And the MySalam project which offers financial assistance of between RM4,000 to RM8,000 for those with a miscarriage. one of 45 critical illnesses.
“In fact, the PH government abolished the GST replaced by SST and repaid the GST collection amounting to RM19.4 billion. We maintained the country's international credit position despite the government having to pay tens of billions of ringgit due to the 1Malaysia Development Bhd, Tabung Haji and other related scandals.
In addition, the PH government also resumed major infrastructure projects after securing more than RM50 billion through the re-negotiation and rationalisation of previous government projects. We also accelerated the digitization process through promoting e-wallet use, creating 350,000 job opportunities for the unemployed through a RM6.5 billion MalaysiaTech project and many other initiatives.
Lim also reminded that the PH coalition that won the people’s mandate in the 2018 General Election may have different ideologies but have come to a point of common ground and bounded by the GE Manifesto.
