  This project was developed to investigate the potential of coir fibres to be used as secondary raw material in order to promote environmentally friendly packaging. In addition, old newspapers were embedded in the specimen to hold the coir fibres each other. The main objective was to determine mechanical properties of paper with different beating times and percentages of coir fibres. The responses of this research are tensile index and tear factor. Mechanical pulping process was chosen to produce the pulps in random orientation with cross-machine direction. Regression and Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was employed to determine significant differences between percentages of fibres used and beating time for each response variables. The results show that as beating time increased, the mechanical properties of papers increased. Otherwise, the increment of fibres percentages has caused the mechanical paper properties decreased. The combination of 25% fibres and 75% newspaper with 20 min of beating time has produced the best mechanical properties. The conclusion suggests that coir fibres can be one of the alternative raw materials which can be applied for packaging product.

  The relationship between religion, income and consumption have been explored in several studies. In this study, we extend this inquiry by arguing that religion variable plays an important role in influencing the patterns of income and consumption among the household. According to Bank Negara Malaysia the ratio of household debt to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for 2013 is above the level of 86.8% in order to accommodate family life in nowadays situation. Therefore, this study is expected to serve as a preliminary study to see how the religious factor in the Islamic economy can educate the Muslims on how they manage income and expenses wisely. This study also discussed on the construct validity and reliability of ‘Muslim Religiosity Index’ on household consumption pattern by using religious dimension and spending pattern dimension. The instrument was developed based on past literature, expert opinion and research objectives. Expert interview has been done to validate the instrument construct and content while Cronbach’s alpha coefficient has been used to identify the value and level of internal consistency. Based on the result, some improvements on the instrument item need to be done for the next research.

  This study examining the relationship between entrepreneurial competencies towards sustainability of entrepreneurs in tourism industry. Eight variables of entrepreneurial competencies as independent variable will be tested to examine the importance of each variable in determining entrepreneur’s sustainability in business. Government support programme as moderating variables will be tested based on financial, non financial and infrastructure. Sustainability as the dependent variable will be defined based on economic, social and environmental aspects. The results of this study will be useful for the tourism entrepreneurs, academic purposes, government policy as well as entrepreneur’s development plan implementation. The result will also provide useful information to both government and private agencies in designing the most effective program for entrepreneurs in tourism industry.
