PUTRAJAYA, 28 August 2023 – InDrive, the global mobility solution platform, marked the Merdeka 2023 celebration with a special convoy from Putrajaya to Dataran Merdeka on 27 August 2023. The event aimed to share the joy and spirit of independence and freedom in honor of a significant date in Malaysian history.
The ‘Kembara Merdeka bersama inDrive’ convoy, comprising 15 national cars adorned with Malaysian flags, embarked on its journey from Precinct 1, Putrajaya, passing through notable locations such as Kajang, Serdang, Seri Kembangan, Bukit Jalil, Taman OUG, Jalan Klang Lama, Brickfields, Bukit Bintang, and PETRONAS Twin Towers before culminating at the historic Dataran Merdeka.
Nabil Umar Bin Roslan, inDrive Business Development Representative, SEA, stated, “The spirit of Merdeka closely aligns with our company’s mission. We challenge injustice through transparency, fairness, and innovative technology use, aiming to provide freedom of choice through our platform. We’re thrilled to celebrate National Day and Malaysia Day, and we want everyone to share in this excitement. Through this convoy, we aim to remind Malaysians of the sacrifices made for independence and celebrate our progress while striving for greater heights.”
Nathan S/O Letchumanan, an inDrive ride-hailing service provider who participated in the convoy, emphasized the importance of showing love for the country during this special month. “I am thrilled to be part of this convoy and to proudly showcase my Malaysian identity. Everyone should seize this opportunity to cherish the Merdeka spirit.”
This year, the National Day celebration, themed ‘Malaysia Madani: Tekad Perpaduan Penuhi Harapan’ (Determination in Unity, Fulfilling Hope), will take place in Putrajaya, with over 100,000 attendees expected.
“We’re delighted to announce our participation in the National Day celebration in Putrajaya on 31 August. Our booth will be located at Jalan P2p, Presint 2 (between the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Cost of Living & Ministry of Plantation and Commodities), and we invite everyone to join in the celebration,” said Nabil.
