KR1M 2.0 is here to stay, says Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi on March 21, 2018. — Sunpix by Amirul Syafiq Mohd Din
KUALA LUMPUR: The government is absorbing the transportation costs for 1Malaysia People's Shops (KR1M 2.0) products to streamline their prices nationwide, said Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

The Deputy Prime Minister said this was necessary to ensure that the product prices, that are sold below market value, were enjoyed by all Malaysians, including Sabah and Sarawak.
He, however, declined to disclose how much the government allocates annually for this purpose.

"We are putting our efforts in coordinating the pricing, especially for Sabah and Sarawak, by giving financial assistance to not only reduce the cost of transport but the cost of distribution as well.

"By putting some allocation for transport companies to transport these products, it shows that our effort has shown good result by reducing the price of goods below the market price," he told a press conference after launching the latest KR1M 2.0 store at KK Super Mart, Terminal Bersepadu Selatan, here, today.

The store is among the 52 KR1M 2.0 stores nationwide that have either begun operations since Feb 21 or would be launching soon.

Ahmad Zahid said the recently abolished cabotage policy in the country since June 1 last year would also help maintain KR1M 2.0 prices at below market value in Sabah and Sarawak.

He also vowed that KR1M 2.0 stores would not meet a similar fate as KR1M 1.0, claiming that they are not seasonal and are here to stay permanently.

"Definitely, it will be sustainable (compared to KR1M 1.0), because we have studied the proposal tabled by Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin and a few of its financial implications.

"We also reckon that the element of negotiating the prices with manufacturers and producers have helped bring down the prices," he said.

Different from KR1M 1.0, which repackaged items and sell them at lower prices, the second generation stores sell branded items using their original packaging and sell them below the market value.

KR1M 2.0 products are also sold at selected, existing supermarkets, convenience stores and sundry shops, compared to standalone KR1M shops previously.

KUALA LUMPUR, 21 Mac — Kerajaan menyerap kos pengangkutan barangan yang dijual di bawah inisiatif Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia (KR1M) 2.0 bertujuan menyelaraskan harga jualan di seluruh negara, kata timbalan perdana menteri Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Ahmad Zahid, yang juga pengerusi Majlis Tindakan Sara Hidup Negara, berkata peruntukan khas kepada syarikat pengangkutan diberi supaya rakyat di Sabah dan Sarawak turut dapat menikmati harga produk yang berpatutan seperti di Semenanjung.

“Ia satu langkah proaktif kerajaan dan meliputi juga dasar kabotaj dengan penyelarasan harga dari segi pengurangan kos pengangkutan untuk barangan KR1M 2.0 yang dijual di Sabah dan Sarawak.

“Kerajaan berusaha menyelaraskan  harga khususnya untuk outlet di Sabah dan Sarawak,” katanya dan menurutnya kerajaan mengambil pelbagai langkah untuk menyediakan bantuan kewangan dalam usaha mengurangkan kos pengangkutan serta pengedaran.

Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang akhbar selepas melancarkan outlet KR1M 2.0 kategori kedai serbaneka di KK Super Mart, Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) di sini, hari ini.

Ahmad Zahid menegaskan pelaksanaan KR1M 2.0 untuk membantu rakyat membeli barangan keperluan asas pada harga berpatutan bukan inisiatif bermusim.

“Kerajaan berharap langkah-langkah dilakukan perdana menteri (Datuk Seri Najib Razak)  ini akan dapat diteruskan. KR1M 2.0, Insya-Allah kekal dengan barang-barang yang boleh kita uruskan terus dari pengeluar, akan kita bincangkan agar harga di bawah pasaran dapat diteruskan,” katanya.

Melihat reaksi positif masyarakat terhadap inisiatif KR1M 2.0, Ahmad Zahid berkata kerajaan berhasrat memperluaskannya ke Sabah dan Sarawak termasuk di kawasan pedalaman kedua-dua negeri itu.

Penjualan barangan KR1M 2.0 dibuat menggunakan bungkusan asal produk berjenama dengan harga kompetitif, dan bukan lagi produk dalaman khas sendiri yang berbungkus putih seperti yang dilakukan sebelum ini.

Pemilik outlet atau perniagaan yang terlibat dengan KR1M 2.0 ialah pasar raya atau kedai sedia ada yang memasang logo KR1M 2.0 sebagai menandakan premis berkenaan menjual produk KR1M.

Sebanyak 52 outlet yang menjual barangan KR1M telah dan akan dibuka dan sasarannya ialah  3,000 outlet dalam tempoh tiga tahun akan datang. Ia kini beroperasi di negeri seperti Selangor, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang dan Kuala Lumpur.

KR1M 2.0 dilancarkan bulan lepas dengan beberapa pembaharuan dan penambahbaikan terhadap skim lama. —  Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR (March 21): While logistics costs have been the main concern for the previous 1Malaysia People's Shops (KR1M 1.0), the government will help reduce transportation costs for the new KR1M 2.0, said Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference here today, Ahmad Zahid said the government will be absorbing the transportation costs to help synchronise the prices of goods in Peninsular Malaysia as well as Sabah and Sarawak.

"Definitely, it (KR1M 2.0) will have a very sustainable price," he said, explaining that the government will be negotiating with manufacturers and producers to bring down prices of the goods to below market prices.

He highlighted that there are no direct investments from the government; however, in the effort to synchronise the prices for the whole nation, the government will not only be reducing the cost of transportation but also the cost of distribution.

However, he did not disclose how much the government will be absorbing.

"Their cost of transportation is one of the elements of escalation of price. Hence, the government is taking special effort to not only maintain the offered price below market price; we do not compromise on the quality and branding of the product," said Ahmad Zahid, adding that the abolished cabotage policy in June last year will help reduce cost.

He also added that the government will be setting some allocation for transport companies to transport all the products.

The second-generation KR1M, spearheaded by Perbadanan Nasional Bhd, was launched today with new strategic partner KK Super Mart.

Currently, there are 52 KR1M 2.0 outlets and the ministry has targeted to have 3,000 KR1M outlets by 2020. Out of the 52 outlets, 31 outlets are with KK Super Mart, while 21 are from Tunas Manja Group.
