Malaysia’s agriculture exports to S’pore rises

MALAYSIA’S export of agriculture products to Singapore is expected to rise following the ringgit’s depreciation, said the country’s Agriculture and Agro-Based Industries Minister Datuk Ahmad Shadberry Cheek.

He said it was estimated earlier that exports of fruits and agro-based products to Singapore would reach RM300 million annually (US$75 million), acccounting for 20 per cent of the estimated total exports of RM4 million to the republic.

“Definitely these numbers will go up due to the foreign exchange factor,” he told reporters after opening the first anniversary celebration of Agrobazaar Malaysia yesterday.

What’s more interesting, Ahmad Shabery said was Singaporeans had the opportunity to savour Malaysian fruits at a cheap price.

He said the depreciation also benefitted farmers and exporters. The idea to have the agrobazaar was mooted by Prime Minister Najib Razak who said Singapore was the best location for the Federal Agriculture Marketing Authority in an effort to introduce Malaysian homegrown fruits globally.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year.
