KUALA LUMPUR: The issue of working from home will be discussed with the International Trade and Industry Ministry (Miti) and the Public Service Department director-general on Monday (Dec 7), says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob (pic).
"This is because the private industries fall under Miti. We will raise the issue again in our meeting on Monday," said the Senior Minister (Security) during his daily press conference on Saturday (Nov 5).
He also said that the government will get input from the Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry regarding the reopening of tourist attractions after the lifting of the conditional MCO.
"We understand that some may ask about zoos, whether they are allowed to be open? We will discuss this in greater detail with the Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry," said Ismail Sabri.
He said that the Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry can propose the list of activities that can be reopened after the easing of restrictions.
"As of today, we have not fully re-opened those sectors. This is because under the enhanced MCO, we do not allow social activities. However, it is not clear for tourism as they can be either social or economic activities, ” said Ismail Sabri.
Citing bus operators as an example, he said that tourism would be an economic activity for them but a social activity for individuals.
