All over the world, restaurants have been hit hard by the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. In Malaysia, local restaurants are feeling the heat, with many reporting doing 80% less business than they otherwise would – that is if they are able to remain open at all.

Today, a coalition of nearly 400 restaurant owners from the newly-formed Malaysian F&B Operators Alliance, made up of nearly 200 local restaurants, appealed to the government to provide rental relief and meet up to 50% of employee’s salary costs so that F&B businesses can maintain their staff and remain in business after the MCO ends.
