Uplifting The Economy

The Sarawak Land Consolidation and Rehabilitation Authority (SALCRA) has provided a lot of assistance to residents in the rural areas especially the Dayak community in Sarawak at uplifting their economic status by developing their Tanah Hak Adat Bumiputera or Native Customary Rights (NCR) land. SALCRA had succeeded in changing the lives of a number of families residing at Asan Longhouse in Kampung Memalo, Engkelili, whereby each family receives an annual dividend totaling RM10,000.

The cooperation involves SALCRA developing the 2,162 hectares of Native Customary Rights (NCR) lands belonging to 825 residents of Kampung Memaloi with the cultivation of oil palm. As the latter is undertaken by SALCRA, the land owners receive monthly payouts depending on the oil palm produce and the size of their lands.

Indirectly, the oil palm plantations opened by SALCRA provide job opportunities to local residents to increase their income and uplift the living standard of their families. Land development projects such as these do not only provide lucrative income to the NCR land owners but also contribute in the economic betterment of the Malaysian agricultural sector.

The villagers of Kampung Memaloi who have sufficient financial capital and capabilities can develop their own land by planting various types of crops. However, those without such capabilities have made a wise decision by cooperating with SALCRA. This is because SALCRA is also capable of providing them with income even when they just stay at home.
