Various Factors Influence Malaysia’s Involvement In Subsea cable project

Malaysia’s involvement or otherwise in Apricot or other projects is based on various factors, including offers made and conditions set by the tech giants, says Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

He was replying to a request for an explanation by Lim Guan Eng in Parliament today.

The policy has been in effect since 1980 and the current cancellation of the cabotage policy exemption is only for repair works (not installation) and does not prevent the entry of foreign investments in the digital industry, he says.

Wee also made it clear that the implementation of the cabotage policy should not be blamed as the sole factor for Malaysia’s exclusion from the Apricot subsea cable system project, he says.
