Email Message to Overseas on Penang’s Response To The Rabies Outbreak And Requesting Putrajaya To Officially Invite Overseas NGOs To Give Expert Advice And Supply Needed Rabies Vaccines For Dogs (e/c)

Press Statement by the Chief Minister of Penang Lim Guan Eng on 25 September 2015:

The Penang State Government will try to ask Putrajaya to send the official invite to the international rabies organisations like World Veterinary Services(WVS) and other like-minded organisations who wish to help.
