A fuel subsidy scheme will be announced in August, he said.

Malaysia had earlier said filling stations in its towns bordering Singapore and Thailand would from Monday be temporarily barred from selling fuel to foreign-registered vehicles in a move aimed at curbing pressure on subsidies.

Local media quoted Shahrir on Sunday as saying that Malaysia wanted to scrap its policy of subsidising fuel at the pump and instead give discounts to individuals based on their needs.
