Deputy Federal Territories and Urban Well-being Minister Datuk M Saravanan said on Tuesday, Jan 4 the project — which covers a stretch of Lorong P Ramlee, and is about 95% complete — involved traders of all races selling an assortment of local products such as food, souvenirs and handicraft.
"This new tourism spot, construction of which started in 2006, will be completed soon and the ministry is currently identifying problems in terms of the scope of business so as to give priority to bumiputeras and the other races," he told reporters after visiting the project site in Jalan Pinang and Jalan Bukit Bintang, here.
"We want to portray to international tourists Malaysia as the face of Asia and a country which has a unique identity," he said.
Saravanan said the 450-metre sidewalk had been turned into a chic tourist destination which offered exclusive business premises such as shops, cafes and restaurants.
He said the ministry hoped that the project would be comparable to Bintang Walk along Jalan Bukit Bintang, which was one of the most happening spots in the city, and help draw more foreign tourists to the country. — Bernama
