Why delay programme that can benefit the economy?

I HAVE been a strong supporter of the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme since it was first launched, and I sat on various government committees providing input into it. The suspension of the MM2H programme in July last year has resulted in a significant loss of income for the country.

I am writing now because it is not clear why the government has still not approved the revised programme, or advised what is happening to it. When the suspension was announced, the honourable Tourism Minister indicated a new programme would be announced at the end of 2020. That did not happen. In March this year, the minister advised that the revised programme only needed Cabinet approval. However, four months have passed and still there is no news about it.
