The agriculture and food security ministry says the import of chicken eggs will be reviewed once the domestic supply has stabilised.

The provision of subsidies for chicken eggs will continue until June 2023 at a total cost of RM1.28 billion, the agriculture and food security ministry says.

It said in a statement that the Cabinet agreed to continue subsidising chicken eggs at its meeting on Feb 17.

"This step is being taken to ensure that the supply of chicken eggs in the country remains stable, while the study on the mechanism and policy of targeted subsidies can be finalised soon," said the ministry.

It said the need to bring in chicken eggs from abroad would also be reviewed once the supply in the country stabilised.

"The initiative to bring in chicken eggs from outside sources is a temporary measure to ensure that supply in the country remains stable and uninterrupted," it said.
