Bring GST back? Dr M says govt will consider if people want it


PUTRAJAYA: The government will study calls to reintroduce the Goods and Services Tax, if that is what the people want, says the Prime Minister.


“If people believe it is better, we will study it.

“We will study if it (GST) is better than SST,” said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad after launching the Security and Public Order Policy on Thursday (Oct 3).

Asked if the government could announce the re-introduction of GST in the 2020 budget, he said that would be difficult, as budget would be tabled next week.

“Maybe we can do it later,” he said.

Budget 2020 will be tabled in Parliament on Oct 11.
