As the mainstay of the nation’s food sovereignty and food security, agriculture remains the focal point of government efforts to promote it in communities throughout Malaysia. The 2016 edition of the biennial MAHA event, that takes place together with The Farmers, Livestock Producers and Fishermen’s Day (HPPNK) programme, actively promotes agriculture and agro-based industries, showcasing all the different components of this fast-growing industry.

"Food sovereignty is our right as a country to define and control our own food and agricultural systems, including protecting and regulating domestic agricultural production and trade, in order to achieve sustainable development objectives. It is vital for us to grow enough food to feed our people and reduce the nation’s dependence on food imports. We need to ensure that all Malaysians have access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food, now and in the future".
YB Dato’ Sri Ahmad Shabery Cheek
Minister of Agriculture & Agro-based Industry, Malaysia
