Funding Populism: Malaysia Gets Innovative with Budget 2019

Deputy International Trade Minister YB Dr. Ong Kian Ming and Maybank Etiqa Chief Strategy Officer Chris Eng are on hand to talk about Budget 2019, focusing on the dominant role of oil revenue in funding the Budget, and the repercussions on Malaysia’s path to fiscal consolidation and the reaction among global ratings agencies to this development.

The duo also discuss the Budget’s reaction to capital market and currency fund flows, the RM4b airport REIT, new taxes, private consumption as an economic driver, the National Auto Policy and the third national car and US-China trade disagreements.
