Perodua has announced that the MYPerodua Nation carnival scheduled to be held this weekend (20 – 22 September) at the Setia City Oval Lawn in Setia Alam has been postponed. As a People First organisation, the company has decided to postpone the MYPerodua Nation carnival until further notice, due to the haze situation affecting the country.
“The Air Pollutant Index (API) in the vicinity has been reported to be in excess of 200, which is very unhealthy. Perodua cannot, and will not, put the health and well-being of its valued customers, visitors and staff on duty at risk,” said Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
“We apologise whole-hardheartedly for the inconvenience and disappointment caused by the postponement of MYPerodua Nation. We are studying all possible alternatives and will revert on the event’s status in due course,” he added.
In the meantime, it is advisable to wear a N95 rated mask or respirator when stepping out, and those who are sensitive to pollutants should stay indoors when possible.
