YB Lim Guan Eng, Minister of Finance

12-Nov-18 08:05

Brought to you by


Finance Minister YB Lim Guan Eng spends a full hour fielding live questions on Malaysia’s fiscal position, Budget 2019, oil revenues and the measures it is instilling to ensure the country’s financial future.

He also discusses Malaysia’s debt position, the introduction of new taxes, the inclusion of the private sector in growing the economy and recent measures like the Airport REIT, P2P crowdfunding for affordable home ownership and the B40 healthcare insurance scheme.

Also discussed were 1MDB and the latest restitutionary measures particularly from Goldman Sachs and the ongoing investigations into Jho Low, Tim Leissner and Roger Ng.

He also fielded questions on Tun Daim’s role, the China-US trade war and his ministry’s (and his) communications strategy following their landmark election in GE14.
