7.30pm to 10.30pm. The
interesting topic on “IMPACT OF THE GENERAL ELECTION 2004 ON
ECONOMY, FINANCE & BUSINESS” was presented by Dr. Hoo Ke
Ping and there are 25 students attended this gathering.
Below are the matters
discussed and raised by Dr. Hoo which may influence the economic,
finance and business situations in Malaysia after the general election
Election result: Barisan National is able to get 80% of the
seats (170 or above)/Total 215 seats.
i) Basis: 1999 was the worst year yet BN got 147/190 MP seats
ii) All negatives of 1999 have been erased.
New Positives – eg: Anti-corruption; People are satisfied
with the duty so far carried out by the new Prime Ministers
Opposition: Poor Cooperation
No better Alternative
Economy should be good but not excellent: No way to repeat the
1990’s high growth
Stock Market: Temporary surge shall see sell-off after big
victory because clean sweep is expected.
Foreign Fund will only return when US dollar may be stabilized
sometime (or latest) by June 2004, but equity(stock) cannot repeat the
1990’s CI, 1300
Business: Domestic growth shall be “FLAT” due to DFI
(Direct Foreign Investment) out-flowing to China.
In fact, local manufacturers have/or is leaving as well.
MIC (China Made) goods are sweeping Malaysia SMI forcing the
closure of business.
Domestic Consumption is badly affected.
Future growth depends on “Drastic Policy Shift” &
cabinet changes. “Test”: If not, not much hope for robust growth
Besides, the students also give their
opinions and did not agree with Dr. Hoo for certain matters, there is
one session where Dr. Hoo believed that Barisan Nasional might not be
able to win up to 174 seats and some students challenged that if BN
won more than 174 seats, Dr.Hoo shall give a farewell dinner to them.
After a short break at 9.00pm, we continued with
question and answer session, many students asked about the election
and their relevant jobs. Every participants was satisfied and happy
with the fruitful talks given by Dr. Hoo and at the same time enjoyed
the food and beverages served.
