Moving up the value chain of NCER’s agriculture sector
As the rice bowl of the country, paddy production plays an important role in NCER to fulfil the nation’s food security agenda. Agriculture remains a key sector in NCER and is one of the top three contributors to NCER’s economy, making up 11% of the region’s GDP and contributing up to RM18 billion to Malaysia’s GDP in 2015.
To move up the value chain in this sector, NCIA is promoting the Anchor Company Business Model in the region. Under this model, private investors will first develop their own nucleus farms of high-value agricultural and aquaculture products such as superfruits and abalone, before taking up active roles in developing satellite farms within the region and provide the new entrepreneurs with technical assistance and strategic inputs. Ultimately, the produce from these satellite farms will be sold back to the anchor company, which will market them to both local and foreign markets.
In line with the government’s call for automation to modernise the nation’s agricultural sector, latest technologies and best practices are being introduced and integrated into this sector within the region, thus providing better yield and increase NCER’s farmers’ income.
The Agribusiness sector in NCER focuses on the following clusters:
(Hemp, Superfruits & High-Value Crops)
Strategic Projects Towards Sustainable Agriculture Development in NCER
Estate Management Model (EMM) Paddy
