Najib tables Budget 2013


KUALA LUMPUR -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak today tabled Budget 2013 in the Dewan Rakyat, his fourth as finance minister.

Clad in a green Baju Melayu, Najib began tabling the budget, themed "Prospering the Nation, Enhancing Wellbeing of the Rakyat: A Promise Fulfilled", at 4pm, and the event was carried live over the major radio and television stations. With the 13th general election looming, Malaysians are eager to know what the budget has in store for them amid concerns over bread-and-butter issues affecting their quality of life. The people are looking forward to the government addressing these issues while ensuring that the country's economic health remains in the pink against the backdrop of global economic uncertainties. In the run-up to today's tabling of the budget, economists, politicians as well as the man in the street and everyone in between had been airing their views on what they thought Najib should include in the budget. -- BERNAMA
