CPTPP will not affect bumiputra rights, says Azmin

“I have provided details of the provision in annex II and I have explained to Parliament to refute allegations from certain quarters that we’re compromising the interests of the Malays and bumiputras, that is not true,” Mohamed Azmin Ali (seated) told a press conference after attending the “Semarak Prihatin Selangor” programme at the Kajang district police headquarters (IPD) yesterday.

KAJANG: Senior Minister cum International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali has reassured the people that the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) will not affect the rights and interests of bumiputras if the government were to ratify it.

He said the CPTPP has provided a cut-off policy (leeway) to protect the rights and interests of bumiputras as enshrined under the Federal Constitution when Malaysia signed the agreement in 2018.
