Muhyiddin: Solid support essential to continue high-impact projects
KUCHING: Solid support from the people is crucial for the present government to continue efforts to implement high-impact projects that will bring considerable benefits to the people.
Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said Monday such high-impact projects had been carried out for the past three years through the implementation of the Economic Transformation Programme that emphasised on raising the people's income.
Speaking at the official opening of the RM46.6mil Medan Niaga Satok here, he said although Malaysia had generally been successful in achieving significant development, what was more important was its positive impact on the rakyat.
"It's meaningless if the state or country is developed but the people are still poor. The Government has surplus funds but the people have nothing," he said.
Muhyiddin said Medan Niaga Satok was also a successful project in generating a positive impact in helping the rakyat, particularly the farmers, in raising their income. - Bernama
