No discount for Petronas to settle 2019 SST: S'wak assistant minister



The Sarawak state government today dismissed a claim by its former state finance minister Wong Soon Koh that it has agreed to accept a vastly reduced payment of state sales tax (SST) from Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) for petroleum products obtained from the state.
