The Ministry of Economic Development will be resuming specific services despite the government extending state closure period.

An announcement from the Ministry on Saturday, 04 April 2020, states the authority will be resuming to render services in business registration while the state remains in closure.

According to the ministry, the service of business registration and its affiliated services will be rendered from the authority between 09:00hrs and 13:00hrs everyday, except Friday every week.

The services include;

  • Business name approval and registration
  • Sole proprietorship registration
  • Issuance of corporate profile sheet
  • Categorization of small and medium enterprises/businesses
