COST OF LIVING

National development will mean nothing if the people continue to live in hardship and marginalised from the spillover of development.[…] As such, the Government will continue to strive harder to improve the programmes for the people’s wellbeing in the effort to reduce the increase of the cost of living.
Tun Dr Mahathir Bin Mohamad
Prime Minister of Malaysia

PUTRAJAYA, Dec 17 -- The new Bandar Malaysia development will not be exclusively for the rich, as the government has revised the development plan to include 10,000 affordable housing units, said Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. The earlier plan devised by the previous government only provided for the construction of 5,000 units of affordable houses.

PETALING JAYA, Nov 30 -- The government will seek ways to resolve the issue of the ringgit's depreciation, as it is a source of concern among Malaysians, said Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. “One of the reasons (for the depreciation) is the devaluation by certain parties. Previously, our currency was quoted at 3.80 against the US dollar, but now it is 4.20. Due to (the easing of) our currency's value, everything that we buy has become more expensive,” he told reporters after attending the Muslim Welfare Organisation Malaysia (Perkim) 58th national annual general meeting here today. Dr Mahathir was ...
