Labuan traders want FT Ministry to look into their woes

KOTA KINABALU: The Federal Territories Ministry should review how the Labuan Corporation operates, Labuan Chinese Chamber of Commerce president Datuk Wong Kii Yii has urged.

He said it was high time Labuan Corporation upgraded its services for the benefit of traders.

Wong argued that in this day and age, it should have already introduced the use of online services, but instead it still relied on manual methods for business owners to renew their licences, forcing them to wait in long queues to have their applications processed.

As such, he urged the Federal Territories Ministry to review and upgrade Labuan Corporation’s system and services.

Wong said he also hopes that Labuan Corporation would relax certain requirements for people who want to set up a new business.

He noted that traders were already facing reduced business activity on the island as well as the loss of the duty-free cigarette business, while Indah Water Service was going to increase its charges.
