‘Buy Malaysian Product’ campaign to be revived

The “Buy Malaysian Product” campaign which stresses on patriotism will be revived next month or in May, said Domestic Trade, Cooperative and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

Themed “Patriotic Consumers”, the campaigned aimed at getting Malaysians to love, buy and used local products, he told reporters after launching the Q292 mobile phone, an Islamic themed mobile phone produced by Ad-Deen Technology Sdn Bhd, at the company’s presmises here today.

Ismail Sabri said Malaysians should emulate the people of South Korea who give first priority to products made by their own country.

“The spinoffs of using local goods are very high, among them it helps create jobs for Malaysians, reduce dependency on imports besides helping the local manufacturing industry,” he said.

The Q292 model, which retails at RM399, has features like the direction of Mecca, prayer times and various prayers. — Bernama
