He said that Miri United Hawkers Association made request to The Federation of Malaysia Hawkers Association in February 2015 to organise the 1118 National Hawkers Day celebration dinner in Miri. The federation had a meeting on 9 March 2015 where the request was approved.

He pointed out that the National Hawkers Congress will also be held in conjunction with the 1118 National Hawkers Day celebration dinner. About 400 hawkers were estimated to join the events in Miri.
