Can We Right Size Malaysia's Civil Service?

As Malaysia's national debt including liabilities has reached 1.5 trillion ringgit, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s administration has set their eyes on reducing opex and expanding revenue. And one elephant in the room that cannot be ignored would be the size of civil service, their emoluments and pensions. So as reduction of fiscal deficit takes priority, how should we relook at the size of civil service in Malaysia? For answers, we speak to Dr Tricia Yeoh, CEO, IDEAS.
