马来西亚中华工商联合会针对赌球执照争议,促请各方面以国家利益为重解决问题

马来西亚中华工商联合会对政府批准赌球执照引发争议风波表示关注。

商联会文告指出,各种形式的非法赌博活动在我国与日俱增,非法赌博集团无孔不入,若政府未加以规范和控制,就会衍生难以控制的经济、社会和家庭问题,进而扰乱社会秩序。正因为这样,我国政府将赌马业、赌场、万字票和博彩业合法化。

现有的合法赌业为我国政府带来巨额的税收。根据一项统计显示,在去年马来西亚的总税收是1586亿元,其中赌博业的税收,包括公司税,总共是30亿,占总税收近2%。这笔税收用在国家各方面的开销。在马来西亚,所有合法赌业的直接员工高达1万3千人;代理的间接员工则有6千7百余人,总计是近2万人。

一向反对开设赌场的新加坡经过45年的建国后,发现赌博业若能良好规划和控制,不失为政府的一大经济来源。新加坡合法化赌球业,单就赌球业的税收,去年高达8亿7千8万令吉。还有香港作为中国的特区,也是通过赛马公会合法化赌球业,去年则有14亿令吉的收入;澳门回归中国后让赌业一枝独秀的发展,管制下的赌业也不失为稳定澳门经济与社会的重要因素。

我国中央政府经过23年的思前想后,再发出赌球执照,乃是为了进一步有效打击日趋猖獗的非法赌球活动。虽然商联会一向不主张也不鼓励人民参与赌博,惟赌球不合法化,许多人会转向地下投注站投注,在无需现金下注或向非法卜基或大耳窿借贷,导致债台高筑,衍生诸多社会问题,影响国家发展。政府批准赌球执照必须施以严格条件,人民在受管制的情况下投注,可减少非法赌博活动所带来的不良影响。以我国非法赌球营业额一年高达200亿至300亿令吉之间来算,政府每年将收取的税收是介于10亿至30亿令吉之间。

商联会希望不论哪一家公司获得赌球执照,都能妥善管理,并促请政府明确规定有关公司,每年将部分盈余捐助慈善与教育用途,回馈社会。

商联会希望发放赌球执照的争议能以国家社会经济利益为重,尽早获得解决。

Press Statement by Tan Sri William Cheng


President of The Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia


(31-3-2010)



PROPOSED SECOND NORTH-SOUTH HIGHWAY

The business sector reads with much interest the proposal for a second North-South Highway to be promoted under the Private Finance Initiative scheme. ACCCIM fully supports this proposal to give the commercial sector an alternative and alleviate the congestion on the present North-South Highway. Efficient land transport and road networks are keystones for commerce and essential for productive and cost effective delivery of products and services especially for exports. It also serves to unlock potential land use and create values associated with it.



This second North-South Highway has been proposed as a private-sector project but its implementation has been delayed. It is incumbent upon the promoters to carry out feasibility studies and to bear the commercial risks. So long no public funding is involved and there is no recourse to the Government, this project should be positively supported and approved.



It is not unexpected that PLUS may react to this proposal citing that the current highway is still under-utilised. North-South Highway users do experience from time to time congestions at many sections of the highway causing frustrations and loss business and productivity. Expansion of capacities should be planned well ahead in order to avoid toll-payers from suffering delays and traffic congestions in the coming years. Besides, by having a second highway allow road users choice and create competition to ensure that highway concessionaires will constantly upgrade and improve their capacities and service in order to remain competitive.



Each new highway opens up the hinterland and allow developments to become viable. New towns can be created for new industrial and residential developments creating employment opportunities and economic activities contributing to economic growth.



ACCCIM fully supports the proposal for a second North-South Highway to spur growth and give road users alternatives and choice and encourage competition to enjoy the competitiveness in the cost of doing business.



第二波私营化计划 - 商联会文告

总会长丹斯里钟廷森发表文告

第二波私营计划

工商界对于首相拿督斯里纳吉于香港举行的第十三届瑞士信贷证券投资人说明会宣布‘第二波私营计划’甚感兴趣。

从以前的私有化浪潮崛起,产生许多概念如公私伙伴关系(PPP),私人融资计划(PFI),建造营运及移交(BOT),和建设租赁和转让(BLT)。透明度及公开招标方式是这些概念最基本原则。

我们希望第二波私营计划能将这些基本原则为前提,在没有公开招标之前不能有任何直接谈判。

政联公司也应与其他私营机构一起参与投标,并不能享有特别待遇,必须严格的审查来衡量其竞争优点。

私营化有助于开发潜在商业机会。私营化应视为一个私营机构,其机构不能作为一个专营机构,不能享有特别条款或提供补贴。

私营化应鼓励竞争及让消费者和用户有选择最好的服务提供者,而不是依赖于一个专营私营化机构。

商联会希望积极参与研发第二波私营化计划的方针。
