Why Can’t Orang Asli Sell Forest Produce?

During a tabling of the amendment bill for the National Forestry Act 1984, Datuk Ali Biju, Deputy Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, said that while Orang Asli communities are allowed to harvest products from the forest reserves, it must only be for domestic use and not commercial purposes. We look at what happens when Orang Asli communities can’t sell produce from the forest.
