Malaysia is a blessed country with much natural resource like rubber, tin, petroleum, fishes and others. Why we are not utilizing them and make benefits of them for the good of society? Sometimes, I would think that why so many youngsters leave Malaysia and go abroad to work. Of course, the most attractive factor is money, living environment and safety. I know that at past our money currency was almost equivalent with Singapore. But looking at our current currency, we are much lower than Singapore, Euro, Australian and others major countries currency.
I'm not a financial expert who has the right comment and analyze on our Malaysia Ringgit performance. I notice that our Ringgit is much decrease in value. Definitely we don't need to be a financial expert to realise that our ringgit's value is decreasing terribly. Look at Singapore, they have limited space or land to develop their economy. They have no choice rather than depend to only several economic fields. At the same time, what’s wrong with Malaysia? We have everything here, but 100,000 of Malaysian working in Singapore today.
We always know how to compare with others countries, but correct me if I am wrong that the comparison made was always with poorer performance countries. I don’t really understand this. Why we don’t want to improve our nation by comparing to the developing and developed countries? We had already achieved independence more than half century years.
Hope our leaders not always feel satisfied with what we have achieved because there is still much room to improve. Learn from Singapore if we wish to become a economic powerhouse in the region.
