17 It is tough to attract the younger generation to start a career as a professional planter in Malaysia nowadays.

More often than not, a plantation job is the last choice of young professionals in Malaysia, says Incorporated Society of Planters (ISP) chairman Daud Amatzin (pic).. Saturday, July 2 2011
