KARACHI: The PROTON company said on Tuesday that a full-movement-control-order (FMCO) has been imposed in Malaysia effective from June 1 due to a surge in cases of Covid-19 infections.

Due to the FMCO, all economic sectors, including PROTON’s factory and showrooms, will be closed, and there will be no production, no shipment activities allowed until further notice, the company said in a press release.

“For PROTON, all operations at PROTON Tanjung Malim (State of Perak) and Shah Alam (State of Selangor) factories have come to a halt during FMCO,” the company said. “An Enhanced-Movement-Control- Order (EMCO) is scheduled to go under review on July 16, 2021, after which the decision to either extend or end EMCO will be taken.”

“At PROTON, we are doing our very best to serve our customers globally. The FMCO and EMCO have created several major challenges, and we are mitigating these challenges as effectively as possible. We hope our customers would bear with us throughout these challenging times. For further assistance, customers are requested to contact their nearest PROTON dealers,” the press release added.
