KUALA LUMPUR, July 7 — Budget 2021 to be unveiled on Nov 6, will be framed across 4 broad themes — caring for the people, steering the economy, sustainable living and enhancing public service delivery, according to Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Aziz.
“First on caring for the people, the first goals of the Prihatin Rakyat Economic Stimulus Package (PRIHATIN) and the National Economic Recovery Plan (PENJANA) packages are to protect the Rakyat and to empower the Rakyat, respectively.
“Moreover, Malaysians have shown the will to build a better society and have demonstrated it admirably during the nation’s toughest months,” he said in his speech during Invest Malaysia 2020 today.
Tengku Zafrul said movements such as #KitaJagaKita (or We Care for Us) have witnessed Malaysians — young and old – coming together with non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and corporations to help their fellow Malaysians.
“From gathering donations for front liners to providing food for vulnerable segments of society, the Malaysian spirit of unity in diversity shine bright,” he added.
