Tourists to Malaysia now only allowed to take home a maximum of 1kg of bird's nest to prevent 'smuggling'

PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Tourists to Malaysia are now only allowed to take home a maximum 1kg of bird's nest. 'This is to ensure that no smuggling of this expensive commodity takes place,' Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Datuk Seri Noh Omar. He also announced that local companies would require three certificates to export edible bird's nest products to China. The certificates are from the Veterinary Services Department, the Health Ministry and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC). 'After a company receives all three certificates, it will be allowed to use the 1Malaysia Best' logo and can export to China,'' Mr Noh told reporters after launching the first authentic edible bird's nest trade and depository centre by PT Swift Marketing Sdn Bhd in Puchong on Monday.
