June 16, 2015 , by admin2
DAVOS (Switzerland), Jan 21 (Bernama) — The opposition claim that the Malaysian economy is in crisis is absurd and irresponsible, says International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed. He said the baseless accusation made by the opposition, which compared the country’s current economic situation to the likes of the 1997/1998 economic financial crisis, was not based on facts and indepth research. “In actual fact, in matters concerning core issues such as the nation’s economy, racial ties and religion, we must think as one. “In this aspect, it is clear that the opposition is attempting to shake the confidence of people and the international community of Malaysia’s economic prospects. “This is an irresponsible action,” he told Malaysian reporters on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum which began here on Tuesday.

June 16, 2015 , by admin2
After years of planning and negotiations on trade in goods and services among the 10 member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) may finally emerge by the end of this year. The more established and sophisticated businesses in the 600 million-strong region have already positioned themselves accordingly. The challenge will be to ensure that small and medium-sized enterprises also benefit from the creation of a common market and production base in the region. One business that is almost certain to do well is AirAsia, which has expanded its routes across the region. Speaking at the recently concluded World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, the Malaysian low-cost carrier’s CEO Tony Fernandes called for the creation of a single aviation authority for ASEAN and expressed optimism about the future of the region. “A superb ASEAN meeting with 10 ministers and top business leaders.
