SARAWAK will decide which companies under the economic sector will be allowed to resume full operations.

Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas said they will deliberate the issue during the state disaster management committee meeting today.

“We will discuss this issue in our meeting today and hope to provide an outcome after that,” he told The Borneo Post.

“We will decide again if we will follow suit,” he said.

Yesterday, International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali said the government has allowed companies under the economic sectors permitted to operate during the MCO to resume full operations from today.

However, he said these companies must adhere to the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) set according to their respective sectors.

Failure to comply with the SOP will result in the immediate revocation of permission to operate and legal action will be taken.

Companies which have been authorised to operate earlier do not have to reapply to the ministry to operate, he added.
