Brought to you by

Scrutinising Budget 2021

Johan Merican, Director of the National Budget Office at the Ministry of Finance, responds to criticisms about the over-optimistic projected tax revenue; the allocation of RM1 billion for special projects under the Prime Minister's Department; the RM80 million to JASA which has a reputation for engaging in propaganda; the rush to launch EPF's i-Sinar instead of expanding i-Lestari; and what happens if the Budget is not approved.

Produced by: Roshan Kanesan
