2016 Feb 7 - Chinese New Year 2016 message from Melanie Chia

Chinese New Year 2016 message from Melanie Chia

As the new lunar year draws near, it is time of the year again for Malaysians of the Chinese decent to prepare and usher in the new year wishing that this new year will bring each and everyone in the family good health and great prosperity.

Like every Malaysians, we too wish that the year of the Golden Monkey will bring us hope for greater PEACE, HARMONY and PROSPERITY!

Since the implementation of the GST in April last year and the depreciation of the ringgit, we have encountered rising costs of living and those of us doing business have to cope with the rising cost of doing business and live with dwindling margins.

The impact of the drop in oil prices internationally had even forced our government to review the budget which was tabled barely a few months ago.

The issues on the performance of government linked companies and the elusive donations by the Saudi King which were highlighted by the international media had also dented the image of the country.

Political squabbles at the national level created even more delusions! To add salt to the wound, the newly announced increase in the foreign workers' levy will further dampen the economy.

2016 is not going to be an easy year. Already faced with the increasing costs of almost everything, and by June when the Price Control and Anti-Profiteering Regulation 2014 comes to an end, there is the likelihood that we will see further increase in prices of our daily consumables.

In fact, the government should get TNB and SESB to revise electricity tariffs downward immediately as this can directly and immediately helped to bring down cost of living and help local manufacturers and service providers to bring down their costs of production which could eventually be translated into lower cost of living.

Further, when revising the Budget 2016, the Government could have announced a waiver on income tax payment for income earners at the middle income level and below, just as the Government did during the financial crisis in 1998.

Malaysians are faced with economical and political challenges and a growing threat in security. Although some of these problems might be unavoidable, we Sabahan should have the capability to lessen the severity of these impacts, by getting back our autonomy.

In order to achieve that, Sabahan needs to increase our awareness on our rights guaranteed by MA63, and come to understand the importance of the roles of local political parties.

Take Sarawak as an example, many rights and autonomy have been regained because their local ruling party is not in direct control of the Malayan power nor be sacrificed for the interests of Malaya.

Knowing the woes should not bring about greater negativity but instead, these woes should become reminders as we gear up into the new year and be prepared for the upcoming circumstances.

We should continue to be steadfast of the rights and benefits of Sabahans and together, we should garner our strength in unity and protect what is ours!

"United We Build, Together We Progress"

Wishing All A Progressive New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai!

From: Melanie Chia Chui Ket, Deputy President, Sabah Progressive Party
