The agropolitan project, which comes under the East Coast Economic Region (ECER) in Runchang here, today provided an opportunity to another 72 orang asli to boost their income.
Currently, 102 people are involved in the project as compared to 30, previously. The increase is mainly due to additional supply of 1,800 Dorper sheep from Australia.
A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed between the 72 orang asli and the ECER Development Council (ECERDC).
Currently, there are 95 animal production units to locate 3,500 Dorper sheep which would enable participants to increase their monthly income of between RM750 and RM1,200.
