KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 6 (Bernama) -- The concept of staging a ‘carnival’ in conjunction with the 2023 Hawkers and Petty Traders Day (HPPK 2023) celebration over three days, starting with tomorrow’s grand launch at Buhavan Square in Penampang, Sabah, is a recognition of their contribution to the national economy.

The Ministry of Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives (KUSKOP) said the theme for HPPK 2023 was ‘Hawkers and Petty Traders: The Pulse of the Madani Economy’ as the group was part of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (PMKS) - the backbone and heart of the Madani economy.

“The chosen theme is in line with the concept of hawkers and petty traders who are able to make a very meaningful contribution in driving the country’s economic growth.

“This group of hawkers and petty traders will continue to stimulate competition, generate jobs, encourage domestic demand and be leaders for sustainability of overall economic growth,” KUSKOP said in a statement today.

It said the HPPK 2023 Carnival was expected to be officiated by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim tomorrow.

The carnival will feature stalls by hawkers and petty traders, guest entrepreneurs as well as food truck entrepreneurs offering food and drinks, handicrafts, clothes and other items.

Besides exhibitions from ministries and agencies of the Federal and state governments and the private sector, it will also feature interactive discussions between the agencies and selected entrepreneurs including the MyMall Onboarding Session, which is an integrated online business platform, as well as service counters.

Not to be overlooked are activities for other segments of society such as the Kelab Nuri colouring contest, karaoke competition, zumba, cooking competition and workshop, Mobile Legend and treasure hunt.

KUSKOP added that visitors, especially entrepreneurs and would-be entrepreneurs, could seek face-to-face advice, assistance or clarification from ministries or agencies that had opened booths in conjunction with HPPK 2023.

Meanwhile, KUSKOP announced that among the ministry's long-term plans to help the growth of hawkers and petty traders in Malaysia was the introduction of the 2023-2027 Hawkers and Petty Traders Development Plan (P3PK) which is a strategic planning document.

The P3PK 2023-2027 is designed around five cores supported by 17 strategies and 29 initiatives believed to add value to the government’s intervention in empowering the community of hawkers and small traders.
