SHAH ALAM, May 3 — The government is training more than 500 speakers to explain the Goods and Services Tax (GST) to the people.
Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Ahmad Maslan said the government is taking proactive measures to ensure that all segments of society understand GST and how it will affect them.
“This is neccessary as the people’s understanding of GST is still low,” he told reporters after a Selangor Umno information programme, here today.
He said Malaysia’s implementation of GST would make the taxation system more transparent, effective, efficient and increase competitiveness.
The implementation of GST would bring more benefits to the people, traders as well as the country and unlike the lies spread by irresponsible parties.
Ahmad, who is also Umno information chief, urged Umno divisions nationwide to organise awareness programmes so that party members could get the correct information about current issues. — Bernama
