JOHOR BARU (The Star/Asia News Network) - Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has announced that the government has decided to implement the Vehicle Entry Permit fee for all foreign vehicles entering Johor.

Datuk Seri Najib said that the decision was made following a request made by the state.

"I have discussed the matter with Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and have also informed Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Wahid Omar of our decision.

"I have instructed him to inform the Road Transport Department (JPJ) so they can work out the details before the VEP is implemented," he said during a buka puasa event organised by the state on Wednesday.

"We will make an announcement later on the date of implementation and the rates for the VEP," he said.

Mr Najib also assured that a portion of the collection would be channelled to the state government.
