Finance minister defends conditional MCO



The government’s move to allow a partial resumption of economic activities during the fourth phase of the movement control order (MCO) was not done in haste as it has made the necessary study and complies with conditions set by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Finance Minister Tengku Zafrul Abdul Aziz said the government, however, is not forcing any company to start operations immediately, as there may be those that need to make prior preparations to meet conditions set by the government.
