Unpacking Malaysia's Food Security Situation

There have been warning signs for several months that Malaysia may face a severe shortage of local white rice by at least April this year because of unpredictable weather and the escalating price of paddy seeds. Professor Dr Fatimah Arshad, Research Fellow, at the Institute of Agricultural and Food Policy Studies of Universiti Putra Malaysia helps us analyse the country's overall food security situation and what often appears to be reactionary response policies by Malaysian authorities.
