In 2020, Malaysia has been hit by COVID-19 pandemic which not only caused the economic downturn in Malaysia but also globally.

The implementation of the Movement Control Order (PKP / PKPB / PKPP / PKPD) starting 18th March 2020 had a direct impact on business establishments such as temporary or permanent closure of establishments, changes in business model, retrenchments, emergence of new establishments/ industries or the occurrence of changes/ changes in the industry within a short period of time.
