Supply Bill 2009

Food Security
"45. The Government will implement several agriculture programmes to ensure
adequate food supply. For this, a sum of RM5.6 billion is provided under the National Food Security Policy, for the period 2008 to 2010. This allocation, among others, is to provide incentives to agriculture entrepreneurs to reduce production costs and encourage higher agriculture output. About 350,000 vegetable and fruit growers, as well as aquaculture and livestock breeders, will benefit from these incentives."

The government has been giving us free cash for almost a year now. We are expecting more to come, until the end of 2010.
The challenge is, how we invest wisely, beyond 2010.
