“When the country has this capability, we can reduce the outflow of the Malaysian currency and increase the export of local items,” he said when launching the national-level Mega Sales Programme and Buy Malaysian Products Campaign at Suria KLCC here today.

Therefore, the government is studying and review the existing policies to reduce dependence on imported items and give priority to building the capacity of local industries to produce made in Malaysia products, he added.
