Tax Paid, But Plantations’ Roads are Bad May 22, 2008

Posted by wong jimmy in Oil Palm.

Click to read news and see picture of one of the many bad stretches of road at Jeroco, Lahad Datu. I understand the feeling of the planters of Lahad Datu, Tawau and all planters in general. They paid their tax to the government, but the roads are not maintained, which should not be the case as they are one of the biggest contributor to the state’s economy. I hope the government would listen and not dilly-dally anymore and start using part of the income from the CPO sales tax  to repair plantation roads immediately. Good roads means faster transportation from plantation to mills. I understand that FFB (Fresh Fruit Bunch) once harvested must reach the mill within 24-hours. Any lateness would cause the FFA (Free Fatty Acid) to increase in the fresh fruit bunch and the miller would then deduct certain amount of money from the sales as penalty. Again the planters unnecessarily have to suffer not because of their fault. I appeal to the government to remedy the problem ASAP.
