KUALA LUMPUR: Some say Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s growth target for Malaysia is unrealistic, but he can count on the solid faith of at least one person—his wife.
The irrepressible Rosmah Mansor played economist today and predicted that “we should be able to achieve six percent if not more” in annual growth unless “something catastrophic” happens.
Several opposition MPs have said the target, set under Najib's maiden economic plan, was unrealistic considering the lack of foreign direct investments and the brain drain crisis.
But Rosmah, speaking to reporters at Parliament House, begged to differ.
"They must have done their calculations before setting the target," she said.
"Otherwise they would not mention six percent as a figure. He (Najib) was not the only one who did the budget. Other officers, other relevant ministers put their heads together to come up with the figure. I’m sure it wasn’t plucked from the air."
She said there was nothing unrealistic about the target considering the current economic environment.
"Please, they have their ways of getting to that figure or to make that conclusion that six percent is achievable,” she said. “God willing, the economy will improve and no more recession.”
