Pemerkasa: How Much Will It Help Affected Sectors?

The Prime Minister announced the RM20b Pemerkasa stimulus package last week, consisting of 20 strategic intiatives focusing on five main focus areas. We discuss how much the new aid package will help affected businesses, and look at what impact it will have specifically on the tourism sector. Then, we hear from a business owner about his experience of applying for government incentives, and what can be done to smoothen the process.
