FMM president Tan Sri Soh Thian Lai: “FMM reiterates its call on the government to immediately allow all non-essential sectors to resume operations at 50% workforce capacity or higher."

KUALA LUMPUR: Manufacturers in non-essential sectors, which had seen sales plummet and cashflow nearly dried up due to the Covid-19 restrictions, appealed to the government to let them resume operations at 50% workforce capacity.

The Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) had on Wednesday appealed for the reopening regardless if their operations are in phases one or two of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) before they have to close down permanently.
