Program Sembang Getah Di Warung At Labu, Seremban, Negeri Sembilan

On September 12, 2019, Program Sembang Getah di Warung at Cendol Sagu Rumbia Echam, Labu, Negeri Sembilan was held. It was officiated by YB Tuan Haji Ismail Bin Ahmad, Exco & Assemblyman for Labu area. Ybrs En. Ramli Bin Othman, officer in charge for Director of Extension & Development Division (PBPP) has led the conducted dialogue session, specifically to provide advice and information on issues in rubber industry to rubber smallholders in that area. The session was also assisted by Pn. Rabiah Bt. Mohd Yusuf, Regional Director for MRB Central Region, En. Ab Latif Bin Dalib, State Director for MRB Selangor & Federal Territories, En. Khairul Fahmi Bin Baddarudin, Administrative Officer for Licensing & Permit Unit as well as the representatives from Felcra, MPKK and RISDA.

The program is LGM’s initiative to meet the customers directly and aims to reduce the gap between LGM leaders and the community. It also provides more comprehensive and informal space to deliver government policies. On the other hand, LGM leaders are able to look and hear personally the issues faced by the target group. Apart from addressing various issues and looking for solutions, rubber smallholders also had an opportunity to submit PAT-G card and Insentif Pengeluaran Getah (IPG) applications to responsible MRB staff directly, without the need to go to any nearby MRB offices.

MRB takes a serious approach and constantly striving to improve this program in line with the current needs, besides continuing to provide best service to the community especially the rubber smallholders. The cooperation resulted for this effort, will provide a greater input to MRB in producing holistic policy for the betterment of stakeholders in the rubber industry.
