PRIME Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob wants the entire cooperatIve movement through Angkatan Koperasi Kebangsaan Malaysia Berhad (Angkasa) to keep up the “Jihad” (struggle) against middlemen to empower the national food security agenda.
Ismail Sabri said he sees cooperatives having an important role to play apart from being involved in retail and wholesale.
According to him, there is a need to resurrect the ‘jihad’ as the price and supply of goods are currently determined by middlemen.
“Therefore, the time has come for the entire cooperative movement through Angkasa to revive the movement which I introduced, and championed when I was the Minister of Agriculture (Agriculture and Agro-based Industry) which is the ‘Jihad against Middlemen’.
“I hope Angkasa can play a more significant role in empowering the national food security agenda,” he said when speaking at the opening of the 2022 National Cooperative Month celebration in Kuala Lumpur today.
Also present were Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Minister Noh Omar and Federal Territories Minister Shahidan Kassim. – Bernama, July 2, 2022.
