PUTRAJAYA – The revised 2023 unity government budget will be focusing on small and medium enterprises (SME) as well as the green and digital economy, said Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim during the pre-budget dialogue today.

The prime minister said these three sectors will be critical, particularly in light of the current global economic slowdown stemming from multiple factors, including the Russia-Ukraine war and Covid-19 post-pandemic.

“Sometimes we are disconnected from reality. Bankers and mega corporations focus on solutions for their industries but we must not forget our goal of developing the community and the country. That’s why I use the term ‘civil society’ because this is a sustainability issue.

“We must think for both, short and long term. The nation cannot be sustainable if there are leakages, robbing the land of its timber as has happened before. Sustainability cannot be defended if there is no clear commitment on climate change.

“Thus, we need a new clear policy to regenerate our green areas,” said Anwar. – The Vibes, January 17, 2023
