Meanwhile, Najib said the Council also discussed the "breakout strategy" for micro enterprises which will be streamlined further, to provide incentives and encouragement to improve productivity in the sector.

He said the Council had also discussed a working paper by Kuala Lumpur City Hall to develop six hawker centres, to be given a new lease of life.

The hawker centres are at the Bandar Tun Razak Commercial Community Centre, Razak, the Jalan Usahawan Hawker Centre, the Taman Maluri Food Court, the Taman Setiawangsa Food Court, the Selera Damai Food Court and the Mega Food Court.

"We have decided on a new approach, to project a model which is better and based on the development concept, such as that for the mini Urban Transformation Centre(UTC) with the presence of Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia.

"We also decided on a strategic alliance with the private sector so that the appearance of the hawker centre, the level of cleanliness and other characteristics can be incorporated into the facility.

"With this, the hawker centres will have a better attraction compared to previously," Najib said.
