KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 18 – Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has never issued business licences to any foreigner doing business in the vicinity of Jalan Petaling, here. Minister of Federal Territories Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the ministry would take action against local enterpreneurs who rented out their sites to foreigners to carry out business.
“I have personally walked down Jalan Petaling and the DBKL enforcement officers had also carried out a survey on the foreign traders in the area, so action will be taken soon,” he told reporters, here today. He said the plan to provide a new area for youth enterpreneurs aged 40 and below, to be known as ‘Jalan Petaling 2’, was also being implemented.
Meanwhile, Tengku Adnan said the proposal to build the Sri Lalithambikai Alayam temple complex at Precinct 20, Putrajaya, was part of the efforts to attract tourists to the area. He said the complex would not only have a temple but would also be equipped with a multipurpose hall and library that could be used by the public.
