In conjunction with Chinese New Year, Ipoh City Mayor Dato’ Zamri Man hosted a luncheon for Perak press members yesterday.
The event offered an opportunity for the Mayor to get to know members of the local media fraternity better, and at the same time, enabled the press to forge closer ties with those who represent the City Council, such as City Councillors and department heads.
It was also a gesture to thank the local media for working closely with the Ipoh City Council over the years, particularly these past seven months since his appointment as Mayor on July 1, 2015.
Based on statistics compiled, a total of 1307 articles about Ipoh city have been published over this period; in newspapers, web portals, television segments, and also other publications.
In his address at the luncheon, the Mayor believed that the balanced feedback from the community highlighted in these articles had been beneficial to the city.
He said, “Ipoh is better known now and it looks like more people are coming to our city, judging from the traffic volume on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. This is, of course, good for the economy of Ipoh! Let’s strive to do more, and better in the months to come.”
