A host of activities will be conducted during the event by Yayasan Sabah Group, PETRONAS and other government agencies namely Information Department, Agriculture Department, Fisheries Department, Fire and Rescue Department and the Royal Malaysian Police Force among others. A special appearance of the popular Malaysian film actress, television host and singer. Maya Karin is expected to be the event’s highlight.
