GEORGE TOWN, March 13 (Bernama) -- The Ministry of Agriculture and Food Industry (MOA) has postponed the My Best Buy Young Agropreneur Carnival due to COVID-19.

It was scheduled to take place at Dataran Dato' Sheikh Ahmad in Kangar, Perlis from March 13-15.

In a statement today, the MOA said the decision was in compliance with the Ministry of Health (MOH) advice to defer all events that involve crowds to control the spread of the coronavirus.

“COVID-19 has been declared a pandemic (by the World Health Organisation) and for this reason, MOA must take proactive steps to prevent its transmission for the well-being of farmers and others," it said.

MOA said a new date for the carnival will be announced in due course.
