Best course of action for budget 2020

I AGREE with the economists who say that the federal government’s 2020 budget should not be so fixated on keeping the deficit ratio low at the expense of growth.

Public sector needs further reforms, say experts

PETALING JAYA: Further reforms are needed to improve the Malaysian public sector and increase its effectiveness, say experts. Institute for Demo­cracy and Economic Affairs (Ideas) director of research Laurence Todd said that while the Malaysian public sector had historically performed well in the region, its progress was at risk of slowing down. “In the case of public sector efficiency, the cumulative cost of corruption, lack of competition, in both appointments and procurement, and low levels of openness are taking their toll and holding back Malaysia’s development,” he said.
