KUALA LUMPUR: Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak took to Twitter tonight to comment on Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng's remark that the country's economy remains strong with solid fundamentals.
Referring to a news article published by The Star, Najib said he found it odd that the country's economy went from being in crisis to remaining strong in a short period of time.
"I find it odd how fast the country's economy changed from apparently being in crisis and a failure before the 14th General Election (GE14) to being strong and solid.
"In just over two weeks?" Najib wrote on his account @NajibRazak.
Lim, yesterday, told reporters that Malaysia's economic fundamentals were still intact, noting that the new government would strive to make the country's fiscal position more sustainable.
"In the finance sector, for example, it is still strong and banks are stable because of (having) high capitalisation and with low non-performing loans...and liquidity in the funds or capital market are high,” he was quoted as saying by Bernama.
In the article by The Star which Najib referred to in his tweet, Lim said he was confident that after they resolve the fiscal condition, Malaysia will be even stronger.
