LABUAN: More products by Sabah’s small and medium enterprises (SMEs) will be available here through a marketing collaboration between the Industrial Development Ministry, Sabah Entrepreneur Chamber of Commerce (DPUS) and Fasarina Express Mart.

Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Dr Joachim Gunsalam, who is also Industrial Development Minister, said the programme is expected to be well-received.

“Hopefully, the objectives of the programme can be achieved to further boost the SMEs, including the economic development in Sabah and Labuan,” he said during a working visit to Fasarina Express Mart, here, Friday.

The programme, he said, is in line with the State Government’s efforts to intensify the promotion and marketing of local SME products through the Buy Sabah-Made Goods Campaign.

“The Buy Sabah-Made Goods Campaign is setting a sales revenue target of RM25 million for this year.

“This campaign is one of the Ministry’s initiatives under the Sabah Maju Jaya Development Plan (SMJ) 2021-2025.

“My Ministry has compiled 17 programmes that will be implemented this year. 

“This campaign was officiated by the Chief Minister on Jan 27, this year, in Ranau and one of the objectives of the campaign is to instil the spirit of patriotism among Sabahans towards locally-made products,” he said.

Joachim said, apart from Labuan, the Department of Industrial Development and Research (DIDR) would also sign two memorandum of understanding (MoU) on May 27.

He said the MoU would be between DIDR and Pasaraya GM Klang Wholesale City and Segi Cash & Carry Sdn Bhd.

“The programme will market Sabah SME products to supermarkets in the peninsula.

“I was also made to understand that Segi Supermarket is a local supermarket that has 56 branches throughout Selangor and Perak.”

He hoped with the implementation of the programme, Sabahans who live in Labuan and the peninsula will be able to get their supplies of Sabahan delicacies like fish cooked with black beans, ‘sambal tuhau’, ‘sambal bambangan’, and ‘soto’ paste, among others.
