Perutusan Lim Guan Eng Sempena Hari Merdeka

Selamat Hari Raya dan Hari Merdeka

Only When We Are Malaysian First Then Can We Build A Future For Our Young And Our Young For The Future.

2011 Merdeka Message By DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 30.8.2011.

We have achieved some economic progress since our beloved first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, thundered the glorious word Merdeka seven times in Stadium Merdeka in 1957. But as much progress as we have made, one cannot help but think of the lost opportunities and the many areas where we have regressed.

The time has come for Malaysians to examine our own shortcomings objectively, abandon failed policies to adopt new ones that allow us to build the future for our young as well as build our young for the future. Much as we can build the necessary physical and digital infrastructure to world-class standards, we must also equip our young with the tools and skill sets to face the challenges of globalization.

Teng Hock Nan, do you have the guts to show your evidence?

Unless Teng Hock Nan Can Show Proof That The Penang PR State Government Has Approved Berjaya Development Plans For Penang Hill, PR Will Continue To Press BN To Come Clean On RM300 Million Scandals On Tang Hak Ju Land Scams, Pulau Jerejak And Mismanagement Of MPSP Funds.

Penang PR state government will not be distracted by baseless accusations and lies but will instead press for BN to come clean on BN’s RM300 million scandals on land scams, Pulau Jerejak and mismanagement of MPSP funds. To-date BN has refused to account and explain for the RM300 million loss in public funds:-
a) RM230 million loss by MPSP in 8 years which made MPSP bankrupt and was only rescued in 2008 when the PR state government took over(See graph);
b) RM30 million loss from sale of developable land in Pulau Jerejak to UDA; and
c) RM40 million loss resulting from the Tang Hak Ju land scam in Bukit Mertajam.

Changing Penang in a Changing World: Transforming Penang

Ladies and gentlemen thank you very much for inviting me here to speak. I come here as the Chief Minister of Penang, one of four states led by Pakatan Rakyat or the People’s Pact, the opposition coalition in Malaysia. I am from the Democratic Action Party, one of three coalition partners. I am extremely proud to be given the opportunity to govern the beautiful vibrant state of Penang and delighted to have the opportunity to speak to you. I hope by the end of my remarks you will consider coming to visit and invest in Penang, as it continues to be an attractive location for business and pleasure alike.

It is wonderful to be in Singapore. We have so much in common; shared history and people. Our bonds are deeply intertwined, culturally, politically and economically. I would like to highlight some of our common features. We are both small states that have punched above our weight economically through the hard work and creativity of our people. We have both been successes despite our size and obstacles we share. Today, more than 25%Malaysia’s exports in terms of value and volume come from Penang – more than half of the country’s electronics are produced there – and we are among the top tourist destinations in Malaysia with a record numbers of visitors. Like Singapore, we appreciate the importance of planning, a favorable market environment for investors and fiscal responsibility. We both have worked hard to put ourselves on the map internationally, and done so successfully.
