“As Malaysia’s Southern Gateway Multi-Purpose Port, we want to show our pride in being a Malaysian as well as to showcase the Malaysian solidarity during this challenging period. Hence, we have raised the Jalur Gemilang within the Port to celebrate and commemorate this National month,” said Md Derick.

Johor Port has been participating actively during National month and had been participating in the annual Johor State level National Day parade. Although the Johor state-level National Day parade is put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Johor Port will continue to demonstrate love and patriotism for the country by enlivening the spirit of the National Day at Johor Port. Johor Port dedicates this year’s National Day and Malaysia Day to the dedication and perseverance of all Malaysians and the Government in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
