federal Territories

THE Free Trade Zone programme, which was introduced in November 2020 to enable the people to conduct small business in suitable areas in the three Federal Territories, needs to be reviewed in order to meet its real goals, the Malaysian Federation of Hawkers and Traders Association said.

Its president, Rosli Sulaiman, said this because there are many traders and hawkers who are allegedly doing business in unauthorised locations such as on sidewalks, thus blocking pedestrian traffic.
