5 transformation measures for Malaysia

Proposals which would have given meaning to 2012 Budget as a National Transformation Policy

The theme of of the 2012 Budget is: “National Transformation Policy: Welfare for the Rakyat, Wellbeing of the Nation.”

It is supposed to be a very important budget as it is open up a new decade of National Transformation Policy or DTN effective from 2011 to 2020 when Malaysia is to become developed and high-income nation.

The National Transformation Policy is the final lap of development policies starting with the New Economic Policy 1971-1990, National Development Policy 1991-2000 and the national Vision Policy 2001-2010.

But is there “transformational” in the 2012 Budget which is to usher in a decade of transformation in Malaysia? I can’t find anything transformational or even visionary at all.

If the 2012 Budget is a transformational one ushering a decade of transformations to make Malaysia increasingly competitive, inclusive, sustainable and prosperous, then it would have contained all or most of the following policies and programmes:

1. Affirmative policies based on meritocracy and need.

2. Open Tenders for all government contracts.

3. No Tolerance for Corruption with ll-out war against corruption, without or favour – starting with Sarawak and Sabah with establishment of special anti-corruption task force in each state.

4. Taking immediate steps to restore public confidence in the independence, professionalism and integrity of the key national institution s – esp. Judiciary, AG’s office, Police, MACC and Election Commission.

5. Increase of oil royalties from 5% to 20% for the oil royalties – with the 20% oil royalty for Sabah and Sarawak devoted to the welfare and wellbeing of the ordinary Sabahans and Sarawakians and not for he benefit of a handful of powerful people in the two states.

    Suddenly…a Santa Clause Budget.
    Najib looking for love and trust from all Malaysians.
    This idea of this can be considered an idea from a genius or an idiot….depending how much Malaysians know about Najib.
    But some keep their brains shut off and whatever Najib says are all good…….nothing bad.
    These are the idiots…hypocrites.. …opportunists…puppets that we need to ignore…no cure.
