Sabah Felda is helping Sabahan ? // 联邦土地发展局能帮助沙巴人吗?



自从联邦土地发展局成立多年以来,并没有真正帮助到全部沙巴人。亚庇国会议员邱庆洲在本月12日的国会中提出该项问题 邱国会议员问首相署有关该局在沙巴州所种植的油棕总面积到底有多大,以及棕油的总生产量是多少?  联邦土地发展局是以何方式提供协助让沙巴人民受惠?

首相署部长拿督哈芝阿曼马士兰(Datuk Hj Ahman Bin Hj Maslan)回答说,沙巴州联邦土地发展局的土地已种上油棕的面积超过103,173公顷,而原棕油的每年总产量约有550,600公吨


The setting up of FELDA, the Federal Land Development Authority in Sabah had not been seen as helping the people in Sabah although this was established many years ago. The question was raised by the Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Hiew King Cheu in Parliament on the 21st March. The KK MP asked the Prime Minister on the how big the total area in Sabah which were planted with oil palm, and the total palm oil production, and the way how FELDA can benefit the people of Sabah.


The Minister in the Prime Minister Department Datuk Hj Ahmad Bin Hj Maslan gave the answer saying that in the FELDA Plantation in Sabah is totaling to more than 103,173 hectares. The total palm oil production yearly is about 550,600 metric tonne.

The FELDA has developed many plantation areas including the associated industries related to palm oil, especially in the Lahad Datu, Tawau and Sandakan starting from the 80’s. Land development through the plantation and the industries has given much benefit to the people of Sabah directly or indirectly through direct employment or business involvement in the FELDA area or from outside.

FELDA also pays taxes to the Sabah State Government at the same time helping to raise the economy status of the local people.

MP Hiew said it will be interesting to know the details on how in the Lahad Datu “DENT Peninsular”, a huge area of land around 300,000 acres were taken over by the Federal land development authority to plant oil palm. What was in the agreement of the deal? Was it outright purchase or leased from the Sabah Government, or is it just taken over for free? May be it is time to reveal some information to the Sabahan. The question is how many Sabahan did actually benefited from this, when compared to the land were distributed to Sabahan to allow own development of plantations.

The situation could be different when FELDA is going to be Public Listed in May 2012? What will happen next? Should the Sabah be given free bonus shares? The huge production fetches huge sum of money, and where is this money gone to? FELDA made huge profit every year and where is the money spent to.

联邦土地发展局能帮助沙巴人吗?

自从联邦土地发展局成立多年以来,并没有真正帮助到全部沙巴人。亚庇国会议员邱庆洲在本月12日的国会中提出该项问题 邱国会议员问首相署有关该局在沙巴州所种植的油棕总面积到底有多大,以及棕油的总生产量是多少?  联邦土地发展局是以何方式提供协助让沙巴人民受惠?

首相署部长拿督哈芝阿曼马士兰(Datuk Hj Ahman Bin Hj Maslan)回答说,沙巴州联邦土地发展局的土地已种上油棕的面积超过103,173公顷,而原棕油的每年总产量约有550,600公吨

联邦土地发展局已经进行了许多种植地的发展,包括棕油园及其相关的农产业,尤其是在拿笃,斗湖和山打根一带,这项发展是从80年代开始进行。 该些土地的发展是通过联邦土地发展局所推动的种植业和生产业,这已直接或间接提供给当地人就业或企业机会,带给沙巴人许多好处。

此外联邦土地发展局也有向沙巴州政府纳税,与其同时协助于提高当地人民的经济发展和生活。

邱国会议员说,大家都有兴趣知道在拿笃的“DENT Peninsular,其约30万亩的巨大土地面积已被联邦土地发展局拿去开发栽种棕油的细节和事实。 到底该项交易的协议是如何? 是否该片土地是直接购买,还是由沙巴州政府给与免费使用,又或者是直接从沙巴政府手中接管?  现在是时候有必要告诉沙巴人民其中的详细情况。 如果把该片土地被分配给沙巴人自己种植之比较下,沙巴人将会更加能比联邦发展局的计划获益更多,而金钱也不会外流。

联邦土地发展局将会在今年5月开始进行挂牌上市,到时情况可能会有所不同? 接下来会发生什么事呢?  沙巴是否能够获得免费红股? 这庞大棕油生产量所获得的巨额资金将会用到哪里? 联邦土地发展局每年获取巨大利润和收益,大家都想知道详情,是时候该局应该公布了。
