PUTRAJAYA, May 11, 2015:
The people will be given an explanation with regards to the earnings of the country from the Goods and Services Tax (GST) received by the government.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the matter would be explained transparently because the people wanted to know what the extra money that was collected was for.
He said the government would explain the benefits of the extra money in detail so there was no confusion about the move.
“The information will be presented to the people and then they will know that the extra money was used for their welfare and also the nation’s,” he said at the Prime Minister’s Department’s monthly assembly.
Najib guaranteed the government’s pledge to focus on the people’s issues.
He said when the government was strong again and the economy better, Malaysia was capable of being a nation that could move forward.
“If there are other problems, we give it time.
“I am confident that we will get to recover from these problems that worry us if we work together as one family and team to help each other out.”
