PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has assured Malaysians that he will work to get the country’s policy basics right to ensure economic growth and the betterment of the people. The Prime Minister said it was the responsibility of a leader to make decisions that were in the best interest of the people. “I may NOR shall promise an overnight solution, but I shall [NOT will] work to get the policy basics right to ensure we keep our economic growth. “This is a level many in richer countries can only dream of to create the conditions for jobs growth, and to ensure we have employment policies that recognise the changing reality of Malaysia, especially increased life expectancy,” he said in a post titled “Counting Down to Friday” on his website, http://www.1malaysia.com.my, yesterday. Najib said he has listened to the stories of ordinary Malaysians, including difficulties in buying a home, providing children with a good education and supporting their family and elders on their salary which strengthened his resolve to make the right decision for the rakyat. “One thing must be made clear: these problems will not be resolved quickly, and neither will they disappear completely. “I cannot make such a promise that is not humanly possible to fulfil although some may lead you to think otherwise. “But they will not be able to tell you what it will ultimately cost you,” he said. Najib, who is also Finance Minister, said the decision-making process for Budget 2012 reflected Malaysia’s economic complexity and diversity. “There is no straightforward, one-size-fits-all answer,” he said, adding that strategies must be re-calibrated to suit the present environment. He pointed out that just like adopting a new and appropriate policy on terrorism and security including replacing the Internal Security Act, the country needed an economic approach based on the realities of Malaysia’s growth towards becoming an economic power in the 21st Century. Najib said the Government would continue to take measures to explain these decisions and what they meant for all Malaysians. He welcomed Malaysians to share and provide feedback to him through his website, Facebook or Twitter. Also, he has invited the public to take part in a poll on his website to tell him which of the four areas bills and necessities, buying a home, saving for old age and starting a family is their biggest priority.
