"Of the number, 489 projects worth RM32.74 billion had been completed while 125 projects worth RM52.45 billion are under construction," Works deputy minister Datuk Yong Khoon Seng in Dewan Negara on Thursday April 29.
He was replying to a question by Senator Datuk Daljit Singh Dalliwal on whether all contractors and industry players would be compelled to register with the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) before taking
on projects overseas. This was among proposals to amend the CIDB Act 1994 to protect contractors and industry players facing problems in their projects overseas.
"Previously there was no regulation to compel contractors to register with CIDB. With the amendment, we can monitor and help contractors facing problems such as late payments," Yong said.
Yong said the ministry and CIDB could only help contractors who did not flout their contracts. --Bernama
