SHANGHAI: Sabah China Chamber of Commerce (SCCC) President Datuk Frankie Liew said the State Government offered various incentives and assistance to lure investment in the agriculture sector. 

He said the agriculture industry was one of the main thrusts of the State Government, and therefore, investments in upstream and downstream processing in crops and livestock farming as well as aquaculture were very much welcomed. 

Liew said that during an interview by Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd Deputy Marketing Communications Manager, Iris Lee, during the Shanghai World of Packaging (Swop) Expo here. 

The exposition was jointly organised by Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. and Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd. 

He said the SCCC members were in the business of agriculture, aquaculture, farming, construction, tourism, education, infrastructure development, mining, logistics and media. 

“The purpose of visiting the Swop expo is to learn more about the latest processing and packaging technology and get to know the industry experts in China to enhance the development of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Sabah.”

He also suggested Swop organisers to organise business matching and dialogue sessions, as well as factory tours, for visitors to better understand the suppliers’ products and services. 

Liew continued to say that the food manufacturing, wholesale and retail sector was faring well in the State. 

He believed that the food processing industry would thrive in the coming year following the launch of the Sabah Agriculture Blueprint, recently. 

On another note, he said SCCC would continue to organise more working visits to China for Sabah entrepreneurs for them to explore ways and possibilities to upgrade their operations, products and services, in line with the State Government’s call to embrace Industry 4.0. 

Liew has also expressed keen interest to attend the China International Exhibition on Packaging Machinery and Materials (Sino-Pack), which will be held in Guangzhou in March next year.  The delegation also visited the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Shanghai during the trip.
