KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 15 – There is a possibility the 2015 Budget will be restructured, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak. “I will come out with a statement (on this) next week,” he told reporters after receiving the flood relief assistance from China here today.
Najib was asked whether the government would undertake a budget reallocation for this year given several unexpected major events such as the falling global oil prices as well as the floods that hit the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Earlier, Najib received the aid from China’s Ambassador to Malaysia, Dr Huang Huikang.
Among them were 2,950 units of tents, 220 set generators, 400 water pumps with 1.1 kilowatt capacity, 45 roll water hoses and 60 water purification sets with 500-litre/hour capacity. Also present were Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Muhyiddin Yassin, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussien, Home Minister Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi and Chief Secreatary General to the government Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa.
