One-stop collection, marketing centre for local products
The Entrepreneur and Cooperative Development Ministry will be setting up a one-stop collection and marketing centre here for local products from the east coast region.
Its parliamentary secretary, Datuk Samsu Baharun Haji Abdul Rahman, said the district was picked because of its strategic location between Sandakan, Semporna, Kunak and Tawau.
The one-stop collection and marketing centre would benefit entrepreneurs from the east coast region, said Samsu yesterday.
"We can start with collecting and marketing sea products from the entrepreneurs," said Samsu when closing the two-day product quality development and enhancement exhibition here.
He said the setting up of the one-stop collection and marketing centre is still at the planning stage, including identifying a suitable site for the project.
Samsu said his ministry had set up such facility in Lenggong, Perak as a collection and marketing centre for preserved fish with the brand name of "Aroma Lenggong".
