Bauxite mining

This morning we had a Cabinet meeting, and now we leave it up to the industry. If the industry wants to manage this environment issue, it can be done in three months. But if it cannot carry this out in three months, then we will extend the moratorium.

What compensation? You (reporters) know, there are rakyat who want the bauxite mining to continue.

Based on the complaints, MACC has found there are elements of corruption by certain quarters involved in bauxite mining activities. We view this seriously and will not hesitate to take action against those involved in corruption and abusing their powers under the MACC Act 2009.

Cost of living

I would like to go to a country that the cost of living last year was 10,000 but this year it goes down to 9,000 and next year to 8,000, there’s no such thing. Cost of living will always increase. Shouting is no point because cost of living is an issue for everyone... But importantly we must change our attitude to become a nation of entrepreneurs.
