Yesterday, I was invited to speak to a number of CEOs in their usual TEC session. During the feedback and Q&A session, many of the CEOs and business owners were not very bullish about the Malaysian economy.
Their main concern is the state of our domestic politics. Is the NEP debate affecting their confidence level? Yes. I think the debate and the reintroduction of the NEP has done us a great disservice.
Outright, we know that the NEP was highjacked by the politicians. The original NEP, introduced in 1970, is no longer adequate to bring us forward. In the last 37 years, the world has changed.
But why haven't we?
If you are affected by the NEP or are concern about the domestic politics. Let me hear from you.
