JOHOR BARU, June 13 — Johor PKR’s Hassan Abdul Karim today said that the federal government’s decision to continue egg and chicken subsidies has been touted as a timely move that will strengthen the industries involved.

“Following that, when the price of eggs and chickens are controlled and the supply is stable, it means that the people can afford to buy both as they are sources of food,” said Hassan in a statement this evening. Hassan, who is also a member of the special select committee on Entrepreneurship, Cost of Living and Agriculture, however, said that the government’s move to continue subsidising eggs and chickens is only temporary given that the cost of producing both food staples has risen sharply.

“So, at that time when the industry is prepared, then the subsidies should be terminated, where egg and chicken producers are able to sell at a reasonable price and the producers can still make a profit,” he said.
