Minister at the Prime Minister's Office and Minister of Finance and Economy II Dato Seri Setia Dr. Awang Haji Mohd Amin Liew bin Abdullah said there is no restriction for transporting goods through land to Brunei Darussalam from neighbouring states for the purpose of trade or delivery of goods.
"The Sarawak government has given cooperation and allows any companies in this country and outside Brunei (that enter and exit) to send goods through checkpoint for trade,"he said.
Dato Seri Setia Dr Awang Haji Mohd Amin Liew was responding to the media query on application from transport companies domestically and abord on claims that their goods have been stopped at the checkpoint on Wednesday following control of movement made by Malaysia and travel ban for Bruneians to neighbouring state following the outbreak of COVID-19.
"Companies from Sarawak wishing to send goods through Brunei Darussalam via land route are also allowed to conduct the operation. Companies from both countries must follow transit law enforced by the agencies," the minister added.
