  • well done
    debts need to be pared down to rejuvinate the economic system
    current a/c deficit also needs to be narrowed
    just look at the thai baht
    fundamentalism eventually the 'be all end all'
    imported inflation from an unstable weak currency can negate wage increases

  • Do the umno racist morons have anything to say on this? No because they cannot comprehend the complexity of the issue. Hence their only cry is on rae race & religion issues which need no brainer

  • YB LGE... please document all your initiatives since your appointment as Minister.. The issues; the resolutions; the outcomes: the benefits.
    Document and publish and communicate these achievements every quarter (like a quarterly report) via print and online communications.
    Let the people from urban cities to rural kampungs learn and understand exactly what the PH government is doing for the benefit of the people and nation. This will also silence all critics.
    This communication is important to ensure PHs continued presence in administrating the government..
