KOTA KINABALU: Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman has described the 2013 Budget as reflecting Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s continuous commitment and concern towards the needs and interests of Sabah and its people.
Musa said Najib had once again proven his sincerity towards the people in Sabah through allocations for various development projects and initiatives as announced under the Budget.
“It takes into account the interests, prosperity, wishes and the needs of all groups of people – the farmers, fishermen, youth, women, civil servants, the private sector, the disabled as well as business and corporate communities.
“I particularly thank the Prime Minister, who has through this people’s budget continued to give attention and commitment to us in Sabah,” he told reporters at Sri Gaya after watching the live telecast of the tabling of the Budget yesterday.
He said the state government also highly welcomed the announcement of RM386 million to standardise the prices of daily goods in Sabah with that in PeninsularMalaysia.
Musa, who is also Finance Minister, also commended the federal government for continuing the Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M), which now covers single individuals with incomes below RM2,000.
Describing the 2013 Budget as ‘people-oriented and people-friendly’, he said the new government spending plan was sincere, inclusive and had realistically taken into account the interests and needs of all groups.
He added the new budget, which also emphasises on human capital development, would be able to boost Malaysia’s economic development towards achieving high income status.
“As such, I hope all parties, namely leaders, civil servants, the private sector and the citizens in general wil continue strengthening their commitment and work with the federal government to realise the agenda of this Budget, especially in terms of the state’s development and the prosperity of its people,” he said.
