The 1Week That Was (10 – 16 Oct 2011)

Generally speaking, risks are inevitable, but we need to take measures to understand them. Then can we transform this understanding into on-the-ground opportunities. (International Venture Capital Symposium 2011)
The energy and effervescence of the youth are a huge inspiration for me. A job well done by ex-trainees of Khidmat Negara for their performances during the Kami Anak 1Malaysia’ assembly.
Congratulations to the 560 owners of the first PR1MA affordable homes, hopefully it gives fresh hope for you and your families. I am optimistic about PR1MA’s ability in improving the livelihood of the lower-income and Malaysia as a whole.
I reminded the Indian community that the feeling and sentiment that Malaysia is the homeland of all races must be present in the hearts of all Rakyat. The Indians must be confident that Malaysia, their homeland, can provide them a better future. (1Malaysia Deepavali Carnival 2011)
I reaffirmed the stand that the NEP will not be abolished. However, it needs some adjustments to improve the weaknesses of the existing system. I am not interested in the ‘Economic Rent Seekers’ but what really matters now are Malays with the ‘know-how’ and not the ‘know-who’. (PM Unplugged – Versi Budak MARA)
