KUCHING: With the National Recovery Plan (NRP) at least business organisations can strategise and plan for the short, medium, and long term, said Bell Bernard Aggan.

The Dayak Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) treasurer-general expressed full agreement to the NRP announced by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on Tuesday.

“It shows that the government is serious in containing Covid-19 and achieving herd immunity as soon as possible,” he said when contacted today (June 16).

At the same time, he hoped the NRP would focus on reviewing the education system and creating employment opportunities.

He hoped the plan would also introduce tax breaks, after more than a year of being under the movement control order (MCO) and its various versions.

“This will help to revive our economic sectors,” said Bell, who is also a member of SME Corp Malaysia.

“We want to go back to our normal life as soon as possible. Support from the people is very important especially with regard to the ongoing immunisation programme and compliance with the standard operating procedures (SOPs),” he said.

The NRP was announced by Muhyiddin on Tuesday (June 15), encompassing four phases and the transition of the MCO in stages.
