KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is on track towards continued progress, thanks to the political stability and peace brought about within the first year of the unity government’s administration of the country, says Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
The Prime Minister said the government was a team that prioritised political stability and strove to introduce clear policies to boost Malaysians’ prosperity in various aspects, including quality education, healthcare and direct aid to the people.
"It’s time to focus on developing the country and to keep negative elements away as I am convinced that if we can do this in a year, we will lift Malaysia to greater heights in the region.
"Political observers, economists and investors all view it this way,” Anwar said on TV3’s special interview programme entitled ‘A Year With The Madani Government: The Prime Minister’s Endeavour’ that aired live on Tuesday (Dec 5) night.
The Prime Minister said that what was important was the people’s comfort and the government was committed to helping Malaysians affected by the rising cost of goods through various measures, including the implementation of targeted subsidies and increasing the Rahmah Cash Aid (STR).
