THE clear announcement on Friday by Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Aziz of the 6R economic recovery plan is most welcome in these anxious times. These aspirations raise our expectations for better economic growth, fairer income distribution and better welfare for all Malaysians, regardless of race. Hence the Finance Minister’s 6R recovery plan is very welcome indeed. However, the 6R plan, together with the 2021 Budget and the now postponed 12th Malaysia Plan cannot and should not be a repeat of “old normal” policies. > The basic needs of the rakyat have to be more adequately met in the recovery plan and especially in the 12th Malaysia Plan.
