The Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) together with the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) will be putting up a joint paper to address the gas supply issue, its minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed said Tuesday.

“We are engaging with the EPU on the gas issue. We know that many industries are dependent on gas. We understand the problems, they want some certainty and transparency in terms of supply,” he told reporters after a dialogue session with players from the chemicals and petrochemicals industry here.

Mustapa said MITI was working with EPU to come up with a proposal that would update the Cabinet on two issues, namely the current gas supply situation in Malaysia and to resolve the short-term problems.
