KOMTAR Tower Light-Up Ceremony

On 12th June, Consul-General Mr. Kanoya attended light-up ceremony of Komtar Tower with Chief Minister, Chow Kon Yeow, Penang EXCO for Tourism Development, Arts, Culture and Heritage, YB Yeoh Soon Hin and City Council Mayor, Datuk Yew Tung Seang. The iconic tower will be lit up every day from 8:00pm to 10:00pm based on the Ministry of Health's definition of green, yellow and red zone . Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said that Penang State Government decided to mirror Osaka government's approach of raising public awareness in a spirited show of solidarity against Covid-19 with the government and people of Osaka.  Consul-General welcomed Penang's move and stated that now is the time to raise awareness and be united with the public to make the best possible efforts to avoid the second wave outbreak.
The Tower will be lit up as follows;
Green: No new cases for 14 consecutive days
Yellow: 1-40 new confirmed cases
Red: 41 or above new confirmed cases
We strongly hope that Penang state will continue to keep ZERO status and keep Komtar's beautiful illumination to green until the end of this project.
