KUALA LUMPUR, June 20 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak appeared to go on a stump for the Barisan Nasional (BN) government today, warning the Chinese business community here that their assets and wealth may “evaporate” unless there is “political certainty and stability”.
The prime minister appealed to the community to “work together” with the government to ensure such stability is maintained, saying that lessons could be learned from the current euro zone crisis, the US economic slowdown, and events in North Africa.
“You have worked very, very hard to accumulate assets and wealth in country but those asset and wealth can decline and even evaporate if we don’t work together to ensure more political certainty and stability in the country,” he said in his opening address at the Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Malaysia’s (ACCCIM) 66th annual general meeting here.
