No Wonder Malaysia’s Economy Is In A State Of Crisis If We Are Led By Dummies Pretending To Know Accounting (e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 4.1.2017.

No Wonder Malaysia’s Economy Is In A State Of Crisis If We Are Led By Dummies Pretending To Know Accounting Or Malaysians Facing A Water Rationing Crisis With Syarikat Perkhidmatan Air Negara(SPAN) Led By Liang Teck Meng!

No wonder Malaysia’s economy is in a state of crisis if we are led by dummies pretending to know accounting or Malaysians facing a water rationing crisis with Syarikat Perkhidmatan Air Negara(SPAN) led by Liang Teck Meng! I had wanted to ignore Gerakan Secretary-General and MP for Simpang Renggam Liang Teck Meng for his childish and irresponsible statement questioning Penang’s undoubted success in recording annual budget surpluses, with total accumulated surplus of RM574 million since 2008.

Penang Would Have Recorded RM1,074 Million In Accumulated Surplus Since 2008 If RM500 Million Had Not Been Allocated For The Public & Affordable Housing Fund Out Of The RM658 Million In Land Sales.(e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 2.1.2017.

Penang would have recorded RM1,074 million in accumulated surplus since 2008 if RM500 million had not been allocated for the Public & Affordable Housing Fund. This RM500 million Public & Affordable Housing Fund was taken out of the RM658 million in land sales by the state government, clearly showing that land sales was not the reason for the annual surpluses of the state government, which amounted to RM574 million since 2008.

The Penang State Government Will Continue To Revive And Revitalised Past Abandoned Or Failed Projects In the Services Sector Especially Tourism, To Be The Main Economic Driver In 2017.

The Penang state government will continue to revive and revitalised past abandoned or failed projects in the services sector especially tourism, to be the main economic driver in 2017. Even though manufacturing sector will play an important role in our economy, its contribution to Penang’s GDP last year has dropped to 45% compared to 50% for the services sector.

DAP 2017 New Year Message(e/c)

DAP 2017 New Year Message By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 31.12.2016.

Make 2017 A Year To Remind Everyone That It Is Because Of Our Differences That We Are Malaysian And Proud To Be One – Whilst Defending Truth, Justice And Basic Human Rights Are Important; Economic Security And Shared Prosperity Will Determine Whether We Can Protect Our Children’s Future From Being Stolen.

DAP wishes 30 million Malaysians a Happy New Year for 2017. 2016 was a challenging year with double-standards being the new normal in Malaysia. Violations of basic human rights descended to new depths, until Zunar can be arrested and charged for sedition because his cartoons are viewed as a national threat; truth treated like a disposable diaper where lies are worshipped by the BN-controlled mass media; and worse of all, those fighting corruption are labelled as corrupt whilst the corrupt, who robbed us of billions of US dollars escape scot-free.

The Penang state government wishes both Penangites and the record number of tourists here a Merry Christmas.(e/c)

Penang Christmas Day Message By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 25.12.2016.

The Penang state government wishes both Penangites and the record number of tourists here a Merry Christmas. 1.6 million Penangites must remain united in fighting religious extremism, racism and corruption as well as stand steadfast against those who try to bully the public by using the weapons of money politics, lies and fear.

We must uphold rule of law that is colour-blind and reject racists who try to look at every action through the racial lens of being either anti-Chinese, anti-Malay or anti-Indian. Enforcement action taken against a Chinese or a Muslim, does not make the state government anti-Chinese or anti-Muslim.

DAP wishes a Merry Christmas to all Malaysians. DAP also expresses our deepest condolences to the 14 persons in a bus who were killed in a horrific accident in Muar and pray that the other injured can recover.(e/c)

DAP Christmas Day Message By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 24.12.2016.

This year has been a challenging one with an economic downturn which is expected to continue next year. However, Malaysians should not give up on pursuing a democracy that promises them both freedom and economic prosperity, which must include economic opportunity, employment, education, social security, adequate health care and human security.

A democracy that promises both freedom and economic security must work for 30 million Malaysians, not just for the wealthy or the power elites and their cronies. The European Union once offered a vision of this democracy with their ‘four freedoms’, the freedom of movement of goods, people, services and capital over borders. However economic stagnation and social disruption, exacerbated by the refuges crisis has caused the four freedoms to unravel and perhaps even break down.

