Malaysia Shipowners’ Association (Masa) chairman Datuk Abdul Hak Md Amin said the revocation of the cabotage exemption did not mean that foreign-flagged vessels were prohibited from entering Malaysian waters to perform maintenance jobs.

Despite Malaysian vessels being given priority, Abdul Hak said there would still be competition in terms of pricing as foreign vessels could still offer their services.
