PM Anwar: Malaysians well-equipped to unleash economic potential

KUALA LUMPUR, April 12—Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said he is confident in Malaysians’ ability to realise the country’s potential in economic development, especially in high-value investments. 

Sharing a video report from the World Economic Forum Facebook page on Malaysia’s growing potential in the semiconductor industry today, Anwar said the Madani government is committed to building a new, high-tech and innovation-driven future for the country. 

“With high-value investments from global firms, resulting in high-paying jobs for more Malaysians. 

“I have absolute confidence in the potential of every Malaysian, in the bright prospects for our economy, and our shared future as a nation,” Anwar posted on his Facebook account.

The World Economic Forum video report highlighted that Malaysia, especially Penang, is emerging as a new semiconductor powerhouse after the state secured US$12.8 billion (US$1 = RM4.76) in foreign direct investment in 2023.
