MITI: Trade up 2.2% yoy in June

The country’s total trade rose 2.2% yoy to RM144.84 bil in June as the gradual lifting of the movement restrictions due to COVID-19 in Malaysia helped boost the trade numbers.

“The Malaysian government has relaxed the regulations on entry of expatriates into our country. Foreign professionals or key management personnel holding the Employment Pass Category One are allowed to enter the country but with strict compliance to the standard operation procedures (SOPs) set by the Immigration Department and the Ministry of Health.” he said in a statement issued by the Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC) on Aug 15.
