KUANTAN: The Land and Co-operative Ministry will set up a commercial hub where goods produced by co-operatives nationwide can be displayed and sold to the public. 

Many co-operatives were involved in producing handicraft and food, said its parliamentary secretary Dr Robia Kosai. 

“We will work together with the Culture, Arts and Tourism Ministry in getting tourists to go to the complex and buy the products,” she said after opening a two-day seminar on Felda here yesterday. 

Also present were co-operative development director-general Md Ali Ahmad and Malaysia Development of Felda Generation Foundation president Zainuddin Ismail. 

Robiah said the complex would be built by next year, adding that the plan would complement the concept of “one region, one product” promoted by the ministry. 

“We have identified several areas in Terengganu for products made from screwpine leaves (daun pandan), Pahang for merchandise made from forest resources and Johor for its cakes and cookies,” she said.
