Pushing for better performance


Economist Manokaran Mottain told StarBiz that the government should be commended for its intervention policies that have helped to support the local economy

PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob’s cabinet has received a neutral report card from the investing community amid fresh goals set out for the longer-term.

While some industry people acknowledged that the government has made some good progress in managing a pandemic-stricken economy, there are also views that more could have been done.

Certain ministers such as Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz and Khairy Jamaluddin, who helm the finance and health portfolios respectively, were viewed as among those who performed relatively better.

Ismail was appointed as the ninth Prime Minister on Aug 21, replacing Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who holds the record of being Malaysia’s shortest-serving prime minister. Ismail announced his Cabinet on Aug 27.
