Malaysian SMEs Export More than $1 Million Worth of Products


A memorandum of understanding (MOU) between SMEs and foreign companies was signed in September last year (2016) in Sungai Petani. The five-year agreement will see about US$1 million worth of products (such as instant coffee, Stevia-based sweeteners and flavored carbonated drinks) exported abroad annually from Sungai Petani (a town in Kuala Muda District, Kedah, Malaysia) to Africa.

The state’s Women, Development, Agriculture and Agro-Based, Entrepreneur Development, and Community Welfare Committee chairman Datuk Suraya Yaacob, said that this achievement was a result of the great teamwork by the group of entrepreneurs under the Koperasi Usahawan Groombig Negeri Kedah Bhd (KuGerak).  [KuGerak was established in 2008 and now has more than 184 SMEs as members.]

The anticipation is that within a year the SMEs will also export their products to China and the United States.  The goal is to boost exports for SMEs so they break into more international markets, become stronger, and survive much longer.
