KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 1 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has declared December 3 as the annual Malaysia Batik Day.

In a special address which was broadcast via RTM’s TV1 and social media tonight, he said the government hoped the declaration would encourage all citizens including the private sector and the multiracial community to wear the Malaysian batik.

He said the move was in line with the Keluarga Malaysia (Malaysian Family) concept, whereby the people of all races unite in donning the uniqueness and beauty of the local batik.

“I believe that the declaration of the Malaysia Batik Day can also be the catalyst to strengthen the local batik craft industry and the country’s local batik production chain,” he said.

He explained that the selection of the date, which had been agreed upon by the Cabinet on November 26, was a sign of appreciation for the contribution, support and interest in batik craft shown by Tun Endon Mahmood, the late wife of the fifth prime minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. — Bernama
