KOTA KINABALU, 29 Jan (Bernama) -- Malaysia dijangka mempunyai 63,000

premis untuk sarang burung walit menjelang 2020 yang akan mengeluarkan 870 tan

metrik sarang burung bernilai RM3.5 bilion.

Timbalan Ketua Menteri Sabah Datuk Seri Yahya Hussin berkata ini berdasarkan

potensi perladangan burung walit yang amat besar dan bernilai tinggi di negara

ini.

Beliau berkata pada tahun 2010 sahaja, pengeluaran sarang burung walit

kira-kira 290 tan metrik dengan nilai pasaran RM1.2 bilion.

"Kerajaan telah mengenal pasti perladangan burung walit ini sebagai industri

yang amat berpotensi, dan justeru telah diberi keutamaan dalam Program

Transformasi Ekonomi (ETP)," kata beliau ketika berucap pada majlis perasmian

seminar persijilan Skim Amalan Ladang Ternakan (SALT) Burung Walit di sini hari

ini.

Yahya yang juga Menteri Pertanian dan Industri Makanan negeri berkata di

Sabah, pengeluaran sarang burung boleh dimakan (EBN) sudah lama dipraktikkan,

terutama sarang berkualiti tinggi yang dihasilkan dalam gua secara tradisional

termasuk Gua Guomantong dan Gua Madai.

Beliau berkata sumbangan nilai eksport sarang burung dari Sabah adalah

kira-kira RM13 juta hingga RM17 juta setahun, dengan pasaran utama tertumpu

kepada Hong Kong dan China.

Yahya berkata selain gua, pemeliharaan burung walit kini semakin meningkat,

dan menurut Jabatan Hidupan Liar Sabah, pada 2009 sahaja terdapat 500

premis untuk sarang burung walit di negeri ini.

Bagaimanapun, katanya dua tahun kebelakangan ini, pasaran sarang burung

walit menurun ekoran dakwaan produk tersebut mempunyai kandungan ''nitrit'' yang

boleh membahayakan kesihatan.

"Ekoran penguatkuasaan kandungan nitrit sifar oleh negara China, maka harga

sarang burung telah mengalami kejatuhan mendadak sehingga 50 peratus.

"Bagaimanapun, kerajaan Malaysia telah berusaha untuk merundingkannya dengan

kerajaan China bagi memastikan kualiti sarang burung dari negara ini akan

memenuhi piawaan yang ditetapkan," katanya.

Dalam hal ini, beliau berkata Malaysia melalui Kementerian Pertanian dan

Industri Asas Tani telah menandatangani Protocol Pemeriksaan, Kuarantin dan

Keperluan Kebersihan untuk pengimportan produk sarang burung dari Malaysia ke

China pada Oktober tahun lepas bagi membolehkan EBN dieksport semula ke negara

itu dengan beberapa syarat yang harus dipenuhi.

Sehubungan itu, Yahya berkata beberapa dokumentasi termasuk daripada Jabatan

Perkhidmatan Haiwan dan Perusahaan Ternak (JPHPT), Kementerian Kesihatan dan

agensi lain diperkenalkan bagi memastikan produk memperoleh perakuan jenama

1Malaysia Best.

Beliau berkata tahun lepas sahaja, sebanyak 43 premis burung walit di negeri

ini memperoleh sijil SALT, dan pada tahun ini, pihak JPHPT mensasar persijilan

300 premis.

Yahya berharap agar lebih banyak tempat pemprosesan sarang burung walit

dapat diwujudkan, sekali gus menjadikan Sabah sebagai pengeluar utama sarang

burung walit berkualiti tinggi yang memenuhi piawaian setiap negara pengimport.
