The Finance Ministry has launched its Budget 2021 consultation roadshow in a bid to gather insights into the Malaysian public’s views and plights, particularly those affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz, the roadshow will ensure that Budget 2021 covers the four main themes that it aims to focus on. The themes include caring for the people, steering the economy, sustainable living, and enhancing public service delivery. Additionally, the upcoming national Budget also intends to look for ways to alleviate the impact from the movement control order (MCO).

“I hope through the consultation approach, we can get the views of all quarters before Budget 2021 is tabled. This marks the first time a Budget consultation is made starting with the states – previously it began at the Finance Ministry level – and Melaka is the first state,” said Tengku Zafrul.

Tengku Zafrul also commented that the consultation roadshow is the best time for the government to go on the ground and listen to the problems faced by the people, industries, and associations. The views and feedback gathered will be submitted to the relevant ministries for further action, and no effort will be spared to consider the public’s recommendations.

The Budget 2021 consultation roadshow is expected to end in October. Meanwhile, Budget 2021 is scheduled to be tabled on 6 November 2020, after having been postponed from 2 October following a revision to the meeting schedules in the third term for the 14th Parliament. Tengku Zafrul had also previously assured that the upcoming national Budget will take into account current Covid-19 economic factors.
