By Kurniawati Kamarudin

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) --  Come September, it will be 54 years since the Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (FAMA) was established to serve as the national agricultural marketing agency under the Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Ministry.

Today, FAMA still stands strong and continues to drive the domestic and international markets, expanding market access for the local agriculture and agro-based industry products and making sure they are made available to consumers at affordable prices.    

Ishak Ismail, whose appointment as FAMA chairman took effect on Nov 1, 2018, is determined to continue the efforts made by his predecessors to ensure FAMA meets its mission and vision.

KOTA BHARU (Bernama) -- The vibrantly painted boats docked at the jetty at Kampung Pulau Gajah seem all set for participation in some sea carnival.

That, as a matter of fact, is far from the truth as those are the boats the local fishermen use daily when they head out to sea.    

It is these visually striking fishing boats, locally known as 'perahu kolek', that make the village of Kampung Pulau Gajah at Pantai Sabak in Pengkalan Chepa, about 15 kilometres from here, rather unique.
