Azmin: Several sectors to resume full operations tomorrow


Modified 28 Apr 2020, 10:34 am

The government has allowed companies under economic sectors that have been permitted to operate during the movement control order (MCO) to resume full operations starting tomorrow.

International Trade and Industry Minister Azmin Ali said however, the companies must adhere to the standard operating procedure (SOP) which had been set according to their respective sectors.

“Failure to comply with the SOP will result in the immediate revocation of the permission to operate and legal action will be taken,” he said in a statement today.

Azmin said companies that have been authorised to operate earlier do not have to reapply for the ministry’s permission to operate.

“This initiative will help to boost the recovery of the supply chain for products and services to meet local and international demand and will have a positive impact on the companies’ revenues, especially for small and medium-sized enterprises.

“While the government has eased up on the restrictions, the people and industry owners must adapt to the ‘new normal’ by ensuring social distancing at the workplace, maintaining good personal hygiene and complying with the health control guidelines,” he added.
