Govt mulls tax cut for microbuses

The government might slash taxes for importing parts of 20-seater microbuses as an incentive for passenger van operators to switch to using microbuses for transport safety.

He discussed the policy at a meeting on Monday aimed to encourage passenger van operators to change to larger microbuses.
