This is all about money money money and this shows that the Malaysian government cares about the people's wellbeings.
The Malaysian government has directed the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) to study ways to assist those earning below RM3,000 monthly to deal with the problem of increasing prices of goods and services.
Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah said the decision was made by the cabinet recently, which felt that a mechanism was needed to assist this group.
"Pemandu is looking to formulate the study into a database through a special laboratory set up for this purpose," he said in Ipoh on Sunday, 21st August 2011.
He said the laboratory would submit a summary on the study within two weeks to the Finance Ministry, before it was reviewed for inclusion in the Budget 2012.
"We expect Pemandu to complete the report within two weeks for submission to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak."
Husni said the government took a serious view of the matter because the cabinet felt that those earning below RM3,000 were greatly affected by the price increases.
Long Live Malaysia.. Long Live Najib Razak.
