The Sarawak office of the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry sent diesel and petrol to Bario yesterday to overcome the fuel shortage on the highland.
Its director, Stanley Tan, said 10,000 litres of diesel and 3,000 litres of petrol were sent to the area.
“The second delivery will be made tomorrow and scheduled to arrive the next day, due to poor road condition,” he said in a statement here today.
The last delivery of fuel to the area was made on Dec 5.
A newspaper reported last Friday on the acute shortage of diesel and petrol supply in Bario, which is in the interior of Sarawak.
