KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has been happy with the quality and range of ideas offered by the people through the #Bajet2015 microsite, up to the last day of participation yesterday.
Najib, who is also the finance minister, said Malaysians, regardless of age, had demonstrated that they could cooperate with the Govern-ment to draft inclusive policies for the benefit of all.
“Your ideas, concerns and needs are always accorded priority in our efforts to draft an inclusive, balanced and responsible national budget,” he said in his blog, www.1malaysia.com.
The Budget 2015 campaign, which began on Aug 11, invited the people to share their opinions and ideas through online discussion at the microsite.
Najib said Malaysia was almost nearing its goal of becoming a high-income developed nation as the national economy continued to register strong growth in tandem with the rising standard of living.
He reminded, however, that this scenario did not mean the country would not meet obstacles along the way, adding that by working together Malaysians could achieve their targets and enable every individual to share in the gains derived from the success.
“We can achieve not only a high-income economy, we can also achieve a high-quality economy – that is when every individual shares the benefits of economic growth.”
Najib expressed confidence that with the proposals he had received, Budget 2015 would stimulate growth, improve the country’s fiscal position and raise the people’s living standard.
He is expected to table Budget 2015 in Parliament on Oct 10. – Bernama
