50th Anniversary of FELDA
Established with the primary intention of eradicating poverty and developing the federal land, FELDA has achieved notable accomplishments over the years. It was 50 years ago when FELDA started developing 811,140 hectares of land with the help from 104,946 settlers. In fact FELDA's knack for managing the world's biggest oil palm estate has contributed to making Malaysia known to the world.
Starting out with rubber and oil palm plantations as its core focus, FELDA has since moved onwards by diversifying its economic activities to include manufacturing, services, engineering, transportation, shipping, construction, information technology and communication, retail, tourism, herbs, security and catering.
After 50 years of success, FELDA is now ready to achieve further accomplishments for the next 50 years.
Cultivating The Seeds of Success
The theme of the 30s stamp is Cultivating The Seeds of Success. The images of oil palm and rubber trees are to signify FELDA's major plantation commodities which have helped FELDA achieve its success.
The theme of the 50s stamp is Nation Building. The bungalow house is a true depiction of FELDA'S latest development in creating a housing settlement often referred to as Felda Jaya. The background features the original houses for settlers, a view of a typical settler's village and an aerial view of an oil palm estate; the main commodity that helped to enhance the quality of life for FELDA's settlers.
Upon reaching its first 50 years successfully, FELDA continues to uphold the nation's vision. The stamp features the old as well as the current FELDA's office, Wisma Felda and Balai Felda at Jalan Perumahan Gurney, Kuala Lumpur. FELDA aspires to create more success and milestones in the near future especially with the building of its new office tower as also seen in the stamp.
