PETALING JAYA: The Shared Prosperity Vision (SPV) 2030, set to roll out on Saturday (Oct 5), will be a new dawn for Malaysia, says Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.
The Economic Affairs Minister said it will drive the nation’s socio-economic development while nourishing unity among Malaysians.
The SPV 2030, a brainchild of Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, will spur sustainable national development in line with a fair and inclusive distribution of economy for all Malaysians, said Azmin.
“Malaysia is facing uncertainties of the world economy due to the trade war. This SPV will make the Malaysian economy more resilient.
“It will give new injections for the nation’s economy to leapfrog into a high-income economy, strengthen the people’s purchasing power and close the income and development gaps between classes, races and districts," said Azmin in a statement on Friday (Oct 4).
He added that the implementation of the SPV 2030 will nourish the unity among the people as well as strengthen Malaysia’s stability as a democratic nation.
“The beauty of SPV will shine when the economic gap between income groups, ethnic groups, districts and supply chains is narrowed down in the context of an ever expanding economy.
“As a result, the SPV is a new dawn in the New Malaysia era in order to defend and uphold the dignity of the people,” said Azmin.
