MADANI economic narrative to be launched in August, says PM Anwar

KUALA LUMPUR, June 12 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim who introduced the Madani concept is expected to launch its economic narrative in August.

He said the Madani narrative aims to provide each ministry and agency in clear directions in implementing the unity government’s economic plans, which include the creation of a high valued sustainable economy, expanding social protections by empowering individuals and reforming the labour market.

He added that the government will continue existing policies at the same time.

“We have some economic analysis that we touched on briefly in the Madani handbook but the Economy Ministry and other ministries together with the private sector are involved in stakeholder meetings to formulate some of the policies I mentioned,” he said in a press conference after chairing a National Economic Action Council (NEAC) meeting in Putrajaya.

Anwar said the narrative framework will comprise several economic pillars that will be executed in stages, including the development of green technology, prioritisation of investment and labour management.

He also said economic reforms are also expected to be finalised in upcoming NEAC meetings by taking account of present challenges in the global economy.
