MALAYSIA - Teruntum assemblyman Chang Hong Seong has reasurred pork sellers at the wet market that their stalls will be maintained in its present premises.

"I was told that the local council had allocated 38 stalls but they were not fully utilised.

"I spoke to the pork sellers who cited several reasons for the under-utilisation of the premises," he said when met recently.

According to The Star, Mr Chang said among the reasons were that some of them had switched to become mobile traders, stiff competition from supermarkets and the reluctance of second generations to inherit the trade.

He said however, business was still flourishing.

"They can still make ends meet and are willing to continue trading and urged the local council to leave them alone."
