Malaysians Are Investing In Other Countries !!!



We are loosing millions when more and more Malaysians are investing their monies to our neighboring countries.

One of the biggest reason is no proper guidelines........

I received a call from a good friend hailed from Tapah, Perak.

He used to be in Malaysia and very active in buying swiftlet bird houses plus opening a number of birdnests processing centers. He created lots of jobs for young unemployed Malaysian.

Recently he called and told me that he now have decided to settle in Thailand.

Why, I asked him?

Well Harry I am sick of those so called guidelines that until today still hanging.

We investors cannot wait. Just imangine if I keep investing my hard earned monies into swiftlet farming and every night having this nightmares that one day the Local Council will come and pull my BH down, what should I do.

Life is short and waiting for those guidelines to be out is too much for me.

I now sold all my birdhouse and now put my money over here in Thailand. Here the rules are easier and more towards helping the swiftlet industries.

"You go and talk to those Government officials and get those guidelines out. They are loosing billions every year where Malaysians are running away to put their investments in swiftlet farming in Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia."

He was right and I think those guidelines are long overdued. The Minister in charge should get his staff to finish them and get the cabinet decide. The sooner the better.

I remmembered very well when I was in the committee but soon after that the draft guidelines shifted to another department.

Then I came acrossed this article issued by my ex school mate now the head of the advisory committee to the chief minister of sarawak:

Found at: http://www.mysarawak.org/2009/12/09/lesen-ternak-walit-sukar-diperolehi.html

Pengusaha dari Sarawak lebih cenderung melabur di Pontianak, Indonesia dengan nilai pelaburan kini mencecah RM10 juta

MIRI: Kesukaran memperolehi lesen menternak burung walit menyebabkan pengusaha dari Sarawak le-bih cenderung melabur di Pontianak, Indonesia dengan nilai pelaburan kini men-cecah RM10 juta.Penasihat Unit Pembangunan Usahawan Bumiputera, Jabatan Ketua Menteri Datuk Adzmy Abdullah berkata, walaupun Sarawak merupakan pengeluar utama sarang burung walit di Malaysia, namun jumlah keluarannya masih jauh ketinggalan berbanding Perak dan Sela-ngor.

“Setakat ini kita mempunyai kira-kira 1,500 pengusaha sarang burung walit, namun tidak semua beroperasi kerana kesukaran mendapatkan lesen.

“Justeru ada yang membuat pelaburan di negara jiran, mungkin kerana di sana prosedurnya lebih mudah dan terjamin berbanding di sini.

“Sehubungan itu, kita menggesa kerajaan khususnya Jabatan Perhutanan memudahkan prosedur yang ada bagi menggalakkan rakyat tempatan melabur di negeri sendiri seterusnya meningkatkan pengeluaran produk ini,” katanya kepada Utusan Borneo semalam.

Antara pengeluar utama sarang burung walit di Sarawak ialah Samarahan, Mukah, Sarikei dan Miri.

Mengulas lanjut, Azdmy memberitahu setakat ini kerajaan sedang mengeluarkan garis panduan dan ia diharap dapat memudahkan para pengusaha yang berminat untuk menceburi industri sarang burung walit.

“Industri ini mempunyai potensi yang amat besar kerana sarang burung walit mempunyai nilai perubatan yang tinggi di kebanyakan negara Asia seperti China, Hong Kong, Singapura, Jepun dan Asia Pasifik.

“Malah negara Timur Tengah sudah menunjukkan minat untuk mengimport produk sarang burung walit. Ia mempunyai potensi untuk berdaya maju serta ruang komersial yang luas,” tegas-nya.

Menurut beliau, setakat 2007, Malaysia mengeksport lebih 150 tan metrik sarang burung walit dan menyumbang keuntungan sebanyak RM750 juta. Sarang burung walit kini dijual dengan harga RM3,500 hingga RM4,500 sekilogram bergantung kepada gred dan harga ini dijangka terus meningkat berdasarkan peningkatan permintaan setiap tahun.

Katanya, negara pengeksport utama ialah Indonesia iaitu 80 peratus diikuti Thailand dan Malaysia yang mengeskport di antara lapan hingga 10 peratus.

“Berbanding sektor lain, industri sarang burung walit tidak perlu menebang hutan, membotakan bukit atau mengeringkan paya, namun masih juga berupaya mengaut keuntungan berjuta-juta ringgit setiap tahun.

“Sehubungan itu kita patut galakkan industri ini dan agensi yang berkaitan memberi kerjasama untuk merancakkan industri terbabit,” katanya sambil menambah Unit Pembangunan Usahawan Bumiputera turut memberikan kursus bimbingan dan bantuan modal melalui Tekun dan Agrobank.

Mengenai pengeluaran lesen sarang burung walit, beliau difahamkan setakat ini Jabatan Perhutanan sudah mengeluarkan beberapa lesen baru kepada pengusaha yang memenuhi syarat.


I remembered a couple of months ago I met him in Kuching and suddently realised that he was my school mate at Ibrahim Secondary School in SP Kedah.

"Hei Dato, I think we were in the same school and I know you were prefects in the same year when we were in form six."

Oh yes Harry I remember you. You used to tackle those Chinese girls?

"Dato I married one."

I gave him the contact number of a swiftlet farmer in Pontianak, Indonesia and he drop by to visit them a few short week later.

His press released is something that is common. We are loosing many investors and until today no one seem to be bothered to get the guidelines out.

How long more are we going to wait? There must be a specific date and not to put our investors hangging.

How many millions will be invested else where?

Why not in Malaysia?

Then again once the guidelines are out you will be suprised the effects to potential investors.
