A stronger economy would enable the Malaysian government to bring about development to every corner of the country, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Speaking on the upgrade of the country’s credit outlook by Fitch Ratings, he said the improvement showed that the government’s policies had brought a positive impact to national development, NewsNow reported.

“You may ask how this affects you. When our economy is stronger, our revenue will increase and this will make it easier for the government to implement a more wholesome development for the entire country.

“More people will be able to enjoy development through our various projects,” he said before breaking fast at the Kampung Merchong Mosque on Friday.

The upgrade also meant that the leadership of Umno and Barisan Nasional had successfully gained the confidence of international ratings bodies, he said on his way to the event, where he surveyed new houses, agropolitan projects and mosques.

“This is a sign of success. I could not have done this if the country’s administration was weak,” said Najib, who is the Pekan MP.

He also asked the Kampung Merchong villagers to continue placing their faith in the government and in him as their MP.

“We can take cover under a shady tree and this new mosque of Kampung Merchong is among the fruits from that tree that we have defended and nurtured,” said Najib.
