As part of the plan to allow companies to resume operations, the Ministry of International Trade and Industry recently started the Public-Private Partnership Covid-19 Industry Immunisation Programme (PIKAS).

PIKAS works as an incentive for companies and industries to allow the use of their premises as Vaccination Centres (PPV) as an immunisation programme for employees.

Muhyiddin Yassin said that 150 million RM (36 million USD) has been allocated for the implementation of PIKAS and to alleviate companies’ costs.
