24 August 2019 – The Ipoh City Council (MBI) and the MBI Retirees Association (PERMAI) have made history assembling more than 500 MBI Retirees comprising Former Mayors, City Councillors, City Secretaries, Directors, MBI Officers and Staff as well as MBI personnel in a Social Gathering this evening at the Gunung Lang Recreation Park.

The event, officiated by Ipoh Mayor Dato’ Ahmad Suaidi Abdul Rahim, was the first programme organised by PBT Malaysia.

Among the former Mayors present were Dato’ Seri Talaat Husain, Dato’ Rafiai Moktar who is also PERMAI President, Dato’ Hasan Nawawi, Dato’ Roshidi Hashim and Dato’ Harun Rawi.

The close cooperation and firm commitment between MBI and PERMAI has ensured the programme went smoothly and achieved its objectives to strengthen relationships in a relaxing atmosphere besides establishing a platform to help in achieving MBI’s aspiration in making Ipoh a Smart City.

The experience and knowledge of all the retirees should not be wasted but must be used for the benefit of developing Ipoh City.

Hopefully, this Gathering will be a catalyst to Ipoh City Council’s success to continue to be recognised and acknowledged as the Best PBT in Malaysia.
