Low Yat 2, a centre for sales and purchase of telecommunication items which matches the function of Low Yat Plaza located at Bukit Bintang had been proposed to be opened at Jalan Raja Laut.

The centre is expected to fulfil the public needs which was earlier focused at Low Yat Plaza, said Minister of Rural and Regional Development, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

According to the plans proposed by Ismail Sabri, Low Yat 2 will be located on the third floor of the MARA building (Majlis Amanah Rakyat).

“We will develop the floor as soon as possible and we will provide space especially for Malay businessman.

“We will turn it into ‘Low Yat 2’ and we will gather as many suppliers in the building,” said Ismail Sabri who was met after attending the MARA Aidilfitri Open House event here on Tuesday.

The announcement of the proposed Low Yat 2 was made by Ismail Sabri after a brief visit at the MARA building in conjunction with the event.

“We realise the existence of other places which provide similar services, such as Bukit Bintang and the Pertama Complex opposite the MARA building. We, however believe that the public will have more option if they wish to conduct business straight with the suppliers.

“We target 100 percent business from the Malay community. There are currently no Malay suppliers, that is why they are given the leniency,” said Ismail Sabri.

During the event, Ismail Sabri had also presented donations to the orphan children from around Kuala Lumpur.
