Tun Dr Mahathir Economic Stimulus Package

Malaysia will go ahead with its economic stimulus package to offset the negative impact brought about by the Covid-19 outbreak. This confirmation comes in the midst of widespread political uncertainty following the dissolution of the Malaysian Cabinet earlier this week.

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who is acting as interim prime minister following his resignation from the official position on Monday, will be announcing the economic stimulus package tomorrow 27 February at 4pm. In a post on Twitter, Dr Mahathir said that he had just finished a meeting with top officials in the Ministry of Finance regarding the economic stimulus package.
