Just last month, former Minister of Transport, Dato Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong shared his take on the egg supplies in Malaysia, and yesterday (February 22), he had another chance to talk about it in Parliament. This time, to prove his point, he brought eggs into Parliament. Literally.

Wee has previously raised the issue of egg production, and to further “illustrate” his argument, he brought 3 eggs, which he placed inside a container – 1 local, 1 imported, and an Omega egg. It’s like presentation during your college days, but Wee had eggs as his presentation material, and he verbally explained his arguments without PowerPoint.

He brought the eggs into Parliament to compare the sizes and prices and explained why local eggs are better than imported ones. 

“This egg from India costs 50 sen, and the price of this local egg is controlled at 45 sen.”

Wee continued by comparing the sizes and said that with a close look, the egg from India, which costs 5 sen more than the local egg is smaller in size. 

“This is where it is lacking,” Wee said.

Later, Wee picked up the Omega egg, which he said cost 76 sen and the rich has no problems purchasing it.

“But this local egg is the source for helping the small and medium enterprises, especially those who bake cakes for a living.”

He also asked if the government will still provide the subsidy within six months, and if there was another method to resolve the issue or whether to continue the float. He added that over the years, the government has paid RM1.7 billion to chicken and egg farmers. 

“Is the money allocated to farmers for the continuation of farming for up to six months? This is a critical timing for the government to show that they are capable of managing the crisis,” he explained.

He also urged the government to resolve the egg supply issue before Raya.

You can watch and listen to the full clip below, where Mat Sabu, the Minister of Agriculture and Food Security of Malaysia also responded.


Do you agree with Wee’s take on egg production?
