Published on: Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Kota Kinabalu: The State Government is currently formulating strategies to make Sabah the biggest producer of ginger in the country.

Assistant Agriculture and Food Industry Minister Datuk Musbah Haji Jamli said this was following the Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman's recommendation, considering Sabah's ginger is known to be the best of its kind in the country.

"This is part of the State Government's effort to ensure Sabah is no longer viewed as incapable to compete with the other states É the Chief Minister is also very concerned over agriculture development in the State and aspires to bring it to a level that we can be proud of," he said at the launching of the Sabah zone-level Kor Tani by the Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Ministry at the Kota Kinabalu Sports Complex here Monday.

Musbah, who represented Deputy Chief Minister cum Agriculture and Food Industry Minister Datuk Yahya Hussin at the event, said the State Government is also hoping that the Federal government can channel more allocations to Sabah.
