SERDANG – The agrofood and agriculture sectors will be given more attention in Budget 2018, said Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
The Prime Minister said the two sectors have been identified as the new source of wealth for the country and the people.
“As such, we must change our mindset from looking at these sectors as providing only a minimum income for the people,” he said when launching the National Farmers, Livestock Breeders and Fishermen Day and the Malaysia Food Festival 2017.
Najib also announced a RM7mil allocation for area livestock breeders and fishermen’s association.
Each association will receive RM30,000 which will go towards strengthening their respective organisations. – The Star Online