BANK NEGARA MALAYSIA’S MEASURE REQUIRING EXPORTERS TO CONVERT 75% OF FOREIGN EXCHANGE PROCEEDS TO RINGGIT MALAYSIA HARMS THE INVESTMENT CLIMATE IN PENANG AND MALAYSIA

The Penang State Government wishes to highlight to Yang Berhormat Dato’ Sri the recent announcement by the Financial Markets Committee (FMC), in collaboration with Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) on the initiative to develop the onshore financial market, which has caused concern to the State Government and exporters that FMC’s measure will harm the investment climate and reduce Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) into Malaysia.

Guarantees 1.6 Million Penangites And Investors Continuous Water Supply Without Any Water Rationing Until 2030(e/c)

Winter Solstice Message By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 21.12.2016.

The Penang state government wishes a Happy Winter Solstice and hopes that the tradition of family reunions will be celebrated in the spirit of goodwill, respect and love amongst 1.6 million Penangites of different faiths, ethnicity and cultural backgrounds.

The Winter Solstice celebration is only meaningful when all communities are assured that the basic infrastructure and amenities such as water, electricity, telecommunication and digital connectivity are supplied without interruption. Water supply is turning into a critical issue in Malaysia as a result of climate change. Climate change causes long drought that dries up water dams and reduces our water tables.

Opening Of Penag Science Cafe @ Alma

SPEECH BY CHIEF MINISTER OF PENANG DURING THE OPENING OF PENANG SCIENCE CAFÉ @ALMA ON 17 DECEMBER 2016

I am very happy to announce today the official launch of Penang Science Café @Alma. This is an effort under the Penang Science Cluster, a strategic initiative of the Penang State Government in collaboration with both industry and academia.

For Penang to continue to grow, we need talented and innovative people in science and technology. As you know, the % and standards of students taking up science in upper Secondary Schools is dropping year by year. This is evident from the PISA (Program for International Student Assessment) rankings in 2012 released by The Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) on student performance in mathematics, reading, and science, scores for Malaysia over the past decade, where our 15 years old secondary school students performed in the bottom third when ranked with over 70 other countries, even losing to other emerging countries like Vietnam and Thailand.

谴责《星洲日报》及《光明日报》就同一课题,只刊登马华攻击行动党之文告,而不刊登由首长兼行动党秘书长之声明,根本是助纣为虐。

槟州首席部长、民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2016年12月16日在吉隆坡发表的声明:

我在本周三(2016年12月14日),就马华知知丁宜州议员许福光,在玻璃市州立法议会通过2016年(修正)伊斯兰法行政法案时选择放弃投票权利一事,发表声明,要求无法捍卫世俗体制、没有兑现承诺的马华总会长廖中莱,若有原则,应该辞职谢罪。

唯,从12月15日至 16日,我的声明并没有获得《星洲日报》或《光明日报》的采用。尽管媒体编采人员有权筛选有意刊登的内容,但让人感到遗憾的是,就同一课题,马华陈德钦所发表的声明,却获得这两家媒体的刊登(分别刊登于今日PP08版及B6版)。

此举证明了上述两家媒体,与《马来前锋报》已没有什么分别,只选择录用对国阵有利、攻击反对党的新闻,却选择不采用行动党领袖的文告。

当然我不会像对待《马来前锋报》般的态度来对待这两家华文媒体,但我也在此说明,每一个人的容忍度都是有底线的,特别是对于助纣为虐之辈。要强调的是,这已不是这些媒体第一次在不刊登我的文告的同时,却刊登攻击我的文告。

这将是我最后一次针对类似偏差待遇而发表的声明。

Misrepresentation given by some BN-controlled newspapers(e/c)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 16.12.2016.

I wish to correct the misrepresentation given by some BN-controlled newspapers that Penang Development Corporation earned RM 1.7 billion from selling land since 2008. This is untrue. From 2008-2015, PDC sold RM 1.94 billion worth of land for industrial and mixed development purposes. PDC recorded a net profit of RM 147 million from the land sales of RM 1.94 billion.
