Two business chambers representing companies in Malaysia and Singapore have issued a joint statement warning that "drastic increases" in Causeway charges will have a detrimental economic impact.

The Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCCI) and the Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia (ACCCIM) also called for an "extensive study... to alleviate the burden on various parties".

The statement was issued after a meeting yesterday in Batu Pahat, Johor, where both chambers solicited feedback from members on the issue.

The ACCCIM is the SCCCI's counterpart in Malaysia.
