Lift MCO or businesses will die, pleads trade group

A coalition of more than 40 trade, business and professional associations has expressed regret over the government’s decision to extend the movement control order (MCO) for another two weeks.


In a joint statement today, the coalition, Industries Unite, said the second MCO would kill businesses and leave many jobless and poverty-stricken.


In view of this, its legal adviser David Gurupatham and coordinator Irwin Cheong urged the government to lift the MCO.
