The Malaysian Associated Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (MAICCI) today expressed its support for City Hall’s move to prohibit foreign nationals from conducting 23 types of business activities.

MAICCI in a statement said the ban would reduce the growing presence of foreign nationals in the business sector and allow local businesses to thrive.
