Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 9.8.2016.

The Education Ministry Should Admit Its Defects And Revamp The National Education Curriculum For Failing To Be Malaysian With Only 4% Of Non-Malays Enrolled In National Schools As Compared To The Greater Diversity And Malaysianness Of Chinese Schools With 18% Non-Chinese Students.

The Education Ministry should admit its defects and revamp the National Education Curriculum for failing to be Malaysian with only 4% of non-Malays enrolled in national schools as compared to the greater diversity and Malaysianness of Chinese schools with 18% non-Chinese students. Whilst we would agree with Education Minister Dato Seri Mahdzir Khalid that Chinese schools would never be a mainstream school in 10 years time and it impossible to replace national schools, Mahdzir must concede that national schools have failed to promote greater diversity and a more Malaysian character when even Chinese schools are more multi-racial than national schools.

Speech by YAB Tuan Lim Guan Eng, Chief Minister of Penang, at the Penang International Property Conference(e/c)

Speech by YAB Tuan Lim Guan Eng, Chief Minister of Penang, at the Penang International Property Conference
on 5 August 2016.

I wish to thank the organizer of this event, the Penang State Housing Committee and Penevents Sdn Bhd, for organizing this mid-term review of the Penang International Property (PIP) Summit Conference. I am pleased to be here once again to give all of you an over-view of what has happened where the State’s initiative to attract investment which will have an impact on the property sector and what is to be expected in the next few months before we draw a close to 2016.

Malaysia has been buffeted by economic headwinds some due to the global economic slowdown such as the sharp drop in oil prices, others self-inflicted such as the RM50 billion 1MDB scandal that caused the Ringgit to plummet in value and the imposition of GST. GST should only be imposed on high-income countries like Singapore. Middle income countries take at least 2-3 years to recover and the timing is poorly planned and a failure of policy management. Thailand has GST and its economy has performed poorly. Singapore has managed to weather the ill-effects as a high-income economy. Whilst many external factors have impeded Malaysia as a whole, Penang remains resilient, helped by the manufacturing and services sector as well as increase in tourism.
