SUPP Central Women Section Chairman Kho Teck Wan is in the opinion that the Finance Minister Department should focus on trade initiatives that will generate more income to the country, instead of turning to rakyat for national income.
According to Tun Daim, under the Minister of Finance, 8 millions inquiry letters were sent out to rakyat from the Inland Revenue.
Not only that, new taxes were introduced such as the oversea travel tax, soda tax, and e-commerce tax. City in Pakatan Harapan’s State such as Petaling Jaya now impose license and signage fee not only on advertising outside the commercial building, but signage inside the building as well.
All these moves will increase the cost of goods which will then be transferred to the consumers. In view of the increasing cost of living, I would like to urge the Minister of Finance to change the strategy, focusing on how to increase national income through other avenues.
