FMM PRESS STATEMENT: Industry Will Follow The Proclamation of Nationwide Emergency Which Will Not Hamper Business Operations

Kuala Lumpur, January 12, 2021 – The Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) fully takes note of the proclamation of a state of emergency nationwide by Yang di-Pertuan Agong which is expected to last until August 1, 2021 as a measure to fight the Covid-19 pandemic and to contain the current high rates of infection in the country.

The business fraternity is glad to know that businesses can continue to function and that the proclamation of emergency will not impede business operations. The industry hopes that with the Covid-19 vaccinations to be received soon and the current layered implementation of the Movement Control Order (MCO) in the country, it will effectively flatten the curve and bring down the number of Covid-19 cases and that the emergency order could be withdrawn as soon as possible

In the meantime, FMM continues to remind the industry to strictly observe the COVID-19 precautionary measures and be diligent and be vigilant in adhering to the SOPs as breaking this chain of infections is a concerted effort of everyone.
