THE government is not telling the truth in saying Malaysia’s economy is improving as data and figures prove otherwise, said prominent economist Dr Muhammed Abdul Khalid.

The economist said there were several telltale signs to show that the economy was suffering in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.

These include the contraction in the gross domestic product (GDP), the increase in the number of unemployed and under-employed, the rising poverty rate as well as the high level of suicides in the country. – July 9, 2021.
