MB: Tourism sector, physical development focus of budget

Perak’s Budget 2022 will focus on tourism to help those in the industry whose livelihood is badly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Mentri Besar Datuk Saarani Mohamad said details would be tabled at the Perak State Assembly sitting in December.

“In principle, details of the budget have been discussed and agreed upon by the state executive council meeting.

“However, changes in the state budget are subject to the (national) Budget 2022 which will be tabled in Parliament next week,” he said.

Saarani was speaking to reporters after opening the Malaysian Armed Forces Veterans Association State Delegates’ Conference in Ipoh.

He said the state government also focused on several other sectors such as physical development and helping small and medium entrepreneurs who were affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

“If we do not make allocations for physical development expenditure, the income of contractors, sand suppliers, cement factories and hardware (outlets) will be impacted,” he said. — Bernama
