Sabah in need of higher subsidised cooking oil quota – KKCCI

25th February, 2017

KOTA KINABALU: The Kota Kinabalu Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KKCCCI) urge the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism to implement the increase in quota for subsidised cooking oil in Sabah as soon as possible.

“The ministry should also announce how much of the quota will be increased,” said its president, Datuk Michael Lui (pictured) in a press statement yesterday.

While it welcomed the increase in quota, Lui pointed out that the problem of shortage in supply had been evident for the past few months, when almost all the shelves displaying cooking oil were empty.

“KKCCCI is of the opinion that there must be a substantial increase in quota to reduce the issue concerning the shortage of supply for subsidised cooking oil.

“We hope the relevant authority realizes the fact that the prolonged shortage in Sabah is the root cause of panic buying.

“We strongly believe that with a reasonable quota for subsidised cooking oil, we will be able to ease the problem of panic buying,” he said.
