KUALA LUMPUR: The Najib administration’s ambitious Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) is but a grandiose blueprint that has all but the necessary reforms needed to revitalise the flagging economy, DAP Klang MP and economist Charles Santiago said today.

Santiago said much of the modus operandi of the projects identified in the ETP were carbon copies of those under the Mahathir administration where the economy relied chiefly on pump-priming activities.

“What we are seeing under the ETP is a massive infrastructure roll-up for the next 10 years when we already have excessive property market hangover,” he told FMT.

“Where is the transformation? There is no transformation of the economy or of such because the main drive to the ETP is exactly what (Dr) Mahathir (Mohamad) did when he was the prime minister,” he added.

The ETP, through the 12 national key economic area labs, had identified 131 entry point projects to raise US$444 billion (RM1.4 trillion) of private money needed to transform the country into a high-income nation by 2020.

Santiago pointed out that most of the projects identified are infrastructural, such as the KL mass transit system, the high-speed rail system to Singapore and Penang and the construction of a huge oil storage facility next to Singapore.

Apart from the fact that it reflects the lack of innovation-driven market under the ETP, Santiago noted that scepticism pervades as to whether the private sector would respond.

“Where is the evidence to show that the private sector is going to take up the projects?” he asked. He said that for the past decade, the growth of domestic and foreign private investments in the country had merely seen a paltry 3% to 4% increase.

No institutional reform under ETP

The Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) said it had identified investments worth RM1.4 trillion over 10 years, of which 60% would come from the private sector, 32% from
government-linked companies and 8% from the government.

Pemandu, led by former corporate captain and Minister in the Prime Minister Department Idris Jala, has also gone on a vigorous campaign to bridge the public-private gap, saying that the synthesis
between them is pivotal in pushing the economy forward.

But Santiago is not convinced of its feasibility unless the government recognises the need to cut down on the highly bloated civil service and red tapes, which have turned off many investors.

A recent World Economic Forum (WEF) report showed Malaysia’s investment appeal dropping from 17 to 42. It cited the need for institutional reforms should Malaysia wish to see itself compete with its economically stronger neighbours like Indonesia and Thailand.

None of the initiatives under the ETP have incorporated the suggestions by the WEF report, said Santiago and this has become a stumbling block to Malaysia’s economic growth.

Focus on developing talents

Santiago said Malaysia must focus more on developing human capital and strengthening the domestic market rather than relying heavily on foreign investments and technology, which is detrimental to the country’s target for an innovation-driven economy.

“What we need is a proper reform of the education system where we can produce students with talents and build the economy on this,” he said.

The Najib administration was forced to concede that it is losing local talents coupled with capital outflows and is striving to find ways to retain them.

However, observers, economists and opposition leaders alike, remain unconvinced of all the efforts made by the Najib administration so far to boost the economy.

(雪蘭莪‧沙亞南21日訊)班達馬蘭巴板路木屋居民協會、巴板路木屋搬遷委員會與武吉克拉蓉木屋區搬遷委員會週二提呈備忘錄給雪州地方政府特別遴選委員會,要求儘快徹查有關地區的發展計劃是否已脫離當初計劃、巴生市議會在整個計劃的決策中是否涉及濫權。同時,3個協會也希望特別遴選委員會查後能尋找出解決方案,一勞永逸解決這個延宕已久的問題。

有關發展商是在早前到木屋區張貼拆屋的庭令,這令受影響的居民更感不安,擔心一旦正式進行拆屋行動和打樁工程後,再來提出抗議,將為時已晚。

僅保障發展商利益

因此,上述3個委員會在巴生國會議員查爾斯的陪同下,提呈備忘錄給雪州地方政府特別遴選委員會主席哈妮查,要求進行徹查整個發展計劃和尋找解決方案。出席者包括巴板路木屋居協主席洪文泰、委員張玉月、武吉克拉蓉木屋區搬遷委員會主席徐志榮等。

查爾斯說,據瞭解,當初國陣政府在把有關兩個木屋區的地段批給中央政府的一家子公司進行發展時,已擬定附帶條件,包括發展商不能以有關展計劃進行牟利,而是以社會利益為主,以及興建多少間廉價屋、中廉價屋和排屋等。

他說,但是如今據他們所知,有關發展計劃已變質為一個大型的綜合性商業區,建有霸級市場等的商業用途,這已違反和抵觸當初的附帶條件,且明顯的是在保障發展商,而非是保障居民的權益。

"因此,這讓人質疑地方政府在這整個計劃當中是否涉及濫權,我們希望特委會能對此展開徹查,並重新審核上述兩個木屋區的發展計劃。"

查爾斯也吁請徹查工作能儘快進行,最好是能在近三四週內完成,因為一旦發展商動工後,就難有作為。

另一方面,有關發展商答應作出1對1(1間屋子對1間屋子)的賠償方式,但居民不滿發展商只給予1400方尺的屋子面積,居民要求面積能提高至1900至2000方尺。

居民也同時要求雪州政府指示巴生市議會,向發展商發出停工令,直至有關的調查報告出爐後。

居民自稱是開墾者

巴板路木屋搬遷委員會主席洪馬再也澄清說,他們並非市議會所指的是非法木屋居民,而是當地的開墾者。

他說,他們在當地居住都已超過60年,比起市議會的成立還要早,所以他們的地段怎麼可能會在市議會的圖測內,以此理由將他們定為非法木屋居民是極為不公平的。

"自有關發展計劃在約7年多前開始,巴生市議會就一直在扮演著'主導'的角色,甚至包括援引緊急法令逼遷居民。"

此外,他也提到據他們瞭解,地方政府在作出賠償金給搬遷的居民時,當中的居民竟包括100戶馬來家庭,但實際上,巴板路木屋區多以華裔和印裔為主,即使有馬來家庭相信也只有一兩家,何來的近百家?

巴板路木屋區在初時共約有900戶家庭,而武吉克拉蓉則有300戶,但目前巴板路僅有130至150戶,而後者則只剩25戶。

交地方政府委會討論

雪州地方政府特別遴選委員會主席哈妮查說,她會把兩個木屋區面對的問題帶上地方政府委員會進行討論,並展開內部調查。

她說,特委會將會傳召涉及的人士和單位進行對話,他們包括3個委員會代表、市議會主席、縣長及發展商等。

"我們會儘快展開調查和作出結論,以便能尋覓有效的解決方案。"

詢及是否也會傳召班達馬蘭州議員劉天球出席對話會,她表示不會傳召對方出席,但會針對解決方案,咨詢對方的意見。
