The strengthening economy today is the result of government policies.
Prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the ringgit had been on the upswing, coupled with high economic growth and the stock market at its strongest in three years.
“Inflation is low and joblessness is well under control at four per cent, proving that government policies are bearing fruit. This has created a conducive business environment, with high consumer confidence,” he said.
Najib, who is also Umno president, was speaking to reporters after chairing the party’s supreme council meeting at Menara Dato’ Onn.
He said the ability of the government in running the country was in contrast with the opposition which was in disarray.
Najib said the people have no confidence that the opposition can bring political stability.
“For sure, if we were to compare ourselves to the opposition with what has been happening these past few days, it shows that they are weak internally.
“This certainly does not build confidence in the people on their ability to ensure a stable political environment for the country, nor how they can carry and uphold an economic agenda that would bring a huge transformation for the nation,” he said.
