Mahathir can put Malaysia on the world map again

12th May, 2018

KUALA LUMPUR: The newly-formed government will once again take Malaysia to the right direction towards a high-income nation while boosting the economy and creating a conducive environment for businesses to grow, said Eversendai Corp Bhd founder Tan Sri AK Nathan.

Led by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, it will once again put Malaysia on the world map, he said. He said many people were actually suffering silently, but dared not speak up or do anything as they were scared of being implicated.

But with the new government onboard, he hoped the government would listen to the issues and problems and foster a more business-friendly environment.

Nathan hopes the new government would resolve the problems arising from the influx of foreign contractors as it deprived works for local companies.

“I hope these issues will now be tackled at a higher level,” he told Bernama on the sidelines of the MBAM Affiliate Dialogue 2018, here Friday.

In many countries, local contractors are suffering because of either procedures or policies, he said, adding that he hoped in Malaysia, the problem needed to be rectified to enable the local construction industry to seize “fantastic” opportunities moving forward.

As for Eversendai, he said 90 per cent of its businesses were overseas.

“We fly the Malaysian flag high overseas but we still need our home ground for support, only then we can expand our business further,” he said.

Nathan believes Malaysia has a clear path, thanks not just to Mahathir, who is at the helm of the government once again, but also to those who came onboard with a lot of exposure and experience.

“We need them now to turn the country around. There is our future,” he said.

The just concluded 14th General Election (GE14) saw Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) dominance in popular votes of about 50 per cent, as recorded in GE13.

The findings were based on the data of the number of votes garnered by three main parties contesting in the election.

PH led the race with 5,685,252 votes, followed by Barisan Nasional at 3,624,921 votes (or 32 per cent); and PAS 2,043,159 votes (18 per cent).

Eversendai is a leading global organisation undertaking turnkey undertakes turnkey contracts, namely delivering projects for high-rise buildings, power plants, oil and gas upstream and downstream, including process and industrial plants, as well as infrastructure and composite structures in the Asian and Middle Eastern regions. –Bernama
