Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof said he would hold a meeting with agricommodity industry players next week to look at several matters and the entire supply chain, including exports and supplies.

On the challenges faced by the sector, he said one of them is its dependence on foreign labour, in which if there is a worker shortage, it will also affect revenue and exports.

He also said the agricommodity sector has contributed RM61.3 billion to the country’s Gross Domestic Product up until the third quarter of this year.

He told reporters after the Institute of Malaysian Plantation and Commodities (IMPAC) convocation in Putrajaya on Thursday (Dec 15).
