SINGAPORE: The flow of goods and supplies between Singapore and Malaysia will continue even with the full movement control order being implemented in Malaysia from Jun 1 to Jun 14, said Minister for Trade and Industry Gan Kim Yong on Saturday (May 29).

“Since the start of the pandemic, Singapore and Malaysia have been working closely to ensure the continued flow of goods and supplies between our two countries,” said Mr Gan.

“We will continue to do so following Malaysia’s recent announcement of further tightened measures to control the pandemic within their country.”

On Friday, Malaysia’s Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin announced a “total lockdown” throughout the country to curb the spread of COVID-19. 

The first phase of the lockdown will last from Jun 1 to Jun 14, and only essential economic and service sectors listed by the National Security Council will be allowed to operate during this period.
