Johor, ECERDC to develop Jemaluang dairy project


Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Hasni Mohammad.said: "The Johor state government has planned to expand its agricultural sector and intends to become a major food exporter as well as a ‘food bank’ to other exporting countries.”

MERSING: The Johor state government and the East Coast Economic Region Development Council (ECERDC) have signed a collaboration agreement to develop the Jemaluang Dairy Valley (JDV) project in Mersing Johor.

The project is part of the overall strategy in turning the East Coast Economic Region (ECER) into Malaysia’s “Dairy Valley”, the ECERDC said in a statement.

It said the JDV is a key agribusiness project under “agrofood@ECER”, an integrated initiative for agricultural and food products.

“JDV takes an integrated approach on upstream, midstream and downstream activities, looking into all aspects of dairy cattle production, including animal breeding, livestock management, milk processing, and related industries such as animal feed and nutrition.

“The JDV project will be modelled after the highly-successful Muadzam Shah Cattle Research and Innovation Centre in Pahang, another project by ECERDC,” it said.

The CA was signed by ECERDC chief executive officer Baidzawi Che Mat, while the Johor state government was represented by state secretary Datuk Azmi Rohani, witnessed by Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Hasni Mohammad.

“The Johor state government has planned to expand its agricultural sector and intends to become a major food exporter as well as a ‘food bank’ to other exporting countries,” said Hasni. — Bernama
