Kota Kinabalu: Vegetable farmers in Kundasang are experiencing a huge drop in daily sales following a travel ban imposed by neighbouring Brunei.

On Tuesday (Jan 12), Brunei Home Affairs Minister Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Kerna Dato Seri Setia Dr Abu Bakar Apong announced a ban on commercial vehicles travelling from Sarawak to Sabah vice versa across Brunei’s border on Jan 13-26.

Kundasang Agriculture Operators Association President Simon Leong (pic) said the number of lorries collecting daily fresh produce significantly dropped since the ban was imposed in Brunei.

“It’s about 70 per cent drop of the number of lorries coming to collect fresh produce from the highland since the travel ban was imposed,” he said.
