The state seems to be the first to announce the guideline that was recently adopted.
The rest seems to have no direction.
I was in Sarawak recently and the stories given by my contact seems to be totally negative.
They don't even know when the state of Sarawak will adopt the so called guidelines.
No one wanted to say anything and you don't really know who can we talk to in giving a talk about Swiftlet Farming Guidelines for the state of Sarawak.
"Pak Harry after one week of being kicked around I wanted to give up." A sincere comment by my partner whom I asked to get the local authority to give a one hour talk on the selected topic.
Last month when I was in Sabah I can feel the good vibes from two of their officers who joined me to give a one day swiftlet farming seminar in Semporna.
The officers seems to be very friendly with all the participants and is willing to help those who would like to get any license that will help to promote the industry.
"Pak Harry we will give free service to ensure that any person who owned a BH be registered as our producer. In the meantime we are about to approve one more company to be Sabah third exporter to China."
These change of attitudes are very helpful to all our BH owners and processing centres.
I hope the other states in Malaysia will follow Sabah's attitudes.
