Budget 2008: Who Benefits?

Looks like my post-budget work hasn't completed. So just some quick announcements here. There are going to be plenty of discussions and forums on the Government's Budget 2008, yes, the much touted pre-election budget today at 4pm (and I'll be stationed at the Parliament).

For those who are interested to read the DAP version of the Budget, you can now download both the English version as well as the Chinese version. The Malay version is "work in progress".

But for a start, here's what you can do to find out more this weekend:

1. SinChew Budget Discussion Forum (Mandarin)

I'll be speaking tonight (yes, that's this evening!) on the Budget presented by the Prime Minister at the Sin Chew Jit Poh Auditorium in Petaling Jaya. The forum will be in Mandarin together with 3 other eminent speakers. Details are as follows:
Date: 7 Sep 2007
Time: 8.00 pm
Venue: Sin Chew Jit Poh Auditorium, Petaling Jaya
2. Malaysian First: Budget 2008 - Who Benefits? (Mandarin)

The first in a series of forums to be held by the DAP after the Prime Minister announces the budget will be on this Sunday (9th Sep) evening (7.30pm) at the KL & Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall. This one is a Mandarin forum:
