Top 10 Rare & Practical Gift Items While Supporting Local Business in Malaysia
Posted on April 28 2022
‘All a brand needs are an undivided support from surroundings and a strong faith to soar high’
All of us agree that we should buy local products because we are our own nation’s endorsers. But the questions are how and what?
When we’re searching for gifts, we usually buy from familiar well-known brands and unfortunately - not much of local choices. Aside from the seasonal items such as Nona ketupat and Faiza rice (who gives others 10kg rice though), people don't really know that we have many selections of products ranging from food, skincare, beauty, etc. And we’re about to change your perception!
According to Chong Chieng Jen, the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Deputy Minister, Malaysians’ commitment level of buying local goods is still below 40%, even though more than 75% of them are conscious of the ‘Buy Malaysian’ campaign.
The impact of the lack of awareness has undoubtedly affected the economy. Import rates still surpass the export rates and our brands are still stuck at a small-scale level. Hence we’ll introduce local products that are on par with international level and will excite your receivers because of their rarity. Let’s go!
1. RELAXING SLEEP ROLL ON WITH ESSENTIAL OILS
