Budget 2022: Is Environmental Sustainability on the Agenda?

Sharan Raj, Central Committee Member, Parti Sosialis Malaysia

Budget 2022: Is Environmental Sustainability on the Agenda?

We dissect Budget 2022, and discuss if conservation of the environment was prioritised in this year's budget with Sharan Raj, a Central Committee Member of Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM). We also focus on the government's plans to provide full exemption from import and excise duties as well as sales tax for Electric Vehicles (EV), to support the development of the local EV industry, and the impacts of this decision.

Brought to you by Mah Sing; Reinvent Spaces. Enhance Life.

Editor's note: It's the BMW iX3 that will be priced at RM250k - RM270k, and not the BMW iX, as mentioned by Sharan in the interview.
