“I would like the business community to make out all effort to promote Malaysia’s products. We are rich in commodities and manufacturing products such as palm oil, rubber, timber, furniture, cocoa, pepper, kenaf, tobacco and many others,” he said.

The UMNO Petaling Jaya Selatan division chairman of the Setia Budi branch, however, said there must be a dialogue with local banks to assist in the drive to export Malaysian goods.

He said it was also necessary to introduce various facilities to enable the business community to enhance the export capability.

“But also there is need to thoroughly guide the business community so that Malaysia becomes a cleverer exporter just as other countries like Japan, Korea, Taiwan and some parts of Europe (Italy, France and so on).

“To help our business community succeeds, the banks need to proactively come forward to provide active supports for export industries. Time limit to meet and discuss with the banks on issues on export should be highly welcomed with full assistance from the banks,” he said.

He said the current government is doing an excellent job of executing measures to save the nation.

He started his letter with ‘Salam Harapan’ which is used by Pakatan Harapan.Follow us on Social Media
