‘Cabotage exemption policy repeal won’t affect sea cable project’


PETALING JAYA: The revocation of the cabotage policy exemption will not affect maritime data cable projects passing through Malaysia’s territorial waters, says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

The Transport Minister said the current requirement for foreign vessels to obtain a Domestic Shipping Licence (DSL) to carry out marine cable repair work does not present any barrier to any marine-based cable project.
