It’s Agrobank and No Longer Bank Pertanian

Share

Bank Pertanian Malaysia is now re-branded as Agrobank. Agrobank was incorporated on 1 April 2008, with the original Bank Pertanian started way back in 1969. The bank has a strong paid up capital of RM1 billion.

The move is taken as an initiative to make the bank more competitive by fostering a fresher outlook, and enable it to provide a broader range of services to the market and cater the whole segment of the agriculture industry.

The bank will also be under the purview of the Ministry of Agriculture and Agro-based Industry and is still fully owned by the government of Malaysia. Datuk Mustapha Mohamed is the new minister, who replaced Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who takes a new role as the Minister of International Trade and Industries.

The purposes of the Agrobank’s inception are as follow:

  • To nurture and encourage the development of agriculture sector in Malaysia
  • To coordinate and streamline credit assistance to Malaysian citizens or companies who are running agriculture based businesses
  • Provide loan assistance or capital for the purpose of production and marketing of agro-based products and operation

An external consultant is now being deployed to carry out the PR and rebranding exercise for Agrobank, penetrate the market and create awareness among the public. This is aligned with the objective of the new rebranding which is to position the bank as a forward looking, modern and progressive enterprise, and at the same time contribute to the growth and sustenance of agriculture sector in Malaysia.

    Please..jangan terlalu memandang tinggi terhadap perubahan bank pertanian, Agrobank hanya mementingkan penkorporatan mereka sahaja tanpa mengambilkira pengurusan kebajikan pekerja terutama kepada eksekutif muda mereka yang hanya dibayar RM69 sehari berbanding bayaran RM98 sebelum dikorporatkan. Proses pengkorporatan yang begitu kelam kabut hanya menguntungkan pihak atasan yang sudah lama bekerja..

    Dear sir,
    To whom it may concern.
    Here I would like plant SERAI PEHA AYAM near SG BAKAP in 2 acres.So I need fund to start it.
    Where do I get this just whenever we go anywhere to get fund they KILL US with requesting all kind of papaers.That’s Malaysian can’t grow.I have gone thru so many farmers this is reason they share with me.
    I don’t what our government is preaching PERTANIAN ADALAH PERNIAGAAN but the farmers are sufferng in side their village.
    Thanks

    Salam,salam sejahtera,
    Saya amat berminat menceburi penanaman serai peha ayam di Jerantut Pahang, sekarang saya telah menjalankan kerja2 tersebut dan banyak mengeluarkan modal untuk kerja2 pembersihan, memajak, memagar kawasan seluas 16ekar dan 20ekar lagi untuk fasa ke 2 (sedang mencari modal). Benih serai yang kami dapat membeli hanya 10 ekar dan 6ekar lg terpaksa hold dahulu kerana tiada modal,Sila nyatakan apa kah bentuk pinjaman yang telah di sediakan olih kerajaan dan apakah prosidurnya?

    Untuk makluman tuan saya terpaksa bekerja di KL untuk mencari modal dan membayar upah perkerja.
