MALAYSIA: fishermen should stop relaying on (fuel) subsidies.

Malaysia's Deputy Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Johari Baharum said a few weeks ago, “All industries in Malaysia have asked for help, and we have given so many subsidies”.

Citing fishermen as an example, he said, “We give each fisherman RM200 (USD 64) a month as well as fuel subsidies and incentives."

He said this in October 2010 in the framework of the Aquafair Malaysia 2010 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
