马来西亚中华工商联合会对第十大马计划发布看法

首相已在6月10日公布了总发展开销为2300亿令吉的第十大马计划,经济增长每年达6%至6.5 %,预期在2015年将财政赤字减至国内生产总值的2.8 %,目标是国家经济将能在2020年迈入高收入经济。经济的成长将靠私人界做主导,政府将大力推动官民领域伙伴模式(PPP)以确保双方均分风险与回酬。

由于外来投资萎缩,本地财团又不断向外投资发展,政府必须大力鼓励本地私人界在国内再投资。然而政府一面说实行一个马来西亚政策,让各族人民有平等的机会,另一方面在第十大马计划中,又强调除了继续落实土著持至少30% 股权目标,还要扩大土著参与经济的评估标准至金融及非金融资产,如地产、店面、甚至雇用专才方面。这种政策不但增加非土著的忧虑,也会影响吸引外来投资的努力。商联会认为政府应采取更开放的政策,让经济及市场更自由地操作。

为了减少赤字,政府必须减少开销,而目前的政策是关注在减少津贴方面,却没有全面检讨管理失当所带来的纰漏。有的开销的确是可以节省,但津贴的目的是要照顾低收入人民。如果由于错误的制度及执行的偏差所造成的诸多弊端,而仓促取销津贴,将导致生产成本及物价高涨,直接影响民生及出口。政府在第十大马计划中,并没有提到津贴对经济的冲击。事实上,政府应逐步减少津贴,以减缓其对民生及经济的冲击,同时设立更严谨的机制以管制开销。

在第十大马计划公共私人伙伴计划中(PPP),政府已鉴定了52项总额约630亿令吉的高效应计划。这些计划能提升大马的公共交通系统,提升我国的生产力,推动大马经济的转型。长达150公里的地下捷运也将能减轻首都吉隆坡的交通堵塞。

商联会欢迎第十大马计划的数项利商措施,如增加30亿令吉拨款予营运资本担保计划,成立30亿令吉的工业重整担保基金,及推出5亿零吉的盈利分享革新基金。

以往很多计划都不能达到预期的效果,主要原因是政府官员执行不力,也经常出现偏差。政府必须确保第十大马计划全面公平和有效的执行,才能达到所定的目标。

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.
