RAM on the Spending Brakes?

The slide in oil prices is not good for Malaysia. In Part 1 of this series, Esther Lai, Head of Sovereign Ratings at RAM Ratings, says Malaysia's plan to meet its fiscal deficit target is going to come with a lot more containment of spending, instead of relying on increased revenue. She however feels further rationalization of subsidies is likely to be seen, rather than a budget revision.

This is a report by Wei Lynn Tang.
