Nationwide Lockdown Disrupts Key Manufacturing Sectors

Timeline to normalization remains unclear

A nationwide “total lockdown” across Malaysia is severely impacting several key manufacturing industries. Due to a sharp increase in COVID-19 cases, authorities in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur, both key locations for a large number of manufacturing clusters, imposed even more restrictive measures as part of a two-week Enhanced Movement Control Order (EMCO) from July 3 that includes a nightly curfew, a stay-at-home order unless for grocery shopping, and the shutdown of all manufacturing plants except for those producing food and daily essentials. 

While a partial normalization of economic activities is only expected in September 2021, the full reopening is unlikely to occur before the end of the year as the country struggles to lower the infection rate.
