PETALING JAYA: PKR has proposed that the government scrap the essential or non-essential approach and open up the various economic sectors based on risk assessment instead.

Subang MP Wong Chen said the party viewed the essential and non-essential classification of industries and services as redundant as, after eight weeks of various movement control orders (MCOs), all sectors had become essential.

“We have proposed a new re-classification for industries and services, determined by which economic activities are high-risk or low risk,” he said in a statement today.

“To achieve this, the government has to build the data collection infrastructure for risk assessment now and then back it by frequent periodic mass testing of industries and services.”
