FELCRA BHD may be the second government agency, after Felda, to be listed on the KLSE, Rural Deve- lopment Minister Datuk Azmi Khalid said. 

He said many parties, including the government, had proposed that Felcra be listed as it had achieved the standard set for a listing. 

“Felcra is performing well. If it can afford to continue to benefit the targeted group and gain profit, why not let it be listed on the KLSE so that it can spread its wings and not only invest in the country, but also outside?” Azmi said after officiating the seminar on SMI: The engine of growth in Ipoh on Thursday. 

However, Azmi said the listing had yet to be discussed and the ministry had no plan to bring up the matter to the Cabinet. Felda planned to expand the services of its catering subsidiary, D'Saji, to London by April in line with aspirations of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad who wanted Felda to be an international brand, group chairman Tan Sri Dr Mohd Yusof Noor said on Thursday. “With the expansion of D'Saji to London, it would form the basis for our overseas diversification and expansion of Felda activities in line with the wishes of the prime minister.” – Bernama
