BUDGET STRATEGIES FOR ECONOMIC TRANSFORMATION
by DAP Economic Bureau


Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak will be announcing the country's budget for 2010 on Friday, 23 October 2009 in Parliament. This will also represent his very first budget as the Prime Minister, and it comes at a most critical time as the country seek to recover from one of the worst global recessions in living memory. How will the Budget affect the man-on-the-street? What is the outlook for the Malaysian economy? Has the new Prime Minister done all the necessary to transform Malaysia's economy?

The event will serve as a twin launch of the books listed above, one, a “Dummies” guide to understanding our national budget, and the other, an in-depth analysis of what should be done; which caters to readers who are both new to finance and economics or those who are well-versed in the subject.

In conjunction with the launch, a forum will be held to discuss the Budget 2010:
Date : 26 October 2009 (Mon)
Time : 8pm
Venue : KL Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall , Jalan Maharajalela
The Panelists for the forum will include:

  • Liew Chin-Tong, MP for Bukit Bendera
  • Dr Dzulkifli Ahmad, MP for Kuala Selangor
