MARUDI: Assistant Minister for Local Government Datu Dr Penguang Mangil has commended Marudi District Council for setting up its Night Market or ‘Pamata’ to enable locals to sell their produce in a regulated area.

Penguang who is also Marudi assemblyman recently declared open the night market which began operation in January this year. He described the night market as a good meeting place for locals and visitors to Marudi who would enjoy the local delicacies such as roasted fish and delicious wild meat on sale.

Penguang urged the Marudi District Council under its new chairman Edward Mendai to look for a permanent site for its Pasar Tamu which could be designed with Orang Ulu motifs to become an icon for Marudi.

“This will attract small entrepreneurs and visitors to Marudi,” he said, especially once the Miri-Marudi road, waterfront and Fort Hose projects were completed.

Among those present at the function were Datin Monica Ukong Jaya, Mendai, Marudi district officer Mackos Sibong and local councillors.
