Ministry of Commerce working to ensure continuous import of medical supplies.


  • Border trade posts continue to be open to allow the transport of vaccines and medical supplies in accordance to the SOPs that are coordinated with the relevant departments.
  • Online import and export license applications will continue to operate as usual during office hours.
  • Aside from medical supplies such as oxygen concentrators and cylinders, businesses continue to see a restriction in other types of goods or people that are allowed to cross borders.
  • Surge in cases has affected production capacity. Besides, prices, raw material shortages and unfavourable exchange rate have led to input price inflation and resulted in closure of manufacturing businesses and facilities.
