Budget 2020 well thought out for women

"Kudos to the Minister of Finance for a well thought Budget 2020 for women. It is without doubt that women may well be the dominant source of economic growth in the near future — and organisations that are able to capitalise on the roles women play as economic actors will most likely have a competitive advantage," said Ang Weina, global employer services leader of Deloitte Malaysia.

IT WAS not the usual chill-out Friday on Oct 11,2019. Rather, it was a day that all tax professionals, including myself awaited in high anticipation for the Budget 2020 proposals speech.

The announced initiatives were somewhat expected to support the Shared Prosperity Vision 2030. What was even more interesting and surprising was the extent the Budget initiatives made for women.
