JOHOR BARU: Johor Budget 2021 will focus on three main foundations: improving the people’s well-being, driving economic recovery, and building the state’s fiscal and economic resilience.

In a statement yesterday, Menteri Besar Datuk Ir Hasni Mohammad (pic) said the strategies and initiatives under the budget, themed “Resilient for Prosperity”, would be inclusive, taking into account the views from various sections of society.

He said Johor Budget 2021 was also an initiative for the economic recovery phase, after the Ihsan Johor 2020 Economic Stimulus Package, as the state government realised that many parties, including the people of Johor, were affected by the economic uncertainty due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which also caused economic disruptions at the national and global levels.

“Therefore, through Johor’s fiscal resources and strategic economic position, Johor Budget 2021 represents the main opportunity for us to work on various measures to restore the state’s economy, ” he said.

Hasni said he hoped that Johoreans would see the state government’s hard work and sincerity in helping them.

“In this regard, I hope Johor Budget 2021 will be debated and accepted by all state assemblymen for the welfare of the people of Johor, ” he said.

Hasni said he was also optimistic that the state government would be able to implement the various initiatives that would be announced by taking into account the state’s strong fiscal position and the need to boost the economy.

He said the announcement of the seven Ikhtiar Makmur Johor last June was also used as a guide for the state government to boost and revive the economy post-Covid-19 and be more resilient in the future.

On Tuesday, Hasni attended a Johor state development briefing session by Johor Deputy State Secretary (Development) Datuk Dr Badrul Hisham Kassim. — Bernama
