If you were thinking of heading to Setia Alam this weekend for the MYPerodua carnival, you might want to stay home instead as carmaker has decided to postpone the event in light; or the lack of sunlight, of the worsening haze situation nationwide.
It was supposed to start tomorrow and conclude on Sunday; 20-22 September 2019, at the Setia City Oval Lawn but seeing the harmful air quality, it will be shelved until further notice.
“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 Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
“We apologise whole-heartedly 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.
The main attraction at the event was due to be the launch of the facelifted Perodua Axia that we reported on a while back. Fret not, the launch will still take place and we’ll have the full details tomorrow.
