Putrajaya has decided to allow economic sectors in Klang to continue operations as usual, a day before several parts of the town come under a conditional movement control order (CMCO) following a spike in Covid-19 cases.

The government said the move was to strike a balance between public health and “the continuity of employment and sustainability of economic development”.

The decision was made at a special meeting of the National Security Council (NSC) chaired by Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin today.

In a statement, International Trade and Industry Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali said he had briefed the council on the importance of Klang’s economic sector, where container ports contributed more than RM400 billion last year.

“In light of this, and after considering the current health situation in the Klang district and the importance of ensuring economic sustainability, today’s NSC session has decided to allow all economic sectors in the Klang district to continue operations as before, subject to strict adherence to SOPs.

“Authorities are henceforth instructed to enhance enforcement of SOP compliance to ensure the safety of workers and citizens in the Klang district,” the senior minister said.

He warned that companies that flout the health SOPs would be slapped with “immediate termination of operations and legal action”.

“In maintaining the effectiveness and sustainability of the current economic recovery phase, the government will not compromise on efforts to secure the safety and health of the people.”

The CMCO in Klang will take effect from midnight tonight, but the government had stated that Port Klang will operate as usual.
