JITRA: The Goods and Services Tax (GST) system that will be implemented from April next year is able to secure the country's future with more robust yields, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.
This year's theme is "Civil Servants, Pillars of the Nation."
Najib said the government was a government that does not promise something that it is unlikely to be fulfilled and not merely to garner support or popularity without thinking of the consequences.
"When we intend to do something, we weigh carefully and use fair considerations. If the Cuepacs president wants allowances to be upgraded, salaries to be raised, then we need to increase productivity...Where do we find funds if we do not have the yields to fund these considerations," he said.
Based on the government's considerations, he said, it had brought success to the country even though an economic crisis was being faced globally.
"Malaysia achieved a moderate economic growth of 4.7 per cent in 2013 while this year, it is likely to be slightly higher compared to the previous year," he said. - Bernama
