Top 5 At 5: Billions from Berlin

Ong Kian Ming, Former Deputy Minister, International Trade and Industry

Top 5 At 5: Billions from Berlin

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. Our Mini Popek Popek Parliament, looking at the Parliamentary Services Act, Kampung Baru's development plan, and protecting our children on social media.

2. Concerns surrounding vegetable price hikes due to a production decline in the agriculture sector. This is brought on by the lack of foreign labour, after the government announced that the unused foreign labour quota will be cancelled

3. Vendors at the bazaars being forced to hike up their prices due to the increase cost of raw goods.

4. Mavcom's announcement of a revised passenger service charge, for both domestic and international flights.

5. And our top story: PM Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's trip to Germany. What does this spell for the future of Malaysia in terms of investment?

For these stories, we heard from co-founder of Agridata Portal and owner of D&H Plantation Shahrizal Denci, nasi ayam goreng kunyit food vendor Khairul Azhar, founder of Pear Anderson Hannah Pearson, and former Deputy Minister of International Trade and Industry Ong Kian Ming.
