Pork shortage – breeders 1st or consumers 1st February 11, 2010

Posted by wong jimmy in 24888188.

The government should be fair with pork meat and allows import just like any other meat as by denying import for pork meat whether there is any shortage or not is denying the consumers of choice and businessmen for healthy competition. By denying import the government is putting breeders interest first rather than the vast majority of consumers and this is strange and it is against its slogan of ‘people first’.

How can it hurt the local breeders? We import chicken, cow and buffalo meats and there is no problem with the local farmers here. On disease from imports pork meat, look at Singapore and Hong Kong, both are 100 percent importers of pork meat, with Hong Kong getting supplies form Argentina that supply at cheaper price and good quality. West Malaysia also import pork meat, so tell me and the consumers, if its safe to import in West Malaysia, why is it not safe for Sabah?

Unless there is a vested interest, the government should bent down to consumers demand and allow import. If there is no vested interest, open the market and end the shortage, high price and suffering of consumers. The high price of pork in Tawau had caused many middle income consummer to stop buying pork meat and this is unhealthy to the local economy and I hoped the controlled price by the government would be accepted by consumers to enjoy lower price for the Chinese New Year.

I also call on the Chinese leaders in the Barisan National to speak out and not keeping their silent about the matter.
