As Malaysia’s second major movement control order (MCO) sees its first extension till February 18, Think City has released findings from a business community pulse check survey. Conducted in August 2020 just after the first MCO, the report uncovers findings highlighting the vulnerabilities of inner-city heritage areas in Malaysia. Carried out in the downtown areas of Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru and George Town, the survey of 875 businesses was designed to better understand market conditions, business sentiment and confidence levels. Questions centred on past and future business performance, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, and what would improve the bottom line for businesses.
